Look for Information Everywhere

Last night I plowed through my pile of wine industry magazines. This morning I woke up a bit early, and thought, I'll read some fun magazines. Reading through the May 2010 issue of Vogue I was enjoying the fashion, current events, socialite news, etc. Then I read about the COO of Facebook. It was quite an interesting article about Sheryl Sandberg, and chronicled her career path and explained how she has been so successful. Prior to Facebook, Sheryl was involved in turning Google profitable, bringing in revenues instead of being a free portal for information.

I have noted here my recent Women for Winesense presentation, and one of the points I stressed was the need for people to get information, learn new things, and be aware. While I was just skimming through a fashion mag, I came upon a great article about a female executive that was very interesting and informative. Learning about Sheryl Sandberg's knack for personal interactions was enlightening and thought provoking. What are you good at, how can you use that talent to excel, and how can learn more about it? Look for information everywhere.

And the piece on Sarah Jessica Parker was very good too!
