Every time I interview a 40-something woman for 40:20 Vision I ask them what 3 “gifts” would they give a 20-something if they were a “Forty-Godmother”. Here are one woman’s gifts:
Ask. You don’t know what you can get if you don’t ask. I know now there is really nothing to lose.
Friends…use them. Talk to that one friend who you can tell how you really feel. We spend so much time trying to create a perception that everything is okay. You don’t talk to friends at the time you need them most…when things aren’t great. That is what friends are for.
A savings account. Spend on what you love not what you think you should have.
