The purpose of the career profile series is that I think we can learn so much from likeminded, successful, driven women. The internet has revolutionized mentorship – I don’t think that you have to actually know someone to learn from their career path and experiences. I learn so much from reading people’s stories, following them on social media, and reading their blogs, articles, and books. I hope that you’ve found the career profiles to be as helpful as I have!
Without further ado, here are my favorite quotes from this month’s profiles:
“I try to stand up for millennials as much as I can because I really like our generation. I think we are hardworking. I think we are optimistic. I like that we don’t accept doing things the same way because ‘that’s how it’s always been done’. I guess my advice would be to just keep going, keep making things, keep chasing things make you happy.” —Amanda Greeley
“Savor the small accomplishments: When you have a big dream, it can be easy to beat yourself up for not ‘being where you want to be.’ Be proud of yourself for everything you accomplish here and now. Your dream will only continue to get bigger as you grow more and more.” —Samantha Cooper
“By comparing yourself to anyone else you’re wasting time – time that you could spend investing in yourself, your career, and developing the skills you need to realize the hopes and dreams for your career.” —Lauren Pruner
“Work, work, work. Go above and beyond. Always be a coworker or teammate people can count on, but maintain a back bone.” —Elizabeth Didora
