I highlight some common reasons why adversity is not only your best friend, but an incredible tool for deepening your leadership.

 5 Great Reasons Why Adversity Is Your Friend

  1. It deepens your ability to empathize with people. It gives you a much broader range of experience that you can then use to connect more effectively with your staff, colleagues, stake holders and customers.
  2. It gives you great stories. You must learn how to use these stories provide examples and illuminate your meaning. The three most important types of stories to note are: “to hell and back”, “reversal”, and “hero saga” stories.
  3. It deepens your grit and your resilience. Anybody can have a dream. Anybody can have a goal. It takes a woman with true grit and resilience to see it through. You build up that grit and resilience through experiencing adversity.
  4. It helps you attract better people into your life. Game recognizes game meaning if you’ve experienced adversity, you’ll connect with others who have as well.
  5. It helps you appreciate what you have. Sometimes it takes getting down on your luck or experiencing a health wake up call to help you appreciate what you already have.

 

Final Thoughts…...

If you are a fierce woman in business, adversity is your middle name. Understand that you can lean into adversity, see it for the gift that it is and embrace it. Make friends with adversity, because as long as you are trying, adversity is absolutely going to be a part of the journey and a part of the destination.

Today I am talking Desiree Adaway, the Principal Owner at the Adaway Group based in Nashville, North Carolina. She specializes in leading difficult conversations on race, class, and gender and building resilient, equitable and inclusive organizations. One of her prime success factors is the incredible skill she has for not caring with other people think of her.  Her purpose is to move the needle on diversity and inclusiveness inside organizations.

 

What you will learn

  • How to help create more diversity and inclusiveness inside your organization, and how to implement these changes.
  • How to test where your unconscious bias lay in your organization
  • You will hear Desiree challenge Eleanor how the assertion that Facebook algorithms are making it harder to have a good broad diverse range of conversations.

 

Takeaways

We need to change our vision of who is the definition of a leader -most organizations are still very bias towards gender, specifically white males.

Women in positions of leadership and power can help move the needle on inclusiveness by becoming mentors to other women, specifically women of color.

Some of the most common forms of unconscious bias are:

  • where we are posting our job openings
  • who are we hiring
  • how we look
  • and how we judge people by the institutions that they have attended

Recognizing your own biases is difficult. The Harvard Implicit Bias test can help. Sometimes you have to step away from a situation and ask yourself “where did that thought come from”, and learn how to handle a situation differently.

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.

On Todays Episode….. 

We’re discussing 5 “good girl” habits to break in order to unleash your true power as a leader. Ready to dive in? Let’s go: 

 

5 Good Girl Habits to Break 

Habit #1: Finishing your to-do list.  

As you advance, you will almost always have more complex tasks on your to-do list than you can possibly complete.  

Leadership is not about completing your to-do list, it is about deciding what on your to-do list you are going to bring the force of your attention to this day. 

Habit #2: Feeling the need to answer every question.  

She who asks the questions has control. If you are in a conversation and someone asks you a question that threatens to derail the conversation, consider responding with a question. 

Habit #3: Treating everyone equally.  

Triage your meeting requests according to those that line up most powerfully with your priorities. 

Habit #4: Respecting authority.  

Respect your own intentions, and self worth. 

Habit #5: Not playing hooky.  

Give yourself permission once and a while to play hooky. It will do wonders for your creativity. 

 

Helpful tips 

If you have another good girl habit that you want to break this year, I encourage you to let us know what it is. You can send us an email at eleanor@eleanorbeaton.com. While you are at it, I highly suggest that you head over to elearnobeaton.com/successpack and download my fierce success pack.

Feb 6, 2017

A pioneering entrepreneur, Ipelang Mkhari, founder and CEO of Motseng Investment Holdings, took a 20 year journey to become the successful and recognized woman she is today.

What does it take to build your career as an entrepreneur?

Discovery. Courage. Risk Taking. Sacrifice.

