‘Tis the last Sunday of the year, and also our last media pow-wow of this year! Although our blog at The Corporate Sister is fairly new, our Sunday media pow-wows have been a longstanding tradition that we still enjoy so much, except that now we have the privilege to put it on paper and share it with you our readers. So in our Sunday tradition, here is the 411 on what were reading this week:
- Black Enterprise is sharing with us 12 hot and high-paying jobs to look forward to in 2014, and is also offering up a list of the best jobs for the social medial fanatics among us;
- Essence features celebrity trainer Dolvett Quince and his seven steps to a New You this New year;
- Huffington Post Black Voices’ Sophia Nelson shares with us the 5 things Black women must do in 2014 to lead happier and healthier lives (a must-read);
- Huffington Post Women offers THE 24 pieces that should be required reading for women in 2013 (and you want to read every single one of these recommendations); one of these pieces published on The Feminist Wire back in October is my personal favorite by acclaimed author bell hooks on the Lean In movement and how we need to Dig Deep: Beyond Lean In;
- Forbes Woman teaches us how to say No to the boss without really saying no , and also helps us understand how our fathers affect our careers (and believe me, you will call your father after reading this);
- The Daily Muse tips us off on how to look at our strengths and weaknesses in a whole new way, and also helps us start the new year on a new footing by identifying 3 signs that we should quit our jobs;
