In this episode, Katie and I discuss:
“There's something on this primal DNA deep level that makes us protectors. Maybe you haven't been able to connect with that part of yourself yet, but that's inside every single woman I've ever met. So (don’t allow) your narrative about who you are and what you're capable of prevent you from seeking out more education and skills and training and let yourself tap into that.” — Katie Toliao Hurd
