This is happening in exactly one week! @heragenda’s panel on how to produce multiple revenue streams. These women did it & will share a bit of their advice. Do you have your ticket? Heragendapanel.eventbee.com :)
The font of all this fervid storytelling is Rhimes, who, at 43, is often described as the most powerful African-American female show runner in television — which is too many adjectives. She is one of the most powerful show runners in the business, full stop. READ the rest @ the NYTIMES.
Birds of a feather…

The term ‘ambitious’ is not typically meant to be negative, but in her early years as a reporter, when Soledad O’Brien’s boss referred to her as ambitious, it wasn’t meant to be a compliment. It was the first time O’Brien realized that being an ambitious woman would sometimes rub people the wrong way. That moment made her understand that on her road to success there would be many hurdles to overcome, however, this realization did not slow her down. A Harvard graduate, with well over 20 years of journalism experience, Soledad is arguably one of the leading women in broadcast journalism. Read her story—>(via Soledad O’Brien | HER AGENDA)
When you see a void, fill it. That’s exactly what Brittney Marshall did. She’s the founder of beauty subscription service, My BrownBox which specializes in beauty products for black women. After signing up for a beauty subscription service herself, Brittney noticed that none of the product samples she received matched her skin tone or had women of color in mind. That realization motivated her to create My BrownBox. (via What It Takes: Brittney Marshall, founder of My BrownBox on How She Runs Her Business | HER AGENDA)
Have you read Her Agenda’s feature on Yael Cohen yet? She’s the 26 year old founder of the nonprofit org Fuck Cancer. She used a personal challenge (dealing with her mom’s cancer diagnosis) as a catalyst to launch something to help others! Read her story http://heragenda.com/power-agenda/yael-cohen/
Yael Cohen makes her mission clear: to educate and engage the youth about cancer, and how to prevent it. Just like the name of the organization, Cohen doesn’t hold anything back when it comes to executing her mission. She travels across the country speaking to people of all ages about how most forms of cancer (90%) can be prevented if caught in stage one. Could you imagine a world where most cancer is stopped in its tracks, leaving hundreds of thousands of people to continue living healthy lives? Yael can, and it’s what keeps her and her team motivated every day. (via A Peek Inside Her Agenda: Yael Cohen | HER AGENDA)

“Men weren’t really the enemy – they were fellow victims suffering from an outmoded masculine mystique that made them feel unnecessarily inadequate when there were no bears to kill.” –Betty Friedan (via Salute To Iconic Women: Betty Friedan | HER AGENDA)
