What it takes to become successful

For today’s #leadershiptuesday – we want to highlight a throwback from our 2018 #WomenWhoMeanBusiness event. Our featured speaker is #MoniqueGreenwood – founder of Akwaaba Bed & Breakfast Inns (NY, NJ, DC) and former #editorinchief of Essence magazine.

She encourages people to define success on their own terms; to line up their #goals; to discover what their passions and goals are. Finally, Monique reminds us that it is ok if things don’t work out how we planned. It’s all a part of the journey of “turning lemons into lemon meringue pie.” These are hard times – but give yourself a pat on the back because you are doing amazing!

Thank you, Monique! We all needed to hear this.
