Carla Harris Shares “Pearls” on Success, Perception, and Power

Carla Harris Shares “Pearls” on Success, Perception, and Power | Womens Business | Scoop.it

Many people believe the only way to gain power is by stepping on others and seizing it by any means. On the contrary, Harris says the easiest way to grow your power is by giving it away.

“Every time you give away some of your power, your power is then multiplied, and you become even more powerful,” said the executive.
“Even when you’re thinking you have nothing to give, you have some intellect, some experience, some access to a relationship that will empower somebody else, and therefore you will be empowered.”

Fewer women in the workforce will cost the global economy US$28 trillion over next 10 years | Womens Business | Scoop.it

You can always rely on McKinsey for heart-stopping data, but few could be more shocking that the recent estimate that you would add US$28 trillion to global GDP by 2025 if women’s participation in the workforce were lifted globally to match men's.

After witnessing the increasing number of homeless people in their community, a team of high school girls with no previous DIY experience joined forces to find a solution. It took a year, and over the weekend, they presented their invention at MIT’s young inventors conference.

The twelve girls attend San Fernando High School, which is 20 miles outside of Los Angeles. According to a story on Mashable, homelessness in the area increased 36% last year.

How to Radically Improve Your Writing in Under 2 Minutes

How to Radically Improve Your Writing in Under 2 Minutes | Womens Business | Scoop.it

We're already more than a week into January, but I'm still slowly working my way through all the "best of" year-end lists out there (there are so many of them!). Combing through these recommendations may be time-consuming, but it's worth the commitment, I've found, as sometimes you turn up an absolute gem you missed earlier in the year.

 

Take the post titled "The Two Minutes It Takes to Read This Will Improve Your Writing Forever," by marketer Josh Spector, for example. As short as it is useful, the piece is one of the most recommended posts of 2016, Medium informs me. It's not hard to see why.

 

Spector offers five dead-simple changes you can make to basically any piece of writing in a matter of seconds that will make it more forceful and compelling. We'd all enjoy reading a bit more if more writers followed his tips.
