Barbie’s Latest ‘Career of the Year’ Doll Is Here – and She’s a Robotics Engineer

Barbie dolls have had many roles since their creation in 1959. They’ve inspired children to follow their dreams, with careers like ballerinas, models, doctors, veterinarians, deejays and everything in between. And now, there’s a new inspirational version of the iconic doll on the market — and she’s here to encourage young girls to embark on engineering careers.

Mattel’s Barbie, who has explored over 200 careers since 1959 (some in fields where women aren’t strongly represented like computer engineering and video game development), just announced the latest “Career of the year” doll, and she’s a robotics engineer — a field that has only 12% of employees who are women.

“For almost 60 years, Barbie has exposed girls to roles where women are underrepresented to show them that they can be anything,” said Lisa McKnight, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Barbie. “By playing with Robotics Engineer Barbie on and offline, we are giving girls a new platform for play in their imaginary world and teaching them important skills for their real world.”

In order to expand the reach to girls everywhere, Barbie will be partnering with Black Girls CODE and Tynker (a coding platform for children), and will be releasing a coding e-book.

Krishna Vedati, co-founder and CEO, Tynker says, “Our mission is to empower youth to become the makers of tomorrow through coding, and the Barbie brand is an ideal partner to help us introduce programming to a large number of kids in a fun, engaging way.”

This Barbie comes in four versions, with four different skin tones and hair types, each sporting a different hairstyle. But all four girls wear the same outfit: black jeans, a blue denim jacket, a graphic t-shirt, white sneakers and safety glasses.

So now, not only can you buy a doll that looks like Gigi Hadid or Misty Copeland, there’s also a robot-building doll to prove to girls that science and math are just as cool as walking down a runway.

Robotics Engineer Barbie is another example of Mattel’s commitment to inclusivity when mapping out the future of its iconic doll line. In 2016, Mattel gave Barbie a much-needed 21st century makeover as part of its #TheDollEvolves campaign, releasing three new body shapes for its best-selling toy.

The body-positive makeover was a direct response to the backlash Barbie’s received over the years because of the unrealistic body standards she promotes. She’s now available in tall, curvy and petite sizes which helps the doll portray a greater diversity of women of all body shapes and sizes.

Paul Smith Celebrates Tom Hingston’s Music Career With Collaboration

MAKING PROGRESS: A mutual love of music, art and design brought Sir Paul Smith and the graphic designer Tom Hingston together. The two joined forces to debut “Progress,” an exhibition and capsule collection celebrating Hingston’s 20 years in business.
Smith called the tie-in a “natural fix” given the close ties both creatives have with the music industry. Hingston is best known for working with musicians, including Grace Jones, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Lady Gaga, to create art for album covers as well as direct music videos.
To mark his professional milestone, Hingston wanted to work with Smith to create ways of experiencing music imagery and band merchandise.
“I said, wouldn’t it be great to not do T-shirts, but some super limited-edition, high-end band merchandise instead?” said Hingston. “The products take the imagery that everyone is so familiar with and give it a whole new lease of life.”
Among the standout products in the capsule are hand-painted leather jackets by Robert Del Naja of the band Massive Attack, a velvet embroidered bomber jacket by Nick Cave and acid-colored knitwear by Chemical Brothers. “One of my favorite album covers is ‘Born in the Echoes’ by the Chemical Brothers, so we’ve taken the artwork and

Christian Siriano to Discuss His Career, 10th Anniversary With Fern Mallis at 92Y

HAVE A SEAT: With a new multistory Midtown address and store, Christian Siriano has never been more ensconced in New York City. And on June 12 at 92Y, the youngest winner of “Project Runway” will be detailing how his career fast-forwarded over the past 10 years.
Siriano will be looking back (and forward) with Fern Mallis in one of her “Fashion Icons” Q&As. Along with a celebrity client list that has included Leslie Jones, Debra Messing, Scarlett Johansson and Lady Gaga, the designer has his own loyal fan base that was jump-started by his “Project Runway” win. Of course, that was one of several influential launching pads. Siriano had runs at Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. Earlier this week he opened The Curated NYC, a multibrand store at 5 West 54th Street, in a 1918 neo-Renaissance style townhouse that at one-time housed Fabergé’s headquarters as well as Cary Grant’s office.
Explaining the concept to WWD, Siriano said, “I really wanted to create a mini-department store. If you come in to shop for a beautiful Christian Siriano dress, what else can go with it that looks amazing? I don’t do jewelry so I wanted to partner with great jewelry brands, I don’t do

Kobe Bryant used to dream of winning basketball championships and now may be fulfilling what so many in Hollywood often fantasize about, with buzz building around a potential Oscar nomination.
The retired Los Angeles Laker’s short animated film “Dear Basketball” has been chatted up as a possible Oscar nominee in what he said was meant to be “my retirement letter to the game.”
“To sit here right now, to even hear you say that the film is even being considered for an Oscar nom, that’s crazy. I’m winning championships. That’s what I dream of. That’s beyond any realm of any dream whatsoever,” he said.

Noah Cyrus Reveals the Special Career Advice Big Sister Miley Gave Her

With multiple hit singles and dual upcoming album releases, Miley Cyrus and her younger sister Noah are already ruling the summer music scene.

The twosome performed back-to-back Saturday night at the iHeartSummer ’17 Weekend by AT&T at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, and quite literally sang each other’s praises.

Before the show, the sisters spoke about their friendship as well as their summer plans. Noah, 17, told PEOPLE that her sister has given her helpful advice about this stage of her career.

“Miley says, ‘Just have fun with it,’ ” Noah said. “Because I worry too much, and Miley is like, ‘You gotta just have fun with it.’ ”

The younger Cyrus also reflected on her recent rise to fame.

“I’m really excited because I just started in November, and I couldn’t have asked for things to go better,” Noah said. “I just really feel blessed right now for every opportunity I’ve gotten so far.”

As for Miley, 24, she’s focused on her career this summer as well.

“My plans for the summer are pretty much this – going out and performing the song ‘Malibu’, then I go back to The Voice coming up next month,” she said. “We’re doing the blinds, so back to my red chair!”

Miley opened her set on Saturday with her current hit — and ode to fiancé Liam Hemsworth — “Malibu.”

“I’ve played this song ‘Malibu’ everywhere – but it’s always really great when I can play it by the beach,” she told the crowd. “So, I’m happy to be all hot and sweaty with you guys, my hair is extra wild. Who out here’s hair is super f—-ing frizzy?”

The “Wrecking Ball” singer then performed her new single, “Inspired“, telling the crowd, “they told me not to do this, but rebelling is kind of my thing, so let’s do it.”

Miley dedicated the song to the LGBTQ community and explained that proceeds from the song are going to her Happy Hippie Foundation.

RELATED VIDEO: Miley Cyrus and the Happy Hippie Foundation – Exclusive Clip!

“We’ll sing this one with a bunch of love in our hearts for the LGBTQ community,” she told the crowd.

At one point, Miley, dressed in a white t-shirt, jean shorts, and thigh-high boots, brought Noah onstage to help soak the audience with water guns.

The older sister than passed down the torch to Noah.

“Make sure you’re super kind to my little sister who is coming out here to play next, I’ll be here watching,” she told the crowd. Noah immediately returned the favor, telling the crowd, “Miley killed it, right?”

