Doug Simon, President & CEO of D S Simon Productions, spoke with Elise Mitchell, President & CEO of Mitchell Communications Group, at the Counselors Academy 2012 Spring Conference about starting her own PR firm.
“You want to be on the journey intentionally, which means that whatever you are experiencing in your business you want to fully embrace it. But most importantly don’t be so focused on the destination that you miss the experience of the ride along the way.”
“I believe to be successful in whatever you do in business you have to be first and foremost passionate about it.”
“If we could learn to take that energy that a lot of times we focus on, the potential hazards and all the things that could go wrong and instead focus on where we want to end up we will be much more successful in life.”
“Be able to think about where potential opportunity lies and don’t be afraid to press into it. Which means take a bit of calculated risk; Invest in resources, staff up, look for opportunities to really drive your business forward and sometimes that takes a little bit of courage to do it.”
