I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Crain's Cleveland Business Women of Note luncheon today. All twelve women are tremendously worthy of this honor. A couple of the women shared some really fabulous thoughts that I'd like to post here.
Claire Zangerle of VNA said, 'Be flexible because you never know what opportunities or obstacles you'll encounter.'
Rebecca Sweet of Viva dance! Studio said, "I truly believed that there was nothing a woman couldn't do." and "sometime it's okay to be a follower."
Jacklyn Chisholm of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum said that open, honest, direct communication was her personal mission statement.
Nan Cohen of Cedar Brook Financial Partners said that at her company they work together to create an exceptional experience for their clients.
Kathleen Ferry of Telefast Industries shared this - the greatest thing about people knowing you don't know everything is that it frees you up to ask for help.
And, Rita Maimbourg of Tucker Ellis and West said that there is no such thing as the mommy track. you are the master of your own future.
See what I mean? Really power words from some spectacular women. I knew by the end of the presentation why I had been compelled to attend this luncheon.
