I just finished the book: Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office by Lois P. Frankel. The book focused on the word “girl” not so much the word “nice”. In other words it’s not mean’t to say that nice people don’t get anywhere in life. And I don’t believe that. But it has some really great tips on how to act, think, sound, respond, and lead as a strong woman instead of acting like a sweet *little* girl that we were brought up to be. Some of content is geared towards an older generation. I think that our younger generation definitely feels more empowered than our mothers in some ways. But I still got a lot out of the book. Have you read it before? If so, what did you think? I know there is some contrasting thoughts about that book.
I believe that some women in the workplace are KILLING it. Making it a better working environment on all levels. I enjoyed reading this article on how women are surpassing men in the workplace in certain areas. All around I recommend the book if you are a woman looking to stand a little taller, believe in yourself a bit more, and stretch your leadership potential.
On another note, I found the photo below when I was cleaning out my computer folders. I like to keep my files organized so I can find things easily. But when I have a screen share Skype session I clean up real quick sweeping everything under the rug in a folder titled “stuff”. Overtime I accidentally accumulate stuff1, stuff2, and stuff3 folders. Haha. But anyway. I enjoyed seeing this photo, going back to memory lane, and thinking WHAT WAS I THINKING WITH THAT BLONDE HAIR?!?! I’m definitely a brunette kinda girl. Here is the blog post from 2009. Reminded me that I’ve been posting since 2008! Crazy!
And one more thing…On Monday I am releasing the new Fall 2012 website designs for Sitehouse. AHH!!! And we are getting closer and closer to the October Workshop. I am so in love with the girls already! We got them in a Facebook group already getting to know each other, chatting, and some are EVEN TEXTING!! What?!?! That’s crazy!
