Brave Women at Work

Oct 27, 2022

Have you met someone who stopped you in your tracks significantly? “Wow, I can’t believe she’s doing kind of way?"

My guest today, Miriam Lawrence, is a beautiful example of an inspiring and brave woman, and I knew I had to have her on the show. Why, might you ask? Miriam’s LinkedIn profile is unique because she’s also a powerlifter. Like in 200-pound+ weights.

Miriam started powerlifting at 48 and competing all over the world by the age of 50. And she’s finding a way of integrating her work and her strength training. I love how authentic Miriam is and the moxie she has gained by being in the world's top third of female powerlifters.

During my conversation with Miriam, we discussed the following:

1. How can we find something that lights us up at any age

2. Imposter Syndrome and how to manage it

3. The correlation between physical strength and how we move through the world

4. Our Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) at work

5. How stoicism helps Miriam train her mind and live her life
