On Board: The Modern Gal’s Guide to Success
Mission: Kelly Lynn Adams

It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that people are born leaders. If you don’t feel you’re a natural born leader, that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook when it comes to leadership. In fact, most leaders aren’t born that way. They’re people who have had experiences that showed them that they could, in fact, lead others. Being a great leader doesn’t mean you need to be the smartest or the best. It just means you need to be a good leader! Best of all, this is a skill you can learn.

Kelly Lynn Adams joins me in this conversation to teach you how to be a leader. Kelly is a certified leadership and life coach, writer, speaker, and founder of The After 5 Club, a movement that helps women juggle responsibilities and grow their side hustles. She has helped thousands of women build smart and sustainable businesses and redefine success through shifting their mindset. She helps her clients increase their confidence and step into their divine power.

Your Checklist of Actions to Take

✓ Define your own true meaning of success. Ask yourself what you really want in life and start working to achieve it.

✓ Have confidence in whatever you’re doing or working on. With the right mindset, focus and support, anything can be achieved.

✓ Spare some time for play and fun. Do things that make you feel young and alive to keep you inspired and motivated.

✓ Stop sabotaging your potential with negative thoughts. Be kind to yourself and don’t listen to negativity. Just keep going until you’re where you want to be.

✓ Start creating the life that you want by speaking about it, envisioning it and committing to it 100%.

✓ Take a couple of days to gain a different perspective. Go on a retreat, attend a mastermind group or take a vacation.

✓ Spend time in nature with animals. They have unexplainable healing powers that go above and beyond other methods.

✓ Make money in your zone of genius. Find and pursue what you love and what gives you fulfillment.

✓ Manage your mindset and pay attention to what you consume at all levels – what you’re thinking, watching, experiencing, and eating.

✓ Surrender. Allow. Let go. If things aren’t going your way, surrender and know that the Universe has your back.


O: The other day, I watched a show where they did this scientific experiment with kids—groups of kids, boys and girls and they wanted to see who can remember more words or something like that but what was really interesting to me is that the guide pointed at one of the kids and told that kid, “Okay. Now you’re the captain,” and most kids were so excited but there was one kid that was really, really scared of being the captain. He was tiny, I don’t know, they were maybe five or four, something like that. They asked him, “Why are you scared?” And he said seriously, “You know… because if I cannot remember all the items, I’m going to let everybody down.” He was really stressed out because he was the captain but they kept him the captain. What was really beautiful is that his group won. He was so smart, he was extraordinary. What shifted in his little mind was the idea that he can lead. Woah. he can be a leader. He said, “Okay, next time, I want to be a captain. I like being a captain.” Leadership is something scary. Taking leadership… it’s not that you are natural-born leaders, it’s mostly not that natural. It’s usually something happened or they grow up in an environment that supports them or they make a decision and they saw that they are able to lead others. In order to lead others, you don’t have to be the smartest. You don’t have to know everything that they need to do. You just need to be a good leader. This is a learned skill. Woohoo! Today, we talk a bit about leadership in your own life and in general. We talk about how to find your true power, how to show up powerfully in life. My guest is Kelly Lynn Adams, she is a certified leadership and life coach, writer, speaker, and founder of The After Five Club–which is a movement that helps 9-5ers grow their side hustles while juggling it all. Kelly Lynn has helped thousands of women build smart and sustainable businesses. She has helped women to redefine success through shifting their mindset, increasing their confidence, and stepping into their divine power. Now, without further ado, onto the show. Hi, Kelly. Welcome to Stellar Life podcast.

K: Hello. Thank you so much for having me.

O: Yes, thank you so much for being here. Why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself?

K: Yes. I started a coaching business, it may have been seven or eight years. I actually help women who are in 9 to 5s, really kind of have a side hustle done, and they want to elevate it and grow their businesses. I started a movement called The After Five Club. We really just focus on topics such as; managing their mindset, creating time in their life, and monetizing in their business. That’s kind of who I help from a coaching perspective. I also speak as well and facilitate workshops, and on social media a lot. That’s kind of in a nutshell of who I am and what I’m about.

O: That’s awesome. What do you think women that want to start doing business after their 9 to 5, what is their biggest obstacle?

K: I think there’s a couple of things. I think it’s one, it’s finding the time. Finding the time to, yet again, do another thing, or another thing they want to create. Who has the time to do it all? Because their schedule is so full right now with a full time job or even if they’re a mom—they’re taking care of the family. Honestly, it’s just woman in general. You don’t even have to have a 9 to 5. A lot of my clients are not in 9 to 5s. Some of them actually have full time jobs but I think for women, especially today, we’ve taken on so much, we’re doing more than our mothers and grandmothers I think have done in the past—not saying that they have not done a lot—but I think society is just moving on a faster pace, especially with social media.
