If you feel unhappy or powerless at work and in life, it all boils down to one reason.

It’s because you aren't actively participating in creating what you want.

The power to change things starts with using your voice.

Favorite Quotes:

  1. I see talented women getting physically sick because of the stress, anxiety and frustration they're keeping trapped in their bodies.
  2. Helping women transition into new roles isn't what I do, it's a byproduct or a benefit of the work.
  3. If your life is led from a place of fear, instead of a place of opportunity, you will always be looking at sharing your perspective as “risky”, when in fact not sharing is actually the risk.
  4. Why do we end up unhappy in our lives or feel like we’re powerless to create what we want? Because we aren't active participants in creating what we want.
