Speaking of Rebels
Guest: Shelley Paxton – author of Soulbbatical: A Rebel’s Guide to Finding Your Best Life
On this podcast we are speaking rebels with my friend Shelley Paxton, author of Soulbbatical: A
Corporate Rebel’s Guide to Finding Your Best Life. Shelley was the former CMO at Harley
Davidson and left her sexy career to start a new one without any promises it would fly. Well it
did and today, Shelley speaks about how her need for her own soulbbatical not only gave her
permission to live life on her terms, it gave her a platform to help liberate all of us by bringing
out our own inner rebel.
