“Don’t be afraid to negotiate—whether it’s negotiating work hours, pay, your title, or the exact responsibilities. I’ve noticed that women have a harder time negotiating when they get a job offer, compared to men, and I would highly recommend negotiating to get what you want. At the very worst, you get a ‘No,’ but you at least tried!”—Aarthi Ramamurthy, Founder and CEO of Lumoid

“When you’re trying to decide whether a job or career is right for you, ask yourself ‘would I want my boss’s job?’ If the answer is no, take a hard look at the path you’re on.”—Tal Winter and Kate Cutler, Founders ofbkr

“Your life is a balancing act, so it’s important to first figure out what’s most important to you, and then make sure to devote time to it. I encourage everyone to set a Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal (BHAG for short) and take baby steps to accomplish it. I certainly don’t wake up every morning and think about how I’m going to revolutionize everyday work—that’s just too lofty—but I do identify small, actionable steps that can be accomplished every day. I know that by making progress against those smaller, more attainable goals, TaskRabbit will reach our BHAG.”—Leah Busque, Founder and CEO of TaskRabbit

REFUSE TO FEEL GUILTY

“As a new CEO and a new mom, there is a lot to feel guilty about. Am I giving enough to my son? My husband? Or my job at DoSomething.org? So I’ve decided to banish guilt. It’s completely counter-productive. Be present with however you decide to spend your time and that will always be the best answer.”—Aria Finger, CEO ofDoSomething.org
