Some days I’m a better mother and wife, some days I’m a better firm leader. Each day I make sure that I’ve done at least one good thing for each aspect of my life that allows me to believe that some semblance of bal - ance is possible in this world where those lines are now more blurred than ever. What outside activities do you enjoy during you free time? Golfing, reading and race car driving. Yes, race car driv - ing -- for fun. Totally outside the box and the most exhila - rating thing I’ve ever done. I even got to be on the cover of a national magazine in a race car. Granted it was CPA Magazine, but national nonetheless! Doing the photo shoot that day with a professional photographer from NYC was way more intimidat - ing than getting in my car that day and driving around the track at 180 MPH! What inspiring word of advice would you give to a young woman about to go into the field of commercial real estate or your allied field? I live by ten tenants: (1) It’s all about relationships, (2) be true to yourself, (3) don’t try to be someone you’re not, (4) always do the right thing, even when it’s the hardest thing, (5) be trustworthy, (6) be a problem solver, (7) don’t be afraid of failure, (8) bask in the accolades and toot your own horn, (9) build up others around you, and (10) be known for something unique.
