I joined a women’s networking group at work. I really think us girls have to stick together. Our first meeting involved many powerful women at Starwood giving us the inside scope on what made them successful. The meeting was very inspiring.
And who could forget the delicious mini Sprinkles cupcakes that greeted us at the door. I think this is why I love being a woman in business. Men don’t bring cupcakes to their meetings. Which brings me to a good point.
Girls, throw out all of those business books that tell you to not bring candy to work, act like a man, etc. I’m finding the reason so many women are successful is because they forced a seat at the table and ran intellectual circles around the men who hired them.
That’s the secret. Spend more time outperforming and not over thinking.
