Jennifer Bell, Chief Marketing Officer for Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises (LEYE) in Chicago, IL, shares her career timeline and words of advice for up-and-coming professionals.
“The biggest lesson I learned was to find the courage to speak up. I put myself out there and was vulnerable, and every time I took a risk, people acted positively. Don't rest on your laurels. Instead, always strive for something outside of your comfort zone. Keep pushing yourself to be better.„