 

“Create a vision and make it so absolutely attractive that people want to kill to achieve that particular vision.” – Ipelang Mkhari

 

Moving Your Business from Version 1.0 – 2.0

  • Realize that you cannot do everything.
    • Be willing to let go.
  • Surround yourself with great people, hopefully people much smarter than you. That is critical.
    • Ensure the business has a corporate structure and foundation from HR, to IT, to finance.
  • Allow others to become strong leaders in your business or organization.
    • Make the people who work with you central to your business.
  • Create a culture of performance.
    • Treat individuals as individuals, while urging them on the journey of your vision.

 

Core to leadership is understanding what it is that you care for and being confident in pursuing that.

 

“It's a continual process to understand what it means to lead. Because you're not leading robots, you're leading individuals, you're leading human beings. They are feeling, thinking people. They have aspirations and goals. And so being able to impart or at least articulate and represent that which they want to become is critical.”

 

Top Three Pieces of Insight

  • Recognize Your Confidence.
  • Recognize the Importance of Training.
  • Recognize the Need for Sacrifice.

 

“We tend to believe that the people that we see on the cover of these magazines or women we see on television have not gone through difficulties, although we continue to go through difficulties … It couldn't be further from the truth. The reality is all of those women have had to really go through huge obstacles, they had to face their own fears, and they’ve had to take on challenges that are far larger than they are and with possibly a lot of trepidation.” – Ipelang Mkhari

 

Practices to Cultivate Courage

  • Establish a spiritual connection and tap into that source.
  • Surround yourself with advisors.
  • Find people travelling a similar journey and communicate openly and regularly with them.

 

“It's good to celebrate our successes but it's more important to celebrate the difficulties that we've encountered along the way because they're the ones that we learn from.” – Ipelang Mkhari

 

Two Most Important Steps to “Go Big” with Your Business

  • Get Great Consultants.
  • Get Great Sponsors – both financially and people who understand your industry.

5 “Alternative Facts” For Women In Business

I am just wrapping up a 3-day retreat with the beautiful and fierce members of our Bold Women in Business Mastermind. 3 days of intensive strategic planning, masterminding, sisterhood and just a touch of Malbec. FUN. Fun enough to make me reimagine a new term I learned this week, care of Kellyanne Conway: “alternative facts.” The term is both terrifying and hilarious. And I have decided to grab the term back.

5 alternative facts I’d like to share with you.

  1. An alternative fact to Imposter Syndrome: No dear, you actually ARE qualified to do this thing that you’ve worked so hard for. Your hard work, your dedication and the depth of your desire to do it well are what qualify you. It is only your quest for perfection that disqualifies you. So get over it. #Sorrynotsorry.
  2. An alternative fact to being confused: Sorry Fierce One, I won’t take that one lying down. You are in fact VERY clear on your vision and mission and you know exactly the right next step to take. But you have trained yourself to stop trusting YOU. So for a moment, trust in me and hear that after coaching many, many wonderful women I can tell you this: the wisdom and clarity you seek are inside you. But that wise creature? She’s a Queen, OK? And she never raises her voice. So listen hard.
  3. An alternative fact to waiting to have things perfect before you make a move: Good luck with that. When you’re over it ping me. We have a WHOLE HOST of fierce, action taking women who can’t wait to meet you.
  4. An alternative fact to thinking that if you don’t do it yourself then you’re incompetent/unqualified/weak: The very best work comes from teams of people working together. Please refer to the movie Hidden Figures for further evidence.
  5. An alternative fact to the desolate feeling dogging so many that this is a troubling time for women: Pink hats. January 21, 2017.

 

Feb 1, 2017

Happy February! It is Black History Month and we are focusing even more on promoting diversity and diverse women in leadership.

Interesting Facts

  • Black women are doing an incredible job on moving barriers and rising to the top.
  • Studies show that black women are 3 times more likely to aspire to positions of power and a prestigious title than white women or other races.
  • However, white women are twice as likely to attain said position of power and prestigious title.

What is Happening in the World?

  • Currently there are 20 women at the helm of those fortune 500 companies. (about 4%).
  • Once Ursula Burns, the CEO of Xerox leaves, there will be NO black women as leaders in the fortune 500 companies.

