Rachel Simmons met me to talk about her research on female development and confidence. She just came out with a new book on the subject so we talked about that, about the pains of doing press, and she craps all over my water bottle. Rachel was my friend in high school and she’s continued to be one of the most interesting people in my life.


This is Rachel’s third book on the subject of female development and it was a great excuse to catch up with her. Buy her book wherever you buy books or at Amazon.
