"Don’t box yourself into long-term goals. It’s great to have a vision for the future you want for yourself but you run the danger of being stuck in tunnel vision. Allow yourself to be flexible and open to opportunities or experiences that don’t always look like they’ll take you where you want to go.They might take to someplace even better or to your original goal but through an unplanned route. I’m always open to change and I’ve learned to move with the tide, it’s taken me places I never could have imagined"
"I think as women we need to believe in ourselves that whether there are biases or not, we can be successful either way. We do not need other people's permission to follow our dreams nor do we need their validation .As women, we need to be confident in ourselves. We need know our limits and also see the success stories of other females as a basis of what is possible and or achievable out there in the world"
"Go for it!! It is hard, you have to put in work and don’t expect handouts from anyone. They say it takes 10 years to be an ‘overnight success’. I have been a full time entrepreneur for 18 years and I have been working on my latest companies for 7- 8 years before we started to gain some real traction. Granted, what I am building is extremely difficult, but nothing comes easy in life. Just have fun with it and be coachable and open to learn"
“As an executive woman, a lot of young girls will look up to me and aspire to be like me so it is my duty and responsibility to mentor and empower young girls and work side-by-side with other women, not in rivalry or competition but in solidarity and support”
"Everyone is a work in progress. Achievements don’t add any value to who you are as a person. Your career should not define who you are or your values. Life is a work in progress, sometimes you put in work and you don’t reap the fruit immediately - that’s okay . It’s like cultivating a garden, you have to learn to be patient, resilient and don’t expect the results to come right away"
"Being an executive woman means knowing and recognizing your ability to impact others and let them know that they can make it and be successful! It is all about IMPACT"
"Don’t settle for a job you are not passionate about, take risks early and often in your career. Spend more time with people than on your devices, travel as much as you can. Learn about other cultures and languages; invest in your education, coaching, mentorship programs and develop a network"
