When Minted Magazine, an online publication that empowers women in their lives and careers, asked to do a Q&A feature with Braid, we said, “bring on the empowerment, Minted!”
So Kathleen and I got to share our take on some of the unknowns facing
other entrepreneurial women just starting out – like dealing with
unexpected scariness (it’s not always what you think it’s going to be)

We can share advice like that all day, so consider us minted! And we certainly don’t mind sharing the company of other connection-minded women like Molly Cain, the CEO and co-founder of Glass Heel, an online community for professional women. Molly is going to be featured on the cover of the Minted Spring Issue coming out March 12th.
Great quote and Glass Heel is a cool name. A little bird (okay it’s Kimberly Lin the co-founder/publisher of Minted) tells us that Minted and Glass Heel are partnering up to host a women's small business conference this October in Austin, TX. We’re hoping we can be part of the event, as well.
“The challenge is being brave enough to take on the scary things that matter, to stop doing the things that aren’t strategic. The last thing you want is to be trapped on a treadmill of your own making.”

While I like to think reporters are following my every word to keep their finger on the pulse of what lifestyle bloggers have to say about any given topic, I think maybe in actuality the BBC reporter probably just Googled something like “AND WHAT ABOUT HEALTH INSURANCE?” and landed on my post about starting a new business with Tara in the middle of an alleged economic crisis.

Have you ever made any brave leaps when the conditions are seemingly against you? Let’s commiserate in the comments.
