Hello hello gorgeous ladies!
I’ve finally recovered from a bout of illness, and weirdly I feel lighter in so many ways. I feel so very thankful for my good health and I am enormously grateful to wake up every morning feeling happy and fulfilled. Even in the midst of feeling pretty hideous, I was thinking about the long list of exciting things that are happening right now.
Amongst the thoughts of sheer joy for my own business growth I had time to reflect on days of old. I thought back to the monotony of the pay rise discussions, the pain of questioning why there were no female senior manages and I cringed thinking of awkwardly laughing at the sexist jokes rather than putting a stop to it.
Maybe you can relate to that?
For years I had been an active member of the “Women’s Networks” within the corporate world. Even as a co-chair of the Women's Network, taking a prominent role in the discussions I struggled to ensure that gender diversity was at the top of the agenda. I say it was a struggle because I never felt the true shift in the masculine thinking that would be a true breakthrough in ensuring that women have an equal place in the workforce. I found it incredibly emotionally draining. I hit an all time low one day when my boss described the Women’s Network as a place where we swapped knitting patterns.
Since setting up may own business, I have not once felt the need to justify my position as a women in the world. I am creating something quite spectacular, surrounded by the most incredible women who love, trust and support one another. Maybe I have been lucky, but somehow I don't think this is the case. What I have learnt is that women make incredible entrepreneurs. We build our network wisely and with ease, we are flexible and dynamic and we most importantly we empower each other.
I love that every day I make a difference in the world. And know this, we all have the capability of making a huge impact on the world! If I can show just one woman like you, that she can set up her own business and make it in this crazy world that we live in, I have achieved something quite wonderful.
