In Marty Petty’s career – which has included publisher roles at the prestigious St. Petersburg Times (now Tampa Bay Times) and Hartford Courant newspapers – she’s seen the value of taking risks.
In a talk to the Vinoy Business Alliance, she offered two takeaways on risk-taking:
1. “Embrace risk and pivotal or daunting career assignments, even if you think your boss is crazy. She or he may see something in you that you don’t see in yourself.”
2. “As long as our work is a human endeavor, mistakes will be made. Our job is to not make the same one twice.”
