Leisa: Hello, I’m Leisa Holland-Nelson and welcome to another edition of Women Mean Business where we’re going to take you up close and personal with extraordinary women doing extraordinary things. My guest today is Lidya Osadchey the Chief Execute Office of the Escape Family Resource Center; Lidya, welcome to Women Mean Business.
Lidya: Thank you Leisa.
Leisa: I want you to share with our audience, who’s filled with young business women, not just how you achieved your success but what the best advice you have for them to get to the level that you’ve reached.
Lidya: That’s a tough one really. I think back and forward and I believe that one of the things that I’m excited about is that there is so much more to learn. So I would say that be a learner, never stand still and wanting to stand out not for the sake of being recognized, but because a true call of yourself. So I think finding your passion – and it doesn’t mean that it has to last your lifetime – and committing to it completely no matter what other say, no matter what others do and no matter even how much you are paid. Whenever you take on a job be the best at it, even if it’s filing, even if it’s answering questions. This is how we stand out and this is how I look at my employees no matter what their job is; do they really take it to the next level? Is there pride in what they are doing? Is there work ethic, is there passion, is there a way to always thinking how can I do it better? So you want to achieve satisfaction, try to be an internal agent of change, always.
Leisa: Thank you.
Lidya: And so managing yourself and really radiating that around you I think helps.
Leisa: I think so too, thank you very much.
Lidya: Thank you.
