Doreen's Role Models
One of Doreen's biggest role models is Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx. Each day, Sara's father would ask her, “So, what did you fail at today?” and he would be disappointed if there weren't any failures that day. Sara learnt that failure is not an outcome, but rather a lack of trying to be more than you were the day before by stretching yourself far enough out of your comfort zone.
Les Brown is Doreen's role model as a motivational speaker. In school, he was deemed “educably mentally retarded”. However, he didn’t give up, but instead began reading books on public speaking and studying the habits of established speakers. In 1989, he received the National Speakers Association's highest award -the Council of Peers Award of Excellence- becoming the first African American to receive such an honor.
