What Advice Would You Give Your Younger Self?

6 min read

Sometimes the best advice is the advice you wish you could give to your younger self. In this online panel, we asked women business leaders what they knew when they were just starting out. Here’s a sample of what they had to say:

  1. It’s all going to be ok. Noreen Bishop, a Chase banking executive, says that once you follow your passions and interests, everything else will fall into place.
  2. Be a Renaissance woman. Never stop learning, suggests Angelle Albright, founder of Chemo Beanies, a maker of headscarves for women undergoing cancer treatment. She says that entrepreneurship requires a host of skills from designing websites, managing, to hiring patent attorneys and you have to be prepared for anything.
  3. Be humble. Jessica Adams, founder of metalsmith firm Living Design Studios, reminds us that learning to listen to those around you will make you smarter and stronger.
