More About How to Use What You've Got to Get What You Want by Marilyn Tam
 
 
 
Overview
According to common wisdom, Marilyn Tam didn't have the advantages needed to get ahead in the world. English was her second language, she suffered abuse and lack of support from her family, had no connections, and began a career in the male-dominated business world. But Marilyn discovered that her "disadvantages" provided her with the strength to creat the career and life she always dreamed of. Not only has Marilyn achieved phenomenal success in business, holding executive roles at companies such as Aveda, Reebok, and Nike, but she has also pursued her dream of helping others by founding a non-profit organization. How did she beat the odds? In How To Use What You've Got To Get What You Want, Marilyn Tam shares the philosophy that has taken her to the pinnacle of personal and professional success. In her work and life, Marilyn lives by four simple principles: tell the truth all the time (it's easier), make others your partner in your success (work from common ground), make big mistakes (big mistakes are the byproduct of making big strides), and die by your own sword (better to fight and die by your own ideas and conviction's than anyone else's). Founded in integrity, courage, flexibility, and collaboration, these principles contradict much of the standard thinking about success. Marilyn isn't your standard success story - but she just might be the inspiration you need to become the hero in your own life.
