Welcome back, Fierce Feminine Leaders! In this episode, I have a special guest on the air with me – Julie Weeks, President and CEO of Womenable, a for-profit social enterprise that works to enable women’s entrepreneurship worldwide.

Julie’s business focuses on helping women-owned businesses through improved systems, policies, laws, programs, and research-based knowledge to help women in the creation and growth of their companies. Julie is the leading expert in the field of women enterprise development, with over 30 years of experience in the public and private sector.

Since 2007, Womenable has partnered with American Express OPEN to develop and deliver research-based statistics on the role that women-owned businesses have had on the post-recession market throughout the United States and globally. She joins us today to share a few of the statistics that the 2016 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report has revealed this year in comparison to previous years, as well as shares some insight on how she grew her business and tips for women who are considering starting a business in the near future.

Thank you, Julie, for being on the show today and sharing this valuable information with the Fierce Feminine Leadership listeners.

Notable Statistics:

  • There are 11.3-Million women-owned businesses in the United States employing nearly 9-Million people and generating over $1.6-Trillion in revenue.
  • Women-owned businesses make up 38% of the business population and employ 8% of the country’s private sector workforce.
  • Since 2007, nearly 1,100 net women-owned businesses are launched each and every day.
  • 44% of women-owned businesses are owned by women of color in the United States.
  • Between 2007 and 2016, 79% of the net new women-owned businesses are owned by women of color.
  • The share of employment that are accounted for women-owned businesses, as well as revenue, remains flat lined since 2002. Employment shares have only grown by one percent – from 7% to 8%. Revenue shares have remained unchanged, at 4%.
  • The fastest growth regarding industry sector is among the smallest kinds in business; the service sector has doubled since 2007.
  • 8 in 10 United States businesses are single-person, private owned businesses, with 9 out of 10 being women-owned.

Tips Julie Shares:

  • Be relentless (in a good way); persevere to reach your business goals.
  • “Stick with it; success doesn’t happen overnight.”
  • Remember – teamwork is important. Balance your strengths and weaknesses. Hire other people to handle your weak points to grow a strong business.
  • Most importantly – have fun!

All of us have dreams. Some dream of pursuing their dream career or profession while others dream of making a great name for themselves in business. Whichever dream you might have, one thing is for certain: You have to invest in yourself and trust me when I say your future self will thank you if you start now.

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Imagine your dreams and goals to be like a small baby. In order for babies to grow healthy and strong, you have to give them all the time and commitment just like your dreams.
  • It’s natural for women in our society to put other people in front of us but now it’s time to focus on you.
  • You won’t be able to grow your dreams if you don’t invest on them or feed it scraps.
  • You have to improve your belief and commitment to your dreams so you can improve your belief and commitment to yourself.
  • Put your money where your mouth is. Invest in your dreams.
  • Do not give up on goals when they get hard. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
  • Don’t make excuses to put your dreams on hold.
  • Successful companies burn through loads of cash when they’re growing. You yourself can’t grow without spending money.
  • Investing in yourself first is a powerful mindset so invest in you.
  • Investing on something is not the same as doing work to generate the results. You can’t spend your way out of a problem. 

My Challenge To You!

Take your dreams and goals seriously. Commit to investing in yourself and in those goals to make them a reality. Get access to the right kind of people who possess the right kind of skills and influences. Give yourself permission to invest in yourself.

According to research, over half of today’s workforce is made up of women professionals, but far less have achieved their goals of landing a top position within their company. Statistics show that by mid-career, these powerful women with leadership potential lose their desire to reach the top midway in their careers.

In this episode, I am going to share with you the top three career derailers that are the most common reasons for great, aspiring women to lose their desire and confidence in landing that top spot.

  1. Broaden Your Career Focus

Women tend to specialize in specific roles within their company. Specializing in a particular field can all too often limit your chances for successfully landing a top position or becoming the company’s next CEO. Ladies, if you want to become an influential woman leader, you need to learn and appreciate how your organization works as a whole, and to do that, you need to start making lateral moves into unknown territory.

Until you learn how your company works as an entity, you won’t be able to lead it.

  1. Become a ‘People Person’ – Learn How to Work with People You Don’t Like

Being a “people person” does not mean that everyone has to like you – or that you have to like everyone. It means that you have successfully mastered the art of communicating and working with people whose personalities may conflict with your own. Mastering this skill is an incredibly important attribute to have when you are trying to land a top seat in your company or organization.

After all, you don’t think Sheryl Sandberg likes everyone she ever worked with at Facebook and Google, do you? Of course not, but by learning how to build solid working relationships with people, it enabled her to become a top women leader.

  1. Take Smart Risks

Being a CEO often involves taking smart risks. If you want to be a CEO of your company, you need to learn how to get out of your comfort zone and make the decision to take a smart risk. Ask for tough assignments, even if they are only short-term projects. Raise your hand at the next meeting and allow your voice and opinions to be heard. Volunteer new ideas to your boss and ask for new and different roles in the company. Some new positions may require you to accept a demotion, but that’s okay! It will only help your career in the long-run.

There are too many women in the workforce playing it safe at work. If you want to be CEO, you cannot be one of them. Get the courage to speak up, take risks, and lead your career YOUR way.

