What is your personal life motto: “You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar” It helps me remember to keep a good attitude because being cranky never makes anything better.
What is the most challenging professional obstacle you have had? After I graduated I accepted an offer with a financial services company to work in the marketing department. I and worked really hard to get this offer and I thought that I would be happy working there, but I soon realized that I really wanted to to be in retail. It was really hard for me to walk away from a place that I was doing so well at to enter into an unfamiliar industry. On top of that, it took me a really long time to find the right role and company so it got really hard maintaining a good attitude at my then current job.
