6 Must Watch TED Talks for Women
I love TED Talks and I have been watching them for years. They are inspirational, educational, fun, heart-warming, heart-breaking, motivational, I could go on and on! Being in business is hard, being a woman in business can be even harder. There are so many empowering women who have paved the way for the rest of us. Women who are out there fighting the good fight and making a difference. Below are 6 of my favourite TED Talks by women. In business and in life these women are influencers. Watch them for motivation, inspiration, and just because. I really hope you enjoy them and get as much out of them as I do.
