How we can manifest success within our personal relationships, health, finances, and ultimately focus more on self-care?
Often when it comes to speaking about success we tend to focus on only one aspect of it: career. However, achieving success in your personal life takes just as much energy and investment of your resources as achieving professional success.
When discussing this topic we will focus on three quadrants:
To help us shed light on this topic, we’re speaking with three women who can provide unique perspectives on each of these areas.
Candice S. Cook..... Managing Member of Ca-Co Global Inc. & The Cook Law Group
Jane Barratt..... Founder & CEO of Goldbean
Michelle Mitchum..... Founder The OrangeMoon
Candice Cook graduated from Vanderbilt Law School and spent time taking classes at University of Oxford in England. Since then, she’s won multiple awards and recognition for her work in the law field. Not to mention, she’s an avid traveler. Candice carved a new path in the law field. Something you need consistent fervor and determination to do. Not to mention a clear vision. Her passion and plan to bring new, innovative practices to the field of law is ambitious. So I understand why she is the right person for what is more like a mission than a job.
