Why don’t we ask for help?
Women of color are usually the last group to ask for it. Many times we think we should solve our own problems. Coming from families where independence and self- reliance is valued, most of us have been taught to be responsible for ourselves.
In the world of business, names are everything. Decisions involving jobs, promotions, demotions, salaries, perks, development, etc. are made based on names. So what names are people calling you? Are you called a people-person or a “B” on wheels, a friend or backstabber, a pushover or powerful, innovative or stuck in your ways, frumpy or professional. If you don’t know, you could be in for a rude awakening.
