Peace and Possibilities

Nov 16, 2022

My guest this week had a successful, albeit stressful, marketing and advertising career. For years she did whatever it took to meet the needs of her clients. And she was really good at it. But she was overspent.


Imagine that!


Eventually she began to ponder about doing more for a different impact.


Victoria knew she loved leading people and getting the best out of them.  So she sought more insight. Then she became a coach, helping even more people.


After discussing success and options, we both agreed education can make all the difference.

That's why she started Trace of Hope, an organization that helps students pay for college.


She's learned many things over the years, in corporate America and while having her own business.


Some advice from Victoria:

  • Always try to look at your situation differently
  • Assure people when listening: I heard you, I understand you
  • Be open to different experiences
  • Seek out a mentor


When you're overspent, seeking a new way to make an impact and use your gifts to help others, is definitely possible.  Just ask Victoria!
