Kathy Sendall's Top 10- What's Yours?
Inspiration & Wisdom
By Women's Executive NetworkMay 9, 2013
Recently at a WXN Breakfast in Calgary, 2007 WXN Top 100 Hall of Fame inductee and Corporate Director Kathleen Sendall was interviewed by WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery as they delved into a variety of questions. We think Kathy’s ‘Top 10’ list makes pretty good sense and is also a great conversation starter. Here are Kathy’s ‘Top 10’:
1. Never give up the search for the perfect mascara.
2. Never lose your sense of humour and ability to laugh, especially at yourself.
3. Listen - learn to keep your mouth shut and control your temper.
