Hookum Horns going to university of Texas in psychology (good story)
Great global career that started in Texas and is currently residing in Texas
- The first time we met
- Trying to get out of her psychology class and having it be her major
- Acing the subject after never showing up to class
- EDS first job and asking for another role within the company, brazen?
- Being brash and learning to soften the edges just a bit
- Working in compensation and the impact it has and doesn't have
- Thinking that she will lead the company one day and laying the groundwork to do so
- The change in mindset for seeking a Noble Cause with the current work force
- Not letting being a woman impact her career
- Being told international wasn't in the cards, then getting sponsored to go to Korea then London
- Don't tell Jeri she can't do something, it will only fuel her
- Great role in London
- Moving back to the US San Diego after marriage
- Making great family decisions that worked out well from a business perspective
- Try something when you're young, remember it doesn't have to last forever
- Moving over to consulting to help clients with their journey
- Learning how to sell
- Your perception is your reality
