Stop waiting on your life to begin! Episode 34 of Organize Your Butterflies focuses on how women can excel in shaping their futures now rather than later. Host Alejandra Y. Castillo is joined by Cecilia Muñoz, the VP of Public Interest Technology and Local Initiatives at New America and the Author of the forthcoming book, “More than Ready: Be Strong and Be You…and other lessons for women of color on the rise.” They discuss how women of color often are not perceived as “ready” in the eyes of mainstream America, and how this misconception often leads to compensating by working really hard, as well as other strategies to cope with internal self-doubt. Join them as they gear up for the excellent moment of now! For more insight and how to purchase “More than Ready”, follow Cecilia on Twitter @cecmunoz.
