July 14th, 2014 — 11:09am

A beautiful birthday reflection from a a 40-something... ~ Turned 42 last week. Feels okay…suits me, in fact.

A lot of 40-something women regret making the same mistakes over and over...from dating the wrong guys, waiting too long to ask for a raise or spending time with toxic friends. An entrepreneur I interviewed spoke of this tendency as the sunk cost trap. He ended up leaving a long career as a doctor and years of schooling to go into business ...and then found a thriving startup. "It’s like having paid for a bad movie.
