"You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try" -- Dolly Parton

How to be Smarter: How the People Around You Affect You. How to be Prettier: If you are an 8 on your hair happiness level and looking for the 10, smaller changes, like a trim or subtle highlights, are usually the way to go, rather than more drastic measures like color or length changes. A total revamp is only necessary if you start below a 5 on the hair happiness scale.

How to be (less) Awkward:  It always makes me smile whenever someone I don't know exits the elevator and calls out over their shoulder "have a good day!" It's an easy gesture to do that makes starting the day that much friendlier for a stranger.
P.S. I was thrilled to be interviewed by 9 Lives for Women, a great resource for women in all stages of their career.
