Why I live in mortal dread of public speaking. A must watch TED Talk by Megan Washington.
I wish I could be at Bird Song's Concept Store launch party in London on the 15th Dec. Who wouldn't want to hang out in a feminist superstore?
Jennifer Armburst is writing and talking about feminist business models (which is an interesting concept although I'm still struggling to make sense of the site itself) and I like this poster she has made. (thanks for the link Abby Rose)
Yes! An older women's co-housing community in London. (thanks for the link Ellie)
Do you dare to share the full story? Lovely and important social media campaign to encourage people to be more honest online here.
If you want to stand for something, you can't stand for everything. Relentlessly trimming what's on offer, combined with a resolute willingness to say, "no," are two characteristics of great brands. And linchpins, too. Well said Seth.
I'll be marching for women on 21st of Jan. Non-women are invited to march too. Let's do this!
Mighty Good Things allows people to donate used household items to fund any charity they want.
Now Teach was set up in 2016 to encourage people who have already had one successful career to retrain as teachers.

Bread & Roses was set up to tackle the social and financial isolation that women refugees and asylum seekers experience as a consequence of unemployment. If you are hosting a Christmas party or buying a Christmas wreath go here!
I'll be using this year compass to help me close 2016 and plan 2017. I've used it for three years in a row now and highly recommend it.
I'm going to spend the next few days in Paris. I'm thinking about hosting a Shero dinner to meet new women living in Paris - ping me if you know anyone who should be there.
I hosted a second redjotter meet up last week and intend to do so every month.

I intend to spend more time like Julia and less time on screens over the next couple of weeks. Afterall, time off is powerful.
