Reshma Saujani's book, "Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, and Live Bolder" is the much needed antidote to the perfectionism curse with which so many women struggle. The founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, Saujani candidly shares her own failure stories and how she borrowed a page from Beyonce's playbook - making lemonade from life's lemons.
She dissects the many reasons girls and women find themselves compelled to perfection, promptly tells us to go ahead and knock it off already (can we get an "AMEN!"), and then provides strategies for taking the leap toward bravery...and yes, embrace failure.
May we all feel the courage to take risks - and empower our next generation of women leaders to do the same!
