10-MINUTE MANANGER: Alison Biscette-Glasgow
ARE YOU WHERE you’ve always wanted to be?
I’m definitely a lot closer. It’s taken me a long time to get here doing the things I love; believing in me and my purpose. Persons may see the outside and not be impressed. But I’ve lived it, and I am!
What is your biggest professional challenge?
My biggest challenge professionally is that I’m not professionally trained in lots of areas of my business. I am just a very passionate person following her dreams. But I recognise while that’s the first step, and that’s great, I want to be formally trained and educated.
What is your biggest life challenge?
My biggest life challenge has been fighting against “who they said I was” (or was not, really). Through my faith in God I’ve made significant progress. Those days when I start forgetting, I just shift my focus to what He says.
When you look to the future, what do you see?
When I look I see a stronger, better educated, more patient and successful Alison.
What is your favourite pastime?
Social media. Friends call me the Facebook stalker! I also love watching murder mysteries: Poirot, Psych, Perry Mason.
What is your favourite meal?
Anything my mum cooks. She’s a fantastic cook. But I really love Chinese food. I mean, really.
On Saturday nights, where are you likely to be?
At home with my family, most likely with my phone nearby on a social media platform.
What upsets you the most?
People who are mean to others for no reason! People who look down on others. People who go out of their way to hurt children! Unmannerly people. Bad customer service. Let me stop.
What is your guiding philosophy?
I’m a survivor! I’ve escaped death more than once. Trials will come, I, Alison, will outlast them!
If you had the chance to manage Barbados for a day, what would you do?
That’s a really good question! Let me give you the secondary answer so I don’t get in trouble. I would establish a junior parliament of promising young men and women. Their really genius ideas would actually be implemented. I would also make it possible for second and third formers to travel to other countries and see how they are run; how people live in other countries.
