Tiffany DotsonWith Liberty Mutual’s Dr. Tiffany Dotson

“Focus on improving instead of proving.”

Q: You talk about people finding their “true north” — or confidence in their ability to successfully lead and inspire change in themselves and others. How did you go about finding your true north?”

Given my multiple interests, I have tried many different things.

Many of us picture retirement as a time of ease. By then, the house will be paid off and the nest should be empty. Though there won’t be a paycheck to cover our bills, maintaining our lifestyle will cost less.
