What is the most valuable business lesson you have learned?
“Believing in the art of serendipity is one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned in my career. Some people define serendipity as luck, but my experiences have taught me that it’s actually something you proactively cultivate by putting yourself out there, taking calculated risks, inserting yourself into the right situations and being open to receiving what comes your way. Most successful people I know didn’t design a grand plan when they started out – they simply joined a series of growing organizations and threw themselves into their roles at each one with an abundance of enthusiasm.”
