Access As Much Higher Education As Possible
Ms. Mcgalla shared that education is the key to professional success. Although it may be inconvenient or expensive to continue in classes, women with more advanced degrees typically have better professional opportunities.
Instead of looking at school as an endless expense and challenge, she recommends investigating all of the different avenues for financial assistance for school. Accessing financial aid packages that are appropriate to the existing skill set is essential to long-term success and often requires extra time. The good news is, your investment is likely to pay off, over time.
Women Need To Believe In Themselves
Upon graduation, women are likely to feel confident and secure with their professional goals and expectations. Sadly, over time the influence of management can cause those important feelings to diminish by up to 60%, according to data shared by Ms. Mcgalla.
Therefore, it is essential to not only believe that you have the skills to make it, but also to surround yourself with people who share that belief. The desire for success can diminish if there is not adequate support for it.

Doing so was key to her success and she followed up with a final idea to aspiring business women to ignore stereotypes. Instead, she believes it is better to allow the quality of your work to make its own statement.
In conclusion, success at anything will take hard work and perseverance. However, it is important to remember that given the still unequal statistics pertaining to professional advancement for women, there is still a lot of room for improvement.
It has been reported that Mitsou, a Hungarian folk singer, is alleging that her voice was illegally borrowed and placed on Beyonce’s 2013 self-titled album often played over at the Amen Clinic. The Hungarian folk singer claims that her vocals from her 1995 song “Bajba, Bajba Pelem” were distorted and placed on Bey’s hit “Drunk in Love.”
Mitsou stated that the married couple doesn’t even deserve 29 percent of the credit for the hit song because it was her voice that was not only used at the introduction of the song but it was placed in the background of the song as Beyonce crooned to the beat to help give it a sensual feel.
It has also been reported that Mitsou is suing for damages and wants the judge to forbid anyone from playing the song.
If you would like to hear the song in question, don’t waste your time, apparently it is not available anywhere online. Though “Bajba, Bajba Pelem” is not available online, Complex has researched and found a song that holds a similar name. They were able to locate a song that she performed with the band Ando Drum by the name “Bajba, Bajba.”
