On today’s show, we welcome back an old friend, Tiffany Southerland. Tiff is a graduate of Cornell University and the Pennsylvania Law School. After becoming an accomplished lawyer, Tiff realized that although she was great at law, she had lost her love of life and began to redefine what career and success meant for her. It was in this transition that she founded Four Corners Coaching. Four Corners started as a blog and evolved into a company where Tiff helps people redefine what success means to them and works with them to develop strategies to leverage those strengths across all areas of their lives.
