Joyce Bishop has taught college students for more than 22 years.
After struggling with a learning disability as a student, she focused on her visual and logical-mathematical learning abilities and went on to earn a PhD in psychology. Right now, she is in her dream job as staff development coordinator at Golden West College while still teaching three classes.
Drawing from this, John's philosophy is based on the idea that success is about deciding what you want, working out what is important to you In his inimitable no-nonsense style, John Bird - founder of the Big Issue - shows us how to be successful in whatever we choose in just ten easy steps.

She enjoys training other faculty in effective teaching and learning strategies and also in how to teach online. Joyce co-founded a program 19 years ago for poor young women from abusive backgrounds. Since that time, the Pathways to Independence nonprofit foundation has sent young women to college, and have graduated into gainful employment.
For these young women coming from challenging backgrounds such as prison, extreme poverty, abuse, or psychological disorders, Joyce has been their champion. This photo is of Joyce with one of the Pathways graduates, Valerie, who obtained her degree in nursing and is now working at a major university hospital as a pediatric nurse. Sarah Lyman Kravits lives the strategies for success she writes about. As an author and mother of three children ages 11, 9, and 5, she faces the challenges of managing time and fulfilling responsibilities not to mention eating right and getting enough sleep.
In her writing and research, she works to stay creative and keep up with technology and the growth of knowledge. Finally, in her current role as a breast cancer patient, she uses goal achievement and stress management strategies every day to get through a host of new and unexpected challenges. Unlike Carol and Joyce, Sarah thrived in school from an early age based on her strength in verbal-linguistic and logical-mathematical learning.

Fortunately, I have never allowed any fear to force me to choose the easiest option because, as the book preaches, otherwise you would never overcome any challenge. Mostly everyone knows this quote but mostly no one takes it into account. Likewise, another argument in which I could perfectly identify with is shown in chapter three. I tend to idealize the future as the perfect scenario and wait for something better while working for it. I am sure many of you are thinking that this idea is quite risky to be upheld, especially in the business world where nearly everything is about waiting for the best opportunity, but curiously this is the case of the author.
