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.

  • 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.

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.

We all have those moments – the moments in our business that totally frustrate us, drive us crazy, or burn us at our core. Minor – and major – frustrating moments happen periodically in our business. They are completely unavoidable events, but how you handle them and use them to improve yourself, your business, and impact the world around you is important and within your control.

Today, I want to share with you some tips on how you can glean information from those frustrating moments in your life and business as well as how to make these moments your best friend while growing your business.

“Frustration is completely inevitable, but frustration is also a source of some incredible information.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Coping with “mini-failures” and using them as a source of information
  • How to use pain points in your business to discover your next steps
  • Using your frustrations to map your forward momentum

Are there things in your life, business, or career that you want to achieve, but require you to step out of your comfort zone? You know what you need to do, but you’re not comfortable with doing it – so you don’t.

When we get right down to it – most of us have the same desires. We want to be financially secure, healthy, and have great relationships with those around us, but what really makes us unique are the challenges that we face and the difficulties we are willing to deal with.

Ladies, it’s time for a little tough love. Today, I want to talk to you about the importance of picking your pain – and doing it wisely.

 

All too often, it’s not the scale of our dreams that undoes us. It’s the pain that we choose.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why women often don’t step out of their comfort zone.
  • Common ways women avoid leaving their comfort zone to achieve their desires.
  • Going after what you want won’t be painless, but can often be more rewarding.

What are your “wins?” If you are like many of the fierce feminine leaders that I coach, mentor, and teach – you probably answer that question by starting with: “Well, this isn’t much of a win, but…” or, “I’m not really good at this, but…”

Does that sound like you?

On today’s episode, I want to talk to you about the things that many ambitious women say about themselves and how they “show up” in today’s modern business world. After all, the way you show up, the things you say about yourself, and the confidence you have about yourself and your accomplishments is often the lasting impression that other people remember about you.

 

Diminishing ourselves can become an unfortunate habit that reinforces itself.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Showing up authentically and with power
  • The difference between being dishonest with yourself about your abilities and being intentional about how you show up to others
  • The power of being confident in yourself, your abilities, and your accomplishments

What are the three most powerful skills a female leader in business needs to succeed in a highly competitive, male-dominant industry? Ulrike Bahr-Gedalia is a powerhouse female STEM leader and the President and CEO of the organization, Digital Nova Scotia – a nonprofit organization that helps develop digital technology throughout the Canadian region. Her organization is making some serious waves in their growth and impact on the digital economy as well as profiling and supporting women in the digital sector.

Ulrike’s career spans 5 geographic regions and she’s a multi-lingual, award-winning entrepreneur who has been named one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women for two consecutive years, a WCT Wave Maker, a Top 50 CEO by the Atlantic Business Magazine, as well as one of the 40 Top Change Makers in Canada by Canadian Living. She has also received the esteemed Progress Women’s Excellent Award.

Ulrike has over 20 years of global experience in the information and communications technology industry and on today’s episode, she shares her story of how she went from a background in artistry to one of the most successful female leaders in the digital technology industries. She also shares the top three most powerful skills she believes every female leader needs to truly succeed in business, in life, in order to shatter the glass ceiling, overcome gender bias, and pave the way for true gender equality and diversity.

 

“Entrepreneurship is an attitude and a mindset.” – Ulrike Bahr-Gedalia

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The three key elements of successful female leaders
  • Having a natural tendency to confront and conquer challenges
  • Assessing yourself – honestly and frequently – and the impact it can have on you as a leader
  • Handling feedback
  • Reframing big challenges as opportunities
  • Overcoming gender bias

 

Ulrike’s Advice to Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  • If you see something that you feel is too big for you – it might not be too big. Just go for it.
  • Find your way. Always learn and interact with people to understand and ask questions.
  • Don’t take things personally.

 

Ulrike’s Top 3 Success Tips to Emerging Feminine Leaders:

  1. Have a positive attitude.
  2. Be authentic. Be yourself.
  3. Be adaptable. Those that are most adaptable survive – not those that are most intelligent.

In episode 151 of the Fierce Feminine Leadership podcast, Amy Jo Kim provided powerful insight from the game design industry on ways you can create innovative ideas and turn them into highly successful products and services. During the conversation, the idea of “killing your darlings” came up numerous times as well as why it’s important to evaluate, assess, and let go of the things that are not working for your project, business, or organization.

Today, I want to discuss what it means to “kill your darlings” and why taking this step is often one of the hardest for many entrepreneurs and female leaders. I also want to share the positive impact that letting go of what’s not working can have on your business or organization once you get past the emotional aspect of “killing your baby” and begin pruning it to perfection as well as share some key questions you should ask to help identify what is working, what’s not working, and what your next steps should be.

When you’re willing to kill off the darlings to preserve the body of strength of your work, you will find that not only do you develop a deeper sense of confidence, but your relationship with your tribe and overall effectiveness is greatly enhanced.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The emotional aspect of killing your darlings
  • Why it’s important to prune what’s not working to make room for things that work
  • Utilizing feedback from “fussy” clients and customers

 

3 “Darling Killing” Questions You Should Be Asking:

  1. What should you keep doing because it’s working?
  2. What should you stop doing because it is not working?
  3. What should you start doing because it would be even more helpful?

