“Only One Thing Stands Between You and Success. It Isn’t Experience. It Isn’t Talent.”
Everything I have accomplished is because of one thing; my ability to connect with people. My banking career and the success of the Black Chamber wasn’t because of my experience or talent. Because I had neither! It came from my ability to connect with people. I have built strong partnerships and collaborations, built bridges for inclusion, and expanded my influence due to my strong communication skills.
