Ali Tiegs took the 20 year plan to complete her education and delayed her career gratification, never losing sight of goals in life but aware of what it would ultimately take to obtain them. Priorities play a very significant role in achieving success and even in her later career as a teacher, principal, and executive director, she looked at the end result first, then worked her way backward in order to achieve the desired outcome. While in her 20s, she purposely opted to postpone completing college and instead focus on her marriage and motherhood. After raising her three gifted and talented children, she set out at age 42 to finish that college degree and seriously develop her career. Now, some 24 years into very fulfilling work in education and administration, she enjoys strong connection and fulfillment in her work, making the journey all the sweeter. Ali’s story reminds us that each of us can enjoy several careers and it’s never too late to pursue our dreams.
