THE LIFE YOU LEAD IS THE LEGACY YOU LEAVE
"If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader."
~ Dolly Parton
 
This month, we are celebrating women, leadership, and personal power. I chose this quote by Dolly Parton because she is such a terrific role model and has done so much to uplift the world in her own way. That's really what it's about, too. Living life your way and leaving a meaningful legacy.

What will be your legacy?
INTERRUPT THE STATUS QUO

BADASS ENGAGEMENT
By Katie Macks, SWTR Guest

Since you’re reading this, I imagine you’re ready to be the bold badass leader you know you are, but, you’ve been holding back, tamping yourself down to please others, to fit in and to be accepted, all the while being loyal and dutiful to everyone but you. You have unwittingly given your power away to make others more comfortable around you.
