Women’s News: What These 21 Amazing Women Were Doing Around Age 25

This weekend we relocated the Kingdom to go away with a group of blogger friends at a house on a lake. We bounced ideas off of each other, ate, wrote, drank, ate, looked out on this amazing view and found a way to be creative with no disruptions. This morning while looking over the lake enjoying our coffee I found this blog from LadyRomp about what amazing women were doing when they were 25. At 25, I taking major risks. I got married and jumped ship to a start-up company that sent me on a great path. I’m no longer there and am out on my own now. But I learned so much and experienced first hand that it was ok to take risks. Number 6 is Marissa Mayer. She was the 20th employee at Google at age 25, talk about a risk that paid off! Happy Sunday all. I hope you find these women inspiring and are able to be creative today!

Once upon a time there was a boring HR person sitting in a back office filling out paperwork spouting sections from the handbook. I’m not that HR person. Work is a scary and sometimes funny place with lots of lessons to learn along the way. People don’t follow the rules, it’s HR’s job to steer them in the right direction.

My Name is Denise Benages and I have been in the Human Resource field for over 16 years. I am president of HR Midwest, Inc. I plan on telling the epic lore of the workplace and help with solutions.
