Diana Stirling, Valley First member and owner of LocoLanding Adventure Park in Penticton and The Peach Ice Cream Shop shares her most exciting personal goal and why it's so important to remove doubt from your life. #IWD2018
If you could eliminate a workplace hurdle for all women, what would it be?
To eliminate doubt. I’ve never been mindful of whether I’m the only woman around the boardroom table, or involved in a project, or asked for my opinion. I see people – not men & women. I see our collective strengths, value, expertise, leadership. And I’ve never doubted that someone shouldn’t be there because of their gender. If you’re not conscious of it, it’s not an issue. Doubt kills more dreams than fear. And fear kills growth.
What personal goal excites you the most right now?
Right now, my goal is to make positivity louder. Whether it’s in my home, at the businesses, or within our community. Positivity goes hand in hand with Optimism – which I truly believe is the secret sauce behind all successful entrepreneurs.
