We've all heard the stories about people who leave their unfulfilling, dead-end jobs to pursue a passion project. But what about the people who feel the persistent pull to leave an established and successful career to chase their dreams?
Dr Nicole R Robinson, my guest today, is one of those people. Today, she's the Founder and CEO of Cultural Connections by Design, a diversity consulting company that distinguishes itself by providing diversity education — not diversity training. A teacher through and through, Nicole pursued this path after a decades-long career in education.
I was so excited to hear more from Nicole about her decision to take this leap of faith, how she handled the unexpected challenges, and so much more.
"We can only make decisions based on the knowledge we have at the time. As leaders, we have to be nimble... and we have to be mindful that this isn't a seamless, step by step process. Be ready for the ups and downs, find those mentors who help us to navigate and push through those hard times."
