Everyone can expect to encounter a series of challenges throughout the course of their lives and careers. Some are small, short-term impediments that test our persistence or creativity to overcome a problem. Others are really big, hairy obstacles that last for many years and may make or break us in the end. Navigating through such incredibly strenuous times helps us realize just what we’re made of. In this episode, we meet a very successful speaker and trainer who shares her story of going blind at age eight, navigating through school and college, and going on to realize her dream of teaching public school. She shares why she was so passionate to teach and what she learned about herself along the way. She also describes some of the messages she imparts to her speaking audiences today, along with her seven leadership principles. If you’ve got something trying to hold you back in life or work, you’ll be glad you tuned in for her wisdom and inspiration.
