Business: Risks & Chances

“In business, there’s a difference between a risk and a chance.
A well-calculated risk may very well end up
as an investment in your business.
A careless chance can cause it to crumble.
And when an opportunity presents itself,
never assume it will be your last.”

Thinking YOU CAN

“I didn’t see myself any different from my white counterparts in school.
I just didn’t! I thought I could do what they did.
And what I didn’t do well,
I thought people were going to give me the opportunity to do well,
because maybe they saw my talent,
so they would give me a chance.
I had no idea that they would see me completely different.”
~ Viola Davis,
Actress & Producer
