What are some of the best ways young professional women can establish integrity and credibility early on in their careers?
Always do your best work, speak and act with transparency and integrity with your colleagues, reports, managers and clients and keep your word. If you ever miss deadline, find yourself unable to deliver something you've promised or otherwise make a mistake, communicate with those impacted immediately, take responsibility and work to fix it!

What is the most important piece of advice you received while you were starting your own company?
There is so much great advice, but my favorite advice, which is great life advice is from Gina Bianchini "The more haters you have the more innovative you are being." When you are first starting out many of those around you will think you are crazy, and heck, you might be, but I think when people think you are crazy it means you are onto something.

How do you ask someone to be your mentor? How do you make the right pitch in that first email so that you both get something out of it?
First, just go for it! And try to keep the email as short as possible. Find out how you can get direct access to work with her on something. Is there a project she is leading that you want to be a part of? Is there something she volunteers for that you could also? The trick with this email is to 1) let her know you admire her 2) show that you know about her work 3) demonstrate to her that you have skills that would be helpful! In my opinion it is better to create a natural relationship by having the opportunity to work with someone rather than asking them straight out to be your mentor. As you spend more time with someone let them know you really look up to them and appreciate their advice. This relationship will naturally grow.

What advice would you give to a recent college grad about entering the fashion/beauty writing industry? Where should they start career-wise?
Start wherever you can find a job, and just do your best at whatever assignments you're given. You might not get writing assignments right away, but if your editor finds out you're good at small jobs, they'll start giving you more responsibility and eventually some writing assignments. If you can't find a job in fashion/beauty, just work at any publication. On the side, volunteer to write fashion/beauty posts for HuffPo or other blogs. They probably won't pay you, but it's a way to get some experience as you keep looking for something in the fashion/beauty industry.

I started my job in December not expecting to be in charge of day to day operations at our administrative office. Working for a small company, my co-worker (who is also 23) and I report directly to the owner. I was hired because of my extensive experience, but, because of my age and how old I was when I started, I don't always feel comfortable taking the reigns. "Fake it 'till you make it" is definitely becoming my new mantra!

Are there any FREE resources or programs you recommend for learning the basics of Excel and other similar data sorting software?
Hi Sarah, I know that Microsoft has it's own learning tutorials. You could start with that as an option. The other thing to think about is do you work in an environment where people are regularly using Excel as I'm sure a colleague would be happy to spend an hour teching you the ropes. We've just delivered a reception in NY for 300 guests and used excel to sort all the data - it's really easy and simple once you get the hang of it and it's the best office package I find for managing that kind of process. Also really great if you want to mail merge letters etc. Let me know how you get on. Jane

Graduation is around the corner. What advice would you give to new college grads starting their first jobs?
First, accept your own pat on the back. You made it through school and you have a job... that is not happening for everyone these days. Most importantly when starting your first job or any job for that matter-ATTITUDE matters most. Bring your most eager, most willing and best get it done attitude that you have. Positivity is contagious and what any good manager or boss will immediately value, coupled with a willingness to listen, learn and get the task done.
