Apr 6, 2020

Dr. Cortney Baker is a mom, CEO, author, podcaster, and an inspiration to professional women. She had some rough patches early in life, but by taking ownership of her journey, she skipped out on playing the victim, and instead she wrote her own script. Today she’s chairman and CEO of KidsCare, a multimillion dollar healthcare agency in multiple US states, and her influence reaches even farther.

In today’s episode, we learn how caring for her needy sister impacted her career choices, about Cortney’s decision to become an entrepreneur, and about her recently released book regarding gender issues in the workplace, Unlimited: Conquering the Myth of the Glass Ceiling. We also discuss purpose, confidence, the four things that hold women back from advancing in the workplace, time management...and more.