Noah sang “Stay Together,” “I’m Stuck” and “Make Me Cry” as well as covers of “Electric Love” and The Weeknd’s “I Feel it Coming” (which Miley joined her for, as the duo did a little dance together).

The weekend concert series, which will broadcast on the AUDIENCE Network on June 23 and June 24, also featured performances by DJ Khaled, Halsey, Backstreet Boys, Fifth Harmony, Tinashe and Luis Fonsi.

The Career Advice No One Will Give You

Below is an excerpt from Weird in a World That’s Not: A Career Guide for Misfits, F*ckups, and Failures by Jennifer Romolini, Chief Content Officer at Shondaland.com.

Over the decade or so since I officially became an editor, I’ve sat on a number of conference panels, with a number of silly-formal conference-panel names. I’ve given speeches with post-speech Q&As, been a guest speaker in classrooms, and been interviewed about my career for publications, both biggish and small.

The questions I am asked in these situations range in quality and scope —sometimes people want to know old magazine yarns, sometimes they want to talk about womyn on the Internet, sometimes about something real sexy, like how brands can reach an audience across platforms. But most of the questions I get involve advice — What’s your advice for young editors? What would you tell new college grads?, and then, if the moderator/interviewer/question-asker is trying to mix things up, What career advice would you have given yourself?

This question is an old trope, a popular magazine-essay packaging device, a way to make an audience simultaneously sentimental about wisdom and nostalgic for youth. We see variations of this self-advice construct in web articles, bundled up in “Letters to Myself” books, in videos where semi-famous people fade into one another as they espouse inspiring aphorisms about life. It’s intimate. It’s navel-gazing. It’s nurturing. It somehow flatters us all.

Whenever I am asked this question in public, I don’t really know what to say. (So I say something canned, like “A little sugar goes a long way!” Or something I think will get a laugh, like “Wear a bra!” Hardy har.) The real advice I wish I could give my younger self is more intense and harsh than what I’d give to others, what I’d give to you. It’s not a sound bite, it’s not onstage cool. What would have been most useful to me in the early stages of my career, during the period between first-job terror and middle-management malaise — in addition to all the more general advice you’ve read so far in this book — is embarrassing and intimate. It’s tough love. It’s not always nice. Here’s what I would have told myself. Maybe it will help you too.

You’ll Suck at Everything the First Time You Do It

You will probably suck the second and third time too. Don’t get defensive about this; don’t decide that you should never do the thing again because you’re as worthless as a chin zit. Don’t compare yourself to other people who have been doing the thing longer, who have practiced and are better. Who were maybe born better—who cares. Don’t pretend the reasonable person critiquing your work is wrong and awful and your sub-standard work is up to snuff because believing this soothes your ego. That thing you did sucks, but it doesn’t matter: with effort, you can become great at almost anything except maybe (at this point) professional sports. Accept this as reality, stop getting so mad, stop being so mean to yourself, and start working to make it good.

There Will Never Be a Positive Consensus about You

Some people just won’t like you, whatever. There’s no amount of extra-teeth smiling or forced charm or jokes or compliments or social games or happy-face emoji DMs that will change their minds. Sometimes people just won’t like the cut of your jib. Sometimes you will say or do the wrong thing, put your foot in your mouth, and cause irreparable harm. You’re human, you fuck up. Don’t fixate on this. Don’t clap back. Learn from the situation and move on.

Stop Vacillating between “I Am Garbage” and “I Am God”

This is annoying. And it’s exhausting. All these self-esteem swings are tuckering you out. You don’t need to be one or the other. You’re in the middle. Everyone is. Even Kanye. Moderate your ego. Do your best. Seek out new opportunities. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Some days you will feel good about your work, some days you will feel bad, but all days you are fundamentally the same. Ground yourself so you don’t crave constant validation, so that every accomplishment or positive reinforcement, every negative comment or rejection, doesn’t redefine who you are. Call your grandma. Do something kind. Think about someone else for a while. That will help.

Chill the Fuck Out

You’re taking work too personally and too seriously, you’re confronting people too much with too much hostility, you’re letting every tiny facet of work get under your skin, and you’re freaking people out. Put aside that America hates assertive/ aggressive/ambitious women more than it hates puppy killers; put aside that if you were a man, these “problems” would most likely never have been a concern. The fact that all your performance reviews say “difficult,” “rubs people the wrong way,” “bedside manner: meh” cannot be blamed entirely on misogyny. This is not the case for everyone, but it is for you. You need to slow your roll just a bit, find the middle of your dial, take the time to pause, read the room, think it out, and come at the issue calmly, with a plan. By not doing this, you’re hurting yourself more than you’re hurting anyone else.

Stop Treating Your Career Like a Race to the Death Sprint

Man alive, you are going to put so many hours into this career, so many weekends and early mornings and late nights. You are going to talk about this career until you’re hoarse, and work so hard you feel blind. You need to slow down; it’s not going anywhere. You need to take care of yourself. Stop drinking so much. Get some sleep. Sit for a moment with your disappointments instead of racing to the next thing. Stop trying to run away from uncomfortable situations. Identify your triggers; understand what makes you feel most anxious and insecure, so your anxiety and insecurity don’t make you do fucked-up things to other people. Read all those old New Yorkers. Or don’t. Read a trashy book. Or better, read Cheryl Strayed. Just read something that has nothing to do with your job. Stop hoarding your vacation days. They’re not going to fire you, at least not for taking a vacation. Take advantage of the health care plan you don’t understand that costs you $ 7,995 a month and get yourself some therapy. You need it. Needing it doesn’t make you a freak. Go to the gym. Or take a walk. Do something active with your limbs. Spend two hours a day not thinking about work. Don’t eat four pieces of toast and a block of cheese before bed unless you want to wake up feeling like you ate four pieces of toast and a block of cheese. When all else fails, do a face mask. It’s going to be OK. You’re weird, sure, but you’re better than you think. Sometimes you’re even great.

From EW Archives: A Look Back at Roger Moore’s Career as the Best Bond

Legendary British actor Roger Moore has died at the age of 90 after an iconic career on the silver screen — including his record time as James Bond. This 2008 interview from EW takes a look back at Moore’s career and how he became “the best Bond.”

“Can I get you a drink, Mr. Moore?”

The waiter stands there, secretly hoping that he’ll say those five words known from the beaches of Rio to the bazaars of Cairo to the ski slopes of Gstaad: Vodka martini—shaken, not stirred.

“I’ll have a…Bloody Mary.”

Roger Moore is sitting in the posh dining room of New York City’s St. Regis hotel. He is wearing a crisp white shirt (French cuffs, naturally), a blue-and-red-striped tie (Savile Row, of course), and a blue blazer with a tiny florette pinned to the lapel signifying that the erstwhile international man of mystery is a Commander of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Seated next to him is his fourth wife, Kristina, a lovely blonde with a vaguely European accent.

Every eye in the room is on him. Middle-aged men and their wives crane their necks just to hear his voice. This is what it is to be in the elite fraternity of actors who have played James Bond. When Moore‘s drink arrives, he swishes it around in his mouth like a fine bordeaux and announces “This is the best goddamned Bloody Mary I’ve ever had!”

