WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?
“I have been fortunate enough to be raised by a village of parents, educators, mentors and successful professionals. The resounding theme that has best shaped both my personal and professional life is that, ‘People may not remember what you said or what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.’ It is a solid reminder that no matter how successful you become or how many accolades you receive, you can always take the time to encourage, counsel and support the people or causes who seek your help.”