Have you ever thought about how your clothes impact your self-esteem and the way you feel? Whether you are stepping out on a stage to give a presentation to a massive audience, dressing for success for a day at the office, or you’re wearing your “comfy clothes” while running the kids to soccer practice, your style and the clothes you wear have an impact on the way you feel about yourself, your success, and how you present yourself to the world.

On today’s episode, my guest is personal stylist Maegan Watson. Maegan is a dear friend and colleague of mine and the founder of Watson Style Group – a group dedicated to creating wardrobes that help people feel the way they want and love the way they look. She has over 10 years of experience helping women transform their wardrobes and put an end to the seemingly unending question: “What should I wear today?” Maegan shares her thoughts on how style is different from fashion and the insights she has learned from conducting hundreds of in-depth conversations and interviews with women about their style and how it affects their overall view of themselves and how they feel.

                                                                                               

“When we have a wardrobe or an outfit that reminds us of what we want, they become an anchor.” – Maegan Watson

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Style is creating the image that is going to make you know yourself on a deeper level.
  • All women want the same things when it comes to style – they all want to be able to reflect something about themselves.
  • Reflecting your personal and professional mission through your style and wardrobe.
  • Addressing the idea that style is frivolous or meaningless and why it’s important.
  • The process Maegan uses to personalize wardrobes for her clients.
  • The dynamic approach her team uses to support her clients wardrobe transformations.

 

Maegan’s Tips for Enhancing Your Style:

  • Stop focusing on how you look. Focus on how you feel in outfits.

In fact, statistics have shown that over the last 20 years, the growth rate of non-employer businesses in the United States has grown by a whopping 62%! Payroll jobs, however, have only grown by about 12%. More and more people around the world are realizing the shaky ground that is occurring throughout “traditional employment” and deciding to take action and take their fate into their own hands.

On today’s episode of Fierce Feminine Leadership...

It took less than 2 years for CEO and Founder of BikiniLuxe, Candice Galek to  parlay her experience as a swimsuit model into a thriving multimillion dollar online swimwear business. What started as a tiny startup on her living room table in Miami Beach, FL  is now  a global powerhouse business with a team of 40 members worldwide and quarter million social media followers.

From the onset of BikiniLuxe, Candice realized she needed to leverage her wealth of knowledge about the swimsuit industry as well as the connections she had made during her modeling career to get BikiniLuxe off the ground. That coupled with her strong skillset in sales and customer relations laid the foundation for her success.

More about BikiniLuxe

  • They sell over 4000 swimwear products for women and men through the site.
  • Most of the brands represented on the site have demonstrated a corporate social responsibility in which they give back to the community.
  • Entering into their third year they’ll hit $5 million in sales.

Candice’s Advice to Entrepreneurs...

  • Be open to new ideas and push the boundaries
  • Leverage your connections to gain legitimate information and to gain new connections
  • When making connections make the highest connection you can possibly reach.
  • Don’t spend too much time on one thing.- pitch 20 people rather than spending a lot of time on one person
  • Look to large scale businesses to see what they are doing wrong and try and do it better
  • Be persistent
  • “Don’t spend your time or money on being boring.”

 

Candice on embracing controversy and being galvanizing in expressing your views.

  • Attention spans are short- people are one click away from scrolling by you and your content. Controversy can help keep people focused on you and your message. 
  • Controversy can be leveraged into massive social media reach.

Don’t wait for confidence to take your next steps. Make the commitment to the best version of you and to make the changes you want to make so you can ultimately create the life, career, impact and significance that you desire.

On this Episode of Fierce Feminine Leadership...

When it comes to creating the success that you crave, many women let themselves down by not executing on the little things day in and day out that will ultimately make a difference. 

  • The little things are what can hold you back from success in your business
  • You wake up every day with choices. Will you say “yes” to an invitation to speak at an event? Will you ask for the sale?
  • Each day you are faced with moments where you can lean in to the challenge, and take a small step.
  • You mustn’t listen to the voice inside you that says it is too hard or too much work. If you do, the big things will not happen for you.

Remember…

If you have big dreams and big goals, you MUST take the small consistent daily risks required to get yourself a seat at the big tables. It’s the emails and calls that you have to execute if you want to achieve your BIG GOALS this year. It is the COURAGE you must have in the moment to keep showing up. 

If you show up for the little things, the big things will take care of themselves.

 

Final thoughts... 

If you execute on just a few simple shifts or small changes, you can add thousands of dollars to your revenue. To be successful you must be confident in yourself and be confident in the shifts you are making.

If you want to alter your trajectory for your business an career through major changes, stop worrying so much on the big things and focus instead on the little moments throughout the day that will make a difference.

On this Episode of Fierce Feminine Leadership……

The most powerful opportunities in your career are most likely to be coming from your connections. In a study of thousands of senior women, done by the LeanIn Organization and McKinsey & Co., they discovered that senior women actually attributed most of their career advancement to their connections. The research also showed that women have far fewer ties to influential people than men.

