  • 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.

  • 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.
