Becky Daniels, ED Discover Schenectady
I really loved the question posed to our table about motivation and the change that happens when you’re able to reframe your motivation from “working harder” to “adding value.” Coming from a previous job in a corporate environment, I struggled to feel like my contributions made a tangible impact on my company or community. Transitioning to a role with an organization where I can see every day that what I do is making a difference to my community has, without a doubt, made me want to work harder, rather than working more for the sake of working more. My new role as the Executive Director of Discover Schenectady aligns my professional skills and abilities, with my personal passion for growing and giving back to the community that I love and call home. Aligning my work with my values and passion has been a game-changer for me and I cannot imagine doing anything else.

My mission in life is to motivate students, family, and friends to make their life their own; you can do anything, so take the reins, and do what you love to do. There is only one person in this world that will take the very best care of us and that is us, so look in that mirror and have a conversation with that person. When the speaker addressed Mission, Passion, and Purpose… My mission is to have passion and purpose in everything that I do, every single day…and to practice what I preach!
