Did you know that the vast majority of “new and noteworthy” podcasts on Stitcher and iTunes are hosted by men? In fact, statistics from Stitcher regarding top podcasts, only about 10% are hosted by women, while 80% are hosted by men. Women listen to a lot of podcasts, webinars, and attend dozens of conferences, but statistics show that the majority of business professionals and leaders are actually using their voice as a vehicle to increase their sales, earn more money, and market their businesses. Women often struggle with finding and utilizing their voice as a means to improve their businesses for three reasons:
- We feel we don’t have anything to say.
- If we do have something to say, we often ask ourselves “why would anyone be willing to listen to what I have to say?”
- We are afraid of our own power.
Ladies, it’s time to step into your power, find you voice, and be more competitive with the male leaders in your industry.
Here are three strategies you can implement today to help you find your voice, step into your power, and be the Fierce Feminine Leader that I know you can be.
- Start Commenting on Blogs & Articles
- “Weigh-in” on articles and blogs you find interesting. Don’t just share those articles on Facebook and Twitter. Do both!
- Are you “internet shy,” or maybe commenting online just isn’t your thing? There’s an alternative! Send those articles that you find interesting to someone you admire. Tell them why you think it’s valuable and why you are sharing it with them. This serves two purposes – builds your network and helps you find and practice using your voice.
- Practice Your Voice at Conferences
- Every conference has a Q&A period. Use this time to practice using your voice and making it heard. Ask questions.
- Pay Closer Attention to the Material that Fascinates You
- Identify your “controlling idea.” Your controlling idea is your central area of focus. Identifying your controlling idea helps you become known for something, builds your expertise in a topic, and helps other people understand what you’re all about.
So, ladies, I challenge you this week to begin practicing these strategies to help you find your voice and become the Fierce Feminine Leader I know you can be!
