What does it take to be part of Phoenix Business Journal’s “40 under 40” of 🤔?
“The best candidate quantitatively demonstrates:
- Business Success (financial results, career growth)
- Community involvement (volunteer work, advocacy)
- Leadership (public profile, reputation)
- Influence (impact on region, public policy, quality of life)”
Seems like a tall order, but when you’re fueled by passion (like the alumnus and nominees I’ve had the pleasure to meet)- you’re already doing all of the above as part of your life’s work. And while the awards are nice, they are not the motive. The real #goals is to achieve that level of mentality & freedom before you’re 40! (Also okay if you’re 40+ 😁)
Olenka Cullinan is an exemplary candidate. While I know you don’t do what you do for the accolades (as you are currently in India expanding your Rising Tycoons programs on a global level) you are inspiration as a woman, boss, and a mother. 🔥💕✨ Congratulations on your well-deserved nomination!
