  • Natalie T. Reisman - Lean In-spirational!As a young female lawyer this book struck many a chord. I went in tentatively after hearing much press for and against this book. I found it wonderful and inspirational, rarely pedantic or belittling. Sheryl explicitly and repeatedly states that her opinions are not for everyone, that she's not telling stay-at-home-moms that they're doing something wrong. She rightly and convincingly presents an argument for women to lean in to careers with full strength until a need actually comes up to pull back (if it does). The book made me look back and wince at my young twentysomething self who spent interviews asking what us women were told to ask in interviews - what's the work life balance like here? how do you manage kids and law firm life? I'm sure no one ever told the men in our classes to ask those questions (and I'm sure virtualy none of them did). I watched time and time again as my colleagues turned down opportunities now because they thought it might impeded their ability to raise a family at some point a decade down the road. Sherly helps illuminate the lost decade (and beyond!) that you trade when you make decisions like that. I think it should be mandatory reading for people of both genders in law and business school (and beyond).
  • Kelly - Hormone imbalance and thyroid diseaseAfter the birth of my second child I did not feel normal. I was having issues with anxiety and short-term memory loss. I thought it was just my postpartum hormones and that they would settle down soon. After 8 weeks of not feeling any better, I knew I needed help. Of course I wanted to lose my baby weight, but more importantly I was very uncomfortable with how I felt. After a little research, I stumbled upon an article about Lyn-Genet Recitas and The Plan. I immediately signed up for a consult and began my journey on The Plan. She worked with me on identifying both the foods to eat and the foods to stay away from, which is dependent on my unique body chemistry. Most importantly, The Plan helped me uncover that I have thyroid disease, which was causing my anxiety and short-term memory loss. In addition, I was able to identify which foods triggered my eczema and when I eliminated them from my diet I was eczema free - and still am! I remember sitting in a dermatologist office many years ago and the doctor quickly wrote me a prescription for an ointment to put on my eczema. Fortunately, I never filled it and now I know I will never need it! I have been living as a "Planner" for 9 months and have never felt better. Oh, and all of my baby weight is gone and I am 2 sizes smaller than my PRE-pregnancy size. I am blessed to know Lyn-Genet. She is simply brilliant!
