Meet Lisa Kloeble, one of Refined’s Experts
What is the last book you read? David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell, which was a great read! It was also full of really valuable counter-intuitive insights for entrepreneurs.
What Netflix show are you obsessed with? Big Little Lies. It’s interesting because you never know what goes on behind closed doors and I love how it centres on women’s lives as wives and mothers, meanwhile intricately weaving in the relationships each woman has with each other.
What song makes you dance like nobody's watching? Maniac from the 1980s movie Flashdance. It reminds me of my dancing days.
What would your best Friday night be? Babysitting my grandkids.
Name one characteristic every business leader possesses. There is no doubt that every business leader possesses the ability to inspire people, but I also believe great leaders should be vulnerable. Being vulnerable creates a safe work environment and being able to share times of weakness is a way to earn trust from those you lead.
What do you attribute to your success? I’d say focus, creativity, innovation and persistence. I have implemented organizational and client management systems, which help me stay on track, and I time block, which helps me stay focused. I am very persistent and work hard to overcome obstacles. I also like to be creative, which goes hand-in-hand with innovation, and I have a wonderful assistant who makes sure our ideas are implemented. I am very fortunate!
Your daily rituals include: Taking time to reflect and express gratitude. I try to walk our dogs every day, which is a great way to relax my busy mind, as well.
What do you love most about your job? My clients and their stories, and the opportunity to help them through life’s transitions. I also love having the opportunity to be able to give back to my community.
What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self? Be brave, be bold and most importantly, be humble. I think fear can hold us back from trying new things, even things we may be good at and want to explore. Being bold is different than being brave. Being bold is moving forward in confidence. From experience, I know that even if we are good at something, we may not be bold, because we are worried about what people will think. Humble people are more candid, compassionate and charitable. Being humble in your life and business creates a different kind of energy and from there you will have more opportunities!
