This week, Diana chats with Annalyn Cruz about trusting your inner voice and taking the steps to craft a career that truly makes you fulfilled and happy. They talk about how taking the time to recover from burnout motivated Annalyn to take the leap and leave a corporate job to start her business in leadership coaching. They also discuss the importance of soul-searching and trusting yourself to not fail, as well as the challenges of working through familial and cultural expectations.
