WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

She went to Harvard business school, her father was the founder of Trek Bicycles, and she spent years working her way up the corporate ladder. But it was entering the race for governor of Wisconsin that helped her escape the cage of her comfort zone. And it was through losing that race that she finally found her confidence again. Mary Burke is one hell of a woman and an incredible fountain of wisdom, my love. So, hold onto your heart, this is going to get good.

We talk about:

  • How our comfort zone cages us in

  • The 3 biggest lessons she learned from losing the run for governor

  • Why Mary started “toning it down” and playing small after years of success

  • The Catalyst for launching her organizing, Building Brave
