As we kick off 2018, you’re likely searching for inspiration and motivation to begin the year on a productive high note.

At Her Agenda, we deeply believe in the notion that you can’t be what you can’t see. Week after week, every Monday we publish an in-depth interview with a woman in a position of power called “A Peek Inside Her Agenda” within our Power Agenda series.  The women range in terms of the industry they work in, from education to entrepreneurship to corporate. Through their own words, we’ve had the honor of shining a light on women leaders with career paths that will inspire a generation of women leaders.

We’ve proudly published 166 Power Agenda’s since we launched Her Agenda. Here we reflect on the top nine pieces of advice to guide you in 2018.
