10 Things To Remember When Trying To Achieve Any Goal

10 Things To Remember When Trying To Achieve Any Goal

Kristy Wallace, President of Ellevate Network, knows a lot about what it takes to set a goal and complete the steps to make it happen. In 2014, she realized that she was looking for a career that had more meaning and impact, and preferably one that focused on tech or girls.

She was at a crossroads. She had just had her second child and spent most of her career at start ups. She took a short career break, and focused on connecting with people who could help her find the kinds of companies she was looking for. Eventually she met with leaders at Ellevate (formerly 85 Broads) and she landed her current role.

In her recent webinar, Kristy talked about how to set big goals, how to complete the smaller steps in order to get there, and most importantly, how to stay focused when you hit roadblocks.

At the end, she had 10 big take aways.