Adjectives almost fail to do justice to Moore‘s speaking voice. It’s a purr coated in honey and caramel and molasses. He is 81 and has a leathery tan. If you squint just a little, he doesn’t look all that different from when we last saw him—in a steamy shower, canoodling with Tanya Roberts in the closing scene of 1985’s A View to a Kill (“Oh, James!”)—the last of his seven debonair, sardonic turns as 007.

I was 8 years old when I saw my first James Bond film. It was the summer of 1977. I consider myself blessed by the timing. The Spy Who Loved Me was not only the best Bond movie Moore ever made (an opinion he shares, by the way), it was also—thanks to the luscious Barbara Bach and the steel-toothed giant Jaws—one of the best films in the series.

Moore was the first Bond I knew. Like anyone who grew up in the ’70s, I’d later catch up with the older Connery films on TV. But they didn’t compare. They just seemed like smudgy Xeroxes of the Bond I’d first seen in the theater. And where was the fun? Sure, Connery was more dangerous, rougher around the edges, deadlier with a Walther PPK. But Moore was lethal from 10 paces, armed with nothing more than a cocked eyebrow and a saucy bon mot. And if there was some sort of sexual double entendre in that bon mot, well, all the better for an 8-year-old.

Moore had the good luck to play Bond during the last gasp of the Cold War. Often the plots were needlessly byzantine and downright absurd (the outer-space love story involving Jaws in Moonraker comes to mind). But most of Moore‘s Bond flicks were catnip to boys who hadn’t discovered girls yet. In Live and Let Die, he got entangled in Caribbean voodoo. In The Man With the Golden Gun, the villain had a superfluous nipple. And in For Your Eyes Only, he was chased down the Italian Alps by Aryans on motorcycles—Aryans on motorcycles! Cheese, yes. But served up with just the right amount of ham, thanks to Moore.

Moore played 007 more times than any other actor. By rights of possession, he owns the part. Connery appeared in only six, if you exclude the unofficial and embarrassing 1983 comeback Never Say Never Again (I doubt even Connery wants to include that one). And as any apprentice-level 007 aficionado knows, there were also the blink-and-miss George Lazenby (one film), the placeholding charisma vacuum Timothy Dalton (two), and the so-suave-he-was-almost-bland Pierce Brosnan (four). Now, of course, we have Daniel Craig, who’s updated Bond into a sort of sadistic, knuckle-scraping Jason Bourne in a tux. He’s serious, flawed, and, if you ask me, kind of a drag.

The knock on Moore has always been that he played the character too lightly. He was too arch. Too jokey. But that seems a bit rigid. Moore‘s Bond films grossed $ 1.2 billion worldwide. He took over a hugely popular franchise after its leading man walked and kept it humming for 12 more years. As far as I’m concerned, Moore is, was, and will always be Bond. It’s not a critical argument, just one from the heart.

When I explain this to Moore—that the Bond you love first is the Bond you’ll always love most, he seems genuinely touched. I think he even calls me “dear boy” before turning to Kristina and saying, “Darling, get Sean on the phone. He needs to hear this.”

After ordering a couple of insanely expensive hamburgers, Moore and I dig into his double-0 legacy. Moore is aware of his lightweight, also-ran reputation within the Bond universe. And he’s actually damn proud of it. “To be associated with success is absolutely wonderful,” he says. “If my first one, Live and Let Die, had not been a hit, people might have said, ‘Oh, he was the poor fellow who only made one,’ which is unfortunately what they say about George.”

Moore has just published a new memoir called My Word Is My Bond. The timing is no accident. He’s smart enough to know that piggybacking its release on that of the 22nd Bond film, Quantum of Solace, is good business.

Both in the pages of his book and in person, Moore, the only child of a policeman and a homemaker, is a cheeky raconteur. Naughty anecdotes from the exotic, far-flung sets of his Bond films pour out of him, like the time when his View to a Kill costar Grace Jones smuggled a very lifelike sex toy into bed during their onscreen love scene, or the fact that his diminutive Man With the Golden Gun castmate Hervé Villechaize had a sweet tooth for strippers from Hong Kong.

Moore also tells a story that should get the legions of Connery purists shaken and stirred too. Namely, that he was considered for the role of 007 in 1962’s Dr. No before Connery was tapped. “That’s what they told me, at least,” he says. “They also said I was Ian Fleming’s first choice. But Ian Fleming didn’t know me from s—. He wanted Cary Grant or David Niven.”

By the early ’70s, Connery had grown weary of Bond and had become increasingly testy about the financial details of his contract. So Bond producer Cubby Broccoli came back to sniff around Moore, who had just wrapped the British TV series The Persuaders! In 1973, he offered the actor a three-picture deal. Moore knew it wouldn’t be easy to make fans forget about Connery, so he wanted to put his own stamp on the character. “I tried to find out what Bond was all about,” he says, “but you can’t tell much from the books. There’s the line that says ‘He didn’t take pleasure in killing, but took pride in doing it well.’ So that’s what I did. But the other side of me was saying, This is a famous spy—everyone knows his name, and every bartender in the world knows he likes martinis shaken, not stirred. Come on, it’s all a big joke! So most of the time I played it tongue-in-cheek.”

Moore is the first to admit he’s no Olivier. Well, second, after the critics who crucified him as 007. In the past he’s been quoted as saying, “My acting range has always been something between the two extremes of ‘raises left eyebrow’ and ‘raises right eyebrow.’” When asked about this bit of self-deprecation, he adds, “I can also wiggle my ears.”

As our hamburgers arrive, Moore delicately reaches for a knife and fork—yes, he actually eats a burger with a knife and fork—and says, “Listen, if I say I’m s— as an actor, then the critic can’t, because I’ve already said it! For years my agents would tell me, ‘You’ve got to stop saying these things about yourself. People will believe you.’ So? They may also be pleasantly surprised!” Actually, Moore says that he did bring one bit of Method acting to the role of Bond. In each of the films, whenever he went face-to-face with a villain in a scene, he would imagine that the bad guy had halitosis. “If you watch those scenes, you’ll see I look mildly repulsed.”

In Moore‘s sixth Bond film, 1983’s Octopussy, the secret agent squared off against a rival that even Ian Fleming couldn’t have dreamed up: Sean Connery. After leaving the franchise 12 years earlier, Connery had returned in the unsanctioned 007 movie Never Say Never Again, which opened four months after Octopussy. The high-noon box office showdown seemed like it would reveal, once and for all, America’s favorite Bond. Octopussy won. When I ask Moore if he felt any competitiveness with Connery at the time, he smiles. “No more than two jockeys who are going to be paid anyway for running the race. But it would be nice if you won because you’d get the extra bonus. But really, no more than that. Sean and I are friends.”

As he finishes this sentence, a stranger comes over to our table. It’s Plácido Domingo. Moore gets up, and the two go off to the side of the room to catch up. I ask Kristina how these two know each other, and she tells me that they often play tennis together while on vacation in Acapulco. Of course they do. Then I ask her where she and Moore live. She replies, “We spend the summers in Monaco and the winters in Switzerland.” What did you expect?

When Moore returns to the table, he launches into his reasons for leaving the franchise. He twists open a mini-bottle of ketchup, pours some on his burger, and then licks the rim of the bottle to catch a stray dollop. “It had been on my mind for a long time,” he says. “I became very conscious that I was getting long in the tooth to play the great lover. Not that I ever needed Viagra,” he says, shooting a rascal’s grin at his wife. “I was 57 in the last one. You can see I was getting a little scraggy around the neck.”

