No one is perfect and you will make mistakes, but the biggest mistake is not trying.


My road in life has been direct.
College graduate, where I focused a lot on the books but not so much on the connections within business school.
Feared that I would not do well in an accounting firm and took the first no as a note to go corporate, while I should have utilized NABA more to find an accounting firm and get the experience.
Again, gained an MBA but did not network as well as I should have to gain those relationships
Stayed too long at a company that was not progressing me at the rate I deserved, but I was able to leverage a lot out of the NABA relationship I created
Moved to a new city, after being fearful for a long time, and entered a company that really challenged me but showed me the heights I could reach
Took a step on faith and transitioned to an entertainment company to learn more about a subject that interested me but allowed me to still leverage my background in finance
Keep following my journey
