    Hi Ladies!

    I just watched this commencement speech by Carla Harris at the Harvard Business School 2018 graduation. It's about 28 minutes and a GREAT watch if you have the time.

    Carla is an HBS graduate from 30 years ago and she wrote a letter to her 'student self' with life lessons to succeed.

    2 points really struck me for members of our community that I thought I would share with you:

    1) You have to have performance currency AND relationship currency.

    Performance currency is when you do what's expected of you (and a little bit more.) It's what helps you get ahead as a student and a young professional.

    BUT, it's relationship currency that REALLY helps you get ahead as a professional from your late 20s onward. Relationship currency is investing in the people around you, above you, and below you.

    It is THOSE PEOPLE who will advocate for you, sponsor you, reach out on your behalf, decide whether to give you a raise or opportunity.

    Creating a network is so important for the above reasons. For years, women felt stuck because they didn't have great professional networks. I hope bSmart can be that network for you.

    It's so important to make sure your bSmart profile is up to date and that you reach out to other women in this community so that you can offer them opportunities and in turn, they can do the same for you.

    Much love,

    Meagan

    Hi Laura -

    I have a mom question about the infant age. My little Harriet slept through the night starting at 7 weeks and it was wonderful! Now at 5 months and 2 weeks, she's decided she likes to sleep on her stomach.

    She's all of a sudden waking up at 5:00 AM and crying. I'm fairly certain it's not teething / growth spurt / temperature / diaper. I think it's because she doesn't know how to settle herself back to sleep now that she's a stomach sleeper. If I put her on her back, she'll start to play and fall back asleep. But I can't do that every night.

    Do you think I should let her cry so that she figures out how to fall back asleep if I know it's not hunger / diaper / temperature / growth spurt / teething?

    What did you do for sleep training with your 4 children?

    If anyone is particularly interested in Gender Studies and/or Social Psychology, I read parts of "Cinderella Ate My Daughter" by Peggy Orenstein and found it very funny and interesting! It's about the (often unavoidable) gender socialization that comes with raising children in a society that primes young girls to be passive and obsessed with anything princess-themed and pink-laden, while priming young boys to be assertive, tough, and play with trucks and tools.

    This morning on my way to work I finished reading " Call Me By Your Name" by André Aciman and now I'm looking for a new book for my commute home. What should I read next?
