Are you “feeling the fear” in your next career step? For Catherine McFarlane, it’s a sign that you’re on the right track. 

Catherine sits down with Grace Ormsby to talk about how she took on different roles in the real estate industry and also explored some forks down her career road before ultimately coming to the left field of the space — the mortgage brokering industry. 

She also shares how she continues to draw on her previous work experiences in her leadership role and emphasises the importance of equipping your team with the tools they need to succeed before unpacking why female business leaders should not mould their leadership strategies based on those of their male counterparts but rather, focus on making their own feminine mark.  

In this episode, you will hear: 

  • How challenges can be turned into career growth opportunities
  • What goes into building future leaders
  • Why it’s important to forge your own brand of leadership
