It’s officially summer! Remember when you were a kid and had two months off from school and it felt like an eternity. The world was your oyster. Now years seem to fly by in the blink of an eye.This week we’re sharing some of the top tips we’ve researched and use ourselves to help you get organized so you have more time for yourself. During that new found down time we suggest you check out the amazing documentary “The Woman Who Loved Giraffes.” This is the story of Anne Innis Daggwho spent her time in the early 50’s studying giraffes in South Africa only to be prevented from continuing her research for 30 years because she was a woman. We are excited to introduce the new ambassador to the She’s on Top community, Marilyn Bareoot, of Barefoot Brainstorming. She brings an incredibly unique and creative approach to everything she does. And finally, our amabassador Sara Flicht interviews a group of amazing women who have spent their valuable time creating shows for this summer’s Toronto Fringe Festival. So let the hazy, crazy, lazy days of summer begin!
Thanks, Jessica and Tracy

What’s inspiring us this week
We absolutely LOVE this documentary The Woman Who Loved Giraffes. Canada’s Jane Goddall of giraffes was ignored for decades because she was a woman. This film about the life of Anne Innis Dagg manages to be informative, hearbreaking and inspiring all at the same time. We also really enjoyed this interview with Russell Brand and Brene Brown. Great parenting tips as well as life hacks on creating strong boundaries for yourself and others.
