Play
Read more
I have come to TRULY love these duets...I listen, I learn and each person who shares their brilliance here shifts something for me, personally. Dr. Deena C. Brown was a delight to connect with...here's a little about her... as you dive into our discussion around leading, shifting, the Lies and the Truth.

"I've been there, trapped by the ideas everyone else told me would fit my life. I know what it feels like to live and lead outside the mold. Let me show you how. I'll take your moments of chaos and indecision to create clarity around your ideas and products. You'll always know what to do next after a call with me. That's the SHIFT. Your truth. Your sacrifice. The lies that hold you back. That's where we'll start and center our work."

Offers do not get turned down because of the MONEY… They are turned down because you failed to Understand who the person is and then demonstrate a mutual alignment of career & personal goals to your organization.

The Truth is People turn you down because of the lack of care!

 Today’s Quote:

"Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candor." - Tom Hanks
