On a beautiful late summer afternoon, fifteen years ago, two young women graduated from the same university. These two young women are very much alike as students both had very good grades; both had a pleasant personality and were well-mannered. As it is with young university graduates both were filled with ambitious dreams and both looked forward to a bright future.
Not too long ago, these two women returned to the university where they graduated from for their 15th reunion. They were still very much alike both were happily married. Both had four children. And both as it is, had set up their own businesses.
But there was a difference. One of the young women had few client the other was well patronized.
So what made the difference?
Have you ever wondered as I have, what makes the difference in people’s lives? It isn’t a native intelligence or talents or dedication. It isn’t that one person wants success and the other doesn’t.The difference lies in what each person knows and how he or she makes use of that knowledge.
And this article is about Bernice Aikins. A woman who is quick on her feet, proactive, has a pleasant personality, is well-mannered, well-spoken, and applies what she knows and how to make use of that knowledge as a sales executive at Portside.
