On today's podcast episode,
where we're taking a close look at how to successfully advocate for
yourself and your business.
I am an expert at this, and I'm not ashamed to say it, both because of my work as a CEO and also because I am a special needs mom.
This has taught me an immense amount about how to stand up and hold boundaries and advocate, even when it's incredibly uncomfortable.
For those of you who are new listeners, I have two children. My eldest is 10. His name is Rocco. He's an amazing child. He has some special needs, including being on the autism spectrum. His verbal abilities are challenged. So he communicates with word approximations and also with an assistive tech device.
It's really been up to me to be his voice for many years. I can say now beyond a shadow of a doubt that you can put me in a meeting room with a dozen other people who do not want what I want for him. I can come out of that meeting with confidence, knowing that I've gotten him exactly what he needs. I am completely unflappable in that work.
So even though today's podcast is around business, it really is a great example of how you're you. Wherever you go and the skills that you learn in your life will support your business, but also your business skills will support your life.
This is an exciting episode. One I've been cooking up for a long time.
