Take time each day to remind yourself of what you do know, acknowledge things you did right, and above all, be kind to yourself as you figure things out. Beating yourself up will only make things worse.
Ask questions to as many people as you can. Understand as well what your industry standards are.
Speak to the appropriate people so that you can continue to make waves and establish yourself so that you’re indispensable, no matter how often you work or how many kids you have.
They need to have similar goals and ambitions or be accomplished the same way you’d like to be.
Find people on the same path and reach out. Have weekly check-ins. I can guarantee that those women are also looking to connect, and the benefits of building this network far outweigh any risk of being outpaced.
