For anyone who feels less-than about your work, worth, body, or the life you're building, find here an incredible hope: you don't have to have it all together to "qualify" for your life's calling.
Just ask Caitlin Crosby - the former Hollywood talent who didn't finish college, never got an MBA, and wasn't supposed to become a CEO, yet that's exactly what she did (even if being a new mother means she forgets to brush her teeth sometimes before heading to the office). Caitlin's passion for people led her to launch The Giving Keys, a give-back jewelry brand with the mission of helping its employees transition out of homelessness. Each of their one million plus keys sold represents a person who wore it, then shared it with someone else, in a unique pay-it-forward model.
Yet just as her jewelry repurposes throw-away keys to bear bold messages of hope, faith, and courage,
Caitlin has fought hard to believe her own imperfections can lead to her greatest purpose.
In You Are the Key, Caitlin reveals imperfections aplenty: like the time she accidentally voice-texted a huge fight with her husband to her entire leadership team, or the terrifying day a disgruntled employee brought a gun to their office, or the time this #girlboss landed herself in the ER. For the first time, Caitlin also opens up about her own secret "flaw" that rocked her sense of self-worth for the better part of two decades, and her private battle to believe our scars are not sources of shame but proof of courage and prompts toward purpose.
Through Caitlin's all-too-real stories, sparkling with warmth and humor, you'll find your own free pass to embrace your flaws and reframe your imperfections not as limitations but signposts toward your greatest purpose.