Only you have control over the direction of your career. It’s time to get the courage you need to take action and be the Fierce Feminine Leader we all know you can be!

Tracking your time can be an effective way to track your productivity. In fact, I often recommend my clients to track their working hours to give them an overview of exactly how productive they are and track how many things they actually do while at work. But have you ever thought about tracking you’re your personal time – the time outside of working for your organization or business? Many people do not realize just how powerful and valuable tracking their non-working hours can be.

I recently experimented with tracking my time, both at work and at home. This experiment has opened my eyes to many lessons about how I spend my time, my true productivity level, and even taught me how much time I actually spend with my family and friends.

In this episode, I’m going to share with you the 5 lessons I have learned after tracking my time over a 14 day period and why you should conduct your own experiment to help you identify where you could improve how you spend your time each week.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why tracking your personal time, as well as your working hours, can help you identify areas to improve
  • How tracking your time can help you overcome “mom guilt”

 

5 Things Tracking Your Time Each Week Can Teach You:

  1. Identify if you’re truly getting enough sleep
  2. Identify if you’re eating enough to fuel your daily, intense ambition and energy level
  3. The amount of time you truly spend with your children
  4. The number of hours you actually dedicate to work
  5. Identify if you’re lying to yourself about not having time to do fun or important things

As fierce feminine leaders and entrepreneurs wearing many hats and taking on a wide variety of personal and professional responsibilities, finding ways to improve our productivity and get the most accomplished in our daily lives can sometimes seem unattainable. In fact, there are literally thousands of books, tools, and apps available on the internet that are designed to help people become more productive and manage their time more effectively. However, the truth is, we truly do not have an accurate gauge of how we spend our time – and because of that – we often feel like we are less productive than we truly are.

My guest today is Laura Vanderkam, an expert in time management and productivity. Laura is the author of several productivity and time management books, including I Know How She Does It: What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast and 168 Hours. Her work has been featured in dozens of publications including Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, and USA Today. She joins me today to share her insight and research regarding how many highly successful women manage their time, the myths about having a big career while raising a family, and why she believes tracking your time throughout the week – including the weekends – is the key to discovering how you can improve your productivity and time management skills.

 

“How we think we spend our time often has very little relation to how we actually spend our time.” – Laura Vanderkam

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What she discovered after tracking her time in 30-minute increments
  • Why she tracks her time during the weekend as well as during the week
  • The biggest net benefits of tracking her time each week
  • The misconception that having a big career or working full-time will reduce the amount of time you spend with your children
  • Surprising trends she discovered during her 1,001-hour research project
  • Utilizing morning hours and structuring morning routines to work for you

 

Laura Vanderkam’s Top 3 Success Tips:

  1. Track your time for one week.
  2. Really think about what you want to spend more time doing.
  3. Think about how you use those “little bits of time.”

Do you strongly believe that working hard produces its own results and rewards? That if you work hard enough, you won’t need to “toot your own horn” and share your accomplishments with others because, ultimately, your hard work is proof of your success and accomplishments?

Many brilliant, high-achieving professional women shy away from talking about themselves, their accomplishments, and their successes because they don’t want to come off as obnoxious or leave the impression that they are bragging. What many of these fierce ladies may not realize, though, is that sharing their accomplishments with the world helps them claim their power, their authority, and their voice.

So, how can you subtly toot your own horn without coming off as obnoxious or braggy? That, my fierce friends, is exactly what I’m going to share with you today! I’m sharing five powerful strategies to help you share your accomplishments and successes without sounding like you have a chip on your shoulder.

 

“As you advance, that hard work and the results become table stakes.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why sharing your accomplishments are critical to your potential for advancement
  • How to share your accomplishments without sounding obnoxious
  • The importance of scheduling weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly “check-ins” with your boss or clients

 

5 Tips to Subtly Toot Your Own Horn:

  1. Talk about your team, their results, while making it clear that you are in the driver’s seat
  2. Take your boss and your client out to lunch
  3. Get recommendations on LinkedIn
  4. Use the power of stories
  5. Share what you have learned.

We all know that feedback is vitally important to our growth as entrepreneurs. Without feedback, how would we know what areas of our business and the way we lead our teams need to be improved upon? Sometimes, though, feedback can be hard to accept. Sometimes, well-intentioned people in our lives give us feedback that may not be helpful in advancing us toward the next level of success we want to achieve in our lives, businesses, or careers.

On today’s episode, I’m sharing 5 powerful tips on getting the candid feedback you need to advance in your business and career. I’m also sharing a few key strategies that I use to help me decipher whether a piece of feedback that I receive is truly feedback or merely a statement of judgement as well as how I handle the judgmental “haters” that provide unconstructive feedback.

 

“Attitude, moodiness, and defensiveness are the surest ways to have people stop bringing you feedback and begin writing you off.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The relationship between gender bias and the lack of feedback among female professionals
  • Getting used to receiving and asking for blunt, harsh feedback
  • How to identify and handle unconstructive criticism

 

3 Ways to Handle Unconstructive Criticism:

  1. Remember Oprah’s phrase: “People will support you until you exceed their expectations of you.”
  2. Allow yourself to get angry. It’s okay to rant and vent a little!
  3. Identify if there is a lesson you can take from the feedback. If so, take the lesson. If not, discard the feedback and move on.
