Have you ever conducted a presentation knowing all-too-well that, that one presentation could be “the big one.” The one that could transform your business or career, open big new doors of opportunity, and really take things to the next level?

 

This happens a lot in the corporate world as well as the entrepreneurial world and how you handle these situations is the key to your success.

 

Many fierce female leaders find themselves “leading in fear” - the fear of owning the promise of their work. On today’s episode, I want to share why owning the promise of your work is critical to the success of your next presentation and how it can help you avoid stepping over big opportunities.

 

 

“As a leader, it’s your job to paint the vision.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How your success pivots on how well you convey your promise.
  • Owning the promise of your work isn’t the same as bragging
  • By not owning the promise of your work, you are engaging in a momentary lapse of leadership
  • The impact that owning your promise can have on your business, customers, and investors
  • How the promise of your work is the beating heart of your Million Dollar Message

Money is a form of currency - and a powerful form of energy. Having the right mindset around money and earning what you are worth is often difficult for many women entrepreneurs. My guest today is Denise Duffield Thomas. Denise is an award-winning speaker, author, and entrepreneur and the founder of Lucky Bitch where she helps women transform their economy class money mindset into a first-class life. Denise is passionate about helping women release their fear of money, set premium prices for their services, and take control of their finances.

 

She joins me today to share her journey into cultivating a powerful mindset around money. We discuss the common money blocks that hold women back from earning what they are truly worth and the link between financial empowerment and feminism.

 

“A healthy money mindset is not an absence of blocks or fears. It's about allowing yourself to receive money in ways that feel really good to you.” - Denise Duffield Thomas

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • What money blocks are and how they impact your life and business
  • How to identify money blocks
  • The link between money blocks and creating passive revenue in your business
  • Income-producing activities vs “busy work”
  • The connection between a lack of focus and money blocks
  • Creating a focus mantra
  • Creating boundaries - and sticking to them

 

How to Overcome Money Mindset Blocks:

 

  1. Become aware of your money blocks
  2. Track your income - and your freebies

Many different factors come into play when you launch a new business. From figuring out your marketing strategy and identifying your ideal clients to creating proposals, attending networking events, and staying current on your education and certification courses, there are many things you need to consider to make a successful impact in your industry.

One of the most critical factors that many new entrepreneurs often overlook is their message. Your message, and the way you deliver it, can be the determining factor that makes a client or organization decide whether to work with you.

On today’s episode, I want to share four easy steps you can take to create a powerful message for your business and help you overcome the “boring message syndrome” that often plagues many fierce feminine leaders and entrepreneurs.

 

“Great leaders - women of influence - are storytellers and excellent communicators.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How to identify if you have “boring message syndrome”
  • How to elegantly and persuasively get people to hear your message
  • Creating a compelling argument
  • Using case studies to tell a story and support a controlling idea
  • Showing what is possible by implementing ideas, methods, or messages

 

4 Parts of Complete and Persuasive Messages:

  1. Your controlling idea
  2. The details
  3. The stories
  4. The promise

What does playing big in your business or career mean to you? For some, it may mean swallowing your fear and starting a new business or accepting – or declining – a promotion. My guest today is women’s leadership expert, Tara Mohr. She is a passionate coach, speaker, and the creator of the Playing Big Leadership Program, which has gained recognition by many major media publications including Oprah.com, Fast Company, TEDx Women, The New York Times, and Time Magazine.

Tara joins me today to share her story, what inspired her to empower women to play a bigger game, and what motivated her to publish her book, Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead. She shares her insight on what causes women to play small, how to overcome those fears to achieve the success they deserve, and the inner work necessary for women to play a bigger game.

 

“Playing big is being more loyal to your dreams than your fears.” – Tara Mohr

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How limiting beliefs often prevent women from playing big and accomplishing big goals
  • The inner work required for women to accomplish their “outer work” goals
  • Common signs and expressions of playing small
  • How Tara’s own experience with crushing limiting beliefs and fears has impacted her career and enabled her to play a bigger game
  • Why it’s important for women to “unhook” from praise as well as criticism
  • How to maintain a steadiness of your soul and why it’s important

 

Tara’s Tips to Play a Bigger Game:

  1. Become aware of and manage your inner critic voice
  2. Access your inner mentor
  3. Unhook from praise and criticism

I’m delighted to be podcasting from beautiful London England where I’m having a wonderful time doing business, visiting my family, and speaking at a conference for entrepreneurs where the topic of income generation came up. We hear the call and we become business women, but when it comes to monetizing I notice that many women entrepreneurs feel guilty about making money. The subjects of helping women become fierce successful financial leaders and overcoming money blocks are subjects I have a deep fascination in. 

