Welcome to #WorkwearWednesdays!

Today we introduce a new feature to the blog - Workwear Wednesdays - because, apparently, this is a thing. People on social media post pictures of themselves in what they're wearing to work, tips on dressing for success, and so on. Since this IS a blog for plus-size professional women, it makes sense that we would participate as well, no? So, here at Curvy CEO, we will post images of suggested work looks every Wednesday. Sound good? Here goes!

Monday Morning Memo – Who Helped You Get Where You Are?

monday-morning-memo NEW None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody - a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns - bent down and helped us pick up our boots. - Thurgood Marshall, U.S. Supreme Court Justice While it can be so tempting to pat ourselves on the back, no matter how hard we've worked and how talented we are, there is always someone who helped us along the way. For me, it was my parents who made a supreme number of sacrifices so I could have a high quality education. I'm wondering - who was that person for you?
