“This industry is a tough one to change, but it is worth the effort. Stay focused on the end goal: positive impact on students and families. Be persistent, focused, and humble. Keep your nose to the grindstone, but take a moment to look up every once in a while to see the progress you’ve made. And, collaborate. There is so much work to do as an industry, and so many smart, committed people trying to do their part. If we partnered more often, we could really amplify our impact in ways we may not yet even realize.”
