Point the Thumb, Not the Finger, The Power of Responsibility

“Point the Thumb and Not the Finger”

What does all this mean?

Pointing the thumb and not the finger means to accept responsibility for your actions.  It's so easy to blame someone else or other circumstances for your failures or lack of results.  Take ownership of your own future; write your own book of business!  Become that entrepreneur and build your…

Hi Nancy, I know this is way late but maybe I can contribute more now because we finally did put up a Facebook page. Let's connect.

Nancy, thank you for your comments last night; it truly made a mark on me. Funny how we come from all walks of life and we have no idea what each of us have had to battle. You, my friend, are a warrior. I don't know if I could continue on like you have; you are the definition of perserverance. :)

So, it was the accident of a teenage job that brought you to the industry at 17?

Great to meet you too, Nancy!  Always my pleasure to reach out and make a new friend and thank you as well.  My mom finds it funny that I do what I do, since I was the student who did not enjoy writing.  LOL  My father is just proud that I am carrying on the family tradition and remaining in the automotive industry.  So, how did you come to be doing what you do?  I see that you have an extensive automotive background, but how did you get started?
