ABC Young Professionals: On ‘Trak’ for Success

What is your favorite or inspirational quote?
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
– Ferris Bueller (John Hughes)

This quote helps to keep me grounded and to remember to stop and appreciate even the small things through all the noise and stress of a fast-moving life!

Being a part of the YP Committee has helped introduce me to new networking opportunities, hone my professional skills, influence our industry with a group of peers, and more. I think the greatest opportunity for me has been to push myself outside my comfort zone with networking. I encourage other YPs and co-workers of mine to get out there and meet other people in the industry, because it helps you grow your people skills while building an industry network that has real benefits.
