“Never stop learning. Whether it’s reading books, watching TED talks, attending educational seminars, participating in executive development programs, or simply asking questions of others (technical experts, mentors, managers, etc.), a thirst to constantly learn has been beneficial in my career. It’s allowed me to grow and know when to push through challenges to be successful. I first learned this from my parents. Examples of their hard work and a dedication to learning have stuck with me.”
