“The traditional career advice really just helps us to work hard, and wait to be noticed. That means we get on strategic projects, we try to find mentors and the problem is, it's just not created equal for everybody. And that advice has been passed down because it's worked for people. But the problem is, it only works for a certain category of people really, really well, which is not the majority of the population” - Mary Guirovich
“[When it comes to asking for that promotion] you go to them with value, and it changes everything. But you have to know your value. And you have to be willing to own your accomplishments.” - Mary Guirovich
“Most people that put themselves out there for advancement, they are not 100% ready, there are many things they don't know. But you will figure it out as you go. So I just want to encourage you to really dream. Allow yourself to think and dream big, and then take those actions.” - Mary Guirovich
