Whoever told you that promotion comes from above is a LIE!!! Okay, I won’t say a lie…because my momma told me this. However, I do believe it is a crock of shit….okay, I won’t call it that. My mom is a sage matriarch. I have to take all of her advice seriously. But that doesn’t mean that I have to abide by it or agree with it. And I definitely don’t agree with her advice on how to get promoted.
