Turn Their 'No' Into Your 'Yes'

I hate “No!”I will try to turn any “No” into a ”Yes” but oftentimes there’s nothing else I can do but accept the “No” and move forward.When we start our journey of success, we can be deceived into believing that we’ll hit our pinnacle mark of achievements overnight. You expect doors to fly open for you because you’re…you. But sooner or later you’ll realize that that’s far from the truth....more

You Don’t Need a Prince to Lead a Charming Life

We now live in a society where most anyone can get an education and have the career they wish to have. Except for women living in third-world countries, there is little that we cannot do in our world now. You either can make excuses or say to yourself, “Well I can’t make it in this field,” or you can be a trailblazer and work toward your dream. I don’t like to hear excuses. Having made a lifelong study of Women’s History, I have read many biographies and autobiographies of women who were social change agents and did not take “No” for an answer....more

The Worst Advice We've Ever Heard about Women

Women: fickle, emotional, feisty, bitchy, bubbly, pushy, sassy, headstrong, hormonal, high-strung, ditzy, catty. These are just some of the words that are only used to describe women. Good or bad they are out there, and quite honestly if we as women want them gone, we have to work at it, not just complain about it. Most importantly we have to stop using them to describe one another.  I will say that it is unfair and downright rude being described as bitchy, I mean really the word is derived from the meaning of a female dog, it is one of my least favorite words....more

The problem with Indira Nooyi's (PepsiCo's CEO) interview about dealing with the guilt of parenthood

The recent interview by Indira Nooyi, Pepsico CEO, and the thirteenth most powerful woman in the world according to Forbes, has been doing the rounds of social media lately. In the frank and honest interview, Nooyi talks about how she deals with parental guilt and how 'women can't have it all'. While I do appluad her for sharing her experience in an honest and non sugar coated manner, I have an issue with the message.  Her experience about her mother shaming Nooyi for not being the perfect mother and her subsequent guilt seems to send out a regressive message....more
