Why You Need a Mutual Admiration Society

May 29, 2019

Create a Mutual Admiration Society (MAS) with a group of friends. This should be a network of women—or even just one or two women—who you can reach out to when you are celebrating, when you need a pep talk, or when you need an outside perspective. These are friends who can give you an unbiased, clear, and honest response to your concerns and help you check your behavior…
