  1. You will have detractors, don’t pay attention to them. I mean, maybe, if there’s a little bit of truth, go fix it. But in general don’t pay attention. And you’ll find that some of the detractors will actually get very personal, and it’s painful, it’s certainly very painful for women to see that in press. But, don’t pay any attention to it.
  2. You can’t control whether you’re the smartest person in the room but you can certainly control whether you’re the most prepared.
  3. If every year you’re not getting better – you personally, you your company – you’re probably getting worse. Because things don’t tend to stay static.
