【S】Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

HAPPY SUNDAY!!!! =)))))

First of all, I know I’ve abandoned this blog for too long. It’s been more than a month since either of us wrote.

I guess too much has happened in the past one month, and both of us have been busy with work…but now I finally feel like I have my life back on track, and have so many new and exciting plans (which I shared with Nora on Skype today)! More on this later. 😉

I kind of wish I read this book earlier. It makes so much sense to me and is very inspirational.  I highly highly recommend it, but if you simply don’t have the time, I’d like to share some of my takeaways here.
