Let me say that what your friend said doesn't bother me on the sexist spectrum.. It's just annoying with all the free schooling that the Good Old US of A throws at us, that some don't partake! I AM the boss (points finger at self). I have a job that most would envy.. Ignorance breeds ignorance, don't buy in. Get an education.. Be the boss. Gender has nothing to do with intelligence/leadership skills.. Oh, and on the personal front, my guy and I take turns being in charge ;)
my girl IS a leader.. also of the 2400 board members that i have worked with approx 20 "got it". even among the so called "successfuls". several of those are women. being able to see from what i call the "good year" blimp perspective or/and to lead people.. is a skill that is not a respecter of gender.
