Carol has a precious way of looking at life. After a decades’ long career helping businesses continue to innovate in the long-term, Carol has found an approach to her work that integrates her Mohawk First Nations heritage and “logical” business economics. She has been called a “positive contrarian” by peers and her students for how she tries to embed traditional, holistic teachings in modern-day theory. We have a wonderful conversation about how to exercise our own capabilities to find out what we are made of, how we can trade passion for more sustainable caring, and how to make the most out of every day by waking up with the aim of staying humble and to learn something new.

ABOUT THE HOST
The ‘Mighty Pete Lonton’ from the ‘Mighty 247’ company is your main host of ‘Fire in The Belly’.
Pete is an entrepreneur, mentor, coach, property Investor, and father of three beautiful girls. Pete’s background is in project management and property, but his true passion is the ‘Fire in The Belly’ project itself. His mission is to help others find their potential and become the mightiest version of themselves. Pete openly talks about losing both of his parents, suffering periods of depression, business downturn and burn-out, and ultimately his years spent not stoking ‘Fire in the Belly’. In 2017, at 37 years of age that changed, and he is now on a journey of learning, growing, accepting, and inspiring others.
Pete can connect with people and intuitively asks questions to reveal a person’s passion and discover how to live their mightiest life. The true power of ‘Fire in The Belly’ is the Q&A’s - Questions and Actions section.
The ‘Fire in The Belly’ brand and the programme is rapidly expanding into podcasts, seminars, talks, business workshops, development courses, and rapid results mentoring.
