About the Guest

“Once you decide on your occupation…you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job…that’s the secret of success…and is the key to being regarded honorably.”

Bec Godsey really enjoys this work perspective from Jiro Ono. When I take on any challenge, I strive for quality not only in my work product, but also in my work ethic. My communication background is a foundation for my means of effectively connecting with others – whether through analyzing, instructing or developing communication strategies to tell stories that matter.
