  • In today's Lenny Letter (have ya'll not signed up for that yet???), Kat Cole, a group president at Focus Brands, tells us about the worst time in her career. She had just assumed the role of president of Cinnabon — at 32! — and was afraid to step on toes. "I had this classic moment where I said to myself, 'Who am I to question them?'" -- we can all relate, right? No matter what your role is, sometimes that self-doubt creeps in and you crap out. Sign up for the newsletter to read Kat's story, what she learned and how she was able to make it a positive.
  • Revlon and Fordham University partnered up on a study to see if a ritual of self-care could boost self-esteem. Turns out -- gasp -- there IS a correlation. There's also a really neat video campaign that goes along with the study, and it made us cry.
  • Serena Williams is dominating another arena of sports today, as she was named Sports Illustrated's 2015 Sportsperson of the Year. This is the first time a woman has held this title in THIRTY-TWO YEARS (since 1983). We're not shocked. Congrats, Serena!
  • Melanie Griffith gives you yet another script to use to deal with the body-shaming Instagram haters.