 

Do learned money rules or stories affect how you deal with finances? I come from a long line of economists and economizers and I learned a great deal from my parents who were trying to build a future with what little income they brought in. I was taught early on that there was a scarcity of money or that it would be here today and gone tomorrow so I learned that waste not want not was a valid money rule, but I also learned to be uncomfortable around money.

 

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you how learned money rules create blocks that interfere with your business success and your joy, and I talk about helping you break the chains holding you back from true financial freedom.

 

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

 

  1. How economizing and economy affected me as a young girl.
  2. How your money story will catch up to you in business.
  3. Common money blocks that hold you back.
  4. I share about how money blocks surfaced when I started my business.
  5. How I help you change your mindset so you can embrace money.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Reflect on your money stories and how they have affected you in your personal and business life and download your free Monthly Cash Calculator.
  • Give back to others and be a part of transforming the world into a softer, kinder, and nurturing place.

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.

Every day, we hear from women with incredible dreams. Dreams of achieving big things, big goals. Dreams of making an impact and connecting with thousands of people. The dream of doing more and making an impact on the world around you is a huge endeavor!

But what does it really take to achieve these big goals? What does it take to become the CEO of your company or to grow your business and become a speaker? What does it take to become one of the top 4-percent of powerhouse women leaders?

Last week, I was honored to share the stage with several powerhouse speakers, including Hillary Clinton and Rosario Dawson, at the Professional Business Women Association of California’s annual conference to talk about how the top 4-percent of women think. Today, I want to share with you some of the insight I have learned throughout my career of what it really takes to achieve the big goals in your professional career.

 

“The scope of your goals are in direct proportion to your willingness to do what is required to reach those goals.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The missing piece of the equation preventing you from achieving your big goals and dreams.
  • Determining your willingness to achieve your goals.
  • The qualities that the top 4-percent of women leaders have that allow them to achieve their goals.

 

4 Qualities of the Top 4% of Women Leaders:

  1. Intentional
  2. Commitment
  3. Willing to do the work
  4. Willing to make sacrifices

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Think about the goal that you say you want.
  • Ask yourself if you would still want that goal if it took three times as long to achieve it
  • Ask yourself if you would still want it if it took three times the sacrifice to achieve it.

As 2016 comes to a close, many fierce feminine leaders are starting to envision and plan what they want to accomplish in the upcoming year. Developing a strategy and action plan each year is a critical step to propelling your business forward, maintaining your already achieved momentum, and clearing a path so you can find your seat at the big tables.

Today, I want to share with you the types of people you should avoid in 2017. These are people who will inevitably derail your strategy to success, make you feel undervalued, self-conscious, and inhibit your performance.

 

For every hour you spend with a crazy-maker, you are going to spend about 5 to 10 hours paying for it.

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Women who execute well and get stuff done are more successful because they manage their state of mind well.
  • Your ‘state’ – or state of mind – is how you feel, manage, and react to how you are feeling from one moment to the next.
  • Limiting your exposure to negative people – the crazy-makers – will help improve your ‘state’.

 

5 Common Crazy-Maker Categories to Edit Out of Your Life in 2017:

  1. The ‘Red Alert’ People – Those people who are always afraid, always see pitfalls, dangers or threats and want you to be afraid, too.
  2. The “Undermining’ People – Those who are jealous or feel threatened by what you are doing. The people who make you feel self-conscious about yourself or your work. These people will curb your creativity, effectiveness, and your ability to get things done.
  3. The “Constructive Feedback” People – People who give you ‘constructive feedback’ when you didn’t ask for it – even when they don’t know what they are talking about or their feedback isn’t helpful.
  4. The “It Should Have Happened Yesterday” People – Those who lack the patience or don’t realize that it takes time to execute things properly.
  5. The “Stuck in a Rut” People – The people who have their own problems, but refuse to do their own work to make a change. Those people who talk about the same issues and problems repeatedly without taking action.

