2. If you're an avid reader of R29's Money Diaries, don't miss their roundup of the best books for $$$ advice (and hold tight for more info in this vein in the Q2 Syllabus of the Class of 2018).
3. Let iconic artist Barbara Kruger rock your entire world with her interview on No Filter - a special podcast series from The Cut and WNYC that explores the many ways of operating as a woman online.
4. Shout out to The Guardian Weekend for quoting us in The Measure last weekend! (Find this tip - and many more - in The Working Woman's Handbook).
5. Patty McCord reinvented the culture at Netflix at the dot-com bubble burst, laying off 1/3 of the staff. Listen to her explain hard work alone says nothing about how valuable you are as an employee.
