New View with Joyce Bone
TDR: What issues are you most passionate about in your community?
Joyce: Personal transformation. I am passionate about helping others reach their peak potential.
TDR: What are most of your philanthropy efforts typically directed towards serving?
Joyce: Women and youth. I coach these two groups extensively via my own programs as well as contributing time to others.
TDR: How do you define leadership?
Joyce: Being willing to step up, lead in a collaborative, relational style, while getting work done and having personal responsibility for outcomes.
TDR: How do you define your leadership style?
Joyce: Relational, enthusiastic, collaborative, and frank.
TDR: What would be the most painful lesson that you've learned in life that has helped you become who you are today?
Joyce: The most painful lesson that I've learned in life that has helped me become who I am today: That life is short. There is no reason good enough not to go after what your heart desires most.
TDR: What would people be surprised to know that you had to overcome?
Joyce: A lot! Financial stress, relationship stress, sexual abuse, addiction, deaths. People look at me and think I have it easy. This has never been the case. I have always worked really hard and forced myself to bounce back in difficult times.
TDR: Name 3 leaders that you look up to.
Joyce: My dad, Raymond Cash (late mentor and business partner), and the late Wayne Dyer.
TDR: Name 3 of your favorite books.
Joyce: I read all the time. It would be hard for me to pinpoint 3 favorites. The Four Agreements helped me relationally. Brian Tracy's work is always good and of course my own book was a labor of love, and in my humble opinion, a great book, Millionaire Moms: The Art of Raising a Family and a Business at the Same Time.
TDR: What is your advice for emerging leaders?
Joyce: Get busy. Take action and use the feedback to adjust until you succeed.
TDR: Complete this sentence…5 years ago I was…
Joyce: In a tough place. My brother and father just died.
TDR: Complete this sentence…5 years from now I hope to be…
Joyce: Feeling like all the decades of effort had led up to that time of my life. That I will be able to look around satisfied by where I am at: my family and business flourishing, and my health strong enjoying the fruits of my labor.
TDR: If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be and why?
Joyce: Tough. Because I am resilient.
TDR: What are some of your current initiatives people can help you with?
Joyce: I am building my coaching practice so am always looking for ways to be better and to serve more people. Any influence in those two areas are always appreciated.
