Arlene Dickinson is smart, savvy and easy to listen to. She’s CEO of Venture Communications, ‘one of Canada’s largest marketing firms’.
At a recent talk she gave, she was asked for her top advice. Here it is, plain and simple.
‘Thank god you don’t live in Haiti [or more recently earthquake stricken Chile]. We are blessed to live in this country.’
– ‘opportunities exist to get through tough times, we have freedom and democracy, we have so much’
– ‘we have to look forward, that’s what entrepreneurs do, make it happen, there’s always a market’
– ‘it’s a marathon not a sprint – take care of your diet, sleep and exercise – stay healthy. The average millionaire in the US dies at the age of 60’
Are you sprinting or in it for the marathon? How do yo know?
