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

Do you suggest a new start-up business use an angel investor for funding?
Hi, Felicha. If you are still in concept mode (i.e., pre-product launch) and aren't able to bootstrap, then your best bet is to either crowdfund or bring on angel investors. If you are launching a consumer product, it may be a good idea to go the crowdfunding route first to prove that there is demand for your product. Alternatively, the benefit of bringing the right angel investors on board is that they come with strategic guidance and introductions. They also write larger checks than what you would get through crowdfunding. Getting an angel investment is hard work. It takes a lot of time to build relationships with potential investors, so you'll have to dedicate time to attending network events, scheduling coffees, working your existing connections and building your personal brand.

There never seems to be enough time in the day! What productivity tip works for you?
What a great question! Let me say that I think everyone has to find a routine for themselves, as there is not best answer for everyone. Here are some things I do to increase productivity: 1. I prioritize my to do list at least three times a day - before work, around lunch and around 5 or 6 pm. I put items in buckets such as "urgent; must be done today," "important but not urgent," "things I can delegate" and :"must be done so I can sleep at night." Since things change I usually can accomplish what is needed by 7 or 8 pm and have a good night's rest. 2. I purchased the UP band by Jawbone. You can probably use any band you like but I have it set that it will buzz every hour if I have not moved. It is important that I get up and move around to clear my mind and get some exercise. Building in time to talk to folks, take a walk or the like is important. 3. I keep paper and pen near the bed so I can write things down that come to mind during the night. I can write them down and then relax. Again this allows me to get a good night's sleep and be productive the next day. It also often allows me to be most creative since I am relaxed. I welcome hearing your ideas as well.

I would love to hear more about the financials of freelancing. I'm starting to freelance in addition to my 9 to 5 and how to fill out my taxes is already making my head spin.

Constructive feedback can be tough to absorb. What is your best advice for hearing hard feedback and making changes? Any personal examples?
Owning that it is tough right up front is important. Also understanding that a critical piece of feedback does not negate all of your good attributes and qualities is also important. We as women tend to own the negative far more readily than the positive. I suggest that you have whatever way is most comfortable for you to write down the feedback. Sometimes you can take notes or immediately after so you can evaluate the input, react to it with some personal notes and process it in a way that produces a productive result for yourself

Suggestions on ways to solicit constructive feedback from your manager during the process of a project? (Saw your post in recent article)
Sorry for delay! The most savvy way to get the feedback you need to hear, as opposed to the feedback you want to hear, is to offer them one nugget of constructive feedback you've come up with yourself and to ask them for their thoughts on it. You could say something like "I want to make sure that we achieve X with this project. I'm really paying attention to how I make that happen and one of the things I think I could have done a better job on was X. What are your thoughts? Do you have any other feedback for me?" Offering a piece of your own constructive feedback demonstrates that you're self aware enough to be able to internalize what they might have to say, especially when you do it with confidence. It shows that you've got a growth mindset.

Do you have any advice to build brand awareness? I have a resume writing business and website writestylesonline.com that I'm trying to grow.
It really depends on your market and model. Who are you trying to reach? How does your business make money? For us, marketing is about providing a valuable experience for our boss women for FREE and then having them convert to our more intensive paid programs. Give-aways help us grow our email list, which is made up of our future customers. :) There are other benefits to going a more traditional route, too, like traditional PR / press pitching, but I don't know too much about that, to be honest. Good luck, boss!

I'm applying for summer internships and have made a resume, but I'm not sure if I included everything I should! What should I include?
Hey Ashley! That's great that you're applying to summer internships! Building a resume is definitely tricky. (I personally remember being super overwhelmed by the actual construction of it.) One thing that might help is to think of it as a document highlights a particular storyline. You actually don't HAVE to include everything. You should make your resume one cohesive story that describes why you're perfect for the role. Bring up relevant work/volunteer experience, education, and skills that align with the role. Also, Levo League has a ton of articles that walk you through the resume process. Check out this board on Pinterest will all sorts of advice: http://pinterest.com/levoleague/resumes-interviews/

"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.
