When asked “Who’s your biggest mentor?”, Success & Wellness Coach Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy contributed to MyCorporation Blog sharing thoughts on her mother:
“My mother, Janie Sykes-Kennedy, has been my biggest mentor. A Columbia University-trained journalist, she ran Sykes Kennedy Associates, Inc., a marketing consulting company that did business around the world. In the late 1980s, she was invited by the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Housing & Urban Development as one of fourteen women to start trade talks with China and walked away with a contract to distribute the journal, Building in China, worldwide. She showed me by example what was possible as a female entrepreneur. You can make your dreams come true by believing in yourself, living your values, pursuing your vision, working smart, and seeking joy along the way.”
PARTNERSHIP. Are you a loner or a connector? What type of genuine partnerships have you formed in your life? I was a tom-boy athlete growing up. I ran track, swam and did gymnastics competitively and was successful at winning many medals. Although I was technically on a “team”, I realize now that in all of those sports the final result was really determined by my individual performance. Except for in a relay race, I wasn’t really dependent on the other members like with sports such as football or basketball.
