Why You Should Make Friends With Failure

Silicon Valley believes that if you aren’t failing frequently, you aren’t risking enough. This philosophy serves the high-tech capital well, but chances are you likely don’t follow that same approach in your own life.

But you should. Because failure is your friend.

Henry Ford — one of our great inventors and someone who failed more often than he succeeded — said “failure is an opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” And yet, more often than not, we fear failure and avoid it at all costs, even if it means sacrificing opportunity and potential happiness. We let fear paralyze us until we’re stuck in inertia, when we should be embracing “good” risk and failing up.

Leaning In, Opting Out, and Living a F@ck Yes Life

This post is based on a talk I presented for my colleagues at InkHouse, the PR agency where I work, on August 11, 2016.

In the spring, I received an email in my inbox from our CEO and co-founder inviting us to present a talk (and hone our presentation skills) with our colleagues as the audience. Please submit a topic, it said, by this date. Uninspired, I let the deadline slip by.

“Did you submit a topic?” was the question of the day. I hadn’t and that felt fine to me.

The day after submissions were due, this showed up in my early morning Twitter feed:


How To Write Your First CV

For some, back to school is already upon us. For others, back to school is around the corner. Maybe, you’re a stay at home mother who’s been wanting to get back into the workforce, but you don’t know how to write a CV.
