Playing Small Moment
Andrea says she still plays small sometimes, and she feels the anxiety that accompanies her fear may always be there for her. She finds herself focusing on the negative comments about her work, so she welcomes positive feedback about the impact she is making.
The Wake Up Call
After hearing her husband describe her as non-technical, Andrea realized she was the person who had been holding herself back. He had used the exact words to describe her as she had used to describe herself just days before.
Style of Leadership
Andrea encourages her team members to go outside of their comfort zones. She considers herself a gardener who sets seeds and lets them grow, and tries not to get in the way.
What Are You Excited About?
Andrea is ready to dedicate her time to writing a book and getting it published. She is also excited about the community of LegacyCode.Rocks.
Current Business Challenge
As Corgibytes continues to grow, Andrea is challenged with embracing the growth, while maintaining her original vision.
Your Support System
Andrea’s business partner Scott, who is also her husband, provides her with amazing support. Scott’s parents provide child care which gives them freedom to run their business. All of the team members are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Shared daily journals have been a transformative practice.
