“It’s not enough to love what you do unless you love who you’re being while you do it.” Cassandra Goodman talks about finding ourselves on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.

“We can get lost by finding ourselves in a job that we suddenly realise is becoming soul destroying. You know, we can get lost in a relationship that doesn’t respect and honor who we are. We can get lost in so many different ways. It’s the waking up to that reality that we have lost.” Getting lost in finding ourselves by Cassandra Goodman on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.

“In order to be enough, I needed to be a high achieving, low maintenance machine.” Cassandra Goodman talks about her family’s expectations on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
