Every four years we have the opportunity as a country to talk about big issues and make decisions about the leadership of our country. In those conversations, regardless of the side, “think of the children” rhetoric is often invoked, enabling people to justify their beliefs and their choices as being for the benefit of others.
Girls With Ideas had an awesome Week 5 in the Iowa Startup Accelerator. We have been working hard, working non-stop, and working on things that we truly are passionate about. Work is so much fun when you feel like you are building something that add values to this world. That doesn't mean that this week was easy, in fact it was hard. But's it's important to us to recognize and communicate to other girls that just because something is hard doesn't mean it is negative experience — actually the opposite is often true. We find that when you are able to do something that is difficult you feel ah-maz-ing about yourself and afterwards, you become more confident!