 

What We Can Do to Help

Even though black women have networks and support, they lack sponsors! One of the things that is critical is that if you want to reach the upper echelons of your ambition and reach the top levels in your business, you are going to need sponsors. The problem we are seeing in the world of business is that black women lack sponsors.

Sponsors are powerful well connected people, who talk about you and circulate your name, they unlock their networks to help you be more successful.

“Sponsors are like steroids for your growth trajectory”

 

My Challenge To You….

I would like to be a sponsor to aspiring black women in business. I am currently an advisor for the Visiting Women Executive Exchange Program at the Yale School of Management.

This program focuses on supporting diverse, especially African American, African Canadian women, into positions of senior leadership, in both the non-profit sector, the private sector, and in government.

We are running another cohort, and are looking for up and coming ambitious black women who would like to participate in this powerhouse program at the Yale School of Management. You will have access to the networks, the skills the resources that will help you reach the top.

If you know of a woman in your network who could benefit from a program like this and benefit from studying at the Yale School of Management, I invite you to have this person reach out to me personally at eleanor@eleanorbeaton.com. Please put “Yale” in the subject line, and I will respond to you as soon as I can with more information about the program.

Whether you’re thinking about starting an online business, you want to take your current business to the next level by selling your products or services online, or you’re ready to really step up your game, step into your power, and find more freedom through the power of online sales – there are many things you must consider. One of the first things, though, is creating powerhouse sales funnels that will work for you and help you reach your goals faster – and easier.

But – what is a sales funnel? How many funnels does your business need? How do you create these powerhouse funnels that will put your business on auto-pilot so you can focus less on generating sale and more on spending time with your family?

Stephanie Nickolich is recognized as “The Millionista Mentor”. She’s a successful business mentor and expert in building and scaling online businesses using sales funnels. Stephanie has been featured and recognized by the Huffington Post as one of the Top 50 Online Women Entrepreneurs to Watch by the Huffington Post, and has helped countless online entrepreneurs grow their businesses to the 6-figure income level by helping them identify and create the sales funnels they need to continually scale their businesses. She joins us today to share her insight on what the term “sales funnel” really means, how they can help you automate your business, and grow your income on auto-pilot.

 

“You cannot have a business beyond yourself without having a sales funnel in place.” – Stephanie Nickolich

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Stephanie shares her “Come to Jesus” moment and how it impacted her decision to pivot her career.
  • She explains how she helps entrepreneurs create businesses around the life they want to live instead of around the goals they want to achieve.
  • She explains what sales funnels are as well as how each funnel type differs depending on the products or services you want to launch.
  • We discuss the importance of implementing systems in your business to push your business to the next level without sacrificing your freedom.
  • She explains the difference between “cold leads,” “warm leads,” and “hot leads,” and why entrepreneurs should have funnels in place for each type of lead.
  • We discuss when you should consider outsourcing certain tasks or whether you should do them yourself.
  • She explains why she believes that if you’re doing something more than once within your business – you should create systems to automate the process.

 

3 Core Things New Entrepreneurs Need to Find Success Online:

  1. Patience
  2. Testing
  3. Paying attention to your numbers.

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.

“Let’s meet for coffee. I want to pick your brain about something.”

You oblige. You meet. Then, you quickly discover that what was supposed to be a simple chat over coffee has turned into a free consultation.

Does this situation seem familiar to you? You’re not alone. The request for free brain picks is rampant among successful women. Many women-in-business have expressed mixed feelings about these types of requests. Almost everyone I have talked to want to genuinely help by sharing their time, encouragement, and expertise, but are unable to do so because they are already maxed out.

In today’s episode, I will be sharing 5 tried and tested strategies on how you can handle requests for free brain picks with respect and care towards the person, while also protecting yourself in the process.

“Remember that NO is a complete sentence. No explanation, no apology required.”

