Interview with Withers Turner Bolin (@withers_turner_bolin)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I chose to enter the investment industry as it had always been my passion and as a woman, I wanted to prove myself in the industry. This industry can be tough on women but I chose to be resilient and showed that I had just as many skills as any other person. My determination is what brought me here.
What tips would you give your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I would tell anyone joining the industry to not be afraid of it. The industry allows you with many opportunities to gain new skills. There are many new skills that you can learn through your experiences. It does not matter if you fail or succeed, it is the experience that counts.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped you get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
There have been many people along the way who have helped me in my journey towards success. My family, friends and colleagues have been the strongest backbone for me. After the birth of my son, it was hard for me to manage my career with motherhood. But with the extra set of helping hands, I was able to achieve a lot.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I try to give career advice and tips to people around me so they can also succeed.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to your life?
“Be stubborn about your goals, but flexible about your methods”
I tell people that its okay to make mistakes as they help you learn a lot. But make sure that you do not stray away from what you set out to achieve
