Penny Pennington – Live and Work with Purpose


Penny is Managing Partner at Edward Jones. She is one of the 41 women leading a Fortune 500 company in 2021.

In this episode Lauren and Penny discuss:

  •  Empowering women to set sights on leadership positions
  •  The difference between Success and Significance
  •  Advice on how women can transform their lives and the world around them, and achieve new heights in their career and purpose
  •  How do you understand and clarify your purpose

 Key Takeaways:

  •  Success is often tied with financial value. Instead of just going for a successful life, go for a significant life. Think about how you can impact others’ lives positively.
  •  Let go of the mindset of “if I can see it, I can be it” – you don’t have to see a woman in that chair before you can imagine yourself in that chair. You can be the first to get there.
  •  Never ever disqualify yourself. Start saying yes – even to the things that terrify you.
  •  Say Yes to the uncomfortable parts of the learning.
  •  Empathetic leadership: “Don’t execute the command I gave you, execute the command that I should’ve given you, had I known what you know.”

 “Do not demure from proclaiming passionately what gets you up every day.” – Penny Pennington
