Betty White On Career Comebacks

Betty White

When a friend told me she had a spare ticket to see Betty White here in DC, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to go with her. I figured an interview with Betty would be funny, insightful and heartwarming, but it exceeded my expectations in every sense.

Of all the answers she gave or nuggets of advice she offered, one comment stuck with me the most and I knew I had to blog about it.

An audience member submitted a question for Betty: "How does it feel to have made a come back in your career so late in life?" To which Betty responded:

"Thank you for welcoming me back! But perhaps it's you who's been away?" -Betty White

Touche, Betty. Touche.
