By - Last updated: Monday, April 29, 2013

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:   http://deliaephronwriter.com/Latest/the-art-of-fearlessness.html   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!!   xo,   J

Mentors Are Good. Sponsors Are Better.

By - Last updated: Tuesday, April 16, 2013

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!!   http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/14/jobs/sponsors-seen-as-crucial-for-womens-career-advancement.html?ref=jobs&_r=0   Ps. And if you are not on twitter, I highly recommend you give it a try!!

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

By - Last updated: Thursday, March 14, 2013

I read Sheryl Sandberg's new book Lean In yesterday!!   And I loved it!! Every single word of it!!   I believe writing this book and sharing these stories and her thoughts on "Women, Work and the Will to Lead" was a generous and courageous act of leadership on her part!! She definitely had more to lose than gain by doing so and she knew it and wrote the book anyways!!   Congratulations, Sheryl!!   I encourage you to read it and I would love to hear what you think of it!!
