She shares stories of her traveling adventures, and how they shaped her career choices.
We talk about women in leadership, and the challenges she has faced. We get into the winding road of our journey, learning to listen to our gut, and an early “a-ha moment” that changed everything, when she was the only woman in the boardroom. She got clear in that moment – that instead of helping people who already have a ton of money make more money, there was something else could she do… but she wasn’t sure what it would be.
This is a conversation with a bright, passionate, big-hearted woman who works hard to make an impact through her work and how she lives her life. Yes! Listen, enjoy, and please share it with your friends.
