Hi, and thanks for joining me on this website. I’m Sylvia Montero and I want to tell you a story. It’s one woman’s story about her journey from a plantation shack in Puerto Rico and the Projects of the Lower East Side of New York to becoming the highest ranking Latina in the history of Pfizer Inc, the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, as head of global Human Resources.
It’s my story.
In Make it Your Business, I highlight the situations that most challenged me as a young girl and a young woman: immigration, learning a second language, being a minority, poverty, failed marriage, single motherhood, failure, and layoff.
I did my best to condense my 30+ year career in Human Resources into themes that illustrate how to climb the Corporate Ladder:
- Self Confidence
- Organizational Savvy
- Presentation of Self
I’ve added a special section on issues unique to gender. I’ve packed the narrative with candid stories of my successes and setbacks.
I wrote this book to convince others to reach beyond their dreams. My reflections on my life and career will provide you with the tools you need to succeed in Corporate America.
