Dear women,

Don’t wait for opportunities or promotions. TAKE them. Stop waiting for someone to notice your hard work, skills and abilities.

Don’t ask. Don’t doubt. Find or take opportunities. Better yet, damn well create your own.

In male predominated industries, women often wait for the right time or boss to notice, and move them forward. Not everyone will notice, care or open those doors for you. They may also not know that you’d like to move upward.

So don’t wait. Take and blaze those trails!
