Social Media Week

Today I'm sharing another edition in the series of posts based on a 7×7 Mentoring Salon I did for SMW. It’s where seven up and coming entrepreneurs pose a question to seven experienced leaders.

I am inspired by the honest, open and smart advice these mentors offered up. Allie Mahler is a social entrepreneur, educator and community builder ... keep reading...

I remember reading a study a few years back that asserted the age at which women reported being happiest in their lives was 33. I remember thinking “GREAT!” I have something to look forward to. Fast forward a few years and at 33, I have never been happier in my life, it’s true.

Last week I answered part one of a question from a 20-something on how to decide, "What do I want to be?"  A big a question with 20-somethings.

    I am 26 years old. While I know I am still young, I am well aware that I am no longer a child. I've been privileged enough to have grown up being told that I should pursue my heart's desire.
