A woman in a hurry is not the image you want to portray. A woman on a
mission yes, but not a woman on the run.
Some good advice I learned from my mother, a successful entrepreneur, was “slow down to get things done.” Sometimes she’d say, “if you keep working so hard you’ll never get ahead.”
In business (and in Washington D.C.), too often a courageous-think-and-act-outside-of-the-box individual is pejoratively labeled a cowboy. As if being a cowboy is a bad thing! Whoa! That’s exactly what I want on my team.
Why? Because I know cowboys — real cowboys. They are about inspiration not regulation. They don’t worry about rules but rather principles, values, and character.
