Laura DiBenedetto

Laura DiBenedetto headshotThe concept of authenticity and vulnerability has been a running theme in this show. But in this week of Tactical Leadership, Laura DiBenedetto will take that further and show us how she is planning to rid the world of insecurities. As an author, speaker, and unapologetically authentic person, Laura DiBenedetto will share with us how she manifested her self-acceptance at an early age. She started her business at the young age of 19, and she retired at still the young age of 37 to pursue her global mission of spreading true happiness.

We will also delve into a deeper approach to authenticity and self-security, as this connects to the true motivation behind people’s deeds. Her book, “Six Habits” is a complete guide for self-acceptance and being true to yourself. Let’s jump right in and join Laura’s light side!

Tactical Friday: Living in the Light Side with Laura DiBenedetto

Changing your life is just as simple as changing your everyday habits. After all, it’s the small things that make the biggest difference.  Welcome back to Tactical Leadership! Today, I welcome back Laura DiBenedetto to share with us her 90-day habit mastery program. This program is designed to make us used to the light side of our habits, which will ultimately bring out our better selves.
