[00:53] Recently you had a conversation from a client and friend who said “Michelle if you want to unleash other women you need to get unleashed yourself.” That was a great story of how in order to serve others we have to be willing to lead by example.
[13:30] In your work how do you find your purpose? Will you describe the journey that it took for you to find it?
[22:05] How have you shed old habits and evolved relationships so you could step into your purpose?
[27:48] How have you used your purpose and gifts, gifts specifically being your people skills, organization, knowledge of infrastructure and systems, to build and lead a community of women?
[35:43] Similar to the oxygen mask when flying…for leadership we have to take care of ourselves in order to take care of others. What are some of the personal and professional habits you developed to be able to show up and lead your community?
[41:42] How do you continue to develop and strengthen your gifts as you lead your community?
[49:03] For women who have a desire to lead a community with purpose, how do we make sure we are building with the right motivations and intentions?
