Ruk Digest 2/21

Hello Fellow Rukkers!

1. Great Advice For Women Treating Other Women

"I recently caught myself giving a pretty girl the cold shoulder because I felt intimidated."

"It’s about being proactive to catch yourself in all those moments where you feel unnecessary pressure to compete with another woman."

2. The Founder Of CustomInk Talks About His Path To Making $300 Million Dollars In Revenue

One of my favorite parts in this article is that:

"starting a business is like playing a video game, like one of the old-school video games where you’ve got to get from one level to the next. And instead of losing your life on a given level, you lose money. You have to get to the next level before you run out of money."

3. A Really Cool Google Chrome Extension

This picture is the kind of stuff you see when you open up a new tab in Chrome. 

DC Upcoming Event

La Grande Fete: A Smithsonian At 8 Production

"Sample food and drink from more than 30 embassies as you explore each nation’s unique attractions and traditions"

Showcasing this a bit early because it will sell out.

Who wants to go? 
Anyone want to be so kind as to buy me a ticket? =)
