In this episode of Girlboss Radio, Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani joins host Sophia Amoruso (famed self-made businesswoman and founder of Nasty Gal) in giving you an inside ear into the hard-hitting realities of pursuing your career.
Saujani points out the downright, cultural difference between how boys and girls are raised and how they are taught to approach failure and opportunities. In this fascinating topic, they talk about how men are encouraged to take risks as opposed to women who are taught to make a career with what they're good at, stick to it, and to just strive to perfect it.
As people living in a success-driven culture, it is very comforting to hear that failure is not something to be afraid of. Instead of focusing on achieving perfection, the duo talks about having a mindset where you approach life and career with bravery.
