You’ve Got Lael Episode 29: Cultivating Joy with Marli Williams

You've got Lael

My word for 2022 is JOY. The last few years have taken a lot out of us and I felt like it was missing from my life.

Cultivating joy has become my new hobby. I'm being more intentional about cultivating and experiencing more joy every day - through music, my cat, my kids, a great show, a captivating book, a walk with a friend, working out, an excellent cup of coffee. It takes some practice, but life is feeling so much better.

Marli Williams is one of those people I met who just exudes joy and enthusiasm. She has found her calling inspiring and leading others to live life with more play, creativity, and joy. I knew she would be the perfect person to talk to about JOY and intention for this year.

Marli Williams is an international interactive keynote speaker, courage cultivator, and joy instigator who first fell in love with transformational leadership as a camp counselor. After getting her Bachelor’s Degree in Outdoor Education and her Master’s degree in Education, along with 15 years of leadership experience and training, Marli decided to give herself permission to be the “Professional Camp Counselor” she knew she was born to be. Now she helps incredible people and organizations stop waiting for permission and start taking bold action to be the leaders and changemakers they’ve always wanted to be through the power of PLAY. When she’s not speaking on big stages, consulting with high-level leaders or training facilitators, you can find Marli running Camp Yes, her annual Adult Summer Camp for Women.
