Trafficking and exploitation are far more common in the US than one would think – this is a topic I’ve been learning more about lately and this BOF article was a timely reminder of the importance of empowering women.
My friend Lisa just launched these incredible tassles made of scrap material from her clothing line… Her clothing is incredible, and this no-waste component is brilliant and I’m so proud of her for launching this so quickly. Also – check out Kate Arends rocking Lisa’s new releases, shot by Melissa Oholendt. Again, a text book example of brilliant women (who I am lucky to call friends!) partnering to create something amazing.
I didn’t realize it until I read it, but somewhere along the way, I lost faith in myself. I’m spending all of my time focusing on the things I didn’t do well or don’t know how to do rather than focusing on the fact that I’m trying, and that I’m doing my best. And that I can always ask for help. I’ll be reading and re-reading this going forward…
Surprisingly, my most proper friend introduced this game into our lives, and I have laughed so hard I cried many times while playing – often at the look on her face when reading a card. These female-oriented options are hysterical.
Sometimes it feels incredibly, painstakingly difficult to start over. But this article (about Miley Cyrus, with references to Kim K., Victoria Beckham and Kate Upton) makes me realize it can be slightly formulaic – and that millions of people have done it, so I can too.
Isn’t it refreshing that ANNA WINTOUR admits to still learning as she goes? and doesn’t have all of the answers? As an entrepreneur, I’m always hearing that I should become an expert, fake it till I make it, act the part, etc. And there’s a lot of validity in that advice. But at the end of the day, we’re all still learning, and improving as we go… I’m admittedly a huge nerd, but I can’t imagine why you would ever want to stop learning/know everything! What’s the fun in that?
I’m really excited for Northern Grade this weekend! If you are in Minneapolis, are you going?!
