Jane Piper shares 5 lessons from 5 years in business

Jane Piper has very kindly shared a story with us about a move from a safe corporate role to independent consulting!

It covers the subjects of:

  1. Patience and Perseverance
  2. Get good advice
  3. Relationships REALLY matter
  4. Be bold
  5. Have Fun

A few points that resonated with me personally:

“Not everyone will like or agree with what you say. Don’t be sorry – that’s the point.”

“In an era of social media, being seen does matter.”

“As a thought leader your ideas are new and controversial, otherwise it’s not thought leadership, by definition.”
