Hillary Clinton’s Career Advice: Toughen Up, Ladies

Hill's Advice

"Grow Skin Like A Rhinoceros"

Your career plans might not include New York Senator or Secretary Of State. Even so, surely you can’t deny that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knows a thing or two about successful careers. Speaking this week at New York University about her new Clinton Foundation project, “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project,” Ms. Clinton dished out career advice worth listening to. “One of the best pieces of advice that I ever heard from anyone was Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1920s who said that women in politics or in public roles should grow skin like a rhinoceros. I think there’s some truth to that,” she said. “It’s important to learn how to take criticism seriously, but not personally. And to do that, you have to be willing to hear what others, who are your critics, are saying and to evaluate where they’re coming from.” It’s sexist and annoying that women need to be this way  more than men (and mothers in politics and public life especially), but I don’t doubt that Clinton, who has an admirable rhinoceros hide herself, is correct.

Mary Barra, GM’s first female CEO, is set to be paid half of what Dan Akerson, her male predecessor, made. Yes, half.

Barra will earn $4.4 million as opposed to Akerson’s 2012 earnings of $9.1 million (which comprised $1.7 million in salary and $7.3 million in stock awards). As a senior advisor, Akerson is now entitled to $4.68 million, which is still more than Barra is earning as CEO. With numbers this big being thrown around, the glaring question is whether anyone needs to be making millions of dollars each year. Of course not. I don’t think CEOs ever need to be making seven figures, but when the only reason one millionaire is making less than another millionaire is their gender, we have a different issue on our hands than the rich getting richer.

This Real Life Interpretation Of A Conference Call Is Hilariously, Awkwardly Accurate

BEEEEP ... "We Lost Tyler Again"

Anybody who’s ever been on a conference call knows that a few things are always to be expected:

  1. Awkward conversation between the first two participants until others join.
  2. Two people starting to speak at once, both insisting the other continue.
  3. One person who keeps getting disconnected, and *beep* “It’s me again, sorry about that.” And so on…

Well, YouTube geniuses Tripp and Tyler have turned all of the awkward interactions on a conference call into a reality that’s so accurate and hilarious, it makes me want to call a meeting with our LA team just to see who I would “be” in this scenario. Watch the video above and then share this with every person you know. Maybe you should announce it via conference call … just a thought.
