There are so many instrumental moments in anyone’s career that enable them to get to where they are today; however, the thing I am thankful for is more words of advice that I live by every single moment of every single day. This advice came when I got my first job as a lifeguard from my father, who unfortunately just recently passed away. He told me that no matter what one’s job is or social status, we all put our pants on one leg at a time. It is imperative that you treat every single person you encounter with the utmost respect, no matter how they may treat you – just say thank you.

To ensure you don’t fall off the bandwagon, she recommends flipping that old familiar motto around to “in sight, in mind.” “Keep a water bottle on you at all times in your bag or in your car. Make sure to keep water in your line of vision at home, work or school. Invest in an easy-to-clean reusable water bottle that you can refill at the sink or water cooler. This will save you some cash and reduce waste produced by plastic water bottles,” she explains.
