Whether you’re starting a new business venture or making sense of life as a new mum, make sure you remember you’re not alone! Be that by building a team of colleagues, finding a mentor or connecting with like-minded women, surround yourself with a support network and value the importance of community.

The biggest piece of advice I would give to women, particularly those that are still trying to find their identity, is be true to yourself. Be honest to yourself and about yourself – and be kind. With these qualities you can hopefully remain generous and open always, regardless of obstacles and pressures around you.
Mary Greenwell, make-up artist
I think women actually can have it all. It might not be perfect, it might be a juggle, it might be chaotic, it might be stressful, and sometimes it might all break. But career satisfaction and the rewards of motherhood are achievable – as long as you’re prepared to work hard.

I think my one piece of advice for women in 2019 has to be 'You Do You'. I feel as though the comparison monster has stolen a lot of joy from so many of my female peers and the thing is we're all on our own path. Someone else's success is not at the detriment to your own. This mindset enable us to elevate each other and clap when one of us wins - it's like one of my fave sayings - a flower doesn't pay any mind to the flowers around it, it just blooms.
