Andrea Mallard is the Chief Marketing Officer at Athleta, an ethical apparel brand recognized for their yoga wear and clothing line designed to inspire women and girls to reach their full potential. Andrea received her bachelor’s degree in International Politics and English Literature from Queens University in 1999 and her master’s degree in Media from the London School of Economics in 2001 - graduating at the very top of her class at both schools. After graduating college, she began working with IDEO, Omada Health, and, later, held a seat on the Board of Advisors for the German company, Unu Motors.

Today, Andrea shares how to incorporate creativity into your business and the power of failure. She explains the critical nature of maintaining a “beginner’s mind” despite your level of success and how to find the advantages lurking within unexpected situations. She also shares her thoughts on personal branding and why she thinks you shouldn’t focus on building your personal brand.

 

“A good idea is doomed to be a good idea forever, but a bad idea has the chance to be great.” - Andrea Mallard

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How her childhood shaped her character as a leader.
  • The importance of maintaining a beginner’s mindset despite your level of success.
  • Her “lost year” experience and why she considers it as one of the best and most important years of her life.
  • The importance of being deliberate in your choices and decisions throughout your life and career.
  • How to turn unexpected situations into your secret weapon.
  • Building credibility based on your self-awareness.
  • How she maintains resilience through challenging situations or experiences.
  • How to let go of the fear of other people criticizing you.
  • Using your failures as a valuable learning tool.
  • The importance of owning your mistakes and sharing them with others.
  • How sharing her mistakes and being vulnerable has impacted her team’s performance
  • The fundamental problem of creating a distinction between analytical thought processes and creative thought processes.
  • The power of being assertive.
  • What inspired her to start working with Athleta.
  • Fundamental business lessons she has learned.
  • Why she believes the first six months are critical as a leader in a new organization.
  • Why she doesn’t believe in building your personal brand - and what you should do instead.

 

Andrea Mallard’s Top 3 Success Strategies for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  1. Seek and give feedback and build trust with the people you are working with.
  2. Have a sense of humor.
  3. Always be willing to go the extra mile. Build to think. Don’t stay too long in strategy. Roll up your sleeves to create something just to help you think through it.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “You need to take the time to have a beginner’s mind. You need to start back at question zero, no matter what you’re doing, no matter how much you think you have empathy or intuition.” - Andrea Mallard
  • “Don’t worry about being perfect. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t be afraid to admit what you don’t know.” - Andrea Mallard
  • “People fail all the time. That suggests they are taking risks; they are working, they are pushing.” - Andrea Mallard

May 24, 2018

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.

Sramana Mitra is Founder of One Million by One Million, the first and only global virtual accelerator. She is the author of the Entrepreneur Journeys book series as well as the Vision India 2020 and Billion Dollar Unicorns books. As an entrepreneur and CEO, she successfully ran multiple businesses, including Intarka, DAIS Infotech, and Uuma, Inc. and holds a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT.

Sramana joins me today to explain what “unicorn businesses” are and why entrepreneurs need to stop chasing these unicorns. She shares the formula that she believes makes up a successful business, why over 99% of venture capital deals are typically rejected when seeking financing, and the parameters your business needs to meet to be considered a “fundable business.” She also explains the difference between a “real entrepreneur” and a “pseudo-entrepreneur” and why she believes smaller, profitable businesses should be celebrated.

 

“We are trying to create fortune in the middle of the pyramid. We do not believe that excess is a requirement for success.” - Sramana Mitra

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The impact that growing up in India had on her success and career.
  • What prompted her to start her current company.
  • Why over 99% of entrepreneurs seeking venture capital financing for their companies are rejected.
  • Factors that must be present to receive venture capital funding.
  • Challenges associated with presenting an alternative, controversial opinion and framework to venture capital funding.
  • How she helps entrepreneurs with funding announcements.
  • What are “unicorn businesses?”
  • How Silicon Valley’s views of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship have evolved over the years.
  • The difference between “real entrepreneurs” and “pseudo-entrepreneurs.”
  • Why technology is becoming an oligarchy and how it impacts entrepreneurs.
  • How she finds time to feed her intellectual appetite, analyze trends, and be a thought-leader.

 

Resources Mentioned:

  • Economist Magazine

 

Sramana Mitra’s Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  1. Surround yourself with smart people who are deep thinkers.
  2. Read publications that will give you a broad view of what is happening in the world.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Venture capital is an optional tool of building a business.”
  • “I think $500,000 a year is a success; $1-Million a year is a success; $2-Million a year is a success because all of those are really difficult to do.
  • “Building a business is very difficult to do. Building a profitable business is very difficult to do and whatever scale people are comfortable and successful doing it at needs to be celebrated.

Brilliant women like you are brave enough to create their own businesses, build an exceptional team, and have life-changing ideas they want to share with the world. Sadly, not all brilliant women are brave enough to speak in front of an audience or make their voice heard in a boardroom or show their capable and competent selves because of this genuine and crippling fear - the fear of being visible.

Today, I’m going to define visibility and share why many brilliant women struggle with it, and how having this fear negatively affects your career, business, and leadership presence. I’ll also explain how you can overcome it with smart, straightforward strategies so that you can peel away the self-doubt and start breathing life into your ideas by showing the powerful and authentic you.

If you want to make a strong impact in the world while doing the work you love, you need to build your personal brand. Many fierce leaders struggle with building their personal brand, so they turn to information on the internet or published books to seek tips and strategies that will help them create the brand they desire. Unfortunately, most of these tips and strategies are either outdated or ineffective.

On today’s episode, I’m discussing why you need to triple down on your personal brand this year and share effective strategies to help you elevate it, so it can open doors of opportunity for you and your business. I explain why your personal brand is the by-product of your daily actions and how to build your personal brand based on the things you already know and are doing. I also explain how your personal brand impacts your reputation and perceived value and how it can set you apart from your competitors - especially in a world of “information overload.”

 

“Your personal brand is a return on investment. It is not the lead indicator.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why you need to build a strong personal brand.
  • \How to build your personal brand by focusing on what you know and are doing already.
  • How your personal brand impacts your reputation and perceived value.
  • How building a strong personal brand can impact your business.
  • Why most information regarding building a personal brand is not effective.

 

Fierce Lead Strategies to Build Your Personal Brand:

  1. Adopt a mission that is bigger than you.
  2. Arm yourself with killer statistics about your area of focus.
  3. Take a galvanizing point of view. Have an opinion. Take a position.
  4. Master the art of public speaking.
  5. Be authentically unconventional.
  6. Execute quarterly, high impact initiatives.
  7. Cultivate your conviction.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Personal brand is the return on investment from being intentional about doing other things. It is the by-product.”
  • “In the world of work, success is not just about what you know. Nor is it about who you know. It is about who knows what you know.”
  • “When you build a strong personal brand, what you are essentially doing is elevating your reputation.”
