In honor of Women’s History Month, today we begin a new four-part series called “Advice from a Woman.” In each episode, Heather will speak to a different thought leader to get her best advice on how to keep growing, praying, and choosing God in our everyday faith journeys.

On today’s show Heather sits down with Jenn Schultz, the author of She’s Not Your Enemy. Jenn says we lose something when, by default, we view other women as our competition. She walks us through strategies that will empower us to move beyond feelings of jealousy, insecurity, and self-protection. Her insights will help us reject unhealthy habits of comparison, as we pursue cultures of community and cooperation.

Social Toolkit: Just Like That
But first… Did you know that while 84 percent of all social media influencers are women, they are still making up to 30 percent less per post than men do, even when they have similar audience size and engagement rates? On today’s Social Toolkit, Heather puts on her communication professor hat and shares with you a tool to help you with negotiation. It’s called the power of likability.
