The Essence of Appreciation with Emily Buckley

The Essence of Appreciation with Emily Buckley

This episode of the Success Fundamentals Podcast features Emily Buckley, Chief Operating Officer of The Cliffs Climbing + Fitness. Being a lifelong athlete has taught Emily the value of hard work. In her experience, there is nothing quite like setting a goal, doing the hard work, and achieving the success that she had envisioned.

This translated in her career as a collegiate athlete and is now being manifested in her life as an entrepreneur. Emily reflects on her past successes, including being recognized as a visionary in the health and wellness space, and on her dreams for her future self and the industry she is in.

Emily shares her own thoughts on opportunity and how ideas can pop up on future endeavors during the most mundane day-to-day activities. She also advises others that the road to success includes networking, treating people with respect, and always giving your best to make sure you stand out.

07:11 "Unless you'd go to the gym and put your headphones in and don't talk to anyone, but a lot of fitness it's like community-oriented and using other people and the relationships that you have with other people in order to drive your further successes."

08:42 "There's something in me that makes me just want to try my best at everything that I do and I think that's a blessing and a curse... But I just really enjoy the process of working hard towards something and seeing it come to fruition."

10:54 "I think that the ability to be able to pivot is a non-negotiable if you want to be successful. You just have to be able to look at a situation and say, okay, either I'm happy with this, but what else can be done with this? Or I'm unhappy with this, I need to change course."

23:37 "The goal of everything right now is so that, later on in life, I can sit back and allow those revenue streams to just continue to grow and not have to trade so much of my time for them."

33:59 "If we're thinking about school projects, I would be the kid that went over the top and delivered something way more than a third grader should deliver on a science project."
