There are questions every ambitious woman has to answer. And there are a lot of challenges ambitious women have to overcome. It starts with ourselves. That little voice, sometimes as quiet as a whisper in your heart of talking to yourself. What is ambition? How can I make a big difference? How can I have a breakthrough in life? How can I get paid for doing things that I love to do? How do we make this equitable in our relationship? How to silence the noise? Does anyone get me? How can I honor my ambition? Lesle and Nicole answer these questions by sharing some examples from their experience and giving some recommendations for people to lean in and honor their ambition.
