Hi! Today I have two fun announcements:
First, I am completely honored, excited and thrilled to have SP&A featured in Forbes this week. You can read the great piece, by Celia Shatzman, here.
Second, thanks to the great response to the first class I taught at General Assembly (which sold out with a wait list) I am excited to be running the same class again in November. You can see all the details here – would love to see you there!
And finally, thank you so much for supporting SP&A. None of these opportunities would have happened without the support of this site’s amazing readers. I know I have the very best readers on the Internet – thank you more than I could say.

How to be Prettier: I am always looking for easy ways to remind myself to sit up straighter, and I love this idea: “A buddy and I agreed to send each other Gchats sporadically throughout the day that said nothing but ‘UNHUNCH!’ It works! For a little while, anyway.” — Great tip from this article with lots more research on the benefits of sitting up straight.
