Leaving New Jersey to attend school for a Degree in Speech Language Pathology, Alisha knew three things: she was never getting married, never having kids and never driving a minivan. Looking back now, a married mother and grandmother of two, Alisha’s biggest learning from that time is never say never.
Alisha goes on to discuss hurdles in her life and career, both self-imposed and external. The best advice Alisha can offer is that if you have to wait, make use of the waiting. Have patience, gain knowledge and learn to apply it. Be ready when the opportunity does come.
Networking and building community is about elevating others and adding value according to our fierce guest.
In this episode Alisha offers advice to her younger self (shouldn’t we all!?). Take the time to recognize the milestones as you reach them. Be present. Don’t compromise your integrity to advance, and pursue everything you do with a heartfelt passionate intensity.
