Sallie's Opinion

Would you rather be a noun or an adjective?

 

Awards season is upon us yet again, and not just in Hollywood. For some reason, last week was the unofficial “let’s recognize women” week.

And that means lists. Lists galore. More lists than you could shake a stick at: Fortune’s “Most Powerful Women.” Inc. Magazine’s “Female Founders 100.” Entrepreneur Magazine’s “100 Women of Influence.” American Banker’s “Most Powerful Women to Watch.”

Don’t get me wrong: I love seeing women succeed. I love seeing them get recognized for their accomplishments.

But when it comes to rankings like these, I have real mixed emotions.

“How Burnout Impacts Your Financial Wellness — And What to Do About It”

October is National ADHD/ADD Awareness Month. While we’ve been celebrating financial wellness for the past few weeks, we’re also aware of how burnout — which impacts all of us, but neurodivergent people especially — can stand in the way of that journey. Here are a few red flags to be aware of, plus how to get out of that vicious cycle.

It’s been a spectacular week for women in the history books: Nicole Mann became the first Native American woman in space, and Emily Sisson demolished the American women’s record in the Chicago Marathon.

Female Collective describes themselves as “a safe, inclusive platform for learning, sharing, healing, and growing” and “a global community for those who reject the patriarchy and status quo.” Check out their 🔥 newsletter here.

Last week, a ton of you told us on Instagram that you get nervous about negotiating job offers. Acknowledging these three myths (and why they’re BS, obv) might help with that.

Sallie Krawcheck appeared on This Week in Start-ups (er … last week) to chat with host Molly Wood about Ellevest and women’s unique relationship with investing.

“The most feared columnist in Hollywood” — Nikki Finke, the founder of trade website Deadline — died over the weekend. She was an iconoclast, for both better and worse. Cue the Oscar-bait biopics.️
