Forbes Featured Profile: Meet the Entrepreneur Helping Women in Chemistry Keep Their Hair

Kate Dilligan founded Cooler Heads in 2018 after spending $8,000 to save her own hair during breast cancer treatment the previous year. Scalp cooling, which some patients say is like having an ice pack on your head, can help many patients save all or most of their hair from falling out, a common side effect of chemo, because the cold constricts the blood vessels and prevents the. cancer-fighting chemicals from reaching hair follicles.

The Checklist

1. Nuke your calendar.

But gender and racial wealth and earnings gaps mean the standard advice isn’t one-size-fits-all, so consider boosting your cushion to cover six to 12 months’ worth of expenses.

3. Check your email just 1-2 times a day. During the year, some of us—about 40% of us, in fact—spend three weeks to more than a month (520-780 hours) dealing with work email. Cut this number down by implementing rules about when you open your inbox.
