Never did I thought I would become the few people I follow reading more than one book at a time with the actual intent to finish.
Well, here I am – I am that person. Because I need it. Not because I’m forced to and I guess I don’t have to either but I want to in order to drive my creativity and knowledge and help build my overall strategy.
You don’t have to have a business to be a strategist. It should be a given – it should be something you do no matter what. At least that is the notion I have always followed since I was in high school.
I think everyone has different types of fears that pushes them. Mine was fear of not being able to be smart enough to make it into college or better yet not be able to find a job after college.

While typing this one of the mentors mention you have to be able to pivot. I agree I mean I have to do that at work as a product manager but in life you must even though sometimes its scary or requires additional funding. But when you believe in something it doesn’t matter.
Fashion dictionary is added because I’m hoping to be more correct with some of my recent descriptions, ha. This book was bought by mom during college and never knew it would become handy NOW.
