Clip from Episode 8: Jacquelyn Nicholson of Percolate:
I learned this from my my executive coach Jim Riviello and Riv said to me you know when we first started working together almost three years ago. He asked me how I define success, and I thought well gosh you know I want to make a lot of money. I want a title I want this I want that I want a nice car I want to be able to drink nice wine and he sort of laughed at me. He goes Yeah yeah. OK let’s let’s break that down a little bit. So he got me thinking very differently and this is what I tell everybody today is you know success for me is being the person that I want to be. And I can be that person whether it’s in the face of adversity if I’ve been cut off on the freeway if I’ve just been I’ve just lost a big deal. I can still be successful because my success is tied to the person I am and when I show up as the person that I aspire to be that’s when I’m successful and for me that’s defined as the person that my husband would marry all over again the person that my boss Matt would hire again and the person that my kids are really proud to introduce to their friends. So when I do that that’s when I’m successful and so that’s why I’m most proud of those things and what what really drives me.
