Soledad Speaks in Spokane

From Kxly website:

The Women Helping Women Fund hosted its annual luncheon Monday to raise thousands of dollars for local non-profit groups with keynote speaker Soledad O’Brien on hand to help encourage and inspire the crowd of more than 2,000 people at the Spokane Convention Center.

At Monday’s luncheon, just like in her reports on CNN, Soledad O’Brien didn’t mince words. When it comes to balancing a career that sends her around the globe and taking care of four kids under the age of six Soledad says she finds the balancing act difficult.

“It is hard. It is hard. And just like you do with any kind of advice, you need the real straight scoop on it. It is difficult. It's just not easy, and any woman who says ‘Oh my gosh its just so easy’ they are lying to you," O’Brien said.

Straight forward advice, Soledad says, is the secret behind good mentoring.

“The help is saying to people, ‘You're not doing this well.’ The help is in saying ‘This is where you need to be and we need to get you there and I'm willing to help get you there.’ But the help is not in spinning something at all. That’s not good mentoring," she said.
