Women’s Wisdom – Know Your Brain

How well do you know your brain? For a long time, women have been treated anatomically in the same way as men, with the obvious exception of our reproductive organs.  But since the 1990’s, research has started to show that women are fundamentally different in ways that really matter.  For example, the part that deals … Continue reading Women’s Wisdom – Know Your Brain

Women’s Wisdom – Who You Are is Enough

Do you ever feel like nothing you do is ever good enough? And that even good enough isn’t enough for some people? There’s always someone ready to point out a mistake.  A dig. A poke.
