In February I was lucky enough to attend the SME (Society of Mining, Metallurgical, Exploration) in Phoenix AZ. During the event there was a Women in Mining Breakfast. I listened to Mary Korpi who recently retired from Newmont Mining and had had a very diverse career at Newmont. Her piece of advise "Take a chance on yourself" when someone asks you to take a chance on a project, new career path, go for it, they wouldn't ask if they didn't believe you could do it.
That is good advice for all of us, it may be scary, we may be unsure of ourselves, however we are being asked for a reason!! Believe it.
