Tara Wiese inspired by Cheryl Hilling
Dear INTJ Cheryl,
I couldn’t wait to write this letter to you. From our formal mentoring match to a growing friendship ever since, I’m grateful for your influence on my life. You gave me a healthy, self-check mirror and access to new ideas that helped me grow into my 40-year-old self. With a family, volunteer commitments, and a full-time career, a few years ago I wasn’t sure where an MBA program was going to fit in my life, but it did! With your encouragement and support, I realized I could do anything I was driven to do. Myers-Briggs says we are almost completely opposite personalities. I think our yin and yang is what makes our relationship so unique and special. While you may be an introvert, your growth mindset and humble and strong leadership style are rare in the business world. You are brilliantly smart, and when you speak, your humility makes people want to listen to you. Humble confidence is a rarity. Being able to witness you being an awesome mother, wife, scientist, leader, and friend all at the same time has been a real honor. Thank you for believing in me and sharing the things you see in me with me. I’m a better mom, wife, marketer, leader, and friend because of your model influence in my life.
