I love deep conversations with my guests and this episode with Kristin is yet another one. Kristin is privileged enough to be to raised in a country that is open to equality and has female leaders as role models. She is now paying it forward by spreading her wisdom around the world to inspire people to be open to change and equality.
I must say she is one determined woman with or without her crutches! :)
Be something more
Some great takeaways from Kristin :
You can do things differently
Give value to things that matters
Know what holds you back
Empowerment is not only about women - it's about humanity
There's still too many women that are blinded in the situation they're in
Be aware - you have a voice, use it
Be open to collaborate with others
