Today's featured guest is Terra Winston, Ringleader of inTerractions and Principal of inTerract Consulting.

Terra has dedicated her life to helping her clients unleash the potential of each employee. She is a leadership consultant and executive coach with 20 years of internal and external business consulting experience. Terra has a flexible style that has driven results in boardrooms and on plant floors, for Fortune 100 companies and small start-ups, alike.

In today's conversation, we discussed the common mistakes that derail good people from reaching their full trailblazer potential and Terra shares some wisdom on what we can begin doing to blaze our trail.

Find your tribe: live in it, enjoy it, grow within it and that will offer up opportunities for you and give you ways to start blazing your trail.

Know what you're good at. The thing that you are absolutely good at and you love to do, that combination is the foundation of all your success.
