Choosing Bravery Over Perfection, with Reshma Saujani of Girls Who Code Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso

    • Business

Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code, joins host Sophia Amoruso to discuss her new book, Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, And Live Bolder. In it, Saujani argues that there's a stark, cultural difference in how we are raising boys and girls to approach risk-taking and failure. As in, boys are taught to embrace risk and see failure as inevitable while girls are taught to strive for perfection and to lean toward what they're good at. And it's in that quest for perfection that makes it especially challenging for women to veer from their comfort zone. We come to see failure, Saujani tells Sophia, as a thing to avoid at all costs. The solution? Approach life and your career with a mindset focused on bravery—not perfection. Listen in to hear Saujani recount what it’s like to have your dad deal with trolls online, how we can overcome the pitfalls of living in a success-driven culture, and much more.
