Laurie Ruettimann shares What I Learned From Being Rejected By Kellogg

I don’t have many career aspirations.

At the age of 39, I thought I would be a human resources lady and a mom. The fact that I write and speak for a living is very crazy. And it’s even weirder when leaders ask me for strategic advice.

(Yeah, I suffer. Tough to be LFR.)

The good news is that my career thrives despite my lack of ambition. I have been asked to sit on several advisory boards. That is fun. I am finalizing many of those opportunities right now. And I was asked to sit on an official board, too!