Rather than networking across or down as most women do, women need to cultivate powerful ties to senior, powerful, influential and well-connected people.   

Networking can be an incredible tool to help you build or advance your career if done correctly.   

 

Networking 101

Spend 10-20% of your time developing powerful relationships. Powerhouse women understand that their success is not just what they can do personally, but their success is derived from their delivery system.

Show up at networking events ready to connect with others as everyday people. Talk to them about experiences that shaped you as a person or even your vacation plans. This allows the conversation to be interesting and be about more than just work.

Triage is the name of the game. Powerhouse women research the event formats that they are going to attend and prioritize events that offer plenty of mingling. They are not just showing up to see a speaker, they are showing up to mingle and network with other people at the event.

Do your research! Find out who is going to be at the event and even do some research a head of time to find out what they do and more about their company. This will put you in a powerful and knowledgeable position.

Ask for the contact information from the ppl you want to connect with most.

Keep in touch with people. The last thing you want to do is lose that connection.

 

Final Remarks

Networking is one of the most powerful and important things you can take part in. Networking allows you to have meaningful connections and find people within organizations that can benefit you and your life. Keeping in touch with those connections is vital for your future, as you may need to call on one of your relationships for something one day.

Today on Fierce Feminine Leadership……

Whether you are in a job interview or pitching for a new piece of business, chances are high that this year you are going to spend a lot of time in “critical conversations”. Today, I am going to share with 3 tips on how to handle a situation when you are in a critical conversation and someone catches you off guard with a question or comment.

 

3 Tips To Try When You Are Caught Off Guard……

Tip #1 Remember, this is not a “speak when you are spoken too” situation. You get to chose if you keep your power, or if you give it away. Yes, someone has asked you a question but that doesn’t mean you need to answer them right away, and it doesn’t mean that you need to come up with a brilliant answer. You have every right to take some time, to think it through before offering a response.

Tip #2 Watch your thoughts. Take a moment to acknowledge the thing that has surprised you with a simple comment. This allows you to engage but has still given you a little bit of breathing space in that moment. If you are in a situation where someone is expecting a quick response, simply say “thank you so much, can you give me about 30 minutes to gather my thoughts and get back to you?”.

Tip #3 PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE being caught off guard. It will make you so much more comfortable in the moment, and will actually make you less likely to be caught off guard.

Our partners play a very important role in our lives. We value their support more than anyone else in the world. It’s natural to feel this way and I have observed that many women in business expect their partners to give them 100% support with everything they do. This is where things usually go wrong.

One of our podcast subscribers reached out to me recently with this very dilemma. She wanted to know why the people whom we love hate what we do and most importantly, what to do when you find yourself in this situation.

In today’s episode, I'm going to share 5 coping strategies you can use when your biggest love doesn’t love your biggest idea. Stick around to the end of the podcast and I’ll even throw in 1 extra tip that is sure to help you develop a stronger relationship with your partner and boost your confidence to persevere with your dream.

The biggest problems happen when we run away from pain.

 

Key Points from today’s Fierce Feminine Podcast:

  • Don’t run away from the pain. Take the time to sit down and really feel your emotions. This is the first step to mastering your emotions.
  • Your partner cannot and will not be 100% supportive of you through everything that you do. The sooner you wrap your mind around this, the easier it is to deal with the hurt that come with being rejected by your loved one.
  • Your partner’s feedback is a subjective expression of his/her feelings and not necessarily an objective view of your plan. Listen to your partner’s opinion and learn to take the feedback constructively.
  • It is important to surround yourself with other people who can support you and help you grow.

5 Strategies to Cope when Your Biggest Love Doesn’t Love Your Biggest Idea

  1. Feel the pain.
  2. Examine your thoughts.
  3. Respect your partner’s feedback.
  4. Continue to explore and nurture your idea without the need for external approval.
  5. Talk to your partner.

writer of the new Netflix Originals hit series – OA – lead an interesting career journey. After graduating from Georgetown University, Brit Marling carved a path to become an investment banker at Goldman Sachs. She quickly realized, though, that she was setting herself up for a career she didn’t want.

Lead actress and screen

She decided to pivot her career and move into the acting arena. Frustrated by the lack of roles for actresses wanting to play complex, 3-dimensional characters, she decided to learn to become a screenwriter. That’s when her career became hugely successful!

Her success is packed with valuable lessons for every woman in business that is looking for a way to redefine their success and power. In today’s episode, I’m going to break down a few of the lessons we can take away from Brit’s successful career pivot.

 

You are the CEO of your own career. It goes down the way you say.”

  • Why you should stop waiting for other people or opportunities to come to you.
  • How investing in your own learning and development can significantly impact your success.
  • If you have grit and are able to be strategic, there are always ways to make your dream opportunity come true.
  • Why leveraging the connections in your network is critical.
  • A sense of urgency is important, but results require patience.

 

Top 5 Leadership Lessons from Actress Brit Marling:

  1. Create your own opportunities.
  2. Learn to sell your ideas.
  3. Don’t be afraid to pivot.
  4. Don’t forget about your older networks.
  5. Great work and success takes
