Here are her Key Takeaways:

  1. Ask yourself what you really want. Not what society says you should have. That may have been ok in our 20s or 30s but now it’s ok if you actually want something different.
  2. Have a MacGyver mentality – that there is always a solution. You may have to take a couple of detours, but focus on what your end goal is. 
  3. Sort out fact from fiction and if this is what you want to do, be focused on it. You will always have your detractors, but similarly you’ll have people who support you on your side.
  4. Values evolve and change. When it comes to purpose – ask yourself – does this make me feel good? Does it make me happy?
  5. I always said I never want any “could have, would have, should have’s”. Always try something – and if it doesn’t work – then it doesn’t work  but at least you’ve tried!
  6. This is the power trifecta! Black, female, over 50! You’re getting me at my best!
  7. You are not starting over, you are starting from experience! There is so much we have right now that we can tap into now that we didn’t have in our 20s or 30s.
  8. You don’t need to be empowered when you already have the power!
  9. Make life extraordinary and measure success on your own terms.
