Words of Wisdom from One Time Hoosier, Amelia Earhart!
NOBLESVILLE, IN., August 17, 2020 – Hamilton Country Workforce Innovation’s Words of Wisdom, this week, comes from a person that some may not remember as living in Indiana…Amelia Earhart! Amelia was a visiting faculty member at Purdue University starting in 1935 as an advisor to aeronautical engineering. She was also a career counselor to women students 3 years after becoming the first female pilot to make a solo transatlantic flight!
“The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life and the procedure. The process is its own reward.”
Amelia’s Words of Wisdom correlate so strongly with HCWIN’s Talent Pathways program and other amazing services…Start with your first decision to act by checking out all the options and programs HCWIN has for our amazing residents and businesses!
