In this episode, you will hear about:
- Cynthia's take on leadership being about other people - engaging people to follow your dream and allowing them to grow within your leadership
- Building your legacy where there’s no right or wrong, too small or too big, and where the only two things that matter are whether your legacy gives you drive and strength every day, and whether it creates a positive change in the world
- Finding the power and resilience in your mission. Cynthia believes she was commissioned to do what she does, and that is what drives her to use every day of her life wisely and with an intention to do good
- How self-care is a part of your legacy and why it's not selfish to take time for yourself
- How essential relationships are for your business, especially in times of crisis
- How you can use the crisis to make an essential impact that will last a long time after the crisis
- Revisiting the doors that have been closed in front of you
- And of course, about running towards adversity because it’s not if - it’s when it will happen
