Confessions of a WERKaholic is where we share the untold success secrets of fearless female bosses! One major life-changing lesson I’ve learned on my Entrepreneurial journey is that the real power, the true leverage is in people. We learn from one another, we support one another and most importantly, we connect one another. My goal is to always learn at least one lesson from everyone I come in contact with because our connection was no accident. So, in this series I’m sharing wisdom and knowledge through the experience of WERKing women I’m blessed to know.
