Whenever someone says to me, “I didn’t grow up with technology” or “I can’t possibly start a new career now” I tell them to Google Shawna Kaminski. Shawna and I have been friends since 2012 — when there were just 4 women (we were 2 of them) and a whole bunch of dudes in our Mastermind group.
Shawna and I get real about personal relationships, how to handle friends who think you’re a workaholic and how choosing your passion can never steer you in the wrong direction.
