2015 was a year for the books here at Propel. We have been blown away by the response from women all over the globe, and we haven’t even reached our one year mark! From our Propel Collective, events, and blog, we love that Propel is connecting women from all spheres of life who are learning to lead well wherever they find themselves.
On our Propel blog we wanted to spur honest conversations by publishing articles that felt like sitting down over coffee with your best friend. No pretense, no formalities, just real talk. From addressing the question, “Is God calling me to lead”, to “How to lead in the midst of fear and trepidation.”
Being a woman in our crazy, fast-paced world often translates into feeling like a circus clown juggling way too many balls, and hoping that nothing hits the ground. We’ve gathered together fellow women who are all too familiar with this experience to lend their wisdom to the Propel community.
To celebrate a year of amazing content we want to share the top ten posts shared on social media. So find yourself a quiet moment (which we know are few and far between), a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, and take in some of the wisdom 2015 brought us.
