INTEGRITY : the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. -- A little end-of-year self check-in for us all : Are we continuing to act in integrity as we build our businesses? Are there ways in which we can step into a more moral version of ourselves? Are we communicating honestly? Do we stick to our word, every single time? Do we treat our employees and collaborators as we want to be treated? -- When people use the term uplevel, they're usually referring to making more income. But what if we applied the same idea to our moral center... Is there a way we can uplevel there? (Photograph by: @stinayulia)

Sink, go deep this weekend. Study things you've been wanting to know more about. Sit in quiet and listen to your own inner voice. Shed any feelings of "ought to" and chase after the want tos. Place your ear on your lover's chest before they wake and listen to their heart thump. Hold gratitude for that thumping. Ask yourself how you want to use your gifts to help the world. Call your mama, if you can. Pretend the slate for next year was wiped clean; if you were responsible for nothing, what would you choose to write back in? What would you choose all over again?

Thanks to our Fireside Chat with these two last night, I spent the afternoon trying to decide whether I am a 7 or a 1 (#enneagram) and buying a Movie Pass (did you know you can get a pass to see unlimited films at the theater for $10/month?!) Thank you, Anne and Caroline, for sharing your stories with us, and not being afraid to share the sharp, pointy bits alongside the shiny bits. And to @marisavitalephoto, my cohost and FsC partner in crime. Only one more chat this year! 11/12 with @sonjarasula at @theuniquespace. Tickets will go on sale later this week. ✨#bossladiesfiresidechat photographs : @marisavitalephoto

Saturday thoughts: I prefer to be the quieter one in a group. I prefer to listen, to learn, to not take up too much space. (I do realize this is problematic.) I prefer to observe, to consider, to write about it all later. I've always thought filling space was a matter of ego. But lately I realize how much I learn from others when they take the time to share their stories and perspective with me. It's a kind of gift, really. So I've been trying to reframe it for myself -- to see sharing as an act of generosity, not an act of ego. Because all good things stem from intimacy and connection. #october7 (photograph : @unconditionalmagazine)

On Wednesday evening we sat down with some of our favorite women for an autumn dinner party and virtual panel in partnership with @campfire.fm. We laughed a lot (did you know @thecartorialist is hysterical?!), enjoyed a delicious meal by @thymecafeandmarket, and got to know each other even better through our answers to questions on the Campfire app. You can download Campfire and listen in to all of the panel at get.campfire.fm. ❤️ #bossladiespanel ( Photography : @marisavitalephoto )

Instagram used to be a place I would go to feel more connected to other humans. For a time, people were excited to share pieces of themselves with the world through these little grids. But lately my friends are expressing resentment that they need to post something. And I often feel the same. So our captions get shorter and more distanced. And it becomes yet another thing on our to-do list. But what if - humor me for a minute - what if we refused to do that? What if we knew we could take days or weeks off of posting, and we could come back and share our hearts when we really wanted to, when we had some way that we wanted to connect with the world? What if we allowed ourselves more privacy - and then, with some very specific things, we could be more public? Our time here is so fleeting. We don't get forever. And neither do the people we love the most. I hope we aren't spending the hours we have scrolling through these feeds because we think we must. Let it enhance your life - or let it go. ✨#october4 ( One of my all-time favorite portraits, by @oliviaraejames )

On days like today, it feels impossible to continue to "work" - or to share anything on this little platform that isn't heartbreak and anger about it all. But there aren't even words for it, no words that mean enough. ( Photography by @yanpalmer whose work I adore and look to in times when I feel unstable and broken open )

Over the next week or two, I'll be introducing you to each of the women in our upcoming issue. These women are incredible, and I can't wait for you to learn about each of them. First, meet @findingpaola, the founder of @fanmdjanm, pronounced "fum - jum," which means 'strong woman' in Haitian Creole. Photography : @greyandelle #bossladiesissue04

We hear you, @kristintexeira. Hoping to carve out a weekend with no to do list and lots of slow moments - and wishing the same for all of you. ❤️

Here in LA we are so lucky to have access to panels and conferences and events with incredible women. There is something happening nearly every week. But in rural areas, and even other cities, access to those types of events is more limited. So we are thrilled to be partnering with @campfire.fm to host our first VIRTUAL PANEL. Swipe through to meet our panelists. We adore these six women and so admire the lives and businesses they've built. Now you have an opportunity to ask any of them a question, right from the comfort of your home. Click the link in our bio to get all the deets, and make sure to get your questions in before Wednesday! #bossladiespanel

We only have two more FIRESIDE CHATS left of 2017. What a year it's been. On October 8, Marisa and I are excited to welcome Anne Sage (@citysage) and Caroline Lee (@teamwoodnote), the multi-talented women behind @lightlab, to the stage. Tickets and info at our profile link. . After graduating from Stanford, Anne worked as a consumer strategist in Manhattan before transitioning to full-time content creator. She co-founded Rue Magazine, and her first book, Sage Living, was published in 2015 by Chronicle Books. . Caroline and her husband Jayden own @teamwoodnote, where they create beautiful images of weddings, interiors, portraits, and editorial. In the wake of recent events in Charlottesville and elsewhere, Caroline began creating a series called Loving You Feels where she told the love stories of six couples. Caroline shared that she was seeking to "celebrate the love of so many of my friends that don't fit the 'white, hetero' standard most often portrayed in our society." . Together, Anne and Caroline created @lightlab, a beautiful studio and event space in Atwater Village. . We can't wait to chat with them about the decision to open something brick-and-mortar when so much of their work is digital, what they're currently inspired by, what they're working on, and how they weave their values into their work. Tickets and info at our profile link. Can't wait to see you there. (Photo by @dazey_la)
