Hi Catherine! Thank you for sharing your story! You’re a very inspiring woman and we definately need more of those in the world! You really hit home with me when you said “I know in the first 15-minutes whether I can collaborate with someone or not — some call it intuition or instinct — an essential part of mindfulness.” People don’t realize the impression they make will make or break them and its so hard to come back from it. I believe emotions get us through some tough situations, even in the work place. It’s how one manages them that shines a light on that true person. Thanks for posting!
