What does it take to build, run, and facilitate a group program?

The Wise Women’s Council is my sixth run at a mastermind.

Celebrating Rest, Leisure, and Laziness

This letter is as much a note to myself as to all of you: taking time to nap, to rest, to say no, and to cross things off your to-do list without doing them (or destroying the to-do list altogether!) is about as badass as you can get in a world that glorifies overwork and overdoing.

The Learning Curve

The first time I tried to navigate a stroller into a coffee shop, I was at the wrong coffee shop.

Why We Can’t Keep Having “Best of Entrepreneur” Lists That Are Overwhelmingly Male

What do entrepreneurs actually look like? Entrepreneurs are a rich mix of women, people of color, old, young, and more — yet round-up lists perpetuate the idea that an “Entrepreneur” is defined solely as an ambitious white male. In fact, the latter is more true: women and people of color tend to embrace entrepreneurship at a disproportionate rate precisely because the landscape of creating a new organization in your vision is so compelling. Here’s why “best of” lists keep missing the mark.
