Susan McGalla Shares Tips For Success With Future Businesswomen

The needs and expectations for women in business have grown enormously over the last few decades, but more motivation and change is needed for it to continue, according the the ideas shared by Susan McGalla with PR Newswire. Specifically, Susan McGalla, known for her expertise in the different aspects of branding, marketing, operational efficiencies and similar industries, has three valuable pieces of information to pass along to the next generation of women looking toward the professional workplace.

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.

You Are Unique And Should Ignore Glass Ceilings 

The long-held belief about the alleged glass-ceiling and that few women make it past it has negatively impacted many women and other minorities over the years. Fortunately, Ms. McGalla has achieved success following some unique advice of her own…Forget the glass ceiling and ignore the prejudices that may be there. 

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.

Beyonce and Jay Z getting sued

One of the biggest hits that we all jammed to last year, is currently in a scandal. Beyonce and Jay Z’s hit “Drunk in Love”, co-produced by Timbaland, is the topic of a lawsuit according to reports.

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.”