 

My Challenge To You:

Surround yourself with people that have a different opinion than you, but do not to spend too much time with the crazy-makers that will bring you down and derail your progress and success.

Many women struggle with self-confidence and courage – which often prevents them from achieving their true potential. Surrounding yourself with brave, courageous women is critically important as a fierce feminine leader and entrepreneur. It can help you step into your power and bring the best of who you are – unapologetically.

My guest today is powerhouse entrepreneur, Mandy Rennehan. Mandy is a blue-collar CEO and the founder of the retail construction company, FreshCo. FreshCo is the first and most successful full-service on call retail maintenance and construction company in the United States today. Mandy and her company have worked with countless retail giants including Tiffany & Co, Apple, NIKE, The Gap, Banana Republic, and Home Depot.

Mandy has been named as one of Canada’s top female entrepreneurs. Currently, she is one of the Women’s Executive Network’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women, Profit Magazine’s Top W100, and Atlantic Business Magazine’s Top 50 CEO’s. Additionally, she has been featured in the Globe & Mail, Financial Post, and the Business News Network. Today, she joins me to share how her experience as a talented athlete and 4-H member has helped shape who she is today. She also explains the impact that being herself and staying confident in her abilities has helped improve and grow her business to the highly-successful company that it is today.

 

“Women just need the permission to hear their voice and go after it.” – Mandy Rennehan

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How she got started in the construction industry
  • How changing the way she sourced people on her team became one of the biggest turning points in her career
  • How being herself helped her grow her business
  • Hiring team members that align with your personality, ambition, and work ethic
  • Making the shift from “do-er” to CEO
  • How confidence led her to winning her first $3-Million contract
  • Others relate to those who are unafraid

 

3 Critical Factors of Scaling a Business:

  1. Identify when you are ready to grow
  2. Ask yourself: Are you prepared to put time into other people, technology, and the results of growth
  3. Ask yourself: Are you prepared for what might happen

Courage is the fuel behind the fire of achieving major accomplishments for many fierce entrepreneurs. Without courage, it is nearly impossible to live out your purpose and to live a full, complete, and vibrant life. But all too often, we let our self-doubt get inside our head and overpower our courage – preventing us from achieving the amazing success we were destined for.

My guest today is Margie Warrell. Margie has been named by The Wall Street Journal as an international authority on courageous actions. She is the host of Raw Courage TV, an acclaimed keynote speaker and guest lecturer at Columbia and Georgetown Universities, and a certified Master Coach. She is also a highly sought-after expert commentator on several leading media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, Redbook, Psychology Today, Fox News, and the Today Show. Her insights on courage, leadership, and business have been shaped by her work and interviews with several highly-respected industry leaders including Richard Branson, Bill Marriott, and Cathy Calvin.

Margie joins me on the show today to share how courage has played a role in her own life and provide some courage-building tips. She shares her journey into the entrepreneurial world and how she built her incredible global business that has impacted thousands of people around the world.

 

“When we are comfortable, our muscles for life start to wither.” – Margie Warrell

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What inspired Margie to become the entrepreneur that she is today
  • How risk held her back early in her career
  • Looking at courage through the lens of risk
  • Listening to your inner voice before the “experts”
  • The importance of forging your own path, finding your own way, and trying different things
  • The benefits of building relationships and seizing opportunities
  • Understanding the sense of urgency and the importance of having patience
  • How her daily routines and “restorative rituals” help her protect and sustain a high level of energy

As highly ambitious women, striving to reach our goals, dreams, and meet the needs of our clients often leads us to striving for the near-impossible – perfection. Highly ambitious, professional women and female entrepreneurs often find themselves spending countless hours changing, tweaking, revising, and polishing our work – whether it’s that next blog post or the next big course we want to launch – before we finally put it out into the world.

This “perfection addiction” is a common issue for many new and experienced entrepreneurs as well as highly ambitious, successful professional women. Today, I want to share with you my 5 powerhouse strategies for coping with – and overcoming – the perfect addiction.

 

“Embrace the mantra that ‘done’ truly is better than ‘perfect’.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Overcoming the fear of “dropping the ball” when faced with the opportunity to scale and grow
  • Reconciling growth and ambition with perfection

 

5 Powerful Strategies to Cope with Perfection Addiction:

  1. Embrace constraints
  2. Embrace public accountability
  3. Release attachment to limiting relationships
  4. Find bold, imperfect role models
  5. Boss up, woman!

