It's easy to find great leaders in history for lessons to apply today and, since March is Women’s History Month, I will share with you some of my favorite female leaders:
Mother Teresa: Founded the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic congregation of women dedicated to the poor, particularly to the destitute of India, winner of the 1979 Nobel Prize for Peace
Indira Gandhi: The first female prime minister of India
Nancy Burke: The woman who made Preferred Speakers great, my mom. She not only raised six kids, but did it while building a business from the ground up, employing a dedicated staff of professionals, traveling the world with her clients, and living and working with integrity and a good sense of humor.
Whether you aspire to one day be considered among history’s great leaders, or a strong leader in your own right, there’s never been a better time to step up.
Lead by example.
Be the best version of yourself.
And remember to take care of yourself along the way.
