Dorothy Erlanger “Obstacles Become Your Path to Greatness”
Imagine playing basketball with one arm two inches shorter than the other. How do you fit in with other kids when you are different? You don’t. You decide that your first hundred yards to success doesn’t have to be the same as everyone else’s. Having a birth defect proved to be Dorothy’s catalyst to success. Figuring out things on your own became second nature
Meet Dorothy Erlanger: goal-getter, thought leader, obstacle-slayer.
In 1984, Dorothy left her position as Marketing Director of a Fortune 20 company to start a consulting and training practice that grew to more than ½ million in the first year. Her work spans 25 countries and she’s fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. Her extraordinary ability to customize trainings and produce profitable results led to her working globally with top-tier pharma and financial services companies.
After beating ovarian cancer at 50, Erlanger set out to become a triathlete. With perseverance, Dorothy achieved that goal and took it to the extreme. She has competed in World Championship Triathlons four times – so far.