 

Key Points from today’s Fierce Feminine Podcast:

  • While most women-in-business want to be helpful, they are unable to do so because they are maxed out. They want to use the spare time that they have, outside their business or careers, with family, friends, and for themselves.
  • Many women find it difficult to say no to brain picking meetings, because they know that it’s dangerous for a woman-in-business to be perceived as “not nice” or “unhelpful”.
  • Free “pick your brain” sessions are different from connection calls or networking meetings, because with the latter there is a clear win-win for both parties. With “pick your brain” sessions, the help is clearly going in one direction alone.
  • Networking is critical for your business. You need to spend enough time networking and this means that sometimes you will need to say no to requests, such as “pick your brain sessions”, to prioritize meetings that are crucial for your business.

5 Strategies to Say No to Free Brain Picks

  1. Send them to your free content.
  2. Thank them and connect them to the next step of your sales process.
  3. Tell them the next networking event that you will be attending and meet them there.
  4. Allot a specific time per month for “pick your brain meetings”.
  5. Just say NO.

When it comes to taking quantum leaps in growing your business or significantly advancing in your career – it’s not all about the amount of effort, hard work, dedication, or perseverance you provide your business or organization. These things do play a significant role, however it’s not the only thing that your business partners or your organizational leaders consider when it’s time to promote or open your business to new opportunities.

Effort, hard work, dedication, and perseverance can get our foot in the door, but it won’t get you to the front of the line.

So, what is it that can put you at the front of the line for that next promotion or the big speaking opportunity you’ve been dreaming about? In one word – sponsors – powerful, connected people within your organization or industry that can open the doors of opportunity for you.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you the difference between a mentor and a sponsor and how connecting with a sponsor can help you make the quantum leaps you desire in your business or career in 2017.

 

Sponsors are like the ladders in a game of Snakes and Ladders.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Research shows that women focus more on connecting with role models than connecting with sponsors.
  • What’s the difference between a mentor and a sponsor?
  • Sponsors are your allies – not your friend. You work together to help each other advance in your careers.
  • How to find a sponsor in your organization or industry to help you advance your business or career.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Find a sponsor.
  • Look beyond your mentors.
  • Remember: Sponsorship is earned.

Many high-achieving, highly-ambitious women find themselves frustrated with a gap in their market – something they know can be done better than what is currently available to the market today.

That’s why I created the Impact & Influence Leadership Lab for Women. This 6-week signature group coaching program was inspired out of my own frustration. A frustration of watching so many highly-ambitious, fierce feminine leaders working within large organizations or growing their own businesses, but lacking the confidence, influence, and presence they needed to really step into their power and advance their careers.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you why it is so important for women in business or corporate leadership roles to show up as confident, influential leaders. I’ll share how demonstrating your confidence and your ability to influence others can lead to career advancements, business growth, and opportunities you may have otherwise overlooked.

 

Influence, confidence, and the ability to stand out as an expert in your space is the best insurance you can have for growing your business or advancing your career.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Showing up as a confident competitor helps you gain the respect and credibility you deserve.
  • Women leaders need to be strategic in their networking skills to advance their careers and grow their businesses.
  • When you lack confidence, influence, and presence – you miss opportunities to grow as a female leader.
  • Why it’s important to engage in politics and how a lack of willingness to engage in politics can derail your career.
  • What you’ll get by registering for my Signature 6-week group coaching program.
  • How this program has helped other Fierce Feminine Leaders advance their careers, grow their businesses, and expand their network.

It’s inauguration week in the United States – the week when the new President of the United States is sworn into the Oval Office. As the soon-to-be former President and First Lady prepare to leave the White House, I think back on the many accomplishments this powerhouse couple have achieved over their 8-year tenure – particularly, Michelle Obama.

Despite whether you agree with her politics, or the politics of President Barak Obama, Michelle Obama’s career is filled with valuable leadership lessons for women in business. Today, I’m going to share with you some of the important lessons I have learned from simply observing how she has lead initiatives – from her work in combatting childhood obesity and supporting veterans to her powerful speeches during the 2011 election. By simply observing her career, we can learn many valuable lessons that can help us be more effective in any negotiation, in any boardroom, or in any speech we give throughout 2017.

