  • Do you trust your instincts when they tell you to walk away?

      This is my first post since May because the last few months have been so crazy-busy. I’ve essentially been working two jobs: First, continuing to pay the bills as a supply-chain management consultant, and second, getting a lot in place for Morf3D, the additive manufacturing business I’ve been developing with a business partner for the last two years.

  • It Was the First Time There Was a Line

    I was going to have to wait in line to use the restroom. And I couldn’t have been happier.

I love that it was organized by a student organization, Women in Business. And I love that there was a diverse mixture of women and men both in the students […]

  • Announcing Conversations!

    Since the forming of GirlAuthentic, there have been many requests to tell people what the “model” looks like for a new business that is based on a balance of the feminine and masculine. I have resisted answering the requests with only my specific ideas. I do have some ideas, but I guarantee you they are only some of the ideas, […]

  • Three reasons “leaning in” won’t work for women

    Since I started GirlAuthentic, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about Sheryl Sandberg’s book and ongoing conversation “Lean In.” Sandberg is the COO of Facebook and one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World; her book is loaded with advice on how women can achieve their goals and realize their leadership potential. I tell people her advice is […]
