My Best #LifeAdvice

Over the years I have had many strong and wonderful leaders influence me along my path. Most of the leaders I have interacted with have given me words of wisdom or pearls of knowledge that have helped me. But there is one piece of #LifeAdvice I received that has resonated with me for close to 25 years. 

My father’s advice made little sense at the time and my 15 year old self didn’t quite understand it’s full meaning. In a very small way his advice has been a reminder for me to pause and think before jumping into a situation and or partnership my entire professional career. 

“If you lay down with dogs, 
you are going to get fleas.”
