There are many things that make a professional woman successful. And, as different as we all are, equal are the ways each of us find our way to success. There is not a work day that goes by where I am not amazed by another professional woman. Each unique in her own way but all forging forward to bring success to herself and her organization.
For me, there are a few things I have relied on all these years to help drive my success. But, one of my most important traits is my attitude and sense of humor. I am driven by an intense need to laugh and be happy! I love what I do and when I am doing something related to my career, I make sure I enjoy it and make the most of the moment. I have complete control over the attitude I bring every day and I do everything I can to be sure it is upbeat, positive and full of energy. As a leader, it is my job to ensure my team, clients and prospects all know the attitude and personality they can expect when they see me and I try to deliver on that every day! Are you checking your attitude each day?
