Here’s how I found out about today’s guest. I was sitting at home reading a magazine and saw this book featured in a magazine. It was called How Women Rise and it immediately caught my attention. I thought wow it would be awesome to get the author on my podcast. Then, I went to the next page and continued on reading the magazine. The next day, the book was in my mailbox! I checked my calendar and realized, I already am scheduled to interview the author, Sally Helgesen, in just a few weeks. Seriously how cool is that? So all that to say, I am thrilled to introduce you to today’s interview. I think you are going to love it!

Some questions I asked:
Why this book and why now?
How can women rise?
What are some of the roadblocks that women face that are different than those men face as they advance in the workplace?
How can the habits that helped women at the start of their career actually hurt them as they are trying to move up?
What are some of the 12 habits that women should break if they wish to advance in their careers?
Can you give an example of a woman you helped reach even greater heights?
If you aren’t sure what is holding you back, where should you start?
What are the blind spots? Great with details? Team player? Star networker?
What is one action our listeners can take to advance to the next level?
