Playing Small Moment

• There have been times in Angie’s life when friendships would wane and she didn’t understand why that was happening and she took it personally. As a result she started to shrink and hold herself back so she wouldn’t be misunderstood by those around her. She came to understand that she is just different from most other people, she sees the world differently, and that’s okay.

The Wake Up Call

• When Angie’s daughter was 3 years old a series of events came about that let Angie know that she was spreading herself too thin and this was not allowing her to grow and go deeper to knowing herself. As a result, she hired a mentor who could guide her to focus on herself and where she wanted to grow.

Style of Leadership
