The grace hopper conference is amazing

Grace Hopper conference is amazing.
Notes from one session.

Don't be afraid to fail. Maria.
The importance of coaches and mentors. Would help with structure.
Write down where want to be and when.

Writing it down helps you to see the next milestone.

If you do a good job and get everything done it will be recognized? NO.
That is not how it works. You need to speak up for yourself.
How to do this. Book by Peggy Klaus. The art of brag: How to toot your own horn without blowing it.

You can get pigeonholed into a role where you are good at what you are doing.
Read Deborah Tannen. The power of talk:
Female communication styles and Male communication styles. the dynamics at work. Read bout this, and get coaching. practice this.

Networking. Do a great job. People will recommend you.

Write your own obituary today. What do you want to do by the end of your life.
How do the pieces fit in that goal. What matters to you. What are you passionate about.
Know yourself. What do you want to do.
