My Pick of the Week:

On My Own Two Feet
I recently had the opportunity to meet and interview Manisha Thakor. She wrote this book with Sharon Kedar for women to learn how to be financially independent and strong. I love her message especially for younger girls, as I talk to the girls I mentor about respecting themselves and being proud to be independent.

My News:

Leadership Interview
Scott Asai interviewed me for his leadership blog on inspiring young people…as you know, my favorite topic!

Remember I am speaking tonight at the Culver City Public Library (6:30pm) and on march 29th (3pm).
