WID-TVC Holds June Monthly Membership
The WID-TVC June Monthly Membership was held June 14 at Rocket City Tavern! We heard from Mrs. Constance A. Hambrick, Office of Small Business Programs HQ, US Army Contracting Command.
As a passionate advocator for small businesses, Mrs. Hambrick spoke to our members on her lessons learned throughout her career thus far, in the areas of friendship, communication, obstacles, and perseverance. Mrs. Hambrick also discussed the importance of growing from successes and failures and how she measures the two.
“I measure failure by when one stops trying,” she said. “I measure success one accomplishment at a time.”
To wrap it up, Mrs. Hambrick encouraged attendees to have courage in both personal and work life as a kick-starter to success, quoting Oprah Winfrey: “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
Thank you for joining us, Mrs. Hambrick!
