“Business is not personal. What kind of leader you need to be is how you process it and move forward. Keep growing, try to be brave in your beliefs, push yourself to strive and push yourself to view change as a new chapter. You can only be good at something you are passionate about. Go write a great story!”

 

“We do not all start out with the same advantages in life, nor do we have identical skills, interests, and abilities. But I firmly believe that by advocating yourself, identifying champions who can help you pursue your dreams, and helping others to follow theirs, you, too, can build a happy and fulfilling career.”

 

“Unlearn the things that hold you back. Identify the things you stand for.”

 

For aspiring entrepreneurs: “1000% just do it. It’s not about the freedom to do what you want, when you want; it’s also the thrill of taking a leap and seeing what happens.”

 

“You can find your balance, and you can advance. You have the choice; you are in control of what gets done or what gets dropped. Just make sure to devote some energy towards believing in yourself and believing that you can do it. Whether that “it” is achieving balance, or advancing in your professional goals, if you believe it, you can achieve it.”

 

“I might not be the smartest person in the room, but I’m the most interested person in the room. I’m the most engaged, and it’s amazing how far that goes.”

 

“What has helped me, and what has helped organizations transform, is being seen as a true, listening leader, one who isn’t quick to draw conclusions.”

 

“What I’ve learned is people remember your successes more than they remember your failures.”

  • Susan Lyne, President, BBG Ventures

 

“Recalibrate along the way. You will be surprised at how just fine tuning a few things can contribute to your success.”

 

“I built my career on a portfolio of skills. Not ambition, because I’ve landed here by no planned path, it was more about just taking on more and more new things that expanded my horizons of knowledge.”
