Playing Small Moment

While Nancy was in her mid twenties and working at a ski resort, she had an injury after surgery from pushing herself too much too soon. As she lay crumpled on the floor, she was told she would never move up as a woman.

The Wake Up Call

Nancy was headed on a fitness trip and broke her ankle, but didn’t want to accept it. She desperately wanted to go on the trip, and hoped she could make it through. After another fall, she ended up realizing she wasn’t taking care of herself.

Style of Leadership

“Enthusiastic” sums up Nancy’s leadership style in one word. Nancy wants her people to know that she supports them enthusiastically and that they have a piece of her business that they can each grow.

What Are You Excited About?

Nancy is thrilled about her new audio book that will be on Audible soon. She was surprised how much she loved recording it and plans to do that with other books as well.

Leadership Practice

Nancy participates in a national network of agencies that meets often. Networking with others inspires her and ensures that she is keeping up with the latest business trends.

What Would You Change?

Nancy wishes she had taken care of her own needs: taking time off when she needed it and cutting herself some slack.

Inspirational Quote

“Our Deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; our deepest fear it is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant gorgeous talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. We are born to make the manifest, the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some us of it’s in all of us. As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Maryann Williamson
