Ya, Cynthia, don’t be bossy!  J 


Richard, I generally think the personal attacks on this list degrade the conversation and are beneath the professionalism and intelligence of the subscribers (not to mention how they likely discourage many people from participating), but given how perfectly you illustrated the point from my first email with your pithy response below, I can only imagine it was done as the pinnacle of ironic wit.  Kudos.

Mr Burton, it's helpful when addressing one and only one member of this huge list to actually address them by name.


Or ideally to not be quite so caustic, but that's your call obvs.

Sexism seems to be a hot topic today: Maria Bartiromo on CNBC’s Closing Bell today cites the book “Lean In” as ‘getting a lot of attention’ – CNBC must read this list to get a pulse! Topic: Successful Women vs. Men – watch at this link, the discussion happened 30 minutes ago:

My advice to women who are in similar situations is to do as Marissa Mayer has done, be unapologetic, unwavering, and decisive.”

Richard, don't worry, it's not you, it's everyone else. Slam down a few Red Bulls and get back to work.

Catharine, who the hell said they are poor leaders? Please re-read what I said and in the case you're too lazy, specifically read the example I gave with sports. Because you're athletic doesn't mean you'll want to play sports.


If you want to burn your bra in the sink, go for it. If you have some emotional issues about this topic, deal with them and don't project your hate on to me because you failed to read my email.


Like someone mentioned, these are opinions. Agree/disagree/ in the middle great, but if you're going to pretend that you know the answer, you're just fooling yourself.


Keep studying the topic while others raise to the ranks by applying themselves.