Whether we realize it or not, gender stereotypes and gender inequality often starts at an early age. In fact, if you have ever walked into a toy store or children’s clothing store, you may have seen this issue creeping up in the toys and clothes available for our young girls. My guest today is Jodi Bondi Norgaard, and she is on a mission to smash the gender stereotype that is currently trending in the toy industry – particularly with dolls.

Jodi is the founder and former owner of the Dream Big toy company – the company responsible for creating the Go! Go! Sports Girl line of dolls, books, and apps that encourage healthy and active play for girls. Today, she focuses her energy on speaking about issues regarding gender stereotypes, gender equality, and girl empowerment. On today’s episode, Jodi shares her experience and passion for educating others on gender stereotypes, her mission to empower young girls today to achieve their dreams beyond fashion, and shares what lead her to create a business around female empowerment.

 

“I feel so strongly about women rising to their full potential because we have so much to offer.” – Jodi Bondi Norgaard

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What inspired her to create a sports doll that encouraged girls to be physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy
  • The “process and puzzle” of starting a doll company
  • How she sold 500 Go! Go! Sports Girl dolls to the U.S. Open – and sold out within six days
  • Her experience with displaying her product at Toy Fair
  • Why she put her mission first – instead of her business revenue and growth
  • How working with Wal-Mart was the turning point for her business
  • The biggest lesson she has learned as an entrepreneur when selling her business

What makes you fascinating and intriguing to your clients, your customers, your business partners, and the people around you? Some of you may already be able to answer this question – and that is great! However, some of you may not realize the fascinating elements of yourself that make you intriguing to others. In fact, you may even believe there is nothing really fascinating about you at all.

My guest today, Sally Hogshead, is passionate about helping brands discover – or rediscover – what makes them fascinating to the people around them. Sally started her career in the advertising industry. In her early 20s, she skyrocketed to the top of the advertising profession and by the age of 24, she became the most award-winning advertising copywriter in the United States. She has worked on numerous advertising campaigns including Mini Cooper, Nike, Godiva Chocolate, and Coca Cola and her work has been displayed in the Smithsonian of American History.

By the age of 27, Sally opened her first advertising agency. Drawing on her remarkable branding legacy, she created The Fascination Advantage Assessment and wrote the book Fascinate: How to Make Your Brand Impossible to Resist. The Fascination Advantage Assessment is the first algorithm to measure how the world views personal brands.

Sally has appeared frequently on national news media – including NBC’s Today show and The New York Times. She joins me today to share why she created The Fascination Advantage Assessment, how it can help you identify what makes you and your brand fascinating, and how identifying what makes you fascinating can help you market your business with more authority.

 

“You are fascinating. You don’t have to change. Just find those qualities and do more of it.” – Sally Hogshead

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • We have all killed off parts of our authentic selves in favor of playing it safe
  • When you shut your authentic-self down – you are denying the world that “spark”
  • How The Fascination Advantage Assessment can help you rediscover your “spark”
  • How identifying how you are different and what you do best can help you develop and improve how you market your brand

 

Sally’s Advice to Fierce Feminine Leaders:

The world is not changed by people who sort of care. The world is changed by people who passionately, irrationally, excitedly care. It is changed by you. In order to do that, you have to know how the world sees you. Once you know how the world sees you – it’s game on!

Mansplainers. Ladies, you know what they are – even if you’ve never heard the term. Mansplaining is a blend of the words “man” and “explaining.” Its when you are explaining something to someone – most often a man to a woman – in such a way that is condescending or patronizing.

Today’s episode is all about the mansplainer. As you listen to today’s show, I want you to ask yourself: “Am I a mansplainer?”

Mansplaining has become a commonality throughout our lives and cultures. In fact, research has shown that female doctors are twice as likely to be interrupted by their patients as male doctors. Until recently, mansplaining has affected primarily women, but today, the tables are beginning to shift as more and more women begin to assert themselves professionally.

So, how do you know if you are a mansplainer?

 

5 Signs You Are A Mansplainer

  1. You lack the self-awareness to recognize – even after you’ve learned the description – whether or not you are a manslplainer. (For example: you’ve heard my description of a mansplainer, and still haven’t asked yourself if you fall into this description.)
  2. You automatically think you know more than women and it is your place to mentor, guide, and advise them? #HeresYourSign
  3. You frequently interrupt women on a regular basis.
  4. Women around you are not coming to you with their thoughts and ideas.
  5. You don’t ask many – if any – open-ended questions.

