My Team of Strong Women
There's room enough for you. And the woman next to you, too.
I don't know what it is about women-- especially women in business-- but we often don't treat each other very well.
It's like we've believed the lie that there are only so many spots for women at the tippy top of the business world. There's only so much...money, influence, prestige, confidence, acclaim…to go around. The scarcity mentality tells us that if "she" gets something, then I don't get that thing.
And it's just not true.
I lead a team of all women. Strong, smart, determined women who make me and my business better. They're experts in things that I legitimately will never master. I can't imagine how my business would suffer if I was intimidated or threatened by their gifts, or if they were too self-conscious to see what a role they play in my business.
Because we all know our strengths and how much we depend on each other for success, we're a stronger, happier, more purposeful team who can enjoy and encourage each other.
I wish this wasn't so rare. To all my ladies out there, there's room for you. And the kind of women you want to surround yourself with know their worth, and aren't intimidated by the magic that is you.
