I'm in school, pregnant, and wanting to launch a business! Many others tell me to wait a few years until I'm less busy. Any advice?
Sharah, wow! You certainly have a very full plate, but that just means you have to section things off in portions. The first thing I would advise you to do is to assess what people resources you have who can assist you with what it is you are trying to do. I would recommend that you set realistic goals for what you would like to accomplish over the next year, five years and beyond. Look at how long it will take to complete school and what is the time frame for the birth of your child? These are important questions that require immediate answers. Because I don't know your particular circumstances it is hard to give specific advice without having all of the variables. Regarding your big question of whether or not you should launch a new business, my answer again would be, without knowing what type of business it is very hard to give a concrete answer. Perhaps a good plan would be to create a good plan, as in business plan. Very often when you write a business plan many of the questions will be answered for you, that is if it done well. I hope this has provided you with some food for thought. If you would like to provide more detail, I will do what I can to offer additional assistance. On a side note, we will be covering this and other topics during our Women Are Talking Global Summit, which will stream live online on this coming Friday, June 6th. One of the panel discussions will be on how to create your personal board of directors for your life. This was designed especially for women who find themselves in very challenging situation where they need the support of others. The website to tune in is www.womenaretalking.org Thanks for reaching out. Best of luck to you!

I'm a pharmacy student hoping to pursue a non-traditional career path after graduation. What advice do you have for carving your own path?
Tierra, Kudos to you for studying Pharmacy. We need more women in STEM careers. After graduation, will you have a PharmD? If so, this degree allows you the ability to go down various paths. What career areas interest you (e.g. policy, cosmetics, drug development, sales, business, education)? What's your top three? Thinking of your top three, I would suggest understanding all technical, interpersonal and conceptual skills you will need to develop in addition to what you currently have from school. You can gain insight by conducting informational interviews with people who have non traditional careers aligned to your interests. Check out Healthcare Business Women's Association, http://www.hbanet.org, Drug Information Association, http://www.diahome.org, and/or MedAd News, http://www.pharmalive.com/med-ad-news to see what people are doing with Pharmaceutical degrees. Then, compile a list of potential interviewees. Contact them and find out why they chose their career path. BE BOLD! Best of luck, Cindy

These are very powerful pieces of advice. We need to stop comparing ourselves.

"Stop comparing yourself to what you see online" That is a powerful piece of advice. Nowadays we tend to compare ourselves to other all the time. That really hurts our creativity because we see so much online. Sometimes all it takes is a day off the internet to reconnect with our inner creativity.

What are the top tips or insight you have for others looking to transition into entertainment from a comparable field?
Hello Lauren - I would say, highlight and focus on those skills and strengths leveraged in your current field that are transferrable to any field. Qualities like relationship development, project management, being a good communicator, having the ability to manage up/learn/lead...no matter the industry, you may find it's easier to make a case for why you'd be just as great for a role in entertainment than one would think. -sd

Great list, excepting the #4 Practice, while true, one should, to use Malcolm Gladwell 10,000 hours quote (like much other his work) is to quote BS. Gladwell is pop psych at it's worse and to put a number on hours of practice is a disgrace to, well, practicing. Here's a good article about what real practice means. http://www.businessinsider.com/new-study-destroys-malcolm-gladwells-10000-rule-2014-7

How/where should I be saving some extra money?
Hello Carol! Congratulations on having some extra cash! I like to keep my emergency fund, which is 3-6 months of expenses, in a money market account that is easy to get to in the event of a emergency. This could be in a savings account in which your checking account is located or a online account. Once you reach your emergency fund goal, you may be ready to start investing the extra cash to more money! If have any more specific questions don't hesitate to email me dbroadway@dominiquebroadway.com Yours in the Social Money Movement, Dominique

Do you think social media has advanced you in your career? If so, in what way?
I don't think it has advanced my career per se because I didn't really become proficient in using and understanding social media tools until I was already at WIRED. It has helped me in many ways - connecting with journalists via Twitter, building relationships with companies and contacts through promotion, etc. Whenever I am looking to add someone to our PR team a high level of proficiency in those mediums is an absolute must. I think social media will be part of every publicist's job soon, in many places that is already the case.

How do you ask for a higher level of direction and mentor-ship from leaders within your company without looking inexperienced and inept?
Focus less on the ask for mentorship and more on being the kind of leader anyone would DIE to mentor! Offer your assistance, raise your hand(better yet don't raise it just speak!), and make yourself visible. It's when you DON'T ask for insight and guidance that you look "inexperienced and inept." Asking for advice to help you achieve clarity is a sign of confidence that will go a long way. The most important thing you can do to motivate a prospective mentor is to circle back with them to let them know how you applied their advice and what the outcome was. Express GRATITUDE. You're already on your way.
