Woman Up! Overcome the 7 Deadly Sins that Sabotage Your Success
Do you have the Kindness conundrum? or the Affirmation addiction?
Author Aimee Cohen gave a lively and humorous presentation about what she terms as the “7 Deadly Sins.” I spoke with one voice in the crowd who had a few great takeaways from the event that was held on October 28th at the Glen Sanders Mansion.
See if you agree with Ariana.

“I would say that on any given day I can relate to the struggles that Aimee talked about in her presentation. I continuously, and consciously, need to remind myself to be the woman that doesn’t say, “I’m sorry” for circumstances I absolutely do not need to apologize for or let negative criticism be the only thing I hear about myself. I actually went back to work after the presentation and made sure I said, “thank you” to every compliment given to me instead of coming up with explanations as to why I received the compliment or passing the credit to somebody else. At the end of the work day, I felt like I had accomplished way more than if I had brushed off my own successes. I also started a brag book in the form of a blog, as Aimee suggested doing. Aside from keeping track of my successes, I think that this will eventually end up being a great way for me to blow off steam and take a step back and actually see the great things that I have accomplished!
As a young professional, it was inspiring to hear what Aimee had gone through early in her career as well. It gives me hope and also inspires me to find something that I truly have a passion for. I couldn’t thank her enough for her wise words!”
