What's the biggest risk you've ever taken and how did you talk yourself into it?
So it's interesting to me because Tiffany and I, it's so exciting that Tiffany's here, she's such a star in the world of women, we're so happy to have her as part of Levo League, she took that same risk. Probably two professional risks I took. One of them was going to work for a 23 year old at a company called Facebook. Sounds really obvious until you remember that I was 38, and Facebook was a site for kids. But I really believed in Mark. A lot of people thought I was nuts at the time. I really believed in Mark, I really believed in what he was doing and he was a wonderful person and I think I never would have written this book had I not met him. Because it was Mark who looked at me and said, “What would you do if you weren't afraid? Stop trying to please everyone. That's not going to work. You're never going to have an impact in the world if you're always trying to make everyone happy. You have to say things and when you say things some people will agree and some people will disagree but you'll start real conversation. Probably the other one, I was in the government. It was 2001, I was in the Clinton government, George Bush came in, they kick you out if you're a political appointee, and I moved to Silicon Valley. No job, no real prospects and it took me 10 months to find a job. Many, many people refused to hire me in those ten months. One of them looked at me and said, I would never hire someone like you, in the first few minutes of the interview. I was like hold it together, don't cry in this office, ask three questions and exit with grace. Which, I didn't cry but I'm not sure I actually exited with grace. But I got through it and I'm friendly with her now. But what I would say is that it's totally not obvious at the time to go to Silicon valley, it sounds obvious now but this was after the big burst, the first bubble burst and I really wanted to do something I believed in and I took that chance and it paid off.

I love to nerd out with Freakonomics and Planet Money -- they both keep me abreast of economics and business but in a way that's fun, enmeshed with psychology and behavior, and relate-able to a broader audience. I have a lot of favorites but these top the list and continue to deliver!

There never seems to be enough time in the day! What productivity tip works for you?
I'm an early person and every day aim to get into the office a good 45mins to an hour before normal working hours starts and everyone else comes in. That way I can spend some quiet time thinking about what I want to achieve that day, making sure I'm up to speed with current news valuable to my work and focussing on what I need to do. It's always good to get some quick wins early on in the day, even if it's just as simple as responding to an email that you'd meant to do a few days ago or return a call - makes me feel productive and sets me up for the rest of the day.

How do you translate your blogging accomplishments on your resume and in interviews? Thanks, Carly!
Great question! This was one of the hardest things I dealt with on my resume. The first thing you have to address is if it's worth mentioning as experience or a skill. Ask yourself if your experience blogging is bigger than what you've learned at internships. If blogging is a huge part of your success, then add it as an experience. If not, put blogging (and the relevant skills) under the skills section. If you do decide to add blogging as an experience, it's ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERS. The more impressive the better! Explain your reach, your influence, page views. If you don't have the best numbers (I might personally reconsider including your blog but...) engagement is something that could be a good sell. How many favorites/RTs do your tweets get, what's your comment/post ratio, etc. One more word of caution.... be sure your blog won't hurt you in the job hunt. They'll definitely go and look at your blog if it's included so the quality and consistency of the posts are going to help you!

Constructive feedback can be tough to absorb. What is your best advice for hearing hard feedback and making changes? Any personal examples?
Hard feedback is tough to hear and hopefully it is delivered with kindness. Usually our first reaction to hard feedback is denial. "this isn't true...I don't do that...however, remember that perception is reality and modifying behavior and wearing a smile ...can sometimes be all that it takes. If the feedback is specific to work performance; ask for examples and suggestions on how to improve. Try very hard not to take it personally; but see it as an opportunity for growth!

What movie have you seen multiple times & despite how many times you've seen it keeps getting better (as inspiration, motivation, fun, etc)?
Hi Erin-Kay - I can't tell you how many times I've seen The Wizard of Oz, but it's one of my favorite films. I rarely see a movie more than once, but there are a few that I've enjoyed, including The Proposal which always makes me smile. Lately, it's been Steven Spielberg's, Lincoln which inspiring in terms of leadership and statesmanship.

Is it difficult for you to take time for yourself and disconnect from the internet, phone etc?
Here's how I'm tackling that challenge! 1. Active use of email vacation settings to set expectations on response times and relieve my guilt on not responding immediately. 2. Use of a social media email account. This is my email account which exists for no other purpose than to connect to social email, ecommerce and other sites. Fewer distractions and less time-wasting checking useless emails when all that stuff goes into a separate, no need to check constantly email account. 3. Scheduling chunks of time to get offline (or alternatively, scheduling the time I will be online). I'll confess, I LOVE It when I'm on a flight that does NOT have wifi! The fact that I have taken these measures is evidence of the difficulty.....and the reality is I want to be present, productive and focused on the stuff that matters (including my sanity).
