I had a great session last month friend and client Teddra Burgess. Teddra is the Public Sector Strategic Alliances Manager and Sales Chief Operation Officer for Hewlett Packard software. Teddra was chosen by Computer Reseller News as a 2014 Women of the Channel. Below is an excerpt from her CRN interview.
What advice would you give to young women aspiring to succeed in the workplace?
Teddra advises young women to take their careers seriously: ‘Decide early on if you want a job or a career; there is a difference. Always strive to be the best. Become a subject matter expert and be invaluable to your leadership and peers.’ Teddra is a supporter of the Ban Bossy message that is sweeping the nation. She encourages girls and women not to be afraid of leading, standing out, or leaning in.
