It takes grit and tenacity to make it to the top. And it takes humbleness and perseverance to stay there. Our next guest has all of those qualities and more.

Belinda Agnew is a managing partner at both Foccus Group, a unique recruitment agency, and Enamus, a full-service marketing and branding boutique.
