This episode is an exciting one! I have Captain Sandy on from the hit show Below Deck Mediterranean. Sandy is not only one of the most renowned yacht captains in the industry, but also a well known mentor and leader who is an inspiration to other female entrepreneurs looking to level up.

When it comes to self-leadership, Sandy stresses the importance of self-care. Taking care of your physical, mental, and emotional state will help equip you to be a better leader. She also mentions the importance of staying open to growth and learning. Being mindful of others and selflessness also play a big part in being a leader.

Tools, resources, and support for personal growth is huge. No one has all of the answers, so it’s important to seek out ways to keep improving and moving forward. Be aware, open minded, patient, and kind. When you experience moments where you’re not your best self, own up to it and work on improving your actions in the future. Check your motives.
