About this Episode

This week on the See It To Be Podcast we talk the amazing founder of Tola Marketing + Creative and Milkin’ Cookie, Cassandra Shuck.

After facing her own experiences with a turbulent household, Cassandra has made it her mission to make sure to provide support for women who have similar trauma.

Cassandra is the role model that we all need to remind us of the amazing things that are possible through women working together.

Shuck on the realization she had from leveraging her trauma:
_11:11 " it was, I can either, you know, close off, shutdown, never date, never get married again, never have a baby and kind of shut off this dream. Or I can dive in to say, okay, well no one was there for me, but I'm going to make damn sure someone's going to be there for every other woman who has this experience.

Shuck on listening to your inner voice, especially when it is shouting at you:
_12:11 "One of the biggest things that I kind of practice and then preach is if it's screaming to you and if it's talking to you, don't ignore it because it gets louder and louder and louder until you actually have to do something with it."

Shuck on what we all learn from traumatic experiences:

_15:46 "..that's what trauma does when it takes stuff away from you and when it strips you so far down, you start to realize what's important and what's not. "
