Dynamic Woman Effie Santo's Top Ten Wish I Knew Then!

16 Aug 2019 8:10 AM | Working Women (Administrator)

Join us for our 10th anniversary celebration at the Decade of Dynamic Women dinner where we will be celebrating honoree, Effie Santos, among other dynamic women in Tampa Bay! Learn more here!

We asked each honoree if they would share 10 things they know now they wish they knew 10 years ago. Here’s Effie's list:

1. Know your personal values and stay true to them always…it is who you are.

2. You cannot change ANYONE…you can be the role model, lead by example and encourage.

3. You truly become the people who you surround yourself with.

4. Create written house rules with consequences for your children starting when they are toddlers. They will learn, become independent and feel accomplished. And you will stay a sane Mom.

5. Spend money on experiences and not “things”. At the end of the day all we have is our memories.

6. There truly is a Cinderella story…you just have to find him and not compromise your values and standards in the process.

7. Give yourself “permission”…to rest for a day, to start over in life, dive into your next chapter, etc.

8. Listen to your mom, she does have more experience than you and loves you unconditionally.

9. What you think about you bring about.

10. The only thing we cannot create more of is time…take time to be still. You will be surprised how much clarity you will gain.
