Season 1, Episode 7
Even the most accomplished and brilliant women struggle with self-doubt. In many ways, women have been socialized to adopt a mindset of “playing small” – stopping us from taking risks, sharing our expertise, and throwing our hat in the ring. In this episode of Straight Up, we talk with women’s leadership and well-being expert, Tara Mohr, about her “10 Rules for Brilliant Women,” including practical tips to quiet our inner critic and start PLAYING BIG. This is a must-listen episode for women who want to play big and the men who advocate for them and support their growth!
