I just wanted to thank you for allowing me to get inspired at your conference. It was so heartfelt, motivating and impact-full for me. For a while now I have been wanting to find a new path in my career. Although I do like working for Cox and love the money, its not who I am and will never reflect the type of leader and women I will ever be. Although I'm an assistant manager now, sales is just not a job where I can truly help people and express myself in many ways.  I went to school for fashion merchandise and love to help people and I feel I'm stuck selling cable. So I came home that night, sat my husband down and told him I'm going to find a new job and I need his support. He was shocked but he's on board. I'm not sure where my journey will begin but I'm thankful I am taking the first step. Thank you so much Gina for helping me feel empowered and motivated to finally break from my unhappy work-life. You are awesome!!!
