Playing Small Moment
An investor told Lane that he didn’t want to hear her strategy on how to bring in money and how to be ethical in his company. She stared at him and sat down. She realized that she had become a statistic. Lane was shocked, as she had heard about this but never actually experienced it. She lost her confidence in that moment.
The Wake Up Call
Lane’s wake up call ended up in her taking an exit from the lingerie company. Her eyes were sunken in, she was working 16 hour days and not being present in her life. Lane had to work back into things that kept her grounded and back into her life.
