Kasey Perry is executive director of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce and a colleague who was recently featured in the Clarion Ledger. Asked about the best career advice she received, she had some wise words to share, thanks to her parents. “Be willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Be proud of who you are and hold your own.” This seems to be working for her, in the past year the Madison County Chamber of Commerce there are 125 new members and a $70,000 increase in their fundraising efforts. That’s during these challenging economic times.
So here my challenge to you, how can you take the best career advice you have received and put it to good use?