Afterward, Moore made a few appearances in forgettable films, passed on a TV series with Burt Reynolds, and began working as an ambassador for UNICEF, which he continues to do today. But mostly he just wandered away from acting, happy to live the good life, ski, and play tennis. “I was not born with tremendous ambition,” he admits. “And thank God, because my contemporaries who had ambition are all dead. It can kill you.”

Ambition or not, Moore has always worked hard not to criticize, or even comment on, the Bonds who came after him. He’s too diplomatic for that, too classy. So when I ask him his opinion of the newer-model 007s, I’m not surprised that he waves the question off with his hand. But I ask again. “Okay, I’ve seen Daniel’s Casino Royale, and I thought it was bloody good! I saw bits of the Timothy Dalton ones, and I saw one of Pierce’s and I thought that was a bit phantasmagoric—invisible cars! They went too far.” However, he says, “in 47 years they haven’t made many mistakes with the Bond franchise. They’re clever enough to sense a trend. And the trend right now is for hard, gritty Bond.”

If that’s the case, and the Bond movies reflect the times in which they’re made, what does he think the Roger Moore Bonds were trying to say about the late ’70s and early ’80s? He thinks about it for a minute, then seems to grow frustrated. “People are always reading things into the films,” he says. “But we set out to make entertainment. There’s no hidden agenda. They’re just ‘Wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am, here comes a pretty girl, there goes a car chase, let’s shoot a helicopter down.’ That’s as deep as they got.”

Just then, a man in his 40s approaches. He hovers behind Moore, waiting for the right moment to say something. Finally, Moore turns around and shoots him a “Can I help you?” stare. The man stammers and clears his throat. “I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m a huge fan and I just wanted to hear your voice. Could you say something—anything?” Moore takes his napkin from his lap and slowly folds it. “Thank you, that’s very nice of you.” That’s it. The man walks away, giggling, a childlike smile on his face. I ask Moore if he ever gets tired of this. Tired of the fact that wherever he goes, he’ll always be hounded by people who want a piece of James Bond.

He almost chokes on his Bloody Mary.

“Are you kidding? I’m damn lucky!”

Then comes the old Moore quip. “…I’ve been lucky, said the man as he stepped into the street.” He crashes his hands together, mimicking the impact of an oncoming bus.

His wife and I politely laugh.

But our reaction isn’t hearty enough. Moore wants more. So he calls upon the deadliest weapon in his arsenal and cocks his left eyebrow.

Talk about a license to kill.

Stan Herman Offers Historic Take on Fashion and his Career

NEW YORK — Sixty-plus years into a multitiered fashion career, Stan Herman understandably had a lot to say during a 92Y question-and-answer session Tuesday night.
The designer, who headed up the Council of Fashion Designers of America from 1991 to 2006, offered an historical perspective that few could match. And he couldn’t have been more relaxed with Fern Mallis, who first interviewed him in 1968 after she won a Mademoiselle magazine contest. Diane von Furstenberg, Reed Krakoff, Yeohlee Teng, Steven Kolb and Bernadette Peters were among those who attended.
While designing uniforms for brands like McDonald’s, Avis, JetBlue and FedEx involved more of a low profile, Herman may be more recognizable with Middle America for the signature loungewear he has sold on QVC for 23 years. And Herman isn’t easing up on the gas pedal in his own life. Longevity is a family trait — his father, who had a chain of silk shops, lived until the age of 105, and only stopped working at 100 and gave up horseback riding at 93.
Having once had a summer job at Vogue Patterns and having lived in an 86th Street rooming house for $ 38 a month, Herman brought to life an era that is pretty much alien

How A Former Shy Girl Became A Confident Career Coach

Dear readers,

Welcome! I’m a self-employed career and business coach who helps introverts clarify and thrive in their true livelihood so they can have the meaning and balance they crave. I love my work, and I can’t wait to start getting your questions for this career and business advice column for introverts.

Let’s start off this relationship with me confiding in you.

My shy girl past

I was painfully shy all through my school years. I loved to escape by reading and climbing trees. Up in a tree, I could relax and watch people, but they couldn’t see me.

When I was little, people could barely hear me speak—if I could get any words out at all. The more people demanded I speak up, the worse I felt about myself, and the more I wanted to hide and stay silent.

I grew up in a loud and extroverted family, and I didn’t understand why I felt so out of sync. I craved quiet. I almost craved invisibility as well. One time, I crawled into a refrigerator box on the patio and happily read there for hours. I was delighted that no one could find me!

And yet, I also hated invisibility. I wanted to be noticed, to be heard! I had questions to ask. I had plenty of ideas and opinions. I just had trouble saying them out loud.

I was also highly sensitive—easily rattled by noise, light, speed, heights, and, well, people. (It wasn’t until I was an adult that I discovered what “high sensitivity” was and how to work with it instead of against it.) Turns out, it often correlates with introversion.

As a result of my sensitivity and external stressors, I suffered from a lot of anxiety. I didn’t know this then; to me, swirling thoughts, stomachaches, and fear of speaking (at all) was my normal state of being.

Throughout school, I was obsessed with getting good grades, probably as a way to not rock the boat and remain invisible. But when my 11th grade English teacher assigned an oral report, I panicked! I approached the teacher after class to see if she would just give me an F so I wouldn’t have to do it. An F for me was a horrifying thought, but speaking in front of the class was worse.

She refused, and I lived with a stomachache and panicky thoughts for two weeks. At last, I eked out a passable report. I think the pounding of my heart must have been louder than my trembling quiet voice. It felt like a miracle that I survived the experience.

(My heart goes out to kids in the same situation today. Luckily, teachers are getting more information about how to help.)

Speaking got easier in college. I didn’t “grow out of shyness” as people often assume will happen; rather, I finally tuned into my passions. The more interested I was, the less I noticed my fear.

Still, I dreaded giving oral reports, and I was one of the quieter students in class. I was driven by passions, but I still wasn’t confident.

My winding career journey

After college, I wanted to save the world, and I thought teaching was the perfect outlet. Despite my fears, I took a job as a health educator.

With the help of on-the-job training and a pre-set curriculum, my speaking anxiety gradually went away! My confidence was growing. Looking back, I now understand that passion (along with support) can trump fear. That lesson has shaped my work.

Even though I had more ease and confidence with public speaking, I still found it exhausting. After far too many days ended with my head on my desk and me in tears, I quit my job without another one lined up. I quickly went through my small savings and had to get help.

I went to a career coach, who helped me understand why my last job wasn’t a good fit. What a relief it was to learn I wasn’t a freak! There was nothing wrong with me, nothing to fix—I was simply an introvert and needed to focus on my strengths.

After that turning point, I tried various roles over the years, including human resources management and web marketing. I chose work that allowed more alone time to think, and I still found ways to have a say in groups. I found my own leadership style, and my confidence grew.

Still, I had a sense that work could be more fulfilling. With much soul searching and professional career guidance, I discovered that I was happiest when using my coaching skills, and I decided that coaching was the best fit for me.

My long-term dream of self-employment started to come into focus as I imagined being a coach. I was ready to spread my wings even wider.

But are introverts good at being self-employed?

