Opportunities for young women: “I meet with young people all the time, and my advice is always the same: Work hard, and you will shine. I started out at the bottom—answering phones and copying scripts. My success came from hard work and a willingness to learn every aspect of this business.”
Juggling busy days: “Try to focus on what is most important and put that on the top of your ‘to do’ list. I think technology has made staying connected all the time easier. iPhones and iPads keep us in contact.”
