“What I wanted was to be allowed to do the thing in the world that I did best – which I believed then and believe now is the greatest privilege there is.” – Debbie Field.
She was told that no one would buy her cookies, but she did it anyway not because she wanted to be successful financially – she wasn’t chasing dollars. She did it because she felt a need to share something of herself with others, to give and be a part of things. And I believe that is why she was successful. She was passionate, gave from her heart, and she connected to people by using her talents. Sharing your gift is a critical part of your success.
