One of my earliest memories is my mother reading Peter Pan to me. I would snuggle close under the covers and listen to the soothing sound of my mother’s voice as the words danced across the pages painting the perfect picture of Neverland and The lost Boys.
The main character, Peter Pan displays a fascinating ability to believe so fully in whatever he imagines that for him, at least, it appears to become real. …
Two years ago I took a huge risk and left college. I left a world filled with perfect problems that had perfect solutions and embarked on a journey that I hoped would shape me into the person I wanted to be, a master problem solver.

Starting a new job is always stressful and can be overwhelming especially if it's something that you are doing for the first time. Your first week on the new job will probably be the most informative and the perfect time for all your questions to be answered.

An employee of the month. Salesperson of the year. The top marketer in the group. Words we’ve all heard, so much that they’ve become second nature in most industries.

Big picture mentality is the mission or goal being centered around the company’s best interest rather than the individual’s interest.
When a company enforces and fosters a hyper-competitive workspace they unknowingly build high levels…
I am not going to lie and say that God and I have been on great terms lately. In fact, if I am being completely honest there has been radio silence on my end for almost a year now.
I have no excuses or reasons but just the mere fact that I slipped into a mindset of carelessness.
So what changed? My focus did.
Have you ever tried to take a picture and for some reason no matter how hard you try the camera won’t focus on the object on the other side of the lens?

Hey, my name is Sierra Hays and over the course of this month, I will be learning how to build a better customer success platform.
During week four I created my landing page. A landing page is a place where you can display the timeline of your project.
I gathered everything I worked on during weeks one through three and began linking each project together.
My goal was to have a landing page that no matter what link you viewed you would be able to navigate back to the main page.
Landing pages are crucial when you are building a…
My name is Sierra Hays and during December 2020 I tackled a month-long project that challenged me to learn three new operational skills so I could build a better customer success platform for Equifax.
