Succeeding without losing yourself in the process

"Women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet." -Regena Thomashauer For years I believed I needed to be something and someone other than me in order to succeed. ⁣ ⁣ I didn’t think me as ME could succeed. ⁣ ⁣ I mean, why would I? ⁣ ⁣ Everything I was consuming was telling me directly or indirectly that I had to be different than me to “win”. ⁣ ⁣ The people I saw modeling success were doing so from a...

Force vs. Power

There’s a difference between force + power. ⁣ When it comes to leadership, much of what we see modeled is FORCE. ⁣ It’s domination⁣. It’s hierarchical⁣. Power is different. ⁣ Power doesn’t need to force. It flows. ⁣ Power doesn’t have to demand.

6 steps to reinvention

"For what it's worth, it's never too late to be whoever you want to be." -F. Scott Fitzgerald It’s NEVER too late to begin again... To try something new... To walk away from your current reality and boldly step into the unknown...  It might be scary, but it’s NEVER too late.
