The experiences I have had a genuinely amazing in regards to leadership
I enjoyed the experience but not necessarily what I was doing
This was a massive turning point in my life
Need to get out of this relationship and find something else to do
You can’t send people into war if you are not willing to go yourself
Don’t screw it up
Wanted my team to be successful and our clients to be happy
Gave me a whole new perspective on life
My emotional side did not kick in for quite a few years
I got paid for 40 hours a week but worked 120
I was disconnected to it all
What might I want to do if I was not immersed in work?
Definitely a turning point in my emotional awareness
I knew it was going to be positive
What have I always wanted to do?
To help to heal
Bring that feeling into my heart and spirit
