Learning to write
When I was in college, one of my professors told me that those who succeed know how to write well. Why: Those who can write well successfully get their ideas across in a clear, accessible manner… without wasting everyone’s time. I took that to heart, and I learned how to write well by focusing less on self-expression and more on the person I wanted to reach — in other words, the reader (or the audience).
The subtle shift has been a tremendous asset to me in my career. For those who think “writing” doesn’t matter… well, I’ll take anyone down on that point!

If something didn’t work, I would take what I’d learned and apply it to the next task. Failure wasn’t an option; moving forward always was.
Jill Janssen, Director, PwC
I think it’s a combination of personality traits that have helped me to succeed. Not only hard work – but patience, sacrifice and choosing my battles have all helped me to reach the point in my career to which I aspired, in a company I admired.
Kelly Manthey, VP Strategy & Innovation, Solstice Mobile
My natural tendency to want to know how something works and demystify a topic by learning more has propelled my career, instilled confidence, and put me on a path I could have never imagined. My general curiosity has made me challenge myself and look at life through the lens of “hmmm that’s interesting, I wonder if I could do that. It can’t be that hard.” This attitude has brought out in me the marathoner, the snowboarder, the knitter, the mother, the wife, the business leader, the Harvard student, the writer, the teacher, and the cook. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
