It's Friday! And this is the day we remind you of all of the important startup news, advice and empowerment you need to close the workweek.

Weekly Round Up (Nov. 16-20): A Mashup of Startup News & Advice For Women - Lioness MagazineDid you miss a day or two of news this week? Did you forget some tips you wanted to implement at your startup? It happens. You’re out there trying to rule the world for crying out loud. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Here’s a mashup up of all of the Startup News & Advice you should know:

Things To Add To Your To-Do List

  1. Read the latest digital edition of Lioness. Iranian-born cover star Anoosheh has an amazing tale of environmentalism and what it means to have opportunity in America.
  2. Get your mind set for success in the new year. Stop procrastinating. Get the tools you need to get to the next level. Dawn and Natasha have putting together “The Lioness Mindset for Success,” just for you.

Things To Meditate On

  1. Every failure is an opportunity for success. We spoke with four female entrepreneurs around the country and asked them one question: What was one failure that turned out to be a blessing in disguise? Read their answers.

What Your Peers Were Doing This Week

  1. We introduced you to Brenna Lyden. At 22 years old she is one of the youngest women to be appointed CEO of a multi-million dollar startup. That’s no small feat.
  2. Chicago entrepreneur Sarah-Eva Marchese is reinventing the flower industry. It’s been dead a while – particularly with Millennials (damn them). Her startup Mott & Spry announced a closed beta test of the first in a long line of products to put personalized floral design at the fingertips of anyone with a computer.
  3. Just Jane’s is a Massachusetts-based natural jam company formerly known as DJ Mix Jams. When the initial partnership dissolved, Co-Founder Jane Janovsky had a decision to make – fold or push forward as a solopreneur.

Last But Not Least (some empowerment)

You have to believe that you were born with all that is required to be the best. All you want is experience, guidance and nurturing in order to bring that woman out of you. She sits inside you dormant like a candle waiting to be touched by a flame. Once you ignite her, she will burn brighter than anything you’ve ever seen. If you protect her, she will carry you through and only extinguish when it is your time to leave this Earth. Go fire her up!
