Move the Chains
As an independent consultant in the public policy space, Giovanna Rossi believed getting an office and hiring staff was the natural next step in the process of building her business.
“But one day when I sat down at my desk and looked out at the beautiful view of the mountains, I realized I’d made a terrible mistake,” she recalls. “Leasing an office was not at all what I wanted to do.”
Finding herself stuck in the Red Zone, Giovanna gathered her team of trusted advisers around her. “We huddled up,” she laughs. “I realized I needed to follow my intuition and take action on what mattered most to me.”
Trusting her own voice, taking risks, and believing everything would work out okay took Giovanna into the End Zone for the game winning touchdown she’d been looking to get!