At first, I was nervous about whether I could handle things like promoting and growing a business, which are typically associated with extroversion. I simply couldn’t bring myself to promote my business in the standard extroverted way.

To my surprise, the more I did things my own way, that was aligned with me, the better things went! People were drawn to my events and services, probably because of my authenticity and non-salesy approach. My business grew.

Turns out introverts can be great at the so-called extrovert territories of leadership, self-employment, and self-promotion—if they do it their own way.

I discovered I could just show up at a networking event, without perfect words, and simply engage in meaningful conversations. No sales pitch in hand. I was just myself. No extrovert mask. No race to collect stacks of business cards.

The more I took steps that aligned with my heart and my nature, the more excited and fulfilled I felt. My work energized me. People commented that I was glowing. And that glow helped attract more clients. Being true to myself paid off. It felt like a gift from heaven.

Who I am today

People who know me today are surprised to hear that I used to be extremely shy. In fact, sometimes they don’t understand that I’m still introverted, but I am. I’m confident, and I enjoy socializing, but it has to be on my terms. I still value my alone time, when I can slow down, breathe, and listen to what my heart tells me.

Introduction to this advice column

I’m not about doling out directions such as “you should do X because I said so.” I want to help you find and do what is true for you. I can detect where things are getting off track and help nudge you back into your true path.

Above all, I want you to understand that you can earn a living and be true to yourself. I’m challenging that outdated cultural norm that says we have to become extroverted to succeed. That’s what the Quiet Revolution is about, and I’m on board.

Career or business worries? Want to know how to say something at work? Want to figure out how marketing or networking can work best for you? Send your questions to Val Nelson!

Kim Kardashian Thought Her Career Was Over After Divorce From Kris Humphries

kim kardashian kris humphries

Very famous person Kim Kardashian thought her career would long be over by now.

In an interview with The Drum on Friday, the star admitted she believed her time in the spotlight was finished after her 2011 split from NBA player Kris Humphries.

“At the time when I was going through the divorce I did say to everyone, ‘You guys I think our careers are over. I hope you’ve saved your money. And now we’ll just continue to do our clothing stores and continue to do what we started off doing before the show,'” Kardashian said.

“I was being very paranoid,” she continued. “I just took some time off and the time was really good for me. I cancelled everything. I had a book tour, I had a fragrance launch, I had everything that you could possibly imagine and I just cancelled it all and I took time for me.”

Kardashian has, along with the rest of her family, only rose to even greater prominence in the years since the split. One piece of potential evidence? Her high-profile marriage to Kanye West spawned the No. 1 most-liked photo on Instagram. That is, until yesterday, when one of younger sister Kendall Jenner surpassed the record.

So yeah. The Kardashian-Jenner empire seems to be doing just fine.

Youre Being Googled! Building an Online Presence and Networking Strategy That Advances Your Career


In today''s world, the Internet is proving to be the most important resource people can use to network and put their name out in the open. When searching for a person on Google, what does – and doesn''t – show up in the search results can be either rewarding or damaging to an individual. Digital dirt- whatever is associated with a person''s name in search features – can help to highlight an individual''s past experiences, skills, and talents. Yet links to negative websites, unflattering pictures, or bad associations can hinder a person from achieving the opportunities they seek.Six Figure Networking aims to advise readers about the advantages of various social media tools, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, as a way of networking yourself to the world. If the information isn''t out there, no one is going to be able to find it. But the information has to be positive in order to be advantageous for building connections, and not anything that will deter people from associating with you.So what if you haven''t spent the last year honing a great online image and building a community of followers ready to recommend you at a moment’s notice? Is it too late? No. Franzoni and Greenspan first provide readers a fast overview of the social media landscape from large public open spaces to a host of highly effective niche markets for your message. Then they show you how to use the tools – and avoid the social gaffes – both obvious and at least three you haven’t considered. And, they provide real-life examples of successful job campaigns including how to express yourself in different social outlets. Finally, a plan for personal branding that will get you through your current search and provide some career insurance in future years.

6 Ways to Improve Your Career as an Artist in the Music Industry

I was walking down the aisle of our local grocery store focused heavily on the items on the shelves on either side while my wife strolled a few paces behind looking at our shopping list. My cell phone rang a familiar ring tone of a close industry friend. “Patrick, I need you to call this number when we hang up. Are you sitting down?”, he asked. I replied, “No. I’m in the grocery store.” He continued to share that Spencer would have a shot at being in a feature film if we could work out the logistics on short notice. Of course my jaw dropped as I tried to pantomime what I was hearing to my wife who was perplexed why I was stalling our evening excursion to talk on the phone. I held my phone out so she should see who was on the line and she waited for me to hang up so I could explain why I had a look of shock on my face. “I have to call the director of a film that starts shooting this coming weekend in Baton Rouge because they requested Spencer to have a cameo and perform one of the singles off his album. I have to call them now.”

My wife had an equal stunned look on her face as she watched me dial. “Aren’t you going to tell Spencer first?” I shook my head and simply replied, “Um, no.”

There it was. A two minute phone call and a 7-day notice to arrange a 15-hour drive to Baton Rouge to appear in a film. We didn’t even know the potential pay for such a thing, but learned it wasn’t bad for a day’s work. But the opportunity, exposure and networking this would create for Spencer was all worth the time and investment to do it.

The longer I am in the ocean called the music industry, the more I’m learning about the moving tides, the sharks, undercurrents, and the opportunities to catch a wave versus the stagnant areas of a lagoon or oxbow. I’ve watched artists get pulled under, swimming too fast and too far away from shore only to not have the energy or ability to make it back. I’ve seen those who are content to build castles by the water’s edge or splash around in the knee-deep tide pools near shore. I’ve also witnessed the giant luxury liners in deep waters who represent the major stars in the industry who have enough money to have a full crew navigate them through the choppy waves to connect with many shorelines throughout their career. As far as metaphors go, sorry to be so funny, but the music industry is simply a sink or swim reality. You have to keep moving either under your own power or using some device or vessel to assist you if you want to remain in the water.

The phone call was nothing I was mapping out or planning to pursue for Spencer. But when the call came, we had to be ready to adjust our current plans to ride a wave that may carry him somewhere beyond his current area of the ocean. Subconsciously, an artist should be prepared to do this. That leads to my first tip to improving your career as an artist.

2015-06-22-1435016086-5703047-puzzlePieces.jpg

1) Practice Being A Contortionist
The difficulty of many artist’s lives is the most valuable resource you have, which is time. Many artists are chained to a regular job or some other life circumstance that makes it difficult to respond when opportunity presents itself. Being extremely flexible (contorting) is not meaning to never commit to anything in hopes of something better, but it’s more about knowing your goals so clearly that when the right opportunity presents itself, you are able to rearrange your life to accommodate. The more you network and meet people along your journey, the more likely one or more of them will call on you someday to participate in an opportunity they refer or have for you. Be prepared to respond to a sudden wave that presents itself.

2) Become A Mind Reader
If you are fully aware of your target fan base, you’ll be more able to focus your energies to meeting their wants and needs. Even though the artistic and creative side of music sometimes causes an artist to remain inward focused, the reality is that without your fan base, you are creating for an audience of one. Take time to connect with your fans through social media, live events, or arrange meet and greets when you can. Unfortunately, knowing who listens to your music isn’t the only goal of knowing your audience. The word KNOWING requires interaction, and that is where your personality and the human side of you can trigger a deeper connection. Taylor Swift is infamous because of how hard she has worked and continues to make personal connections with her fans. That process takes time and in the end it will build a stronger loyalty for your music and artistry.

