There's something on my mind lately, and it has been central to what I am leaning into these days. Life is an emotional roller coaster, but in these current times, it's all magnified. Having been the financial leader for multiple billion-dollar drug portfolios, I want to share my perspective on how we can come out of these times even better than before.

What is your relationship with fear? Some people are paralyzed by fear, while others are motivated by it. Lately, I have been thinking about how fear can be fuel if you have the right relationship to it.
