Social media marketing is like going Beyonce on your customers. (by Gary Vaynerchuk)

I have no understanding as to why, when you’re 18 to even, let’s say 30, why you wouldn’t try to make what you’re passionate about work for you… If you go and become a lawyer or go to school and do all the things that everybody wants you to do, and don’t do the thing you really love, the real question isn’t what’s going to happen when you’re 23, 27, 31, 36. The question really becomes what’s going to happen when you’re 70 years old and you look back at your life and you’re like, ‘Why didn’t I try?’ There’s going to be a regret factor that I think a lot of times a guidance counselor or parent or teacher tend not to think about… They’re worried about your next ten years. I’m worried about your last ten years. And in those last ten years, you’re going to be thinking back… and realizing, ‘Why didn’t I go to Austin (or L.A. or Nashville… wherever you’re going)? Why didn’t I take a chance?’ and really regret that. And that - that tastes a lot worse than going for it, because that’s when you’re most alive.

I can’t wait to Lean In, and start reading Sheryl’s new book: Lean In: Woman, Work and the Will to Lead, with my amazingly smart, creative and driven girlfriends, Amanda, Caitlin and Robin.

nprfreshair:

Maureen Corrigan on Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In:

But, but, but, … there are still some compelling reasons why, echoing some of Sandberg’s supporters, I’d optimistically slide Lean In into my teenage daughter’s bookshelf. First of all, the final two chapters of the book are more hard-hitting, riskier, less worried about alienating those readers, like stay-at-home moms, who may not share Sandberg’s vision. Sandberg kicks off her final chapter by saying:

“For decades, we have focused on giving women the choice to work inside or outside the home. … But we have to ask ourselves if we have become so focused on supporting personal choices that we’re failing to encourage women to aspire to leadership.”

In her famous 2010 TED Talk on the dearth of female leadership, Sandberg sounds more like that: opinionated and challenging.
