Delia Ephron wrote “The Art of Fearlessness” which was published in a recent issue of More magazine. I really enjoyed it and am happy to be able to provide you with a link to it:
I hope you take the time to read it; it’s a wonderful “feel good” read to begin the week. And I really hope each and everyone of you has a Jill in your life…I do and I recognize and appreciate how lucky I am almost every day!!
Lately, I have been tweeting about articles I find worthy of reading, however, I thought the article by Sylvia Ann Hewlett in Sunday’s New York Times (April 14, 2013) “Mentors Are Good. Sponsors Are Better.” was simply too good to miss!! In it, Ms Hewlett clearly describes the difference between a mentor and a sponsor. I believe it is important to understand the difference between them and how each of them can impact your career success. Here is the link; I encourage you to read the article and pass it on!!
Ps. And if you are not on twitter, I highly recommend you give it a try!!
Many months ago when I was getting close to publishing my book Babes on Bay Street, a good friend suggested I could expect to be invited to speak about it when it was published and I might want to consider hiring a speaking coach to help me in this area. In fact, she suggested I meet with the speaking coach her husband had engaged and found to be quite wonderful, so I made the connection with Elizabeth Hunt of Hunt Communication. (http://www.huntcommunication.com/)
And she agreed to work with me!!
Elizabeth really focused on the content of my presentation “Lessons Learned by the Babes on Bay Street.” In fact, some of the most magical parts of it came from Elizabeth!! She believes when the subject matter is something you are passionate about and your content is well developed, your delivery will require substantially less work!!
If you have seen my presentation and liked it; …
I am thrilled to tell you my interview with Shannon Skinner of Extraordinary Women TV will air on Rogers TV Cable 10/63 tonight (April 1) at 7:30 pm. Shannon invited me to speak to her about Babes on Bay Street and I was delighted to do so. If you miss the program tonight, it will repeat throughout the week.
Let me know what you think; it is my television debut!!
