Sometimes it’s difficult to shift and approach what we have to leave behind to get to our next level. It’s important that you are making sure that you’re advocating for where you’re supposed to be, whether that be in your current workplace or moving out of that workplace to another or your own healthcare entity and business. There’s power in movement, but there’s also power in staying where you are and leveraging where you’re at for maximum success. To where you want to be. To access that power, you need to plant yourself so you have the soil, the sun, all of the specific things that you need to grow.
By the way, our Passion to Profit Masterclass is this upcoming weekend. In this transformational workshop we’ll be sharing the 5 shifts that women of color in healthcare must make in order to grow businesses that create impact and income (even if you’re still working a full-time job)! If you have a desire to launch and grow your own business for social impact and health justice, you won’t want to miss out.Reserve your seat here.
