Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we think Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.
  • A new study in the Journal of Management Studies suggests that politically savvy professionals who use "sucking up" as a career aid may also be able to avoid psychological distress. Aka if you are cunning and crafty, you will less likely be picked on. So basically I have to be a Mean Girl to climb the corporate ladder? Sounds 'bout right. [Science Daily]
  • Need another reason to work from home? Research shows that couples in which one partner commutes more than 45 minutes to get to work are 40% more likely to divorce than couples who don't have to travel for their jobs. The study also suggests that commuting affects your overall well-being leading to obesity, stress and loneliness. Blech. [Self]
  • Daily Candy is running their annual "Start Small, Go Big" Contest that aims to help small businesses get off the ground. A winner from each category (fashion, beauty, food & drink, and home) will win a trip to NYC, a Daily Candy write-up and a day at the Daily Candy Academy where they will learn from the likes of Isaac Mizrahi & Rebecca Minkoff. Entries need to be submitted by August 5th. So get cracking! [Daily Candy]

Commuting can definitely be stressful and tiring. I have to commute every day for work and school, and it makes me wish that I could just get all my work done at home. Or at the very least I wish I had a car, because then I wouldn't have to worry about people trying to hit on me/convert me/yell at me for no reason on the buses and trains.

I make $20 for completing a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what large companies are paying me for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So big companies pay millions of dollars every month to the average person. In return, the average person, like myself, fills out surveys and gives them their opinion.
