Dear Grit followers,
thank you for remembering the Monday blog! The post planned for this week is delayed, but we will circle back with stories from one of the first women to fly for the Marines next week.
Grit Project QUOTES: In the meantime, please enjoy the collection of quotes from many of our past, present and future profiles on the Grit Project Pinterest board HERE. Save them and share them and print them and use them for when you need extra inspiration! (Many are also up on Instagram if you don't mind a mix with other kinds of photos too)
Grit Project VIDEO: For an extra boost, we're collecting videos that will motivate you and your teams on Youtube, too, short words on grit and leadership from some of our profiles and my own take on legacy after meeting my first WASPs. Find them on my Youtube channel, The Grit Project Playlist.
Grit Project BOOKS: All of the books recommended by or written by our profiled women with grit are compiled on the Grit Project resource page. Visit it and order for the women in your life...or yourself...today!
