How to Remain Inspired as a Woman in Business
“If the last two years on this planet have taught me anything, it’s that I am a powerful resource for this world and it needs me. I also must have daily inspiration surging through me as I build better ways of doing business with women globally.
It’s imperative, actually and I implore you to make the same inspired choices for yourself in how you show up to work, in your personal life and shoot, even at the grocery store.”
Women in Leadership: Inspiring Others and Changing the World
“There is no question that women are powerful and can be great leaders. However, many times women don’t take on leadership roles because they feel they aren’t qualified or they don’t feel confident in their abilities.
What we need to remember is that when women step up and take on leadership positions, they inspire others to do the same.
Women who lead show other women that it is possible to achieve anything they want, regardless of their gender. Leadership means different things to different people, but one thing is for sure – when women take on leadership roles, the whole world benefits!”
Inspiration to be Female Forward
“Are you feeling overwhelmed by all suffering in the world right now?
While we must stay vigilant, informed and support those suffering around the world, we must also care for ourselves and there is nothing quite so healing as entertainment. To that end, here are some shows to provide you temporary respite from the state of the world.”
Get Inspired: Integration is the New Inclusion
“We see this thing we think is reality, but it’s not reality. It’s actually all based on our assumptions of it, the frameworks that have existed since before we arrived.
For example, we have frameworks of patriarchy and colonialism still at play in our current world. Those are not my favorite frameworks, and so I don’t like to assume that they are true just because we can see evidence of them.
I want to dream of new frameworks, and then create them.”
When You’re Struggling to Find Inspiration
“I have been dancing with inspiration and inspired action for as long as I can remember. In my 20s, I always felt like I was chasing the next inspired moment.
Inspired actions would come to me like a wave I could ride into the vision of my future.
When I reached my 30s, I went through some more challenging life events that deprived me of my inspired actions and visions. I was in survival mode where the most important thing was to make it to the next hour or day in one piece.
I am in the latter half of my 30s now, and my relationship with inspired thought and action has shifted quite a bit. Inspired moments are no longer something I chase, but something I allow to find me.”
Get Inspired to Do Business Differently
“As a thought leader and a woman in business, I’ve always been curious to push the envelope on how we can use tech for more effective altruism.
Last year at this time I was teeing up the launch of this big idea I had during Covid closures in 2021 on how we could better connect women to the tools & resources we need to be effective and strong leaders. You know, like a boys club but instead for women leaders who want to see the world change.”
