We can do that while still ensuring that we're driving the business forward.” – Shalaya Shipman
“I teach my professionals that we really need to think two years at a time. What can I do? What is my two-year plan? What skill am I getting? What environment do I want to be in? What do I want my next move to look like?” – Kimberly Brown
“It really starts with loving the work that you're doing and having the accountability systems in place to help you be the most efficient with your time.” – Shalaya Shipman
