Here are some thoughts about my work: It’s taken me decades to fully develop my self-confidence. I finally learned it’s not about success, it’s about being comfortable with the trying. Now, in my mid-60’s, I jump in to anything and don’t sweat the outcome. The work that pays is what I do in the financial services industry. Early on, I got used to being the only woman in the room. I celebrate the fact that now we are ubiquitous. My other “work” pays me in joy: riding horses, running a non-profit, leading teenagers on high adventure and creating art.
