“Own your strengths”

Ask a group of 1st grade girls who the best runner in the class is & they’ll point to themselves. By middle school, many girls fear owning their strengths. They worry they’ll get called conceited. The cost comes when young women don’t advocate for promotions and salary increases. Get clear on your talents and find places to own them. It’s not bragging, I promise. It’s the rules of Real World success.
