, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Because I'm a consummate entrepreneur and I'm always seeking opportunities I often look at other people's talents and skills and try to encourage them. My coworker was excellent at her job and overqualified and fact. I told her this and said that she was wasting her time and years and a dead end position. It hurt her feelings instead of encouraging her. I learned that I needed to temper my words and consider my audience and that not all people can take it straight no chaser. While I meant well I was ineffective.

Renita, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
The first batch of my product, parade first aid was created in my kitchen! It was exciting because I was creating a product that was not out on the market. It was difficult because while I took chemistry in college I still had to read up and get all of the proper utensils Etc and that proved to be hilarious and exhausted. However, I prevailed and braids first aid is now a patented hair serum!
