“Feminine leadership brings the power of looking inside to the world of business.” One of the most common stories is that of the Hero’s Journey
I've always been an introvert and a woman—two traits which aren't exactly relished by the business world. Yet I am also a long-time leader in my organiziaton.

It was an exciting time of learning new things and my capacity for growth was enormous.
Keep breaking those barriers, ladies!
