I consider myself a lucky girl from the South Bronx who had great mentors. Those mentorships helped me strive and thrive. I try, have tried, to pay that forward. I like passing on knowledge and coaching people to their full potential both at work and personal life.
I also look to other people to see what are best practices and how I myself can continue to improve.
This is all great and good. Here is where I will take slight turn. There are also those people who are helpful despite their worst intentions. What do I mean? Sometimes what people teach us is who we don’t want to be. And, that lesson is just as valuable and should be heeded.
