New Satellite Sisters book coming in 2015 . #YTB

The new Satellite Sisters book “You’re the Best: A Celebration of Friendship” is a thank you note to your own Satellite Sisters. It’s coming in September 2015 from Prospect Park Books. #YTB

We need you again, Satellite Sisterhood! This time, we want to hear about your best friend and then we want to hear about your fictional best friend. Each contribution will be considered separately for publication in our new book You’re The Best: A Celebration of Friendship coming out in September 2015 from Porspect Park Books. You did a wonderful job giving us the name of your group of girlfriends so now we want to hear from you about these two questions:


  • Give us Three Words that describe your Best Friend. Adjectives, nouns, adverbs! We don’t care, but we only need three.
  • Tell is about your Fictional Best Friend! Is it Rachel? Is it Mary Tyler Moore? Is it Katniss Everdeen? We want to know a fictional character from TV, Books, Movies, Songs that you think you could totally be friends with. Or maybe it’s a celebrity that you have no shot of ever befriending but in all those interviews she just seems like she’s really nice and would be a fantastic person to hang out with? Give is the name of your Fake BFF.


That’s it, Satellite Sisterhood. Thanks so much for your support.

Liz Dolan and Lian Dolan on the  Satellite Sisters podcast today. Listen up, Women at Work, because today we discuss speaking up at the office.  Do women need to interrupt more to get ahead in the workplace?  Liz Dolan, CMO, gets worked up about Gender Discrimination in the workplace, the Ellen Pao/ Kleiner Perkins Lawsuit. Plus, Speaking up at the office, Interrupting to Disrupt and 10 words every girl should know. Get the latest on the situation from the New York Times here. 


In my personal experience, it’s not always the loudest person in the room who is the smartest. And, no one interrupts the most powerful person in the room, the boss. Liz Dolan, Corporate Big Wig

Plus, the Test Drive that Wasn’t. Why is buying a car such a terrible experience? Doesn’t anyone test drive cars anymore? Lian Dolan on her epic car buying fail. She tried to test drive a Fiat Abarth and Cooper S, but the car dealers refused.  Three dealerships, zero test drives. Thanks, Brittany at the Glendale VW dealership who managed to get the Volkswagen GTI off the floor and onto the road. I loved it. Ciao, Fiat.
