GET TO KNOW EMILY…
EmilY’s favorite Core Value is GRIT.
I love all the core values, but grit shows the long haul, not a one-and-done ditch effort. Grit means that we aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty and put in the work to achieve greatness. It is hard to sustain any core values without the grit and resilience to uphold them. I feel like at this time in my personal life, grit is the value I am getting better at every day.
EMILY'S MOTTO IS...
(I feel like this changes every time I listen to a good podcast…) “No clarity, no change. No goals, no growth.”
– Brendon Burchard
