Ruth’s Favorite Quote:

    “When rotten things happen, you pick yourself up, you dust yourself off and you keep going.”

Knowledge Bombs:

  • You learn so much more by actually doing it than you would ever learn by putting something on a piece of paper.
  • Don’t put your toe in the water. Jump in with both feet and do it.
  • Be your own banker.
  • If you don’t lead your people well, you will be in trouble.
