A few months ago I served on a panel sponsored by our local branch of the Association of Women Journalists here in Chicago, devoted to the topic above. Please note--it's pretty long, maybe 90 minutes or more. If you want to go deep, have at it. I start out by talking a lot about failure, cautionary lessons, and how they can motivate you.

 

 Yeah, that's me--second from left at the table, with the crossed arms and gleaming dome.
