Dream of success, is what she opened her speech as the keynote for the annual Richmond Woman’s Empowerment Expo held at the International Raceway Complex. She addressed the crowd saying, “focus only on your talents. Know yourself and develop a thick skin where you can be rejected but NEVER feel rejected. The effort, which you apply all your energy and passions, is to get to a place where you love what you do. And when you love what you do, you never work a day. Create a vision and stick to it. Make a set of life questions that you can ask yourself before starting each and every new opportunity that allows you to access the steps taken to your goals. Always identify and prioritize your thoughts. “Find the good and praise it. Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift…” Angela Bassett.
