Melanie Teed-Murch exudes passion. She’s passionate about family, work, and life in general, and you can’t help but get swept up in her enthusiasm.
During her interview, we focused on her leadership role as President and CEO of Toys”R”Us Canada, and on her path to success. But you don’t have to be a leader to glean a wealth of inspiration from what she had to share. Of course, success is something we all gauge on a personal level, but being happy in your work, regardless of what that work is, certainly classifies.
My favorite take-away from Melanie?
“If you don’t love what you do when you get up in the morning, you’re doing the wrong thing, because life is just too short.”
Not that I didn’t realize this before, but we can always use a reminder. And remember, sometimes it’s trial and error to discover just what that thing is. Always be patient and never be afraid to explore. And most importantly . . .
“Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle.”
Wow, do I love that! That should be on a T-shirt (or a Teed-shirt, as the case may be). 🙂
And thank God she didn’t let anyone dull hers. She’s a literal shining example of what a life well-lived looks like.
Girlfriends, let’s all mirror this woman’s glow, and display those inner diamonds!
