There are standards and expectations, and even limiting beliefs
that women hold on to in business. It’s easy to do enough, yet when
we don’t get the results we want (when it gets hard) we must move
into the uncomfortable. And, when we are feeling held back our
reactions and motivations may be holding us back instead of lifting
us up. This program is filled with candidness, tips, and practical
advice to increase confidence. Jessica Dewell hosts panelists Susan
Finch, Julie Thenell, and Tonya Dalhaus to discuss how to Build and
Use Our Network.
