Femininity

We can’t help but share this piece from Female Entrepreneurs highlighting wisdom for female founders from Wonder Woman.

“The greatest thing about Wonder Woman is how good and kind and loving she is. Yet none of that negates any of her power,” explains director Patty Jenkins. This heroine is one who has deep values and ambition. Her feminine traits are not a flaw, rather they essential to her strength. These traits are also producing success stories in the entrepreneurial world. There is study after study demonstrating the achievements of female founders.

Female leadership is an added value both on the screen and in the board room.  Oh yeah, in case you missed it, JLEW Bags is female founded, female funded and has an all female team!

Hmmm . . . wonder if our gutsy gals have anything to do with this shortage?

Frozen rosé—or frosé, as it is sometimes called—is fast becoming the cocktail of choice in drinking spots throughout New York City, say bar and restaurant professionals.  Demand is so strong, especially with the weather turning hot and muggy in recent weeks, that some establishments say they can barely keep pace.

While we tend to encourage #GirlsWithGuts to stand out from the crowd, this is one fashion trend we’re totally comfortable following!

Whale watching in New York City?   For realz!

For the first time in a century, humpback whales have returned to the waters of New York harbor. And not just occasionally, either. They’re coming in enough numbers that a company can reliably trot tourists out to the ocean—within sight distance of Manhattan’s skyscrapers—to see them.  In November, a whale was caught swimming near the Statue of Liberty.  And it’s not just whales: dolphins and seals have also come along for the ride.  This is a marvel to behold anywhere in the world; to see it in New York City, with the Empire State building glimmering in the background, borders on the fantastical.  Read more here.
