    Or lucky.

  3. This is good, I am looking forward to learning more- I’ve been working on a couple of opportunities, and can definitley use the insight. Any books/ other resources you can recommend?

  4. Unfortunately, the only way to find out if it’s #1 is to go forward on the assumption that it’s #2 or #3.

  5. When you teach women to view themselves primarily in terms of being a victim you disenfranchise* them from ever being able to adopt this kind of mindset:

    “In other words, an entrepreneur is someone who doesn’t acknowledge the constraints of current reality, or more accurately, acknowledges them and proceeds anyway”

    Every single ‘but women are hurt more…’ promotes the functional disenfranchisement** of women in our society.