 

When you have the room – allow yourself to own it.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Resist the urge to play small to gain the acceptance of others.
  • Remember: your career is a marathon – not a sprint.
  • When you are ready to step back into the game after a career hiatus – or are faced with a big, bold opportunity – leverage it for all it’s worth!
  • Fun and lightheartedness is a powerful tool to unite your team, drive great results, and ultimately create a knockout culture.
  • Authenticity, integrity, and hope are what characterized Michelle Obama’s tenure. Her values are what people will remember her for.

 

Top 5 Leadership Lessons from Michelle Obama:

  1. Don’t apologize for being confident.
  2. Embrace the times when your career must take a back seat.
  3. Know how to own the room.
  4. Fun is a powerful leadership skill.
  5. Know your values.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Sort out your relationship with your own personal power.
  • Decide when you need to allow your professional life to take a back seat to meet the needs of your family.
  • Know when to leverage great opportunities and allow yourself to own the room.
  • Create a fun, light-hearted working atmosphere.
  • Know your sense of certainty (and uncertainty).

My aunt – Linda Davies, former investment banker who moved on to become an internationally best-selling author of financial thrillers for adults and adventure story author for young adults, has been an amazingly Fierce Feminine Leader that I have looked up to as a young adult and entrepreneur. If you’ve listened to the Fierce Feminine Leadership podcast for a while, you may remember my interview with Linda in Episode 29, where she shared her story and we discussed taking risks in your life, your business, and your career.

Aunt Linda has taught me many valuable lessons. One of the most impactful lessons I have learned is how powerful the words I use to describe myself are, and why it’s important to be ruthlessly loving with the words you use to describe yourself.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you how to be ruthlessly loving with your words and how learning this skill can positively impact your mindset, your life, your business, and your career.

 

Your words are so powerful.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How the words you use to describe yourself, your business, or your career can impact your sense of achievement and success.
  • As a leader, it is critically important that you face the truth – but don’t undermine yourself with your own words.
  • Identify the difference between what is true and what your intentions are for improvement.
  • When you undermine yourself with your own words, you not only break trust with yourself – you also subtly erode the confidence that other people have in you.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Understand that your words are powerful.
  • Notice the words you use to describe yourself.
  • Reframe your words in a way that is resourceful and loving.

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

Welcome to the last episode of the Fierce Feminine Leadership podcast for 2016! As we wrap up the year, I want to discuss an important topic for you to think about as you are planning your 2017 path to success – gender bias. What is gender bias? Is it still alive and well in today’s working world?

Absolutely.

Unfortunately, despite the incredible strides women in business have made over the past several years, gender bias is still a major part of our work, culture, and society. The beast still lives and breathes – it’s just harder to spot.

Today, I’m going to talk about what gender bias looks like in today’s working society, and how, although things are getting better at the middle-management level – top-level positions within many organizations still have plenty of room for improvement.

 

“When the ‘solutions’ for a problem are the problem themselves – that’s how you know that gender bias is alive and well”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • In the upper echelons of power, things are not changing much for female leaders.
  • Gender bias has morphed into a nuanced phenomenon that has become harder to notice.
  • Women make up approximately 50% of Silicon Valley law firm associates – but only 17% of their equity partners.
  • Women make up only 4.6% of the CEOs of the S&P 500.
  • There’s been a lot of movement at the middle-leadership levels, but the number of women in senior management positions have hardly moved in over 20 years.
  • Women have the choice to build the skills they need to navigate the broken system. Don’t mistake this for a fixed

Dec 30, 2016

Over the course of the last several episodes, we have heavily discussed ways to help you take your business and career to the next level in 2017. Today, I want to discuss what the phrase “Work Smarter, Not Harder” really means so that you can plan your upcoming year down the right path toward success.

Working smarter doesn’t necessarily mean focusing exclusively on “doing the work.” Working hard is important, but there are other critical things you should consider and implement to truly make an impact in your community, your business, and your industry.

Today, I’m going to share the top 5 ways that many of the high-level, successful entrepreneurs and thought-leaders that I have worked with over the years have shared with me.

