Cindy grew up on the “wrong” side of the tracks—a neighborhood infamous for poverty and crime. But as a child, her low-rent apartment complex was simply home. It was the look on her father’s face when she told him her friends from other areas weren’t allowed to come over to play. She awoke to the reality of her family’s situation. But from that moment on, there was a spark within her—something burning inside to break out of the mediocrity she was born into and step into greatness. Now Cindy Watson is an author, a respected attorney, practicing law and specializing in social justice for decades, and a leading voice in the breakdown of gender bias and barriers. She’s used her background to fuel her passion to build bridges between men and women and empower leaders to thrive in soft skills and feminine energy. Needing a shift or a spark in your life? Listen to the full story of Cindy’s tenacity to never quit when faced with adversity.
