At 24, Helena Paschal earned a Master’s Degree and had a “good job” but she was not happy. “So, I did what women aren’t supposed to do, I quit!”

She shares these 3 insights:
1. Hard work is not the key to success. My first job was as an Executive Assistant. I would get to work an hour early. I would join the Execs in the break room for coffee and attend networking events with them. A year later, I earned a promotion into Operations Management with a 10K increase. Other busy assistants rarely left their desks. The hardest working people were stressed out and making the least. It was the more visible people that were landing the promotions.

2. You define your own success. My family never said the word success. I heard that you go to school, get a job, get married, and have a family. The goal was to have a family. I learned in books that success isn’t about money but communication. So, I earned a Masters in Communication.

3. Your value is found in what you honor. “What is important to you?’ That’s the question that led to a turning point in my life. My cookie cutter response was God, Family, and Career. But the reality is progress in all 3 of those areas is what’s most important to me.

Helena Paschal has become a leader in professional development.  With a Masters Degree in Communication and 15 years of training experience, she has trained thousands of professionals throughout the world.
