There are very few people in the world I would write limericks for. Candy Cole is one of them. A classmate of mine in the Rollins MBA program, we immediately clicked. Dark sense of humor. Super smart. Handsome with a beard (that may just be me).
She talks about the journey from accountant with a safe job to taking the leap to consultant who is always hustling. Good times are had by all.
