My red hot passion is being an advocate for women and helping them find their bold voices.
But don’t let me fool you, it wasn’t always this way. Before starting a successful radio station I was your average corporate “yes” girl. I said what people wanted to hear. I was bullied in corporate America and then wrongfully terminated for not speaking up. It was a pretty sad saga, but definitely not one that’s unique to me.
Back in those days, I would wake up in the morning and immediately plan my day around how I could get back to bed as fast as possible. I didn’t have anything left to give my job or myself. I was just existing. I was ungrateful, lackluster, and I had lost one thing that was truly mine, my voice.
I had been suppressing my voice and listening to my inner critic—who I lovingly refer to as my “hag in the attic.” I told people what they wanted to hear. I didn’t have a bold voice. I begrudgingly said the words that would keep everyone around me—and the critic inside me—happy.
