Leadership Books for Women

Book lists By January 12, 2023 Last Updated on January 19, 2023 by Olivia Smith Tags: , , , , No Comments

In life and in business, leadership proves easy to see and feel, though a slippery thing to define. It’s also difficult to teach, though many in the business and coaching worlds assert it’s a skill like any other, one to learn and develop.

In a world that still has at least a few glass ceilings intact, learning and teaching leadership in ways that might look a little different from the typical office model retains the power to supercharge careers and change lives.

The 10 Best Psychological Thriller Books to Read in 2023

Book lists By December 16, 2022 Last Updated on December 21, 2022 by Olivia Smith Tags: , No Comments

Replete with addictive, twisty plots, unreliable narrators, and the exquisite tension of inter generational strife, or the peculiar second hand-anxiety of fictional gaslighting and domestic terror: a good thriller provides the chills and spills of a rollercoaster.

Thinking about investing and not sure where to start? One key principle you’ll come across on your journey to independent trading: is technical analysis. This perhaps opaque term has a highly specific definition in the finance world: ‘…a methodology for analyzing and forecasting the direction of prices through the study of past market data’.

It’s a subject rich with its own language and terminology, which can exclude outsiders but can be deciphered, according to the many guides out there, with the right help, the right attitude, and perseverance.
