100 Seconds of Advice from Meg Whitman

“Do something you love, with people you like and respect”

Meg makes a wonderful point. Most professionals clock in more hours in the office than they do at home. That is why it is extremely important to not only love what you do, but love the people you do it with. It is easy to get caught up in fight for more money and power but not so easy to stay true to yourself.

Never Compromise Your Integrity

Meg Whitman is one of the most successful businesswomen in the world. That is why I was pleased to find out that she lives her life by a code of honor. She explains that if you are ever in a situation that compromises your integrity, remove yourself from that situation immediately.

“In the end, the only thing you really have is your reputation”

Reputation is a persons identity. Your name and who you are as a person lays the foreground of any business decision or professional move. Meg advises to live your life with ethics and a moral code. This means to know who you are as an individual and always remain loyal to yourself and your values. Integrity is the most valuable asset to a professionals portfolio.

“Be fast, be brave, be courageous”
