Because it doesn't matter what 'who' we wear but what we do.

I've seen more successful female entrepreneurs with a LIFE degree that have excel - I don't think a MBA is required to make a great leader. You can't always learn how to be a big thinker and risk taker in school.

From the article:
Today, women occupy just 4% of CEO spots at Fortune 500 companies, and fewer than one in five corporate board seats is held by a woman. The pipeline is improving—in recent years, the percentage of MBA students who are female finally broke a third, and 2 schools – Harvard and Wharton – are close to achieving gender parity. But we still have a long way to go.

Be sure to visit the website to register. Their events sell out quickly.

+Marissa Mayer, former VP at Google, is at her first day as CEO of +Yahoo! today AND she also announced that is she and her husband are expecting their first child this winter. Can you balance your family & career? No, but you can juggle it... Balance implies everything is in sync at the same time. Juggling means something is taking precedence while others are in a holding pattern. What do you find needs to be put to the side burner while you focus on the things that demand your immediate attention?

For the record, starting a new position at a company (even when it is the CEO of one of the most influential Internet properties) and having a baby is completely manageable at the same time. It's all about finding focus and peace with the things that may need less flame under them.

In this ITWorld article, 9 tips for using Google+ for business are listed. The toughest 'customer' of social media has always been the B2B business. I'm glad to see that they are coming out of the woodwork and learning to use the tools to help their business. Have any of the tips listed in the article helped you out?

As a professional speaker myself, I have always felt it hard to 'work the stage' for business being that 99.99% of talks I do are no pitch from the stage. +Gini Dietrich has a great article here with tips on how to gain business from a talk. I find that Tip 1 & Tip 7 are the most important to me. Besides I HATE when a speaker spends a third of their time catching the audience up to date on every single piece of business they have done in the last five years.

h/t to +Deborah Dobson for the original share

Two great resources I found that I wanted to pass along to you. I've found a lot of value in both already & hope you might also!

Author Marketing Club
+Jim Kukral has a new (free) website targeted to self-publishing / authors titled Author Marketing Club (http://www.authormarketingclub.com). Jim's knowledge, experience and expertise are evident in Author Marketing Club. Advice I will be taking myself as I am writing a book and several ebooks right now!

I'm currently working with several clients in the book industry (authors, publishers, etc.) as well as co-presenting a webinar with Book Expo America for authors and publishers looking to use Google+ (http://lynetteyoung.com/2012/exclusive-google-plus-webinar-for-book-expo-america) and the information is timely and on target.

Grow Smart Biz
+Shashi Bellamkonda from Network Solutions shared a great website and resource for small businesses Grow Smart Biz (http://www.networksolutions.com/smallbusiness).

I met Shashi last year at +BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Los Angeles at the +Pearson book launch for +Chris Brogan's "Google+ for Business" & +Jason Falls' "No Bullshit Social Media" book (I highly recommend both). Shashi is brilliant and really personable and funny, I would read anything he recommended or passed along!
