    Women are totally owning the spotlight. Since the first Women’s March in 2017, people have been speaking up more and more about the injustices and inequality women face on a daily basis. With the help of social media, pussy hats, and numerous bills being introduced to protect women's rights and close the gender wage gap, people are actually listening. It's the perfect time to own your power and make some serious moves to show the world how badass you are. 

    At the BUST School for Creative Living, we hand selected four empowering classes taught by incredible teachers from the Engaging Educator, an organization that uses improv to teach people how to be more confident and take initiative, and founder of The Finishing School, Alison Taffel Rabinowitz, who developed an educational consulting company that focuses on what we need to survive and thrive in the modern workforce by disrupting decades of behavior that have held women back.

    sorry not sorry ebd19

    We've all said "sorry" at times when we really shouldn't have. "Sorry" as a way to get the gross manspreading dude to stop taking up three seats, "sorry" as a way to begin your turn to speak in a conversation, "sorry" when you're asking a question.  We've all done it, but enough is enough. #SorryNotSorry: How over-apologizing can make you really sorry in your career teaches you how to stop over-apologizing and start being confident in your ideas and the space you take up, as well as recognize times when you may instinctively apologize so you can correct that behavior.
