Morning Brew – Out goalkeeper Nadine Angerer wins best player in the world award

 
 

Good morning!

The Evening Standard lists five of “London’s best lesbian films.” Strangely none of them are based in nor filmed in London.

Kim Stolz discusses how to get ahead in the business world with Elle. A quote:

“Successful people own what they do. They are the first people to say, ‘That was my idea.’ If you’re truly a successful person, you feel pride in that and you want to own it. If you’re someone who’s undermining your own accomplishments, how do you expect to be successful? You most likely are not going to be.”
