Jane Trahey

  • The most likely place to have your idea-pocket picked is at a meeting. ... Here an idea becomes public property the moment it hits the air waves.

  • Never dump a good idea on a conference table. It will belong to the conference.

  • ... achieving power ... is a combination of timing, luck, and hard work. Plus one other ingredient women overlook a lot. That's wanting power.

  • Power is prominence. Power has the capability of activating and producing an effect. Power is a position of ascendance with the ability to compel compliance. Power is influence. Power is big money. Power is self-determination.

  • Don't fool around with the folks at the bottom. They can't help you. Head for the top guy. You can't go wrong and you can't do better.

  • Wanting power is half the secret of getting it.

  • Ideas are power because ideas are money. Good ideas are hard to come by. They are rare. They are valuable.

  • [On her first job at the Chicago Tribune's clipping library:] My mother never got over it. Every time she would call and someone would answer, 'the morgue,' she'd cross herself and hang up.
