"2 years ago at the More Than Rubies conference, I found myself raising my hand to a question raised by a conference speaker. "Are you afraid of your own success"? What??? Being a highly motivated individual - one of my life goals is to change the world - I was shocked at my response! I spent a year unpacking why I was afraid of being successful - and how I could move myself out of that mindset.

If you have been holding yourself back - in your career, in your family life, in pursuing your passion or making a difference to others because you are afraid of being successful, this is the session for you. Join me in this thought-provoking and interactive session as we unpack what success looks like for you, identify what is holding you back and strategies for how you can move forward to make success happen for you."
