Best Lines of Business Advice: Valentine’s Day Tribute

Despite all my feminist rantings, I’ve had some awesome men and mentors in my life help shape my business/professional choices. So here is a Valentine’s Day tribute to the ones who stand out in my mind most:

Cal: The network is smarter than the expert.”

Dr. Carrier: Don’t fear snakes. A snake is predictable as long as you know s/he is a snake.”Dr. Carrier: Don’t fear opposition. If someone or something comes out swinging against you, it’s because you threaten them.” Sandy: Relationships carry far more weight in business and life then skills or expertise.”Deryle: There is no such thing as job security. The corporation/institution will get rid of you as soon as you don’t provide value. If you’re good, you’re good. If the corporation values you, so will others. Don’t be afraid to go out and do it on your own. Invest in yourself.”

Steve: You will find a million reasons not to do the thing you must do the most. Stop making excuses.”
