    How to Embrace Not Fitting In

    in Business

    Join us today on Women Leading the Way Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of Women Who Lead, interviews Heather Furby, Co-Founder & CEO of Cause and Success.


    One of the underlying thoughts of most of the people I work with is "I just don't fit in!" it becomes a silent mantra that ends up controlling their lives. Most of the women didn't fit in as kids because they were into science and math...or something techy...or they liked dirt bikes and camping! Then, they follow their hearts and enter into technology...only to not fit in b/c they are women. So, they end up feeling victimized b/c they are "the only woman in the room" - they are tired, worn down and ready to toss their career for something else...ANYTHING else...just to feel what it's like to "fit in."


    Heather is an entrepreneur and author. Heather is dedicated to helping women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in technology learn to navigate the special needs of todays business. I bridge the gap between HOW to succeed and WHO is succeeding - meaning skill set, mind set and strategy.
