Did You Know: The Limitless Madonna

Madonna Louise Ciccone, simply known in the music industry as Madonna has pushed the boundaries of her talent. She quoted “I’ve learned that I’m not the owner of my talent; I’m the manager of it.”  Be inspired from her determination of continuously harnessing her potential even if she has already reached the peak of her career.

Madonna has always been ambitious. As a teenager, she was a straight-A student and a cheerleader. She graduated from high school a semester earlier for her age. All of these hard work earned her the attention of the University of Michigan, which offered her a full scholarship for their dance program.

Madonna took a leap of faith when she moved from Michigan to New York in 1977. She pursued a career in modern dance. After performing as a drummer, a guitarist and a vocalist in Breakfast Club and Emmy, Madonna signed with Sire Records in 1982. Her name eventually rose to fame as a pop icon when she wrote and produced many songs that reached number one spot on the record charts. Who doesn’t know “Like a Virgin”, “Papa Don’t Preach” and “Vogue”?

Madonna’s journey to success is something we as networkers should use as an inspiration in life. She took control of her destiny by taking risks and being responsible for her dreams. She never settled for good because for her, good is never good enough.
