What three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”? 40-something women share three things 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.
1. Believe in yourself. “If you don’t believe in yourself no one else will.” There is a reason you’re where you are. You have something to offer whether it be the curiosity of youth or a unique insight or dedicated expertise. Act big.
2. Own your ambition…you can define it for yourself.
3. Not every job has to be “the job”. Some jobs are gateways to other things. Just don’t stay at a job that is killing your passion.
