We all dream of a huge paycheck or a major promotion, but how willing are we to commit to what it takes to get there? Success is more than our knowledge, abilities, and skills — it’s also about ownership. Because ultimately, we determine success for ourselves.
In this episode, we talk to Veta Richardson, an author and business strategist leader. Veta knew her potential and took ownership of her personal and professional success. She also shares her experiences as the 'different one' and how they shaped her into the great mentor and author she is today. Listen as she takes us through her journey to self-actualization and leaves an immediate and lasting impact on people.
Listen to the episode if you want to be inspired by Veta’s journey and learn how to take ownership of your success!
Veta Richardson is the president and CEO of Associate of Corporate Counsel, a not-for-profit corporation dedicated exclusively to serving chief legal and compliance executives. She authored Take Six, a book on habits to own your destiny, overcome challenges, and unlock opportunities based on Veta’s life experiences.