3) Define Your Makeup
I’m not talking eye shadow here. I had a conversation with a 20 year music industry A&R veteran who shared a great piece of wisdom. He explained that an artist is both creative and entrepreneurial in their makeup. Some are more of an artist than entrepreneur and visa versa. So if you had to make a pie chart of your split, what would that look like? For example, if you find yourself enjoying creating music but also enjoy babysitting your cash flows, then you may have a 50/50 split. Some are 80 percent artist, only 20 percent entrepreneur. The essence of defining this has everything to do with how you spend your time most effectively. If you are more artistic driven, then you will need a team of support around you to handle the business on your behalf. This will mean you are likely going to rely on others to make sure your cash flows are happening. But the trade off is that while you are immersed in your world of creating, you’re paying others out of your income flow to handle the business. If you’re more like a 60/40 split, then that means you’ll have to allocate more time to watching the business side of your career and less time in the studio creating. It’s a very simple formula, but once you’ve been doing your career a while, it is likely an epiphany that could really help you. A great example is if you find yourself more driven as a creative artist split, then you’ll likely want to cozy up to a record label to handle everything else. This seems obvious, but many artists that do this end up regretting the bank balance down the line because the label’s is significantly more than their own. But when you take on the indie artist route so you can keep more of your pot of gold, then you also are the one having to finance everything. So either side has it’s benefits and unfortunate negatives.

4) Develop Your Role As A Politician
As much as you may not like politics, it’s real and not going anywhere. Every business that has any financial upside has politics. It’s naive to take on the attitude that you can avoid it, because either your own team or the people involved in a new opportunity are going to have a myriad of personalities to navigate. I’ve learned the hard way that the words I use in phone conversations, emails, or even texting can help or seriously hinder a relationship. How you interact with industry people, including fellow artists and managers, can seriously impact the path to reaching your goals. It’s a people-centric industry where relationships dictate everything. Knowing how to adjust your expectations and communication role to appeal to the audience you’re in front of (whether on stage or off) can seriously affect your future if you don’t practice flowing with the current that you’re around. There’s a time to go upstream in your career, but that’s usually after you’re well-established and have enough relationships to cash-in on your chosen position.

5) Become A Sprinter
There seems to always be a season of a music journey where the ground beneath you starts to shake and shift. It’s in those times you need to quickly move to solid ground to avoid losing what you’ve built. Usually this involves carefully defining those monuments and stable things around you that aren’t necessarily going anywhere. For Spencer, it has been his faith in God, his family and a few industry peers who have been through the same journey or on the journey with him. Having the ability to quickly rely on those stable places when your career or life are being jolted by circumstances, is essential. A lot of artists become jaded and isolate themselves or burn bridges so much that when troubled times happen, they have nowhere to run. Sometimes the stable people they thought they had, end up not being so stable. Or sometimes they relied too heavily on others to handle their career and when those people are no longer involved, they don’t know what to do. Perhaps the one stable person is you. You are absolutely able to control your own choices even when circumstances may seem that you have no choice. Every choice just has a consequence you have to live with, good or bad. Running quickly to a stable place can often times avoid disaster because you steered clear of certain doom.

6) Beware Of Getting Hooked
While I’m in the midst of a trivial “ocean” metaphor, why not discuss fishing. Most artists, at one time or another, are tempted by amazing lures that many industry related people throw in the water nearby. Some industry types use very attractive bait to gain your attention and it’s very easy to get excited about what is dangling in front of you. First off, the bait has a hook. It always does. As I’ve experienced, you’ll get tempted by bait hundreds of times when you’re starting out. Sometimes it’s logical to take a bite and see what happens. However, the majority of the time you’ll get reeled in… be taken into a place completely out of your environment… and, sadly, get examined for a while and then thrown back in the water. Just like a fisherman, you go to the water with a bucket full of bait and keep fishing until you find the big catch you’re looking for. These industry people are fishing 24/7 and will catch and throw back many artists before they decide to keep a few. As a potential fish, just keep in mind that you should be particular about shiny objects trolling your water and equally be aware that if you decide to put yourself in a new and larger body of water, the bait gets more sophisticated.

While there’s never an immediate knowing of how a decision can impact your career, the longer you’re in the business, the more you learn about how to navigate choices toward hopeful results.

Spencer showed up on the movie set and within 24 hours of hearing the director declare a wrap on the scene and day of filming, Spencer was lying in his bed back at home. The picture of a music career is more of a puzzle being assembled where the shape and quantity of pieces lying in your view over time aren’t always understood at first glance, but as they are assembled, it becomes more obvious how they all interconnect.

Pro Photographer’s Career Guide: Do you have what it takes to cash in with your camera?


This is your go-to guide for becoming a professional photographer. Do it full time, part time, or any time at all. R. Dodge Woodson can explain how it is possible to start working nights and weekends as a pro photographer and grow your efforts into a full-time business. Even if you don’t want to leave your present job you can still make hundreds of dollars on some weekends with your camera and your skills. It is unlikely that you can do it every weekend, but a simple wedding on a Saturday could bring in a few thousand dollars for you. Evening work at the homes of customers can be quite profitable. Get into pet photography. That is a field that is still open to working pros. Most cheap, department-store-type, studios don’t allow pets and people spend a lot of money on their pets. You don’t need a studio or extensive lighting set-ups. Be a location photographer. Work outside. There are plenty of opportunities for anyone who has adequate equipment and the skills needed to take pro-level photos. This is a quick read that cuts to the chase. It will not teach you how to become a photographer, but it will give you a great look at career opportunities and how to achieve them from a man who has 30 years of experience and survival skills as a working pro. If you are a serious photographer who wants to pay for some new equipment or start your own photography business, this is a must-read guide. Even pros will find the evaluations on various types of photography invigorating and informative.

Science Explains How Your Spouse’s Personality Affects Your Career

Who you marry doesn’t affect just your happiness at home — your spouse can also play a major role in your career prosperity, according to new research from Washington University in St. Louis. This study, published in Psychological Science, discovered that it’s not only your personality that matters when it comes to achievement. Your spouse’s personality also affects your workplace success.

The five-year study examined 5,000 married people who ranged in age from 19 to 89. Approximately 75 percent of the sample included homes where both spouses worked. Researchers administered a series of psychological tests to assess participant’s scores in five broad areas of personality — openness, extraversion, agreeableness, neuroticism, and conscientiousness.

They also tracked on-the-job performance of working spouses by using annual surveys designed to measure occupational success. Each worker provided self-reports related to job satisfaction, salary increases, and the likelihood of being promoted.

While other studies have shown it’s helpful to have a spouse who ranks high in agreeableness, this study shows that workers with the most occupational success had spouses who scored high for conscientiousness in the personality assessments. Conscientiousness is characterized by a tendency to be organized and dependable. Conscientious people also show self-discipline, behave dutifully, strive for achievement, and prefer planned activities over spontaneous events.

