"Nine to five is for supervisors— VPs stay until the problem is solved. Learn to speak, write and present better than a Hall of Fame Coach. Take risks. If you believe in yourself, bet on yourself. Failure happens to everyone. Try again. Don’t burn bridges: type that scathingly clever email blasting your idiot boss…then delete it. Be very, very grateful for the people who help you succeed, and give back when you make it.”
Hope it fans your flame like it fanned mine.
