It’s a wonderful springtime here in Tennessee, but we’re going to take a little trip to the Hudson Valley, New York to meet a Cognitive Scientist, Fulbright scholar, author of Find Your Carrot, entrepreneur, and beauty queen. There are so many things that we can list here, but she’s not five people rolled into one, she is just one person who chooses to inspire people in different ways. Welcome to the show Mrs. Dutchess County, New York, Jacquelyn H. Berry PhD.
Jacquelyn helps people to set and attain their goals in so many ways. Today, we’re going to have a delightful experience, hearing her wisdom and helpful tips to overcome some of life’s challenges and struggles. Jacquelyn is also into birds, raptors, and birds of prey in particular. She shared some distinct features of them that she admires and wants to also acquire.
Grab a pen and paper and be ready to pick up everything that you can get from this podcast. Be ready not just to listen, but to learn. It’s going to be a meaningful conversation ahead with Jacquelyn H. Berry, PhD.

“I think on the personal level, people should take it upon themselves to organize their lives. So, they are not put into situations where they have to make a tough decision when they're tired, and it's late in the day, and they've just had the hassles of normal life adding upon them.”
“I firmly believe that everyone has their own personal currency that they have to offer the world, and should use that to reach their goals and to share that to enrich other people's lives.”
“So, you're looking at all of the things I have listed on my resume, it all says the same thing James, which is to inspire people, right? I'm not five people rolled into one. I'm just one person inspiring people in different ways.”
“I've always liked or thought about, if I just had the vision, just to see how everything would come together, I can help so many other people, including myself and my students to be exactly where they need to be because I could see the entire field in amazing detail as they do.”
You're not perfect, and neither are the things you want to do. But that doesn't mean you can't work within that, to just bring forth what it is you want to give to the world. So, I think everyone has something that really only they have, and that really only they can do better than anybody.
