How we approach at a challenge we face in the moment must include what life will be like when this challenge is over.

Growth, personal and business, stem from self awareness and how we show up. It’s how we talk to ourselves, communicate with others, and our ability to solve our own problems. Success comes from completing our goals – realistic and with clear measurement – so we know we are on track, get to the finish line by completing them, and celebrating and learning from the journey. Jessica Dewell hosts panelists Zala Bricelj and Howard Strauber and their discussion about how do we know when to grow.
