3 Gifts for a 20-Something


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. Professional and personal karma. People remember kindness and generosity.  I find people that I met in one context early in my career have now, 20 years later, come back into my life under different circumstances.

2. You’ll make lots of friends in your lifetime.  Spend time on the friendships that enrich your life.  Let go of the friendships that drain you.  It isn’t a failure to let go–it is time to make room for someone new to come into your life.

3. Leadership vision. Being a doer doesn’t mean doing it all. Shifting from the need to prove yourself to helping others prove themselves is a joy. It allows you to build new talents and the perspective to see where you need to go vs move forward just for to move forward.
