Here is a glimpse of what Marian shared in the interview:

You have to have grit, you have to have perseverance, you have to have goals. That’s how it worked for me. It’s in any industry, it wasn’t just in the debt collection industry or debt sales industry.

…lots of hard work. Sometimes you are expected to work harder and for whatever reason it’s not just because I was a woman, I refused to accept that it… So, I just work really hard. Plain and simple.

…how I want the associations to work together. That’s very important to me. We all have a common goal. The reality is that we just need to work more together and not against.
