As the end of the summer nears, we are approaching that time of year when everyone “gets serious” again. Whether you are headed to college, grad school or returning from summer vacations, we are here to help you re-focus. At the top of the year, we interviewed Alicia Quarles about how she lives in the grey. Because Alicia shared so many insights with us about her journey to career fulfillment, wee thought now would be the perfect time to revisit our conversation. Towards the beginning of her career, Alicia took a risk by walking away from a path sure to bring her “success.” She took a leap and tried something new because she wanted to follow her passion in a more authentic way. Please watch Alicia tell her story in her own words- from the energetic, passionate way she speaks about her career, you’ll quickly be able to tell that the risk she took paid off. It’s truly inspiring!
Alicia’s Tips to #LiveGrey:
1. Say yes to everything. 2. Treat people around you well. 3. Make a list. Cross things off. [Actions trump intentions] 4. Don’t worry about things that don’t matter. 5. Believe in yourself and take a risk. “Go for it, what do you have to lose? We’ve all heard ‘no’ in our lives.” 6. Be humble but respect your enthusiasm.”Find what you do, love it and be good to people- it’s karma.”
