What happens when you find yourself on a career path that you know you don't want to be on, but you don't know what's next either?  Instead of fretting, Jason took a risk on a job that offered him an opportunity to do work he never dreamed of doing. That decision changed the trajectory of his life and has led him to a career and business that allows him to help people live better lives by helping them to save their homes. https://www.linkedin.com/in/jasonzavala56/

What makes a professional woman who is a wife, mother, and career social worker walk away from her aspect of her life, except her children, to start over? What makes such a woman a highly sought after therapist for men?  Dr. Alonda Alloway did just and is just that!  She gives us a glimpse into the work she put in to take her life and career off the path that everybody else thought she should be on in order to be true to who she is and always has been.  Do you have the courage to be who you are and accept the challenges and risks that come along with you?  Is the work toward peace of mind worth disrupting the ease of monotony? https://therapyforblackmen.org/therapists/alonda-alloway/ https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapists/alonda-alloway-sterling-va/355633 https://www.linkedin.com/in/alonda-alloway-phd-lcsw-4696632/

Michelle and Kenya give us a taste of the labor and emotional work it takes to reorient their lives so that they can spend more and more of their time on what matters to them.

Do you have what it takes to lead in the face of hostility, rejection, and limited resources? Do you know when to keep fighting and when to throw in the towel? One woman's conviction to do the work she's called to do, no matter what. https://montgomeryselmadistrict.org/presiding-elder
