Forbes
The latest trend in women's leadership circles today is telling women they can't have it all (at the same time), and they should stop trying. So many top female political and corporate leaders in a wide range of industries and arenas have been quoted in the past few years as saying "You can't have it all — it's a pipe dream."

6 tips for increasing word-of-mouth referrals
Fox Business
Especially when starting out, word-of-mouth referrals are the most effective way to grow your business.

Yet, if you are like most businesses, you spread your attention across 100 percent of your accounts while you scramble to acquire even more. How many customers do you have that purchase little from you, and yet are demanding in terms of the support and attention they require? At the other extreme are those customers that do purchase a lot from you, but they exploit you. And then there's the right-fit customer.

The New Republic
It would be fair to assume that we're making steady, if slow, progress in equalizing pay between men and women as women become better educated and make inroads into the workforce. The gap did in fact narrow at a quick clip between the 1960s and 1990s and then kept shrinking — by 9.7 percentage points in the 1990s and by 3.1 points in the 2000s.

Betting on women CEOs: A smart financial move?
Inc.
It has been more than three years since the rumblings began from women on Wall Street: They wanted to find a way to create investment vehicles that would put money to work in companies led by women or that had an above average number of women on their boards.
