1/ She told me, "I'm going to figure this sh!t out. I don't like feeling dumb."
2/ Some context: 👉 She makes $300,000+ per year (or $144 per hour). 👉 She is a newly promoted executive leader. 👉 She is responsible for $110 million in client revenue.
3/ I responded, "Don't let your ego get you killed. It'll be much worse if you're the executive who didn't get the result because you couldn't figure out how to find the information.
Her response: ❤️🔥
