The Behr Necessities Monthly Roundup: March 2017

Video – Reshma Saujani

Who needs to watch it?

Every mother, father and educator.

What I loved about this video:

  1.  An inspiring and powerful talk. Reshma Saujani is doing such important work as the founder of Girls Who Code, not only preaching, but doing and helping girls everywhere be brave.
  2. I love her line on leveraging imperfection.
  3. This talk is so poignant. We condition are boys and girls differently. Our girls are paying our price and so is society. But there is hope.  

Book – How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Who needs to read it?


Believe it or not, I read this book when I was ten years old. I think my mother bought it for me, because I didn’t have any friends. 

What I loved about this book:

  1. I loved re-visiting it. It’s an easy read. Lots of interesting vignettes.
  2. Each chapter focuses on a different principle, so it’s very easy to come back to for a refresh.
  3. While it seems like the principles are easy to apply and pretty much a no-brainer, I find it a challenge. However, the book is written in such a simple and unassuming tone, it makes you feel like anybody can apply these principles and if you’re having trouble, it just means you need to keep on persisting.

Podcast – Being Boss

Who needs to listen?

Creative entrepreneurs.

Instead of sharing new episodes, I’ll share with you the one episode I keep coming back to, but which I haven’t tried yet. It’s Episode 79 and it’s all about the chalkboard method. And since we’re about to start Q2, it’s a good time to share it, and a good time to get working on mine. read more

The Behr Necessities Monthly Roundup: February 2017

February has been a rewarding month in terms of the content that I’ve consumed, and I’m really excited to share my favourite content this month, with you.  

Video – Theresa May: Role Model 

Who needs to watch it? Every woman and every girl. 

What I loved about this video:

  1. The politics are irrelevant. No doubt, that Theresa May is aware of every single point Jeremy Corbyn makes. And no doubt she has an issue with them. BUT. As the leader of the United Kingdom she makes a strong, passionate and inspiring arguement, making it clear who’s boss and why.  
  2. Theresa May’s conviction is something to learn from and emulate. As a leader, there’s no doubt that there are times that you have to make unpopular decisions. But when, as a leader, you backup your decision with conviction and a solid arguement, you have the ability to win people over.  
  3. Theresa May is so strong and so smart. And she doesn’t apologize for it. She’s a role model for every woman; she’s a role model for every girl. Her important message: stand strong, be prepared and fight for what you believe in. And never apologize for being amazing. 

Book – The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

Charles Duhigg

Who needs to read it? Everyone. Really.

What I loved about this book:

  1. Understanding how habits work
  2. Understanding how the habits of companies influence their success
  3. Learning about the ways stores like Target manipulate us
  4. This is a fascinating and easy read. And there are even practical tips to help you change your own habits.
