In this episode, getting authentic with our reading and writing, plus permission.

Permission to take risks from our leaders.

Giving ourselves permission to branch out beyond our comfort zones.

And not waiting for permission, just doing what's best for students.

But that's not all - We've also got the Lightning Round where we're pushing the edges of mindset, branching out, resistance and the collective.

And to bring us home, Michelle Snyder and Victoria Curtis have advice to their younger selves.
