What three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”? Here 40-somethings share three wishes to help a 20-something get a head start on the confidence to make decisions that are right for themselves. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda.
Self belief. You have to believe you are good enough. Stop the questioning and self doubt.

Network. Sometimes it’s easier to stay home and watch Netflix, but it won’t get you anywhere.
Inspired by a panel I was on this week hosted by Sprinklr — from Susan O’Brien, the founder of language learning app, Smigin.