 

Ask yourself where you are in your genius zone.

 

5 Ways to Work Smarter in 2017:

  1. Leverage your competitive advantage – Identify and understand what your competitive advantage is – then leverage it as much as you can with great intention.
  2. Mediocre strategy, brilliant execution – Focus less on the strategy and more on the execution.
  3. Embrace today ­- The hunger to succeed is a good thing – it keeps you motivated to move forward, but it’s also important to remember that it’s okay to embrace the present. View today’s challenges as gifts and the gateway to reaching your next level of success.
  4. Develop your delivery system – Hard work is critical, but it also gets you more hard work. Your delivery mechanism is the basis of building up your pre-eminence and influence within your industry.
  5. Be Courageous – When you hold back information or an idea from other people, you’re being selfish. When you operate from a place of confidence and courage, you will work much smarter.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Ask yourself: What are you doing that feels easy for you; that is fun for you to do and you can do quickly? What are you good at that people keep asking you about?
  • Stay focused on decent strategies, but move quickly into acting and executing on those strategies.
  • Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
  • Don’t just keep your nose buried in doing the work. Work on building your delivery system.
  • Be courageous and share your ideas.

2016 was truly the year for Beyoncé. After all, who else can drop a music album the day after the Super Bowl without using any type of promotion? Not only that, she also became the first woman in history to chart 12 songs on the Hot 100 billboards at the same time, plus she is the only entertainer to be on the Forbes 50 Most Powerful Women in Business list!

That, my fierce friends, is how you kill it in your career!

Beyoncé is truly a fierce feminine leader and one without peer in the music and entertainment industry. But, what can we learn from her lady-boss skills to help us improve our own leadership skills and become the fierce lady-bosses we want to be in 2017?

Today, I’m going to share with you the top 5 boss lessons that every woman in business should learn from the Queen B herself!

 

Your brand is an asset & worth protecting and managing.

 

5 Boss-Lady Lessons from Beyoncé to Kill It in 2017:

  1. Get in the trenches – Don’t be just your company’s voice and figure for your brand. Be the CEO – the hands-on
  2. Embrace the Element of Surprise – Don’t wait for permission from others. Don’t lose your sense of “show-womanship.” Leverage the element of surprise to create enormous momentum.
  3. Build Influence – Understand the rules of the game. Find out who the power players in your industry are and get to know them. Build relationships – then you can change the game.
  4. Have a voice – Take a stance in things you strongly believe in. Use your influence to do the right thing.
  5. Manage perceptions – Think about your brand and the message you are conveying to others about your brand.

 

My Challenge to You:

Ask yourself:

  • Where do you need to be more engaged in your business or career to ensure you get the results you want?
  • Where can you leverage the element of surprise?
  • Who can you form a relationship with to begin building your influence?
  • Are there places where you are projecting or approaching something that are out of sync with your personal or business brand?

When you look at the thought-leaders, business owners, and entrepreneurs around the world that are making a huge impact on society, you may notice that they all share an uncanny ability to determine what is possible – not just what is logical or realistic. They have the unique ability to distort reality – in the right way. To make a big impact in today’s world – to be creative and innovative – entrepreneurs must be able to “think-outside-the-box.”

In previous episodes, we talked a lot about creating your 2017 goals and prosperity plans. Today, I want to share with you why it is critical that you – my fierce feminine leadership tribe – that you understand how to distort reality correctly to achieve your goals, dreams, and aspirations so they become possible and profitable.

 

The right way to distort reality is to believe that your dreams are possible.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • You need to think of things – not as they are – but as they could be.
  • Entrepreneurs have to have a certain level of reality distortion in order to create great things and take risks to make their dreams real.
  • Ignore the nay-sayers. Trust in yourself and your dreams.
  • The wrong way to distort reality is to grossly underestimate what it takes to get where you want to go.
  • If you want to create great results, you must be willing to invest the time and work it takes to get things done.

