This is Not the Time to Stop Investing In Your Career

Fast Track Job Security With a Professional Brand

“It’s hard to be the keynote speaker at breakfast if you’ve got to get somebody to school at 8:00 o’clock. Women are still more likely to be responsible for kids at home and that often stops them from speaking. They’re like, ‘I could go off and be a speaker at this event and seen as a visionary expert or I could be home for dinner.’ These are still some of the reasons that women turn down what are seen as extras.” Explained Bobbie Carlton, events pioneer and CEO of Innovation Women.

It’s a circular problem. Thought leadership hasn’t been diverse because leadership isn’t. And between intense schedules at work and home, adding anything, even career-boosting visibility may feel impossible.

But what if thought leadership is the rocket fuel your career needs for growth? A vehicle that creates more choice and gets you off of the hamster wheel? Having Continue reading “This is Not the Time to Stop Investing In Your Career”

How to Elevate Your Impact As a Leader!

10 Takeaways About Leadership, Winning Mindset, Work/Life, Strategy and Success, from the BlogHer Creator’s Summit

“Let’s all pledge in this room… here, put your hands up.” Amy Schumer said. I looked around and about a thousand hands, went up slowly and in unison, like balloons at a concert. “I, then say your name…” She said. We laughed and tentatively said our names. She continued, “I pledge that when I find an honest, powerful creator of content I will promote the ever-loving shit out of her!” Applause followed as she concluded her powerful, irreverent and wildly funny, presentation. Her message that women can take steps, big and small, to help each other succeed was echoed throughout event.

Two weeks ago, female content creators, platform builders and brand marketers, gathered to learn and connect at the BlogHer Creator’s Summit. The agenda balanced celebrity star-power, with spotlights on up-and-coming leaders. Practical guidance, accompanied ‘big picture’ inspiration.

Enjoy wise quotes about leadership, entrepreneurship, strategy, career growth, work/life integration and cultivating a winning mindset from powerhouse speakers!

Don’t Hide In the Bathroom! How To Build Your Network & Control Your Destiny

“…At first I thought I was in the wrong job, it was very stressful and male dominated. Then, after changing jobs, I thought…well it must be (that I’m in) the wrong country and I moved to Europe!  Then, I considered perhaps I was in the wrong line of work.  It turns out, I love my line of work,” said Morra Aarons-Mele, Author, Podcast Host and Entrepreneur. I nodded, smiling as I listened to the self-described ‘work/life rebel’ explain why she started her own business. She added, “It took an ‘a-ha’ moment to realize the panic attacks and unhappiness that prompted me to keep quitting jobs was about how I was doing the work. I didn’t want office politics or the BS. The environment over stimulated me. I wanted to work from home.”
After a mutual friend told me about her new book, on networking for introverts and I learned she’s local, I had to meet her!
 
“My book is about networking for hermits.”  I laughed because after speaking with her for a few minutes, she came across as anything but a hermit!  Morra is sharp, funny and was completely at ease sharing the painful struggle with anxiety and depression that sucked joy from her early career. Brave and definitely not hermit-like!  She admits, “You probably wouldn’t guess I’m an introvert and I never realized it until much later!”

“Come on in…” I walked tentatively into the doorway, past the tarp and froze as I watched the half-dozen contractors, busily hammering and moving large pieces of equipment across the floor. I was motioned inside by a man wearing a toolbelt, “It’s okay, Jenn’s downstairs…just be very careful.” He smiled. Noted. As I made my way down the narrow staircase, I had a chance to (finally) meet Jenn Mason, Entrepreneur, cheese expert, supermom and today, hands-on construction project manager.

How To Get Comfortable (& Thrive) With Personal Branding!

#MomsGrowth #GettingUnstuck #MomsDevelopment #MomsGrowthHacks #MomsCareer“I opened the door, amidst a blur of luggage and wiggly wide-eyed toddlers…I looked around, closed my eyes and breathed in the sights of home.”

Twenty-two days in country and forty-eight hours of travel later, she was beyond tired and a little nervous. It seemed surreal that the adventure, she planned so carefully for, was about to begin.  

“We committed to cocooning…” Which means no outside caregivers for six months (that’s right, as in none) to firmly establish trust with her newly adopted daughters.  

“When we began trying to start a family (years before that moment) I knew that one of us would need to be the primary caregiver.” Continue reading “How To Get Comfortable (& Thrive) With Personal Branding!”
