‘Leap and the net will appear.’ Vital Voices network women Jessica Hubley, CEO of AnnieCannons, and Leah Lizarondo, co-founder of Food Rescue Hero, sat down with Alyse Nelson to discuss the power of pivoting. In both of their careers, Jessica and Leah each took leaps of faith, changing their trajectories to make an impact in their communities. Despite uncertainty and barriers, they were able to transform fears of failure into positive learning experiences that helped them create new and exciting opportunities for themselves, for those without food and the trafficking survivors they serve, and for the women who follow after them.
Listen in to hear Jessica and Leah reflect on the way that failure taught them how to create successful initiatives in the future.
