111. Embrace the Moxie Within–No Apologies for Nurturing Big Dreams
Lori Patrice Robinson is the founder of Corporate Moxie, the premier destination for women who don’t apologize for having big dreams. Born out of a desire to see women encourage other career women, Corporate Moxie provides the tools for climbing the career ladder of success while embracing the “moxie” within.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Lori has a clear memory from age three. “I saw a picture in a magazine and said, “I want to be a business woman.” After college, she started at the bottom as a Human Resources assistant. Bumps, bruises, promotions and a master’s degree later, she founded Corporate Moxie on her own.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
The sudden passing of her mother when Lori was 35 brought the realization, “You’ve been pushing and pushing. You have to put some living in your life!” She earned a master’s in organizational leadership because she’d seen it was a missing element in the corporate world. “After that, everything changed.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
For any change in life, you have to: 1) believe in yourself, and 2) understand that it’s going to take work. Be honest with yourself. If you’re in a career you are no longer happy with, and if you see something that you would love to do, you need to make that step.
