The prevailing message to men when it comes to relationships and career is basically: “First, get your business, your money and your assets.

How You Leave A Legacy Of Leadership

Legacy of Leadership

“…. I was sitting on a porch swing as I recall, legs dangling and drinking my glass of ice cold sweet tea and my Mamaw  (that’s Grandmother for all of you non-southerners) was sitting next to me.

Comparison At Work

Comparison

Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak about the act of comparison to an amazing group of female leaders.

Miles Away from Ordinary

Do you realize that it really is okay to be ordinary? Are you aware, like I am, that we all have limitations? I personally believe people will only be successful once they have come to terms with this unvarnished truth.
