5 Golden Nuggets Shared:

  1. Who you are not is more important than who you are. Recognize who you are, what your good at, and how you can bring value to an organization.
  2. The basics of selling any product or service are finding the problem, not always just the solution. While solutions are important, sometimes it’s more important to evaluate the entire problem before finding that solution.
  3. You can’t do everything. Utilize your genius and bring in others who have the skills you need to keep growing. Collaboration is key!
  4. Innovation is the core of any businesses or organizations success. Make sure you are at the forefront of that innovation and implement core principles to guide you through the process.  
  5. Every failure comes with a spreadsheet or document that looks amazing. Failures are learning lessons and part of your growth process. Embrace the failure!
