More about Kathleen:
What are your biggest pet peeves at work?
The accidental firm wide distribution list email address being added to an email chain with the subsequent REPLY ALL “please remove me from this list”
What’s the best price of professional advice you have been given?
Never eat lunch alone. In our business, it’s building relationships that sets you apart from the rest and gets you ahead. Ensuring that you are sharing a meal with a new potential client, business partner, center of influence or friend as often as possible means that you are making connections and sharing your value proposition (and not eating at your desk).
What would you do if you were invisible for a day?
Haunt my coworkers in the morning and be an Uber driver during the day. “No One is arriving now.”
What are three things on your bucket list?
1. Attend (or even better, speak at) a TED Talk.
2. Go to the live Battlebots filming. (nerdy pleasure)
3. Successfully donate blood. (scared of needles, tried once, but had to stop…)
What do you need the most help with?
Practicing the financial wisdom I preach.
What’s one or two things that people would say you do really well?
Task management and relationship building.
