I was recently asked if my mother, Mary Chacko Russell, had given me any business advice. Although she was not in “business” in the traditional sense of the word, she had her MSW and worked as a medical and school social worker. My mother may be the wisest woman I know. Growing up, she shared many pearls of wisdom with each of us four children. One of her favorite quotes is this: “No knowledge is ever wasted.” I have leaned on that time and time again as I recreated myself from being a high school teacher, to working in retail, to having an award winning television career for 28-years, to now being an entrepreneur as an executive communications coach. With each and every chapter, I have always used all of my experiences, all of my knowledge to move forward to the next chapter, and then the next. I believe this quote, this philosophy, has helped me rise up, to find a way to climb over or through every trial and tribulation I have had. It has also helped me find joy in the successful moments too. So, on this mother’s day, I say thank you to my mom for all her wisdom. I am blessed. Happy Mother’s Day to all women who have raised a child, or simply supported a child as a mentor. It’s a day to celebrate all of you. #mothersday #aparttogether #brunnercommunications
