By | April 8th, 2018|W2W|

Confidence is critical to success, so make it a priority this year

By | March 5th, 2018|W2W|

Confidence, for women, is a topic we need to talk about more. Raising confident girls who mature into confident women needs to be a high priority for us. Why? Because I see too many women whose lack of confidence is holding them back. I'm not necessarily talking about career advancement, though we'll get to that. [...]

And it's no wonder when you look at the number of news stories that highlight less-than-honest practices, questionable behaviour, and outright illegal activities. We all want more honesty and integrity in the world. When you look up the [...]

Value – Understanding and communicating your worth to your audience

By | January 2nd, 2018|W2W|

What exactly is value? Well, it doesn't have much to do with actual money. Personally, I like this definition from the Oxford Dictionary: The regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something. When I was growing up, my dad talked a lot about price versus value. One of the [...]
