Did your education prepare you for your career or occupation?
My college Ed. Prepared me for my career.
A little introspection...
To me, being successful means...
Having the time and money to do what you love. To me it is being a stay at home mom to two beautiful children.
My definition of success has changed over time.
In high school I might have said that the end result was success. Maybe a big house, nice car, the right things to impress others. Now it is almost completely about spiritual and emotional contentment.
My greatest accomplishment to date and what I’ve learned from it
Probably my children. They are still young, but nothing I did in my career compares to the pride I feel when I look at them.
My biggest mistake or regret so far and what I’ve learned from it
Having sex and drinking too young in high school. They were related and I got myself in some bad situations. Have learned to stand up for myself and be very open with my children about how to say what they mean.
