Video and Full Interview Text

Leisa: Hello. I'm Leisa Holland-Nelson and welcome to another edition Women Mean Business, where we're going to take you up close and personal with extraordinary women doing extraordinary things. My guest today is Laura Gibson, founding partner of Ogden, Gibson, Broocks, Longoria and Hall, one of Houston's leading law firms. Laura, imagine we have a young businesswoman sitting here with us today or just listening in on the radio, what advice would you give her as she starts her career?

Laura: You know, it doesn't seem like it was that long ago that I began my career and I got a lot of good advice along the way. And what I have distilled from that advice is that you need to take your will and your skill and combine it to decide what you want to achieve. And you need to determine what your passion is, because if you're not passionate about it you're not going to be successful at it. And once you decide what that passion is you use your will and skill to achieve remarkable things. And if you never lose sight of that, realizing that your dream is nothing more than a goal with a deadline, you will be infinitely successful.

Leisa: Thank you very much. There you have it, extraordinary advice from another extraordinary woman. I'm Leisa Holland-Nelson, president and co-founder of Content Active, Houston's leading Web and mobile technology company. You can find me at or follow me on Twitter at #LHNelson. We'll be back again next week with another edition of Women Mean Business.
