About Gallop: The Gallup Strengths Assessment is a powerful tool that helps individuals identify, understand, and maximize their strengths. People that focus on their strengths are more likely to be engaged in their jobs and more likely to report having an excellent quality of life. Most people try and fix their weaknesses but by taking a Strengths Based approach and focusing on what you do well you have exponential success in those areas. We all have natural talent. The idea is to tap into that talent and invest time and energy into what comes naturally to us to really build our strengths. There are 33 million combinations of your top 5 Gallup strengths so truly nobody is as good as you are at what you. There are 34 talent themes total. We are all uniquely different and the more we can capitalize on those differences, the more successful we are in levering our talents on our teams.

Angela Chee’s mission is to help people break through their barriers, step into the spotlight and live their legacy. Now she’s highlighting those people in her brand new — and soon to be wildly successful — podcast the Power of the Only.
We talk the evolution of women, how fear presents itself when we’re over 40 (vs when we were younger) and getting comfortable with our own voice, in whatever life’s season we find ourselves in.
If you’ve ever felt like “the only” — the only woman, the only person of color, the only anything… in your work, community or family… I think this episode — and Angela’s message — will resonate deeply.
Speaking of resonating deeply… a few days back I shared three key ways to support Forty Thrive and help me to build a team of women over 40 in creating more resources for YOU. The response did not disappoint!
And… before our FT membership is even launched, a huge welcome to Christine and Amy!

If you’ve followed online marketing expert Amy Porterfield for more than five minutes, you know she’s constantly tossing out actionable tips and online strategies — it’s her superpower. But as a regular listener of Amy’s podcast, I felt something shift in her several months ago. How she showed up on her show started to feel… well, different.
I wondered… is it because she’s now over 40?
Did she have a coach or confidante pushing her in this new direction?
Was she tired of hiding behind who she thought she should be, instead of who she really is?
Yes, yes, and yes.
Amy shares the pivot she’s taken in her life, both in front of the camera and behind it. Plus, hear how her friends called her out for being one Amy privately, and another when showing up in business.
Amy Porterfield is an online marketing expert and host of the top-ranked business podcast, Online Marketing Made Easy. But before the multiple 7-figure revenues and 250,000+ loyal subscribers…she was a self-proclaimed corporate “yes” girl. She shares how the time she took notes (at a separate table, mind you) for personal development guru Tony Robbins and a table full of men working in marketing that she discovered she wanted a piece of the action.
But it wasn’t all smooth sailing when Amy decided to break out on her own. It wasn’t until she built a successful business filled with consistent clients that she realized she actually haaaaated what she was doing and made a pivot.
That brings us today when she’s killing it in the online game and even expanding her team and creating big goals for the future.
Plus, Amy shares what “Forty Thrive” means to her.
