Joanna Coles leads the charge of what every woman should know about having a successful life. She’s the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, where “fun, fearless and female” are not just a bunch of “F” words strung together, but a way of life.
Coles, who worked as a journalist before joining the magazine world, knows a thing or two about women’s issues. She says, “graduating with large student debt and lack of women in senior positions” are two of the biggest problems plaguing young women today. She advises silencing the voice of your inner critic and arming yourself with the tools to successfully navigate the corporate ladder.
She says, “Its’ very important for you to find your cause and speak up. Don’t be swayed by what other people want you to do, feel what’s in your heart and then speak to it.”
Coles also shares her favorite “F” word with us, but we aren’t going to tell you what it is here. You’ll have to watch the video above to find out. Let’s just say Emma Watson uses it too!
Thank you Joanna Coles for reminding us that “fun, fearless and female” are as Cosmopolitan as ever!
