"Leadership means different things to different people. However, for me…Leadership isn’t a position, it’s a mindset. Leadership is about the people you serve – the culture they keep and embrace, it’s about empathy for your customers, clients, employees and the communities where you do business, being confident enough to take risks and responsible enough to think of those who your decisions and risks may affect"
"Do what you love, and go for it! If you have a business and you’re afraid that you will be judged, just dive right in. I promise you, it will be completely worth it, even if you slip. LPSCon has changed my life, and if I let my fear get to me about what others would think of me, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Everyone is super supportive of this event and my toy obsession! I promise you have more allies than you think. Don’t ever ever let fear get in the way of your dreams"
"My favorite thing about my job is the people I work with and help. They have shown me over and over again that this mission is bigger than myself. I am 100% happy with everything I’ve been able to accomplish and happy that I’ve been able to be a source of inspiration to others. This keeps me going when things get rough"
"Have a voice and be assertive. Ask for what you want, usually no one knows that you want something until you are vocal about it. Also, people will respect you if your speak up and voice your opinion versus you conceding with everything. Those are a few pieces of advice I would give someone who wants to pursue a career in the financial services industry"
"Supporting women is everything to me. I love working with, partnering with and collaborating with other female owned businesses. When we support each other we are stronger. Everyday I’m inspired by the strong rural women in Northern Ghana who process all of the raw ingredients that R&R uses in product formulations. These beautiful women work from sunrise to sunset processing the raw ingredients by hand and stop at nothing to ensure that they can provide their children with an education and a good start in life which is something I can relate to"
