These days, being a driven young woman with a full set of acrylic nails, career goals, networking activities, and social events can be exhausting. Striving to be the very best leader you can be, at the same time as all that, can feel beyond overwhelming at times, too. But one thing I feel like we young women fail to realize sometimes is just how brilliant, capable, and in charge of our lives, thoughts, emotions and time we really are.
When I was in college, my dad explained to me the thesis of what Stephen Covey described as the ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People.’ Keeping those 7 habits in mind changed my life…but after graduating college, landing a dream job, and moving to the District, I realized something. This city, and this country, is chock-full of young female leaders, as is evident with the existence of FFL. But how do we best tap into our potential in order to be the best leaders we can? How do we become those female leaders one day, by taking steps and actions to get there today? Well, I answered the question. I’ve got your back with the answers, girl.
