The other day, as I was about to type in a really long memorized number, I said to my math loving 6 year old daughter, “watch this.” I proceeded to type out the number as asked: “Do you know how I can do this? because I’m good at math, just like you, it runs in the family.” I know from personal experience, sometimes all it takes is for one person to tell you that you are good at something. Women, now more than ever, need to remember this. Let’s tell each other how great we are. Let’s recognize each other’s accomplishments and celebrate them! Thanks for this article.
