Episode 03 - Strategies for a Fulfilling Life with Kristin Gustafson Weber ’90
In this episode, we spoke with Kristin Gustafson Weber '90 about building a fulfilling life, tapping into her role as business owner, mom, and world-class athlete.
We talked a lot about her history and how her parents, close friends and educational experiences shaped and supported her interests from a very early age, enabling her to follow her passions and turn them into a successful and fulfilling life. We dove into some of the habits and behaviors that have allowed her to flourish in both business and athletics and that have helped her cultivate a synergistic lifestyle that facilitates both. Perhaps most importantly, Kristin gave us insight into living a life of synergy, which allows her to still be the kind of parent she wants to be, which I think she would say is ultimately her greatest accomplishment. What’s Kristin’s secret sauce for flourishing in all three of these important areas? A little bit of focus on the “me,” or her self-care, and a heck of a lot of support from the “we,” her community of close friends and family. Something I think any busy parent or top performer can relate to.