Starting over in our businesses or careers is often one of the least-thought-about aspects that many powerhouse professionals ever consider. In fact, once you get into your “stride” and begin reaping the rewards of your hard-earned success, the thought of starting over may never come to mind – unless you are forced to face it.

My guest today is an award-winning entrepreneur, Yasmina Azhari. Yasmina is the Founder, Owner, and General Manager of Mira Trading, LLC, the Vice President and Partner of Trade Coordination Office, and the founder of her newest company, Al Yam International Commercial Brokers. She has been recognized as one of the Top Entrepreneurs in Syria and is the Honorary Council of the Netherlands in Syria. This powerhouse businesswoman and entrepreneur built a highly successful career for herself – until her country broke out into a civil war, forcing her to flee the country and seek safety in another country where she decided to pick up the pieces of her amazing career and start all over.

Today, Yasmina shares her story of starting her entrepreneurial journey over, what it was like, and what motivated her to continue moving forward to achieve success once again. She also shares some valuable insight and tips on how to reinvent yourself – or your career path – as an entrepreneur to achieve success.

 

“Try and fail, but never fail to try.” – Yasmina Azhari

Going through a challenging, potentially life-destroying situation is never easy. No know knows this better than my guest, Jas Boothe, founder of the non-profit organization – Final Salute Inc – for homeless female veterans. Jas is an Army Reserves veteran with 17 years of military experience as well as a cancer survivor. She has been recognized by Oprah Winfrey, People Magazine, and CNN for her work within her organization.

Jas joins me on the show today to share her story of overcoming some of the biggest challenges in her life – including being discharged from the military, being diagnosed with an aggressive form of head, neck, and throat cancer, as well as losing her home during Hurricane Katrina. She explains how these experiences motivated her to start her organization and dedicate herself to helping over 2,000 female military veterans each year find safe, suitable housing.

 

“I realized no one was RSVP-ing to my pity party.” – Jas Boothe

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Coping with a devastating cancer diagnosis after losing her new home to Hurricane Katrina
  • Finding motivation to change the outcome of her situation – and the situations of others
  • The birth of Final Salute Inc and its mission to serve the women who have served
  • Services and programs available to homeless female veterans and their children
  • What it was like to talk with Oprah
  • How she transformed the leadership skills she learned as a soldier to become a successful business woman

How do you get from where you are in business to where you want to be? What are the keys to leveling up in your business and creating the path that leads to the success you envisioned for yourself, your business, and your career?

Today, I’m talking with Joy Chudacoff. Joy is a highly-acclaimed, sought-after business strategist for female entrepreneurs. She primarily works with already established and successful female business owners that are looking for ways to reach their next level of success, but aren’t quite sure what their next steps should be to get them there. She is the leader for Business Lifestyle Design for Women and has been an entrepreneur for over 20 years.

Joy is the founder of a business consultant company called Smart Women, Smart Solutions, and for the last 12 years, she has been serving women as a professional, certified coach and consultant. On today’s episode, she shares with us what it is that keeps women from achieving their million-dollar goals and the different strategies they need to help push them to achieve that goal. She explains that the strategies you used to get you to where you are today may not help you reach your next level of success – and the key areas you need to focus on to help you reach your success goals.

 

“What got you here won’t take you there.” Joy Chudacoff

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The process and mindset of taking the leap from the entrepreneur maverick role into the CEO role as a woman
  • Joy’s entrepreneurial journey
  • The most significant turning point in Joy’s coaching business
  • Examples of how keeping your message and what you offer consistent and how it can help lead you to success
  • Strategy vs intuition
  • Being able to delegate – not micromanage
  • Falling in love with your numbers
  • Being decisive and overcoming perfectionism and analysis paralysis to help you reach your goals

 

Key Numbers Women Entrepreneurs Should Monitor Daily, Weekly, and Monthly

  • Your sales numbers
  • Your cost per sale
  • Your expenses

 

Joy’s Strategy for Creating Success:

  1. Ask yourself: What am I pretending not to know?
  2. Stay clear on what is absolutely necessary and essential for you to do every day.
