Miss Holly’s Baker’s Dozen:

Messages To Inspire and Surprise

It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.
It’s not grandiose if you can back it up.
Don’t make excuses for your ambition, and don’t ask for permission.
The only limitations that exist are between your ears.
It is your job, not anyone else’s to make you into the very best you can be.
I am only interested in the solution, not the drama.
Work on your business, not in it.
Have the courage to be imperfect.
Tell the truth when you know it.
Look to the best, then do it better.
Hard work pays off… there are no shortcuts.
If food is love, then I am making it.
Be of service.

Yselande Pierre, Assistant Director/SPC-BBC Advisor, Florida International University

Hollis Wilder was a phenomenal speaker. She was an excellent role model and inspiration to our students.
