Herewith, three “gifts” one 40-something woman would give a 20-something if she were a “Forty-Godmother”. What are yours?
A powerbase of women to support you.
More women need to figure out how to work together to help each other. I don’t think we really get it yet. I see more women thinking you shouldn’t do business with friends. We can do a better job of supporting one another. That is my first wish for a 20-something so that in another twenty years we have a really strong network.
Trust your instinct.
I’m talking about your job, your relationship, buying a car. It’s whatever. Your gut tells you something. When you tune into it and have the confidence to trust it, it’s your own psychic power. You will learn that nine times out of ten, if not even more, you are right. You may have to withstand a little adversity in the middle of it but your gut instinct is right.
Spend all of your clothing budget on good shoes…that you can walk in. If you are going to get 4 inch heels, make sure you can walk in them. And get a good bra!
