I am outnumbered in my house by independent and strong women (my two red-headed daughters, my oddly always-right wife, and our mini golden doodle Clover). I’ve also been fortunate enough to have been mentored by a barrier-breaking female in my early career 25-plus years ago. Looking back, this has truly been my life’s greatest professional blessing and the source of a lesson that has served me well throughout my career. Never be afraid to shut up and listen. And this post is one of those times.
