2013 | OUR Year

a2013

On a weekly basis last year, I’ve tried to listen to Oprah’s commencement address at Spelman College in order to keep her wonderful gems of advise top of mind in my daily life. She reminds the class that the ancestors and angels had already paved the way before them, saying, “Your crown has been paid for, put it on your head and wear it.” Definitely one of the highlights of this address.

She stressed the following pieces of advice that she felt would be valuable to the female class:

  • Know who you are and what you want.

  • Find a way to serve. Greatness is determined by service.

  • Always do the right thing. Be excellent, let excellence be your brand.

  • Surround yourself with people who are accustomed to success. People who want the best for you.

If we can all attempt to live by these points, I think we’ll all be better off. Here’s to a great 2013 folks!
