Show Notes

Girls need to decide what success & having it all means for them, & to develop the following qualities to achieve a fulfilling life.

The following are key ingredients for achieving success:

Autonomy creates engagement which then develops mastery

Be willing to take risks, make mistakes, learn, and retry

Embrace your feminine energies and leadership qualities; Instead of making girls change to fit our masculine leadership paradigm, change the way we all see power & leadership

People skills are critical to success

Focus on more internal, intrinsic values like being of service and doing meaningful work vs. externals like becoming rich and famous
