“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – Robert Collier
I’m an Indianapolis business and IT consultant and mother of four.
I’m currently training to move into Business Intelligence. I’m open to career opportunities, networking opportunities, and volunteering opportunities that align with this goal.
Currently Reading (March 2015):
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
― H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

Dale Carnegie’s 10 Rules of Success:
1. Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.
2. Flaming enthusiasm, backed by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.
3. Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic.
4. You never achieve real success unless you like what you are doing.
5. The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way. Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
6. First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.
7. Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves.
8. Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
9. Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
10. If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities; the thing is to get the work done.
