  • The Battle with Self-Doubt..and How to Beat It! – Dreamers // Doers
    s say this important phone call was an interview for an amazing job What are the reasons that we might feel self doubt Fear of judgment We re afraid of the way we might be judged by the snapshot image we ve given to the interviewer Fear of failure We re afraid of the thousands of reasons we think we deserve to have our application thrown out Fear of success Wait Fear of success Isn t success the goal It s a logical question But think about it Fear of success is that moment when you think Oh shit If I succeed then I ll have to actually DO this It s that subconscious fear that if you do get the job you won t be able to meet their expectations What happens if I get it Will I be able to carry out that long list of demands Will I survive the long hours and the pressure Will the compensation be enough to motivate me Will I be fired and fail miserably So what is it about that moment Why do we women in particular battle that incredibly debilitating self doubt Just google self doubt and you ll come up with lists of articles comparing how women answer interview questions and how men answer them It s clear women underestimate their abilities while men overestimate them It s a really interesting topic one that I wasn t even aware of until a few months ago By talking about it and bringing it to the attention of the public we can start to change it Knowing that I will statistically come off as slightly insecure hesitant and less confident motivates me to make a conscious effort to emphasize my abilities and top achievements in a strong matter of fact manner The difference as Katty Kay and Claire Shipman point out in their article The Confidence Gap in The Atlantic is that men aren t trying to emphasize anything they just believe that they are already awesome If anything men tilt toward overconfidence and we were surprised to learn that they come by that state quite naturally They aren t consciously trying to fool anyone Could this be our primordial disadvantage Is it possible that the historical sexism inequality and continued disadvantages today stem from something as simple as our lack of testosterone It seems so unfair when put in such simple terms seeing our fate twisted by mother nature But it s good to note that increased testosterone doesn t always mean better decisions There s something in the female make up too that is invaluable empathy humility bonding connection and compassion Typically seen as lesser qualities than testosterone induced confidence and power it isn t hard to see that being able to truly connect with your interviewer will substantially increase your chances So yes women often lack confidence when compared to men But we shouldn t see that as a disadvantage especially when we have so many bonus traits

  • Ask Me Anything with Megan Hannum – Dreamers // Doers
    need to shift directions into building teams and looking for experts in the areas the need the most Most SMART teams focused on technology build out will focus on getting their engineering teams as tight as possible and only then when the product and infrastructure is in place they start to hire their first operations marekting sales roles In general everyone loves a good attitude work ethic reputation proactive mentality ability to ask for help and know what you dont know passion knowledge for product market team player when you start to scale up more so on experience background expertise area but above all cultural fit Q Do you have any thoughts or insights around best benefits for companies and payroll systems Are there ones you love that can grow with you Would you start with one and switch to another when you scale Sashka Rothschild A This is probably the 1 area we save companies the most time and money It used to be that there were maybe one or two really good options for a startup in NYC but in the last 2 3 years given Obama care there have been a ton of new health care startups that have come up in the market some of them good some of them really good marketing plays but extremely bad plans and services Geographically Are you employees all based in nyc or are some in other markets Demographics for underwriting age sex nature of the business Overall you want to make sure that as you are growing your team and hiring you are offering the most comprehensive plans to your employees and they are taken care of We do a full on analysis for our companies to compare costs and coverage so we can fully walk you through your best options and educate you on why one plan is going to be best suited for you than another Q How do most startups handle ramping up their staffing vendors etc in financial projections immediately after closing a Series A round Chaya Cooper A As far as recruiting if you have closed a proper financing round and the business is growing its perfectly fine to bring in very cost and startup friendly recruiters to help build your team For example through FundedBuy we are partnered with a technical recruiter who specializes in working with devs and engineering They take 20 first year salary and have been very successful in placing candidates for our companies For nontechnical talent we take 10 first year salary think marketing sales bd opps admin etc which we curate from our network and when you give the green light for an intro it s up to you to do your internal processing If you hire them we are paid all based on contingency One thing I would STRONGLY advise AGAINST are recruiters who are asking you for equity off the bat Personally I think its bad business its bad for your cap table and there are
