Work Like A Writer / Hustle Like A Woman

We women are finding new and creative ways to attain professional success on our own terms This could be in direct response to a work climate that historically hasn’t done well to respond to the strengths and needs of women in the workplace. Rather than accept the status quo, some women are finding ways to break barriers and shatter ceilings from within. Others are braving their own paths, and some still, have found a way to do a combination of the two.

Work Like A Midwife / Care Like A Woman

I’m driving to a restaurant by myself. I’m wearing makeup and my hair is washed, blow dried and brushed. I’m meeting with someone for an interview, so in some ways, this could be considered a work outing. But, as a new mother to an eight-month-old little boy, really, it’s just what the doctor ordered. Or, should I say, what the midwife ordered? This treat is made possible by none other than my own midwife, who I’m featuring this week for our second issue: Work Like A Woman.

Work Like A Teacher / Educate Like A Woman

Teacher Appreciation Week is an opportunity to #ThankATeacher for their impact, which, as many of us can attest, doesn’t always have to do with academics. Maybe you had a teacher like this. Someone who was more of a mentor, or a pseudo-parent, cheerleader, coach, and friend all in one. A support system during a difficult time, or the person who steered you in the right direction when you went off course. It’s also likely that this very important teacher in your life was a woman.

Work Like An Entrepreneur / Lavish Like A Woman

I’ve begun writing this article about women in the workplace on an unusual day, having just this morning turned in my letter of resignation. I am 28 years old and have worked as an archivist and technical writer for the Department of Defense for the last four years. Don’t ask me how I got into this. Having accepted the position only months after finishing my Master of Fine Arts in Poetry my answer remains, I have no idea.

Work Like A Paralegal / Investigate Like A Woman

This week's feature focuses on a woman who found her strength because others believed in her, pushed her, and cheered for her. They didn’t let her forget to keep moving toward that childhood dream. These people did not have ulterior motives or serve to gain from her success. But, make no mistake...it still takes a certain level of grit to get to the destination. That can only come from within. This woman has that and more.

Work Like A Realtor / Broker Like A Woman

We’ve all heard about “the housing crisis” and about the rising cost of homes in our country. Sometimes this news can make homeownership feel like more of a lofty dream than an achievable reality. You know another idiom about homes? A woman’s place is in the home. Today, we’re shining a spotlight on a woman who has found her place, and while it does have to do with homes, she’s instead bringing homes to other people.

Work Like A Naturopath / Heal Like A Woman

It was Hippocrates, often referred to as the father of medicine in our Western world, who said, “The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” After having the opportunity to talk to a naturopathic doctor about her role in helping others, you can't help but feel that naturopaths are playing a vital role in actualizing Hippocrates’ words for our modern time.

Work Like A Woman: Editorial

Competition is a form of motivation. It drives us to achieve. In many circumstances, and in many examples we encounter in our world, competition is a positive signifier for accomplished men, especially in sports. When I think of how competitive women are portrayed, I think about the movie Bride Wars or The Devil Wears Prada (I think Anne Hathaway is to blame for some of this now that I think of it).
