Don’t Fear Fear

Sometime ago I book-marked an article that I thought was worth keeping.  The title: How To Conquer Fear by Geoffrey James. Opening paragraph: “Fear is the enemy of success.

Digital For example, one interviewee recommended a digital declutter.  Turn off social media, stay off email unless […]

Older Women and Role Models

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I have been fortunate, over the last 30 years, to have a variety of “older women” in my life.  Oftentimes they were my roles models – at 20-30 years my senior they demonstrated a variety of strengths I didn’t know (then) I’d ever need.  They also offered complete, non-judgemental support of my choices: from the […]
