When I speak to organizations or conferences, I often ask the question “When did you know you had the power to_____.” Each person fills in the blank for herself. Then we discuss the answers with one another.
So after my keynote speech for the New Directions Career Center in Columbus OH (a fantastic organization that helps low income women gain economic self-sufficiency), I had one of those defining moments that reminds me why I travel at every chance to share the No Excuses message of changing how we think about power so that we can embrace it in a positive way.
