Share a meaningful piece of advice you’ve received.

Don’t compare yourself to others–it’s a trap; people get caught up in looking at others and comparing if they are doing better personally and professionally, making more money, getting promoted, having a big house, keeping up with the Jones, etc. Compete against yourself. Are you better than you were yesterday? Are you better than you were last year?  If not, reflect on what you need to do to get better, and then do it.

What do you love most about MMA East region’s workplace culture?

The people. Our jobs are not easy, but every person is committed to not only their clients but to each other working as a team.

What meaningful advice would you give to others at MMA?

Work hard and get better every day. There is a great quote from Mark Cuban that resonates with me: “It’s not about money or connections–it’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone.” If you put in the work, if you keep expanding your knowledge/areas of expertise, and rounding out your skillsets, more doors will open and your opportunities will be limitless.
