The founders of Girls Who Code and LearnVest, as well as an advisor to Twitter and Dropbox offer advice in this edition of our weekly reading guide.

Where does the best advice come from? Not out of a book but from those who have been there before you, making mistakes that you can avoid and doing things the hard way so you can have it easier.

That’s why advice from successful female founders and tech industry execs in especially valuable, and why this week’s reading guide is so awesome. It’s jam-packed with advice from top female entrepreneurs. Plus, we threw in some fun posts about the accelerating drone industry, the forgotten history of Apple, and Facebook’s WhatsApp acquisition for spice. Enjoy!
