Lydia Slaby is a speaker, advocate, consultant, and the author of Wait, It Gets Worse, a memoir chronicling Lydia’s journey after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of thirty-three. Lydia identifies as a “change witch” and is passionate about helping people and organizations thrive in the face of change. In addition to serving on several non-profit boards and advising an array of organizations, Lydia served as the Massachusetts Deputy Chief of Staff for Administration and Finance under Governor Patrick, and she was formerly a corporate lawyer in Chicago. Lydia graduated from Northwestern University with her JD-MBA, and previously attended Brown University and Harvard.
Lydia joins me today to discuss her book Wait, It Gets Worse, and some of the universal life lessons and insights that readers can gain from reading the memoir. She shares her story and discussed how her cancer journey put a stop sign in the road, allowing her the chance to pause and move forward with renewed direction and self-awareness. Lydia also shares the importance of tuning into all aspects of ourselves – mind, body, and spirit – and why it is crucial to ensure that you are indeed a human being, not merely a human doing.
“I wanted other people to understand that they could leave their life before they were forced into it.” – Lydia Slaby
