Thank you

Aug 31 2012 13:14
A HUGE thank you from Fin24 to all the phenomenal  women who made time in their busy schedules to write about the challenges they face on a daily basis in their work and family life, and who still manage to give time to others and realise their own dreams.

They’ve written about empowering themselves and others, inspired their sisters to be the force for change, shared their recipes for success and given their opinion on pressing issues facing the South African economy.

They find life a fine balancing act and feel it’s about daring to take risks, celebrating small victories, being passionate about  what you’re doing, making sacrifices to get to the top, mutual support and never forgetting where you come from.

Their stories resonate what we all experience at some stage of our lives, and they’ve shared valuable lessons we can employ to make our lives a bit more manageable.

Lorraine Wagner pretty much summed it up with the list of lessons she’s learnt:

• Your life will not have one path; it will have many. On each one you will learn something new. Learn that one thing.
• All your dreams don’t come true. Some do, some were never meant to be dreamt in the first place. So get over it.
• Read. Read. And read some more. It fills your mind with a world that is waiting to be enjoyed. Read and enjoy.
• Be grateful. Be thankful for every opportunity you are given. Life owes you nothing. Period.
• Don’t job hop for a few rand. The old adage “a rolling stone gathers no moss” is still true, despite what the experts say.
• People are people. They have bad days and good ones just like you. You are not the centre of the universe. Know that.
• Respect your co-workers. You need each one of them - including the tea girl and office cleaner.

Thank you for making Fin24’s Women’s Month campaign a resounding success.

From all of us at Fin24
