“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”Mahatma Gandhi
I am an advocate for #lifelonglearning. Regardless of your earned credentials, there is never a point that learning ends. Learning for personal and professional growth helps make an individual more well-rounded, marketable, and adaptable. This microblog series is dedicated to everyone who is on a professional journey – looking for new ways to evolve, learn, and gain new experience so they may add value to what they are already doing, acquire a new skill, or transition into a territory not yet explored. I am excited to share my ideas and insights about professional pathways – a small way to help individuals at all levels of professional development reach not only their potential – but stretch themselves to that next level.
