Take time for…

A friend
To try something new
…and something old
Remembering someone
Baking something
A surprise
A run
Taking the scenic route home
Playing outside
Making a gift — with your own two hands
A second helping
A second act
Yourself

Take the time now before the holiday juggling act begins.

Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History.*

Well-behaved women seldom make history.” *

A few ideas on women behaving badly:

  • Use your outside voice inside
  • Take the last serving
  • BE the unexpected
  • Say what you are really thinking
  • Let yourself be a bad mother for a day, or an hour, or a minute
  • Rock the boat!
  • Be shrill, be downright hysterical
  • Take the credit, take ALL of the credit, for a job well done
  • Think about yourself for a change

So GO AHEAD, make a little history today and tell us about it below.

What I Learned at Harvard Business School

Last spring I took a 3-week crash course in business at Harvard.

  • I learned that if I had gone to business school, I probably never would have gone into business.
  • I learned a few tricks, a new way to look at the numbers.
  • I came away with newfound appreciation for the skills of a really gifted professor.

But mostly I learned that business for profit is hard work, but BUSINESS WITH A PURPOSE CAN BE TRANSFORMATIVE.

STRENGTH

For me, strength starts with my body, and as my body grows stronger and more competent, it fuels a strength in my spirit. It fuels the strength to

Say no and mean it.

Say yes and mean it.

Take a risk and fail.

Take a risk and succeed.

It fuels the strength to quit.

And, begin again.
