Hi Fierce One,
I’m tapping this one out on a Friday afternoon. The team has gone home, my husband is making dinner, and I’m picking up the red wine on my way home.
I had two interesting conversations today.
In one, a female entrepreneur shared that she wonders why she continues to be hard on herself, even though she’s 3x her business in the last year.
In another conversation, a woman shared her frustration over the fact that her ideas are often diminished or talked over…only to be celebrated when shared by a man.
Whether you are growing a business or advancing a career, there’s a LOT to be said for power. Having it, leveraging it, and…perhaps most critically for women, feeling comfortable using it.
For so many women, power isn’t about dominance, it’s about self-acceptance. The power to accept ourselves, back ourselves up and follow our ambition not from a place of unworthiness or competitiveness, but from a place of inherent drive and motivation.
For us, power is about articulating our ideas, and seeing those contributions see the light of action and execution.
I’ve just opened super-early bird registration for Power + Presence + Position, a 3-day women’s leadership retreat I’m hosting in Toronto November 2-4, 2018.
