Web Exclusive: Amy on Children and Success
Amy and Shauna discuss children and their affect on success.
Shauna Lake: What do your kids take away from your success?
Amy Rees Anderson: It's been very interesting to watch. My kids are very different personality wise. My daughter is my mini-me, but she runs circles around me. A lot of people think I move really fast but she moves 10 times faster than me. I look at her and I stand in awe. She's brilliant, she's beautiful, she's just so confident in the right way, Not the arrogance type but just really self-confident in who she is and I think she gained a sense of I can do anything I put my mind to. She is not afraid to go after things and she is not intimidated. She can be in a circle of people who are incredibly accomplished and to her they're just human beings. They're not people to feel uncomfortable around. I think that's going to help her in her life tremendously.
My son gained the compassionate side of seeing me have to care for employees. I mean when you're a leader you really end up spending a lot of time as a mother counselor, I don't know the right words, but you're really trying to help people lead, and he really gained a sense of watching that side of my job and I think that's really served him well in his life. He's just very in tune with people's needs and able to pick up on that and try and help build people up.
