 October roundup
Inspiring Quotes

Rather than listing some inspiring quotes, I wanted to share this lovely quote that a friend left on the blog:

‘Love this and love all you ladies, your optimism and enthusiasm is infectious. It’s great to read (and see) what can be achieved with hard work, inner belief and amazing support even if sometimes it seems a massive juggle’

How To Become A Better Version Of You

We asked you to stop selling yourself short and to stop self-deprecating.  Own your achievements, stand tall. 💖

Nurture Your Network.  Networking can be scary but it’s really important that you do it.  There’s a hidden job market out there filled with people who network.  Get talking. 💖

Stop.  Pause.  Re-Boot.  Often, life takes over and we forget about ourselves.  Take some time this week to do something for yourself.  💖

Awesome Interviews

Loving our interviews this month.

Interview with Author and Illustrator, Kate Pankhurst.  Kate talks about her work, her career, her confidence and how she feels about her surname.

2 amazing ladies who have set up in business together discuss determination and self-belief.  Meet Suzie Thomas, Co-Founder of Go Revolution and Sophie Bickerdike, Founder of Go Yoga and Co-Founder of Go Revolution.

October round 3Career Tips

When we talk about branding, we often think about a company’s brand rather than our own brand.  Alice Katwan, Senior Vice President of Sales, North America, Genesys, shares her tips on building a strong, personal brand.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, Head of Group Employee and External Digital Engagement at Sky, talks how to change career and still thrive.  Anna started off at Thames Valley Police in the Crime Incident Management Unit.

Roxanne Hobbs at The Hobbs Consultancy discusses how we can be our authentic selves at work (and still kick ass!)

Mind, Body, Well-Being

Zoë Whitby of ZW Coaching asks whether our negative self-talk is wrecking our confidence and gives us great, practical advice on what to do about it.

How often have you had that feeling of being completely overwhelmed and stressed?  Sarah Wall shares her tips on how to get balance back when your mind is chaotic.

How many of us are people-pleasers?  Put your hand up!  Lisa Rogoff talks how to stop pleasing everyone and live your life!

Exercise, well-being and nutrition are so important to us and often we forget to look after ourselves.  If you’re a writer/blogger in these areas, we’d love to work with you – email me at

I'm Lou, founder of Woman Ready. I started this blog as I realised lack of confidence had affected so many areas of my life over the years. I want to feel bolder, more inspired, more empowered, more self-assured - and I want other women to feel the same.
