Get RADICAL Women’s Conference
31 Mar 2014

There’s something powerful about being surrounded by positive women who are passionate about their purpose. After attending the inspiring 6th Annual Get RADICAL Women’s Conference a week ago, I wanted to share some of the most valuable nuggets of wisdom given to us from Doreen Rainey, Teneshia Jackson Warner, Laila Ali, Lori Greiner, Jean Chatzky and Thomas Blackwell. Enjoy!

  1. The Dream is good, but you have to put the dream in action.
  2. Once you align the passion with the profession and/or the career with the calling, then you will find true purpose.
  3. Courage to pursue your dreams comes from a place where you feel like you deserve it [success].
  4. I'm not cocky, I just own my space.
  5. Information is NOT power. APPLIED information is power.
  6. Don't ever expect a breakthrough if you're not willing to break down.
  7. Your confidence has to come from within.
