In this episode, I sit down with attorney, author, and Professor Lourdes to talk about how she pivoted in her career multiple times from being an attorney and working in the financial sector in various roles, to becoming a professor at Boston College.  Lourdes and I discuss the importance of addressing your current state in life and taking the necessary steps to accomplish goals that may once have seemed unattainable.  We discover commonalities in our Dominican upbringing that made it difficult for us to ask for help but reflect on the importance of networking and surrounding ourselves with people that will hold us to our highest potential.
