Owning Your Career Journey & Leveling up along the way

Amplifying Black Excellence

Often times people are ashamed of their career journey especially of where they may have started & the zig zags and ups & downs. As a career pivoter several times including during the 2008 recession, Renee encourages, inspires and teaches people how to cultivate a growth mindset to understand their journey ( the zig & zags) is as important as their destinations. And to always remember to level up along the way.