 

2 Rules of Reality Distortion:

  1. Believe your dreams are possible.
  2. Don’t underestimate what is required to achieve your dreams.

Creating a prosperity plan for your business is a key step in taking control over your time, revenue, and leadership abilities. A prosperity plan is also known as a cash planner, and you use it to help you track and plan your actual yearly revenue, plan and predict your projected annual revenue, and plan the activities you will need to achieve to help you reach those goals. A good prosperity plan also considers your personal goals, to help you have a sense of work-life balance.

As 2016 winds down, many entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, coaches, and consultants are thinking about and planning their goals for the upcoming year. My guest today, Maribel Jimenez, is known throughout her space as a “structures and systems queen.” She is a highly sought-after international speaker, best-selling author, and marketing mentor. Maribel is the founder of The New Superwoman community and her newest brand – Your Dream Launch – where she works with entrepreneurs, coaches, and consultants to teach them how to create 6- and 7-figure incomes through product and program launches.

Maribel joins us today to discuss the three fundamental aspects to creating a prosperity plan that works around your business and personal goals, and how it can help you create a Peaceful, Playful, and Prosperous business.

  2. Ensure that you plan for you Plan your vacations and self-care. Consider any family events and activities that you want to participate in. Develop a plan around your personal goals, putting yourself first.

It’s that time of year again! Time for fierce feminine leaders to take a step back and reflect on the year they have had in 2016. Time to make plans for the upcoming 2017 year, envisioning the big goals they want to achieve for their business or career and map out how they want to achieve those goals.

So, over the course of the next few episodes, I want to help you map out your success strategy for 2017 through a few “mini trainings” that will help you make 2017 your best, most productive year ever!

If you’ve listened to episode 101, you’ll remember that I shared how my fierce team and I was able to achieve all of our goals this year and the productivity secrets we used to get it all done – all while juggling our everyday life commitments and responsibilities.

Today, I want to share with you 5 tips we use to improve our commitment level to help us stay on task, stay motivated, and just get things done.

 

When it comes to integrity – your word is your bond.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Everyone has wishes for their business or career – but without commitment, it doesn’t evolve into an actionable goal.
  • Don’t live in a state of “wish-hood.” Create an action plan to turn that wish into a reality.
  • The difference between the ladies that make things happen and those who keep wishing things would happen – is commitment.
  • Commitment gives you purpose. It gives you something to drive toward.

 

5 Fierce Ways to Increase Your Commitment Level:

  1. Prune First – Make space for good things to happen. Take a close look at what is no longer serving you.
  2. Make Use of Visual Anchors – Visual reminders are a constant reminder of what you have committed to. They keep your goals at the forefront of your daily planning and strategy, making you more likely to achieve those goals.
  3. Make a Public Announcement – Telling people about your goals helps you become more committed to them and feel more accountable about fulfilling them.
  4. Take Decisive Action – Decide to make a significant investment in achieving your goals.
  5. Manage Your Thoughts – Especially the thoughts you have related to risk and fear.

One of the qualities that we consistently see in fierce feminine leaders is courage. The courage to step outside their comfort zone; the courage to build and create amazing content; and the courage to step into their leadership role and find and use their voice to make an impact on the world around them – through their life, their business, and their community.

My guest today is one of the most courageous women I have had the pleasure of meeting. Shade Adu is a female entrepreneur who was recently listed as one of the Top 50 Must Follow Entrepreneurs in 2017 by the Huffington Post. She is an empowerment speaker, brand strategist, and the founder of Savvy Consulting, LLC., a company that offers online branding services for women entrepreneurs.

She teaches entrepreneurs how to strategize and establish themselves as visible and credible online rock stars. On today’s episode, she is going to share some of her secret strategies that entrepreneurs can use to break out into the online community and get seen by their target audience. We’ll also discuss how she pivoted her business from offering life coaching services to becoming the Rockstar brand strategist that she is today, and she shares her valuable insight on what women entrepreneurs need to do to shift their mindset to grow their business and improve their income.

