00:37:23 Stephanie Hughes: @Ellen – have you tried small companies? one advantage of a small company, based on you mentioning enjoying doing lots of different things, any role tends to have you “wearing many hats”.

00:38:13 Krystle Reniguntala: I just started that one too! It’s written by a professor from my alma mater.
00:38:29 Kristin Chasky: I suggest reading Essentialism if you have a lot of passions and feel like you’re always multitasking and doing a million things. It helped me greatly!

00:53:07 Kelley Jabr (she/her): The Power of a Positive No is a great book, Jennifer — for advocating for yourself!
00:53:37 Jennifer Janes: Thank you. I’ll check it out.
00:53:39 Kristin Chasky: Definitely resonate with learning to advocate for yourself- Belma some resources or a group call would be great! I’ll go to bat for anyone as well but when it comes to myself I tend to put everyone else first.
00:54:08 Kristin Chasky: Thanks Kelley – I’m going to download that book now too!
00:54:54 Hala-Mary Hazar: Agree with @Jennifer – start ups have done just that in my experience.
