Does anyone else have a huge woman crush on Tina Fey and Amy Poehler? They are smart, talented, funny, and gorgeous. Do you know what else I love about this duo? They have been friends since they were doing improv in Chicago and they have remained friends through it all – whether its been doing Weekend Update together on SNL, starring in movies together, working on their own tv shows, getting married, having babies, or going through a divorce, these two have each other’s backs.
The thing I love about them most is that they don’t “trip the head cheerleader”. They don’t get jealous or competitive of each other’s successes. They prove that the secret to success, is support -and collaboration! Women in business (and blogging!) can be each others’s biggest ally, or worst enemy. To quote an article*, “These women are each other’s head cheerleaders. If more women could learn to support each other and cheer each other on, we could use that collective energy to break through that glass ceiling once and for all.”
WCBC was created to be a community where bloggers would support, encourage, and inspire each other and we absolutely love seeing how wonderful, welcoming, and kind our members are. You rock our worlds, and support each other in ways similar to Tina and Amy. Let’s continue to celebrate each others successes and to form friendships and collaborations that make everyone a little stronger.
