Marne Platt – A Real Ms Career Girl, Author, and Entrepreneur
Here at Ms Career Girl, we’ve been honored to have Marne Platt be one of our columnists. Marne has been sharing her wisdom twice each month since the Summer of 2016. While creating one article twice a month may not sound like a lot, let me assure you it is. When you place that as an “extra” on top of all the other obligations and engagements of a working woman, it takes a level of dedication that most don’t appreciate. And she hasn’t missed a beat.
On top of the 35 or so articles she’s written for Ms Career Girl, Marne also published a book, “Living Singlish,” That’s one you should pick up and maybe stick in your purse as a go-to big sister. As one review said, it’s a –
“fantastic guide to cultivating the habits and mindsets that lead to living a fabulous Singlish life. Platt walks young women, whether single by chance or by choice, through the process of self-discovery and empowerment she went through on her own journey.”
Be sure to read her article published today in which she shares a bit more of that sisterly wisdom.
As for her contributions to Ms Career Girl, here’s a few of my favorites that are worth a look if you haven’t seen them. Or a second look if you have!
