Gathering Inspiration from Those That Care for Us

Gathering Inspiration from Those That Care for Us

Recently, a popular book called "Tribe of Mentors" by Tim Ferriss made its way around the office. Ferriss' concept was to capture small insights from admirable professionals that we look to for guidance and who have mastered some form of success. This inspired us to reach out to those who we could all gain a little insight from: Nurses. We asked the Tribe of Mentors questions to some of our nurses and the answers truly help us 'see' the ones that care for us and our loved ones. Getting to know each other on a deeper level helps everyone involved, especially when it comes to care, what motivates a person, and what we can achieve together. So, without further ado, meet Teasia.

1. What is one of the best or most worthwhile investments you've ever made? (Could be an investment of money, time, energy, etc.)

Teasia: One of the best investments I've made was spending an adequate amount of time with my family before I had moved away to another state.

2. If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it - metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions - what would it say?

Teasia: "You are beautiful just the way you are. Stop comparing yourself."

"If you truly believe in it, then go get it."

"Enjoy the little things while you can."

"Make a difference in the world that will positively impact someone."

3. In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?

Teasia: One habit that improved my life in the last five years is always researching new information I acquire. It's really beneficial to me to be aware and have some knowledge about what's going on.

4. What advice would you give to a smart, driven college student about to enter the "real world"? What advice should they ignore?

Teasia: You've got to have confidence, self love and perseverance. Ignore comparability and negative people.

Thank you Teasia for your positivity and kindness that you bring to the world and into our communities every day. How lucky are we to have caregivers like you?
