Anything worthwhile takes a long time

Why You Should Watch It:

In this conversation with Chase Jarvis, Debbie Millman provides insight into her own experiences about success. She touches upon many concepts including worthiness, vision, self-doubt and more. Each of her insights is deep, rich and meaningful and applying some of them have already enabled me to think more clearly and build an even better plan for the second half of 2017. read more

13 Successful Israeli Women Share Their Favourite Tools & Apps

Women are natural problem-solvers constantly looking and finding better, faster and smarter ways to do things. Israeli women are no different. In fact living in the hi-tech capital of the Middle East, Israeli women know that there is a tool or app to help them with almost anything.  

In this post, 13 successful Israeli women share their favourite tools and apps. Check out the ones you’re unfamiliar with and take time to try them out.

InspHERation: Yahel Atsmon – Chemistry Teacher, Davidson Institute of Science Education

 Davidson Institute

Meet the Weizmann Institute’s scientist who’s helping girls excel in chemistry. 

The Davidson Institute, the arm of the Weizmann Institute that promotes and nurtures scientific education in Israel, is where Yahel Atsmon works today and two doors down from where she slept as a high school student learning science during summer vacation at the Weizmann Institute. Yahel Atsmon is the scientist turned high school chemistry teacher who passionately molds young minds, helping students, especially female ones, to teach themselves and believe in their capabilities.

I met up with Yahel at the Weizmann Institute of Science to learn about how she’s passionately helping making chemistry accessible to more girls. read more

Should You Do It With All Your Heart or Not At All?

As a kid, there were lots of things I enjoyed – reading, riding my bike, playing “500” and “running bases” with the kids on my block. There were also lots of things I didn’t enjoy – school, homework, cleaning up.

Unsurprisingly, my mother had a really hard time getting me to do the things I didn’t like doing. And when I finally did do dishes, or my homework,  I always did a crappy job.

The code words that made me feel that I was off the hook

My mother would very easily become frustrated and yell at me, “either do it with all your heart or don’t do it at all.” read more

Expanding HERizons – SWOI’s Monthly Roundup: May 2017

Learning is necessary for growth and development. There’s lots of great content out there, but it’s not always easy to find and we don’t always have the time to look for it.

So every month, I curate the great content that I find and share it with you here in monthly roundups.

During May, Casey Brown’s talk on pricing has prompted me to look into my own pricing strategies. Something which I continue to do into June. I have revisited The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People by Stephen Covey, which has reaffirmed my strong belief in helping other women, being helpful always, and being an attentive service provider. The Growth Show – especially the episode with Stefania Mallet provides more evidence that building strong and effective companies stems from strong leadership. read more
