10 | On dreaming big: permission to set your career goals ridiculously high

We need more female leaders in Corporate America, which means that as women, dreaming big for ourselves is not just fun, but actually critical to closing the corporate gender gap.


In this episode, Jess discusses what it means to be ambitious and why it’s so important for ambitious women to not sell themselves short in terms of what they want for their careers.  She discusses:


  • Why it can feel scary and even uncomfortable to want something big for yourself
  • Why we sometimes don’t allow ourselves to dream as big as we should
  • Why dreaming big can be so powerful
  • The relationship between female empowerment and career goals, and
  • How you can start going after massive goals TODAY, no matter who you are or what you do
