Dealing With Me Once a Month: Major Key to Success

Welcome to (Net)Work B*tch, the monthly newsletter for busy, boss ladies who want to network and meet other cool women but don't want to leave their comfy beds (or Making A Murderer) to do it.

A note from Lily (Me! The creator of this newsletter!):

Hi, folks! Some of you have been on this newsletter list for a couple months, others were just invited in the last couple of days.

One of my goals for 2016 is to really grow this newsletter and see it do some good for a lot of people, so it'd warm my wifi-dependent heart if you took the time to recommend another lady for it (takes 30 seconds!) and reached out to the women mentioned below.

Y'all are the best.


Quick Logistics

Literally the Only Requirement for the Newsletter

The only thing you need to do if you're on this newsletter: Find ONE boss, ambitious, awesome lady to join it, too! 

Steps for how to do this:

1. Think of a boss lady.

2. Fill out THIS FORM (takes no more than 30 seconds, PROMISE) OR tell said boss lady to subscribe here.

4. I'll do the rest.


If you have suggestions, additions, ANYTHING that you want added to this newsletter, I'm all ears! Feel free to email me at or talk to me on Twitter (since that's my home anyway).

Inspiring Badass Lady Quote of the Month

We all need quotes in our lives, yeah?

In early high school years, I was pretty chubby, and I spent a lot of time on my computer, before it was cool to have a computer, because there was a time that was true. So that's where I developed my personality." - Rashida "It's Okay to Be an Internet Human" Jones
Reads That Are Worth Your Time

Each month, I want to feature a couple of things I (or any of you) read on the internet that are totally perspective-changing for one reason or another (and usually career-oriented) because #knowledgeispower or whatever.

1. Want to Make Your Blog Stand Out? Use the Blue Ocean Strategy by Garrett Moon

Regardless of field, everyone on Planet Earth is starting a blog these days, and this article made me go, "Whoa wait holy sh*t blogging makes sense now!" So yeah, A+ read.

2. Make This Year Count: The Perfect Career Goals for Every Single Month by Alyse Kalish

I'm not just posting this because I work for The Muse; I actually think it's one of the best "career goals!!!!!!" articles out there.

3. A Story of a F*ck Off Fund by Paulette Perhach

My dad calls this "FU money," but I think "f*ck off fund" gets the job done too. This is also probably one of the most important pieces about personal finance you'll read this week (or even this month).

Make it rain dolla bills, y'all (but then, like, put them in your savings account or somewhere with a good interest rate).

Email me if you have a cool read you want to submit!
