What you need is less theory now and more action. Find yourself a mentor or two who can demonstrate the skills, since you've probably got three theory.

I struggle with confidence and my self esteem a lot. I feel like I’ve tried everything to work on it. Self help books, self care (working out, skin care and treating myself), affirmations. I’ve done it all and nothing seems to work. Is there anything you ladies do that works for you?

Hi all, I’m looking for ways to develop myself professionally. I would love recommendations or tips on how you continue education in your field to stay relevant and continue to learn about different marketing strategies. Any tips on really good conferences, programs, classes, books, would be so so appreciated. I’m currently a senior manager for local marketing activations on a planned path to become a director. Thank you!

Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!

Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books?