Three Ways a Conscientious Spouse Contributes to Success

The study showed that a conscientious spouse promoted career success regardless of whether both spouses worked. It also concluded that a conscientious spouse was equally important for both male and female working spouses. The researchers discovered that a conscientious person is likely to support a spouse’s career in three pivotal ways:

1. Completing day-to-day tasks. The conscientious spouse is likely to do household chores, pay bills, shop for groceries, and care for children. This can free up the working spouse to focus on work outside the home.

2. Role modeling healthy skills. The working spouse may pick up on some of those good habits — like behaving diligently and reliably — which can boost career success.

3. Keeping the working spouse’s personal life running smoothly. The conscientious spouse reduces overall stress and promotes a healthy work-life balance which can assist the working spouse in career advancement.

What Can We Learn from the Study?

Spouses who can truly help advance your career go beyond simply encouraging you to ask for that raise or apply for that new job. Instead, career success relies heavily on having a spouse who keeps life outside of work operating smoothly for the long haul.

If you’re not yet married — and you’re ambitious about your career endeavors — a potential mate’s conscientiousness may be worth considering. If you’re already married and you’re concerned that your spouse’s personality isn’t exactly advancing your professional life, don’t run out and get a divorce with the hope of benefiting your career. Most of the research shows the stress of divorce causes decreased productivity for about five years.

Perhaps the most important takeaway from the study is that we should develop an awareness of how our own personalities affect our partners. Simply being aware of the characteristics and behaviors that may help — as well as hinder — one another can go a long way to working together as a team to reach your goals.

Reese Witherspoon Cites New Yorker Article As Low Point In Her Career

The Reese-urgence is alive and well with the much-anticipated release of “Wild” and the probability of an impending Oscar nomination. It’s arguable that Reese Witherspoon never truly lost her status as one of America’s sweethearts, but, she says in a new “60 Minutes” interview, the year after her Oscar win for “Walk the Line” was “tough.”

Throughout the press she has done for her role as Cheryl Strayed, who hiked the Pacific Crest Trail to ameliorate the pain following her mother’s death, Witherspoon has said she wanted to break away from the post-Oscar films that boxed her into nice-girl romantic comedies — movies like “Four Christmases,” “How Do You Know” and “This Means War’. The nadir came when Witherspoon saw herself listed among “washed-up” actors who were no longer seen as box-office draws in a 2012 article from The New Yorker.

“I thought I was reading, like, a profile on another actor,” she recalled. “Then somewhere down at the end, it said […] ‘the people who are washed-up.’ I mean, it really hurt my feelings.” (To be fair, the piece Witherspoon is presumably referring to — a profile of Ben Stiller — never uses the term “washed-up.” Regardless, she was named alongside Keanu Reeves, Mel Gibson, Demi Moore, Tom Hanks, Russell Crowe, Nicolas Cage and John Travolta.)

As she’s said several times, Witherspoon challenged herself to find stronger roles, which led to the creation of her production company, Pacific Standard. With Australian producer Bruna Papandrea, Witherspoon has fought to get powerful female stories on the big screen. First up was “Gone Girl,” which she produced. Then came “Wild,” which she optioned in March 2012, three months before Oprah Winfrey selected it as the inaugural entry in her Book Club 2.0.

“I was just kind of floundering career-wise. I wasn’t making things I was passionate about,” Witherspoon said. “And it was really clear that audiences weren’t responding to anything I was putting out there.”

Audiences are paying attention now: “Wild” has received remarkable praise, and it made a strong mark at the box office when the movie opened in limited release on Dec. 5.

Witherspoon’s full “60 Minutes” interview with Charlie Rose airs Sunday on CBS. Watch an excerpt:

Why Your Career Is Ruining Your Relationship

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent decades honing the skills you need to succeed in business. You’re smart, savvy and good at what you do. Scratch that – you’re fantastic at what you do.

Society applauds you, your mom brags about you, and you’re finally making the money you deserve. You’re proud of what you’ve accomplished and define yourself by the characteristics that help you succeed. The traits that make you valuable in your career give your value in your life. After all, professional success is success in this culture.

Unfortunately what you do for a living can screw you in the romance department.

Here’s why: The skills you use to succeed in your career are the same ones that may block you from loving and being loved.

Take me for example. I help aspiring leaders get clear on their purpose and then develop strategies to bring their visions to life. Sounds harmless enough, but it’s the way I do it that presents the romantic challenge.

The reason I excel as a life strategist is because I empathize deeply with my clients. I take on their hopes, fears, thoughts and feelings and then use this emotional connection to tap into their true desires. Once I feel them, I can remind them who they really are and hold that vision for them until they’re ready to claim it as their own. It’s a beautiful process and my clients love me.

Yet I bring the exact same skill set into my relationship and I’m a delusional codependent.

I meld into my partner and sacrifice my needs for the vision of what the relationship could be. I stubbornly cling to this vision instead of acknowledging what is and shift my bounders to accommodate it. Needless to say, these skillful traits that enhance my career make it hard for me to have a healthy relationship.

If you’re thinking. “OK, but I don’t do that,” let me give you another example that may be more familiar.

I know a guy who gets thing done at work. As a senior manager in a company he helped grow from the ground up, he works tirelessly, takes personal responsibility for the company’s progress, and does everything himself instead of delegating. His take-charge attitude, abilities and dedication to the mission make him a phenomenal corporate leader and he’s well compensated for his efforts.

Translate his business acumen into romance however, and he’s a condescending control freak.

His inability to delegate means he doesn’t know how to communicate his needs or build trust with another person. His lack of faith in others’ capabilities means no one is his equal or capable of being a true partner. Although a huge boost to his business persona, in his love life, his can-do attitude turns into a need to control and a tendency to make decisions based on assumptions rather than dialogue.

But our hard-earned career skills didn’t have to be a death-sentence for the relationship, and they don’t have to be for yours either.

The trick is to think bigger.

Your professional traits aren’t all of you — they are just the characteristics you practice the most often and that receive the most tangible and public feedback. There’s no salary or social prestige for being a good partner, but your ability to climb the corporate ladder is widely visible. In a society that defines your worth based on your professional skills, it’s easy to fall back on your work personality even at social events. How many times have your been introduced by your job title or asked “what do you do?” at a party? Ever been asked what makes you feel happy or loved? I didn’t think so.

If you want to job-proof your relationship, here are four steps you can take today to avoid sacrificing your love life for professional success:

1. Know your work self.

Spend a few minutes right now identifying how you have to think, act, and feel to be the professional powerhouse that you are. What traits set you apart from your colleagues? What are you praised for? What you’re doing when you feel “on” at work? Explore how these characteristics show up in your personal life. Is it in your tone of voice? Your assumptions about how others think and behave?

2. Remember your bigger self.
What other qualities do you have that you don’t bring to work? Maybe you’re a big softie at heart or incredibly generous or affectionate. What does your partner say they love about you?

3. Decide how you want to be.
Feel into how you want to show up in your relationship. Some of your business traits may be helpful and empowering, while others may not have a place in your love life at all. Identify who you want to be, how you want to feel, and how you want to act as a partner capable of loving and being loved.

4. Communicate.

In my experience, there is very little that a conversation can’t cure. No one is perfect and no relationship is perfect. Just like you negotiate in business, sit down with your partner to say what you need, hear out their needs, and decide together how you can help each other feel good. No one is a mind reader, so don’t take it personally if you have to spell out what you want or are asked to do specific things to help your partner feel loved.

