Ep 112 Being Indispensable Liz Van Vliet

Your Value Star: How Defining Our Virtues Empowers Executive Assistants August 18, 2020

24mins 46 secs

I came up with the concept of My Value Star™ when I was post breast cancer, struggling with a lack of confidence and self belief.

In Chapter 11 of my book “Coming Home from Breastcancerville” I talk about my ‘career wilderness years’ after having children and how I lost touch with what made me invaluable as an employee.

Somehow it took hitting rock bottom due to breast cancer treatment and recovery for me to look at myself differently. Despite feeling lost and unsure of anything I doodled this five-pointed star and identified five qualities that spoke to my value.

That five-pointed star was the first step in me reinventing myself and rebuilding my confidence and self belief.

In this episode I share how My Value Star came about, why I encourage you to spend some time reflecting on your own virtues and I have created a free workbook to help step you through this process.

In this episode I also mention a free webinar I am running on Wednesday 2nd September at midday (AEST). To register go here:
