How Women Rise: Break the Habits Holding You Back
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!
