150: Building a Team Mentality

Whether we know it or not, we're all managing a team. It could be a work team or our family; the concept is still the same. We have to continually work to build our team mentality and to have everyone contributing to the greater good of the group. Today I was joined by Kristi, a busy career woman with three teenagers and a husband who is feeling like she needs to take some things off of her plate. She shares how her family's hectic schedule poses a problem for outsourcing tasks. Together we create a plan for empowering her family members to take ownership of their assigned responsibilities. I discuss how outsourcing gives others the gift of being able to uplift us and the role communication plays in building a team mentality.

Did you know that socks are the number one most requested clothing item from homeless shelters? Well, Bombas is on a mission to change that. They have created the most comfortable socks in the history of feet. And for every pair of socks purchased, Bombas donates one pair to someone in need. They’ve donated over 20 million pairs and counting. They’re made from super soft cotton and every pair is designed with arch support, a seamless toe and a cushioned footbed that’s supportive, but not too thick. Not only do I love wearing my Bombas socks, but I love how they give back.

In fact, my new favorites are their new Merino wool socks. They’re designed to be breathable, dry, never itchy, and just the right amount of thickness. They’re designed with so many special innovations. There’s lots of colors and patterns and length and styles. They’re honestly ideal for the whole family, and they make a great holiday gift. And to make that even easier, you can save 20% on your first purchase when you shop at Bombas.com/paradox.
