She has a genuine interest in the companies she works with and invests in, and she says that interest and determination can make up for other possible shortcomings.

More importantly, she says that people can always tell whether you are confident and enthusiastic about a project. If you can carry yourself in the right way, you'll be able to do more than you ever thought possible.