With a little self-reflection and a willingness to talk, you can be successful in your career and relationship. There’s nothing better than being appreciated and respected for your professional success by your partner. Use these steps to bring your best to both aspects of your life so you can give yourself and your partner more freedom to love and be loved.

Career Day: The Lessons Children Taught Me

Childhood was a period of purity and wonder. It is where our true character was built and our core values took shape. It was a time where we were free and wrote on our blank slates, way before we were infected and paralyzed by outside expectations or the thoughts others had of us.

As we age, the braveness and boldness of childhood are challenged and tainted to such a deepening degree that it immobilizes some of us today. The greatness and the complex simplicity of the daringness of the innocent ways of our childhood were progressively juxtaposed with the defeating feelings of shame, guilt and self-doubt.

Having no children, I never really gave these notions a compressed thought process until a few a weeks ago. My youngest niece asked me to speak at her school on career day and I said yes, because how hard can it be to speak to kids in kindergarten — eighth grade, right? Wrong.

As a trained therapist and certified coach, I decided to simply lump my career as being a “helping professional.” I focused my talk on my work with seniors and how I was responsible for supervising programs that ensured that hundreds of low income seniors had a hot meal to eat each day, and provided them with health and wellness opportunities that improve their quality of life. I also talked about my writing.

The morning of, on my walk to the school I felt as if was being tossed to the lions. Was I ready for the brutally honest and unfiltered ways of children? Will I hear crickets and see eye rolling instead of the chest puffing caused by the thunderous applause I envisioned after my speech?

“You are a writer?!” yelled one in shock.

“Yes, I just co-authored a book. And I write for different publications.”

“OMG,” mused another, “that is so cool.” Oh, I thought to myself, it is.

How much do you earn? You went to college?! What is a master’s? What’s the best part of your job?

Worst? Seniors exercise?! What’s your passion? What’s your dream job? What celebrities have you interviewed?

My favorite, because it stopped me on my tracks and prompted me to begin finding the lessons of the day, was from a kindergarten.

“Did you…ummm barr…ush your teeff today?”

“Yes,” I smiled, what da… damn, I know I should stop drinking coffee but, “umm why do you ask?”

“Beeee…cauusse my mom says it’s impooooortant.”

In all her splendor, I practiced my patience, because it took her about 30 seconds to utter each syllable. I got it. She was teaching me the lesson that she was taught.

Towards the end, depleted and not sure if my work was as interesting to them as the local TV celebrity to the left and the coloring book-giving, bullet proof vest showing policeman to the right, one beautiful little third grader mumbled to herself “you are a light.”

I looked at her confused. “Excuse me” I said cordially, “can you repeat yourself.”

“You are a light,” she said matter of factly.

“A light? Why do you say that?” I countered, confused.

“Because we are learning in the bible that when you help people, you are a light.”

I felt my soul smile. “Thank you. I never thought of myself as a light before.” This reminded me that at the end of the day we simply want to feel like we matter.

The questions where thought provoking, inspiring, hilarious, amusing and intrusive. But I didn’t mind because I was there to tell my story. After the day was over, I realized that the kids, with their hunger for knowledge and eagerness to understand a period of life that they will be responsible for creating, were the ones that unearthed in me lessons that I learned so long ago and forgot I possess. I offer you to consider being conscious of applying these simple approaches and challenge yourself to create yet a bigger world of possibilities and reclaim your inner child genius.

Be Inquisitive

When we move through life without wonder and queries we enable stagnation and pacification. Like children, ask questions without reservations and trepidation as there is no such thing as a wrong question. Challenge others and particularly yourself to ask the important and tough questions because answers, simply be aware, is what guides our paths in life.

Have Audacity

Be a prisoner of your own confidence. A 3rd grader told me he wanted to be a teacher, oh and a race car driver, oh, and a paleontologist. His audacity to believe that he actually could was infectious, because why couldn’t he? Children live in a space where all and anything is possible. And they are. As children, we lived in that space too and we need to remind ourselves of the possibilities that audaciousness uncovers.

Be Willing Not Able

At times when opportunities present themselves we refuse to engage because we either do or don’t have the ability. Like children who don’t possess much experience, move through life with the willingness to participate as opposed to leaning on your ability to do so. After all that is how we learn, by being willing and open to opportunities for growth.

Laugh More

At each class I spoke, I at 6’4″, looking like a pretzeled jolly giant sat in the teeny tiny chair the youngsters use as well. And almost always the entire class erupted in laughter as they saw me struggle to sit and get up. The halls of the school too were pregnant with laughter. It changed my day’s trajectory and reminded me of the contagious life and mesmerizing light that innocent laughter provides and carries. Be intentional about laughing more, at yourself and others without malice, and simply for the joy of it.

Stay Present

Children do not focus or even understand tomorrow, they are cemented in today and the present and because of it live in a stage of wonder, not anxiety. As such, being past or future driven is counterproductive to the power and gifts that living in the now provides. If you believe that time passes quickly, meditate and be still, you will realize that time is abundant.

Dismiss Perfection

After career day I realized that these kids were not looking to me, or any speaker, as a model of perfection, or for the right answers, but rather for clues, information and inspiration that will help them determine the person they want to become. Curiosity and acknowledging and accepting our imperfections allow us to color outside the lines of our lives and thus opens up one of unimaginable possibilities.

Marianne Williamson said it best. “Children are not children. They are just younger people. We have the same soul at 60 that we had at 40, and the same soul at 25 that we had when we were 5. If anything, children are wiser. They know more than we do, and have at least as much to teach us as we have to teach them.”

Zoot Suit: The Enigmatic Career of an Extreme Style

Zoot Suit: The Enigmatic Career of an Extreme Style


ZOOT SUIT (n.): the ultimate in clothes. The only totally and truly American civilian suit. –Cab Calloway, “The Hepster’s Dictionary,” 1944Before the fashion statements of hippies, punks, or hip-hop, there was the zoot suit, a striking urban look of the World War II era that captivated the imagination. Created by poor African American men and obscure tailors, the “drape shape” was embraced by Mexican American pachucos, working-class youth, entertainers, and swing dancers, yet condemned by the U.S. government as wasteful and unpatriotic in a time of war. The fashion became notorious when it appeared to trigger violence and disorder in Los Angeles in 1943–events forever known as the “zoot suit riot.” In its wake, social scientists, psychiatrists, journalists, and politicians all tried to explain the riddle of the zoot suit, transforming it into a multifaceted symbol: to some, a sign of social deviance and psychological disturbance, to others, a gesture of resistance against racial prejudice and discrimination. As controversy swirled at home, young men in other places–French zazous, South African tsotsi, Trinidadian saga boys, and Russian stiliagi–made the American zoot suit their own.In “Zoot Suit,” historian Kathy Peiss explores this extreme fashion and its mysterious career during World War II and after, as it spread from Harlem across the United States and around the world. She traces the unfolding history of this style and its importance to the youth who adopted it as their uniform, and at the same time considers the way public figures, experts, political activists, and historians have interpreted it. This outre style was a turning point in the way we understand the meaning of clothing as an expression of social conditions and power relations. Zoot Suit offers a new perspective on youth culture and the politics of style, tracing the seam between fashion and social action.
