Exploring the Ripple Effect, with Kelly Hatfield

Episode 167:

My name is Kelly Hatfield, and I’ve been a business leader and part of the recruiting industry for more than 25 years. If this is your first time listening to the Absolute Advantage podcast, welcome! My goal with Absolute Advantage is to bring you valuable wisdom from some of the world’s most successful business leaders and entrepreneurs. Each episode is all about sharing fresh visions and new perspectives from many top voices in the business world, helping you to shorten your path to success.

I’d like to share a little more of my background with you. I’m a successful entrepreneur several times over, as well as a certified speaker, certified coach and trainer for the John Maxwell Team, and certified High-Performance Coach. I have dedicated myself to helping others succeed, and I believe strongly in making a positive impact on the people around me.

It’s this goal of having a positive ripple effect that brought about the Absolute Advantage podcast in the first place. This podcast is for business leaders who want to level-up your skills and further your own personal growth so that you can maximize your potential… and become your best self. Thank you so much for joining me.


Long-time listeners have heard me mention my profound belief in the ripple effect in many previous episodes of Absolute Advantage. So, today I wanted to really take a deep dive into the transformative power of the ripple effect and how it has touched my own life. This is an incredibly important topic for me, and so I’ve decided that for this episode I’ll be speaking with you about my own experiences and thoughts rather than inviting a guest to join me.

I can’t stress enough how closely I hold this topic to my heart; it truly is the catalyst behind so much of what I do. The ripple effect is a guiding light that has been present throughout my life, informing my choices and helping to keep me grounded. From my personal life to my professional work, the ripple effect has helped me maintain focus on the things that matter.

In this episode of Absolute Advantage, I want to share with you how the ripple effect can be a force for positivity in your own life. I believe that the more good we put into the world, the more we get back in return. This has proven to be true time and time again in my life, as you’ll hear in the episode. As always, thank you for spending time with me today. I truly hope the ripple effect from this episode will help bring wonderful things into your own life and the lives of those around you.
