Finding Inner Wisdom

Talking with Teen Vogue

By January 9, 2018 One Comment


Good morning!

I’m writing today with a few updates …

This month I’m proud to be featured in a Teen Vogue article on mentorship. In the piece, I shared some of my most passionately held beliefs about mentorship, one of them being that we’ve put far too much emphasis on telling women to look outward for answers, and not enough emphasis on encouraging them to tune into their own inner guidance.

In the article, I also got to speak to the idea of the “inner mentor” – that older, wiser you that you can find within and consult for direction and guidance, a concept which many of you know from the Playing Big book. I’m so happy see this idea make it into the mainstream in this way. Special thanks to journalist, Jessica Matlin, for bringing it to this audience.

    Hi Tara,

    My daughter and I absolutely loved Teen Vogue — it was one of her favorite, if not only, magazine. We recently learned that Teen Vogue will no longer be a print magazine. This news was so disappointing for my daughter since there really is nothing else comparable to Teen Vogue.

    I was wondering if you know of any other publications that are trying to help teenagers deal with the political and social changes we are seeing in the world?

    Thank you!