 

“Branding is an emotional experience that you create for your target audience.” – Shade Adu

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Shade’s story – how she started her business and what she does to help female entrepreneurs.
  • What hurdles and challenges she faced while transitioning her business from being a life coach to a brand strategist.
  • How the things you do and manage in your life can translate into work experience – and how you can leverage that experience to grow your business.
  • Why most people in business do not care about education and credentials – it’s about the results you can give them.
  • What you can learn from movie previews when you’re rebranding your business.

 

Shade Adu’s Branding Tips:

  1. You must know who you are.
  2. Get clear about your target market.
  3. Learn what your audience wants from you.

 

Shade Adu’s Top Success Factors:

  • Investing in coaching and mentorship.
  • Investing in help – hiring a team.

Dec 14, 2016

It’s mid-December and as we prepare for the upcoming holiday season, many of you successful women in business – myself included – are taking a few moments to reflect on what we accomplished throughout the 2016 year. This is the time to think about what worked well, what worked not-so-well, and what we want to do to propel our business into a successful start in 2017.

For my business, 2016 has been an amazing year packed with international traveling, keynote speaking, and running half-day and full-day workshops, and much, much more. My team has been phenomenal in helping me achieve these goals for this year.

But I’m frequently asked, “Eleanor, how do you get so much done?”

My answer to that is: The key ingredient is the ability to implement, execute, and just get things done.

So today, I’m taking a deep dive into exactly what fierce feminine leaders need to do to get things done; to achieve all their goals, aspirations, and yearly objectives and what it takes to really step into your power and take your seat at the big tables.

 

Fierce Feminine Leaders’ Top 10 Tips to Get Things Done:

  1. Protect Your Mental State – Don’t focus on hypothetical problems. Only focus on real
  2. Make Firm Commitments – Instead of talking or thinking about things, commit firmly to them and take action.
  3. Say “No” – A Lot – Your ability to cut off things so you can focus genuinely on a few things that are important to you is critical to your success and getting things done.
  4. Protect Your Mind – Surround yourself with people that are positive, self-aware, and uplifting.
  5. Reflect & Look Back – Take stock of the day – and week – that was. Take notice of the cumulative progress that you have made.
  6. Focus on High-Impact Outcomes – Instead of focusing on the “little projects,” identify the big vision and high-impact initiatives.
  7. Get “Okay” With Mistakes
  8. Adopt a Policy of Iterations – Don’t wait for something to be perfect before launching it.
  9. Delegate – Getting help and delegating tasks is critical to allowing you to get more done.
  10. Keep Things Fun

Are you a high performing women leader who might be standing in her own way and not seeing a professional or personal breakthrough? I’ve taken hundreds of clarity calls over the last couple years with women who have high potential, are high achieving, and looking for a breakthrough. You aren’t the only fierce woman entrepreneur who has something blocking their breakout result. As a coach, mentor and thought partner, one of the key things, as I do, is to reframe thought processes and perspectives so the indomitable women I coach make peace with the noise between their ears and accomplish what they aspire to do and be.  

Do you envision taking your seat at the table, fast tracking into the CEO spot, double your sales or make an enormous difference people’s lives? Do you want to create breakout results? On today’s episode, I enthusiastically encourage you to stay in a place of action, so you move forward and step out of your own way by reframing your beliefs. 

“We are as a group wealthy powerful and educated, so we have an immense opportunity, and if we are aware of it, we can use it for social good in 2017.”

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • I talk about office politics in our role as women leaders.
  • Why you need to get involved in office politics.
  • I tell you how the power players dip their toes into new areas and how they react to the unknown.
  • I share my interpretation of confidence as it relates to fierce feminine leaders.
  • You’ll hear my views on focusing on your ‘thing’ at the expense of other areas of business.
  • Why many women who leave the corporate world to become entrepreneurs never replace their corporate income.
  • I discuss what some high performing women struggle with.
  • I give you advice on privilege as I interpret it.

Top 5 Reframes for 2017:

  1. Reframe politics to diplomacy.
  2. Reframe confidence to courage.
  3. Reframe business to sales.
  4. Reframe clarity to next step.
  5. Reframe must get to get to.
