We are all creatures of habit, but what happens when we allow ourselves to get outside of our comfort zone?
Cassandra Knight talks about how moving from one coast to another allowed her to take the baby steps that helped her unlock unexpected opportunities. Having an open mindset has helped Cassandra connect with her ancestors, build a professional network, explore new opportunities, and find love. Guided by her friend and mentor she has successfully navigated the work-life balance in her career in the complex litigation world.
