Find Your Mojo in Montana: Women Leaders

We have two amazing guests on the show today!

Sue and Kellis took our Find Your Mojo in Montana a while ago, not once but twice! In this episode, they walk us through different aspects of being leaders in life, in their work, and their growth after the experience. They both reflect on how approaching those special horses has impacted their work as leaders, and they also share advice about what they learned and how they apply it on a daily basis. Leadership is a skill that can be learned and trained in many ways.

Join this episode full of laughs and friendship with wonderful guests, and get to know their testimony firsthand!
