We have a new Podcast on Leadership, where guests make tough choices from within. Our July guest is Dr. Julie Ponesse, please enjoy!

What happens when you take a stance for something you believe in and it costs you, your career, reputation and takes away some part of you, you worked hard for, your whole life?

This is not something you take lightly…it comes from deep within and it is not a decision one makes without thought, care and grace.

This happened to Dr. Julie Ponesse, she left her career in Academia by making a heartfelt choice, her story is below in our recent discussion.
