An interesting point was mentioned during my last episode while interviewing Vicki Saunders, the founder of SheEO. She said that women are not asking for help in their businesses – that many women feel they need to do everything on their own in order to be, or feel, successful and accomplished. In reality, though, it is incredibly hard to do everything on your own without asking for help and developing a team.

In this episode, I want to share some tips with you on five ways you can ask for help, and three ways you can ask in the right way.

5 Ways You Can Ask for Help:

  1. Ask for Introductions
  • An introduction is a powerful pre-framing technique in terms of positioning and allowing you to gain access to that person’s network.
  1. Ask People to Spread the Word Through Their Social Media Networks
  • Ninja Move Tip: When asking people to spread the word through their social media platforms, give them an image and some text they can use to promote.
  1. Ask for Advice
  • A wise woman once said, “When you ask for money, you get advice. When you ask for advice, you get money.”
  1. Have a Focus Group or Advisory Board
  2. Interview People

3 Tips on How To Ask for Help In the Right Way

  1. Be Mindful of a Person’s Time
  • Follow the 10-minute rule: “Hey, can we chat for about 10 minutes on the phone? I really need some advice.”
  1. Know What You Want
  • Having a clear picture of what you want and how it fits into your business’ “bigger picture” will help others help and collaborate with you easier and more efficiently.
  1. Have a Beginner’s Mindset
  • Maintain a balance between being open to information and closing down the information so you can implement.

“The most dangerous thing that can happen to a leader is that she begins to cut herself off from information” – Eleanor Beaton

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.

Jennifer Gillivan is the president and CEO of the IWK Health Center foundation. She has vast experience with philanthropy, partnership strategy, marketing, and of course, leadership. She was born and educated in Dublin, Ireland and migrated to Canada in 1982 where she eventually worked for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and would later receive the CBC English Television Award for Pioneer Work.

Jennifer’s career started out rocky as an immigrant but on hindsight, she said the rough road she took was actually the perfect environment for her to build what would become a successful career.

In today’s episode, Jennifer will tell us just how to make the female voice heard in a male-dominated society and become a dominant presence inside the boardroom without coming out as arrogant and egoistic.

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Why not being good in school doesn’t mean you won’t be successful in real life
  • Selling a concept and an idea to strangers by being genuinely curious
  • How to become a generous listener and how you can use that when it comes to marketing your ideas
  • You’ll learn the importance of where your values lie and why your career growth depends on it.
  • Why the biggest hurdles you may face are the challenges and opportunities that work against your values
  • How to know where your values lie
  • Jennifer’s definition of “Owning your ambition”
  • The importance of promoting yourself and your successes
  • Why where you sit in the boardroom as well as the gestures you do matter
  • You’ll know why asking someone to explain it to you in a way that you can understand is not a sign of weakness.
  • Talking not for the sake of talking but for the sake of contribution
  • Jennifer’s own 3 success tips on becoming a successful female entrepreneur

Jennifer’s Words of Wisdom

  • “Spending the time understanding your essence, who you truly are and what your values are, where your lines are is probably the smartest piece of homework in any part of your life and specially your career.”
  • “Elbows in, be in the room and people will remember you in the room.”
  • “Nobody can value you better than you, nobody can treat you better than you treat yourself. How you treat yourself is how you teach others to treat you.”

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.

Taylor Swift is probably one of the most successful celebrities in the world today and I’d like to think she owes her success to her squad. That’s right, her group of powerful femme fatales isn’t just for display, girls. No, Taylor chose them for a reason and today’s show will highlight the importance of forming your own squad to become successful.

 

 

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

 

  • Taylor Swift’s career skyrocketed when she formed her squad as she transitioned from country to mainstream pop. Many country fans got disappointed but her current success was definitely worth the transition.
  • It is important to surround yourself with people who are where you want to be, who will support not just who you are today but also your past as well as the person you are becoming.
  • The right squad is the most important thing when it comes to supportive relationships.
  • Your income or success is dependent on the people you spend most of your time with.
  • Loneliness is as harmful to health as smoking.
  • Find time for friends and building relationships despite having a busy business or career, they are the sustenance to keep you going.
  • A squad is a wedge and it’s powerful enough to overcome fear and doubt when chasing your dreams.
  • A good squad is made up of like-minded friends who are independent in their own way, knows what you’re going through, understands your transformation, and will always love and support you through it all.
  • A squad is helpful when it comes to controversial choices in your life, important to your wellbeing when pursuing ambition, and is able to shove a wedge in the door of opportunity.

 

 

My Invitation To You!

 

Put yourself into situations and environments where you are going to have an opportunity to be around this type of squad. To help you with that, I want you to check out my upcoming Fierce Feminine Leadership live intensive. It’s a face-to-face, 3-day life changing retreat for ambitious women in business.

 

You will have an opportunity to be part of a tribe of smart and positive women who get it and will be there to support you in achieving your life goals. It will be held at Hockley Valley Resort in Toronto on November 18 to 20 2016.

