Unlock the confidence to lead today

Cortney McDermott had it all—a rising career at a Fortune 500 company, a loving husband, the Jimmy Choos. To an outsider, she was living the dream. But inside, her mind was racing from meetings to e-mails to childcare, and her thoughts were filled with self-doubt. Forced to rethink what it means to be successful, Cortney realized that it’s not about achieving goal after goal. It’s about learning to sustain yourself. To live a life of purpose, you must first look within.
