Inspiring Women with Betty Collins
The Journey Or The Destination
The journey or the destination. What's your choice? All our lives we're thinking about the next BIG thing. We're thinking about the next destination. Reaching your destination.

Youth and inexperience Lack of confidence Easy is easier No guidance Fear is paralyzing My "nevers" included: Never - going to use my accounting degree Never - going to be a CPA Never - going to be the employer, content with being an employee Never - going to merge My "never" became "Maybe, OK, Probably" and finally "Yes" due to influencers and facing my challenges.
