Added to my to-read list. Thanks for sharing, +Mana Ionescu 
 
Catching up on my #HBR reading. Sept. edition goes into the biases that hold women back, starting with.. "Emotional, bossy, too nice..." Is this helpful or just reinforcing the stereotype?

Looking for visual inspiration for your own social profiles? Look no further than +April Francis -- we interviewed her for Crain's Social and learned a lot. My favorite new phrase is also "Wabi Sabi."

I don't use my middle name because I'm vain. I use it for SEO. And maybe you should, too.

Hilarious slideshow by +New York Magazine. Ladies, do you find yourselves with a drawer of shoes at work?
You probably have at least one pair under there.
