Inspirational Women Series: Sally Porteous

March 19, 2017

Today we hear from Sally Porteous, the Director of Red Lanyard.


Biz Gals: What is your greatest achievement? 
Sally: I think this question is really about relativity. So my greatest achievement is coming from a place where I didn't really care about school to achieving a 6.75 GPA as a mature age student. It took me a while to discover the joy of learning. 

Biz Gals: What is the greatest lesson you have learnt? 
Sally: To stick it out just that little bit longer and read Seth Godin's #TheDip.

Biz Gals: What is the best bit of advice you have been given? 
Sally: I am surrounded by so many inspiring people who give such generous advice so choosing just one is tough. I do remember that whenever I told my dad a new idea I was going to do he would ask me if I had done a cash flow forecast. I still haven't taken this advice but I think it's good advice. 

Biz Gals: What inspires you?  
Sally: Other people's success, positive attitudes, overcoming diversity and people who can focus and persevere. 

Biz Gals: What is your biggest hope for women in the future? 
Sally: Equal pay for equal work
