Graduation is around the corner. What advice would you give to new college grads starting their first jobs?
Get organized and start looking! I recommend checking out job sites but also reaching out to your network and pursing informational interviews. Don't get stuck on the 'perfect' job, many positions can be strategic stepping stones for your next step.

Dear Teresa, Please help me about career path in networking. I don't know where to start after graduated from university Regards, Nam
I am sure you know about LinkedIn. I have also found great opportunities when I attend conferences. I make a point to ask for 5 business cards from people who I enjoyed either speaking to, or their presentation really hit home.

I've thought about moving to DC, this article was a great way to see what it's really like to work in politics as a woman. It's still something I'm interested in, but it's good to have some insight into what it's like for women who are there now.

How did you create a specific brand or focus for your blog? Did you ever feel like you were not exploring all of your interests?
The specific brand, and even the focus, developed quite organically over time. I started by writing about things that interested me and then it just sort of grew from there. I actually think the "brand" developed solely because my blog was very much an extension of my authentic self. The personal brand didn't require much work since I was being just that-- personal! I will say that I don't dive into everything that I do in my life, but I do cover quite a lot within the posts (and tweets/instagrams/etc.). I try my best to create a fluid storyline without boring readers!

Hi lizzy , I'm starting a new cafe concept . I would like to establish clear operating systems+employee teamwork , Any advice ?
Hi, Latifa - I'd suggest doing as much research as possible. Go visit business that you think run well and ask various people why they're so engaged or what drives them. As everyone you meet for tips and ideas. One tactic that I particularly respect is the requirement for every employee to learn at least 2 other jobs/roles... literally walking in your colleagues' shoes teaches you a lot! Good luck! lk

What's the biggest risk you've taken in your career and what advice do you have for being confident while taking risks?
The biggest risk that I have taken in my career, by far, was starting my own consulting firm. I was married, had a thriving consulting career, and had become a successful working mom. But my second pregnancy led to serious complications, and my twin daughters were born eight weeks early, weighing just over three pounds each. Their premature birth was a watershed personal and professional moment. Although I had always envisioned a long consulting career, I feared that the demands of my job, which included long hours and travel, would not be sustainable with three young children under the age of three. I also feared striking out on my own, as I had never thought of myself as an entrepreneur. But after a lot of soul-searching, I found the courage to start my own human resources consulting firm. In the beginning, I was terrified to make sales calls and to advise clients based solely on my knowledge and expertise. Before a meeting, I would visualize how I wanted the meeting to go - down to every last detail. I would also sometimes think of powerful women and try to "pretend" that I was confident like them. Eventually, I stopped pretending and began to really feel confident. My advice is that you have to fake it till you make it. Every time I had a successful project, my confidence grew. It is absolutely normal to feel fear when taking risks - the key, is to just not to let it stand in your way.
