Confident or Humble?

“To get ahead, is it more important to be confident or humble?”

This week for our Question of the week, the vast majority of you said it was more important to be confident than humble in order to get ahead.  Hundreds of you weighed in and over 73% of you said confidence trumps humbleness.

Find a way to be confident but also open to those around you.
