Recovery tips – things that matter, things to inspire, things to make you laugh. Here are a few things that caught my attention this week.
Read: How We’ll Win. I’m still working my way through this series of interviews by Leah Fessler at Quartz, but what I’ve read is compelling enough that I wanted to share. This is a collection of interviews exploring gender equality with female leaders in their fields, including Tammy Duckworth, Tarana Burke and Sheryl Sandberg. One of my favorites so far – venture capitalist Arlan Hamilton who founded Backstage Capital. Here’s a stellar quote from her interview: “I didn’t come here for just a little bit of it. I didn’t come here to get your scraps. I didn’t come here to get your pity or your charity. I came here to go toe-to-toe with you, head-to-head with you, and to take it all.” Just one of many inspiring voices.
Watch: Highlights from the 2018 Makers Conference: #RaiseYourVoice – speakers including Gloria Steinem, Sallie Krawcheck & Hillary Clinton. Someone to watch – Amy McGrath, a former U.S. Marine and current candidate for Congress.
Thrill: Did everyone see the SpaceX launch of Falcon Heavy? Not to mention the photos of Elon Musk’s personal Tesla roadster floating through space. Welcome to the future. I want to be an astronaut.
Laugh: I’m on a sarcastic coffee mug kick, and this one made me giggle.
Stay Healthy: Liposomal Vitamin C – supposedly is better absorbed by your body than regular tablets or powders. I take this one by Mercola every day, but when I start to feel under the weather, I kick it up a notch with these packets.
Remember: “Above all, be the heroine in your life, not the victim.” – Nora Ephron
Have a wonderful weekend!
