Simone Knego has done some pretty remarkable things, but she says it's the small things that have impacted her life the most. She climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for the Livestrong Foundation, and she's travelled the world on philanthropic missions with her neurosurgeon husband. She says every choice she's made is a part of her story, but it’s the small things that have impacted her life the most.
The familiar Jewish phrase she learned in her youth, Tikkun Olam—repair the world—has been the driving force of everything she does.

Are you a woman who has been passed up for promotions? Are you sick of watching others get the advancement opportunities you deserve? Are you tired of working for bad bosses? Then you'll want to hear what Rochelle Marie has to say in this episode. We talked about courage, confidence, how bosses should be engaging their staff if they are working virtually, the concept of "embody it until you become it," and more.
Rochelle Marie has worked her way from entry level roles to leadership positions twice (once after a 12 year career gap to raise her children) without pretending to be someone she's not or sacrificing her family.
