5 TED Talks to Unlock Your Bad Assery

New year, new you. You know the drill. As we settle into the holiday hustle of errands, family gatherings, and self care, there’s a constant thought lingering: “What’s next for the New Year?”


To uncover the answer to this sometimes daunting question, take time to reflect, reset and redefine your intentions, goals and desires for 2018. Dig deep. Go for a walk or a drive without any distractions and allow yourself to really give into what's deep in your core. Get a notebook to jot down your reflections and use these prompts as a starting point in uncovering a deeper connection within yourself:

  • Who do you continue to aspire to be?

  • How did 2017 help shape who you are today?

  • What changes have you made in the last year?

  • What are your goals for 2018?

  • Who can help you reach these goals?

  • Choose one word you want to work on this year - this is your year to conquer that word.

Use tools like podcasts, TED Talks, Pinterest moodboards and any other of your go-to’s as inspiration. To get you started, we handpicked these five must-watch TED Talks for every woman to help unlock your inner bad assery:
