The Power in the Ask Written by Tawana Bain It’s almost cliche to say, but it’s true and bears repeating: Nobody builds anything great all alone. Watching the Most Admired Woman Awards, I saw woman after woman take their time to give thanks to the people who helped them get to where they are. And not just for the nominations and votes that ultimately won these awards for them, but for everything. Work, life, and the places they intersect, we always need support to do the big work. Getting that kind of assistance often starts [...]

Those Tricky Words — ‘Best Friend’ Written by Tawana Bain When we’re kids, there’s nothing of greater magnitude than being best friends with someone. Your world is so small as a child, and a best friend makes it feel a little bigger. Looking back on those days, it’s a kaleidoscope of emotions for us. There’s having fun together and learning to share, and all the times you get to have pure, new experiences. But what about the challenges, the doubt, and the times the road gets bumpy? What if the person you thought was your [...]

Power is a Delicate Thing Written by Tawana Bain I struggle to understand how to quantify power. Why some are so hungry for it. Why some abuse it. And why some don’t even realize they have it. I’ve found in life that the quickest way to see what a person is all about is to see what they do with a bit of power when they get it. Does it go to their head? Do they forsake long-held values in pursuit of maintaining it? We often think that power can eclipse insecurity, but really, I [...]

On the Road Together Written by Tawana Bain This year is in full swing, and I hope that 2023 is treating you right, even though, for me, it came barreling in as though I had stolen its best friend. I came into the year battling a virus, technical glitches, and a newly chipped front tooth! I have to admit that I initially took all of it as a bad omen that this might not be my year. But after reflecting, I now see how the virus made me reprioritize my health, the chipped tooth resulted [...]

Let It Go, Sis Written by Tawana Bain | Photo by Dick Arnspiger Is it a cliche to say that a new year should bring a new beginning? Maybe so, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Studies have shown that 91% of new year’s resolutions don’t stick, but if everyone in America made one, that would still be over 301 million that did work. And not just work, but work out, lose weight, save money, quit smoking, and spend more time with family since those are the top resolutions.  And if those statistics [...]

Hold Space for Her Written by Tawana Bain | Photo by Tawana Bain Recently I was presented with the opportunity to support a dear friend who was being recognized for her outstanding leadership and noteworthy accomplishments. As I looked around the stunning event space and at all the beautiful people in attendance, the highlight for me was her, and the overwhelming joy it gave me to see her celebrated and honored for the amazing woman she is.    While only a select few were invited, I was caught off guard by some dismissive energy. Some [...]