 

If you're ready to make some big things happen for yourself, if you're ready to say yes to yourself and prioritize your big success and not just the needs of other people, head on over to the Fierce Feminine Leadership Intensive website and register!

On the Fierce Feminine Leadership podcast, we often talk about ways to step into and claim your power. Claiming your power is incredibly important to become successful in your business or organization, but what if you’re ready to pivot from the corporate world into the entrepreneurial world? What do you do if your professional history is filled with a lot of experience across multiple industries or your resume shows several different – and unrelated – skillsets? How do you make the pivot? Today’s guest, Pamela Slim, is an award-winning author, speaker, and entrepreneur and innovative thinker with a passion for helping people make sense of their professional background, pivot from the corporate world into the entrepreneurial one, and tell their story in a way that makes sense to potential clients and customers.

Pamela is the founder of K’é, a small business incubator space located in Mesa, Arizona and the former director of training and development at Barclay’s Global Investors. In the first 10 years of business, she worked as a consultant to many large companies including Hewitt Packard and Charles Schwab before pivoting her focus on helping small businesses launch and grow. She has been quoted in numerous publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Forbes, and The Entrepreneur.

Today, she shares her story, insight, and tips on why it is critical for small business entrepreneurs to identify and claim their body of work.

 

“If you don’t view yourself as the hero of your own story, how will you tell a credible story to someone else?” Pamela Slim

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Who is Pamela Slim and why is she so passionate about helping small business entrepreneurs?
  • How did she build a significant online presence?
  • What was the most significant turning point in her business since pivoting to helping small business owners?
  • What is the New World of Work and what skills will you need to help you succeed?

As a coach, I have had the opportunity to work with many great women leaders in business. The most exciting part about working with these highly skilled, motivated, thought-leading women is listening to their dreams, what is possible for them, their desires, and what they want to build. But, where there is sunshine – rain clouds sometimes follow. And in my career, the rain clouds come when we get down to their fears – what they are afraid of and is preventing them from accomplishing their goals.

Most of us are dealing with the same fears.

Today, we’re going to talk about one of the biggest fears disrupting the success of many fierce feminine leaders – the fear of giving yourself permission to go for what you want.

 

The only thing standing between the life you dream about and the life you have is an invisible gate you need to pass through. Open the gate.

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • The number one fear preventing high-potential women in business is the fear of giving themselves permission to go for their dreams.
  • Women often are not nearly as confused as they think they are.
  • You may feel like you know what you want, but are unsure of whether it is practical, realistic, or achievable. You may feel crazy for wanting what you want – but you’re not!
  • The keys to unlocking opportunity’s gate is in your pocket. Give yourself permission to walk through it.

 

My Challenge for You:

You walked down the road on your own two feet. You arrived at the gate and saw the life on the other side. You created the vision. Give yourself permission to walk through the gate.

Welcome back, fierce tribe! On Friday, we discussed how you can work less and earn more through negotiating what you want in a warm and firm way. Today, I am joined by Knightsbridge Robertson Surette’s partner and my dear friend April Howe. April has 15 years of consulting and coaching experience, has played an instrumental role in the development of Knightsbridge Robertson Surette’s career transition and HR consulting practice, and works as an instructor in various business schools. She serves on the board of several organizations, including the one that we serve together – The Black Business Initiative – which aids in fostering a dynamic black presence within the business community.

She joins me on the show to discuss how you can claim and hold your power at the big tables and shares her interesting stories about how she learned to step into her power and negotiate for what she wants. She also shares her interesting insight on female diversity in leadership roles and offers powerful tips and advice that you can use to claim your power at the negotiation tables.

You have two choices. To show up like you belong there, or show up like you don’t.

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • April shares her diverse background and how she got started in her industry.
  • She explains how losing her job lead her to her current line of work.
  • She talks about what she does now to help organizations through the transitioning period of a humane termination processes.
  • She shares her opinion on whether the cliché “when one door closes, another one opens” is true for people transitioning from corporate careers into entrepreneurship.
  • We talk about best practices for entrepreneurs needing to downsize their business.
  • Research shows that inauthenticity is mentally exhausting and can impair a person’s cognitive function.
  • She explains why she is a huge advocate for women entrepreneurs to find a mentor.
  • She offers tips on preparing for contract negotiations.
  • We talk about what diverse women can do to position themselves as elite female leaders.

 

Tips for Owning Your Power During a Negotiation:

  • Stop asking yourself “if I can” and start asking “how can I.”
  • Get your head into the “I belong here” space.
  • Believe your authenticity is

Today, fierce ones, I’m talking about money. I’m talking about freedom. I’m talking about money and freedom and how money can create more freedom for you beyond merely unknotting time constraints. Money has a way of freeing emotional burdens. What emotional burdens? Money helps you spend more quality time with the people you love. Money helps you achieve your dreams – perhaps you’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii. Money helps you find financial, and emotional, freedom.

That’s why on today’s episode, I want to talk to you about how to work less and earn more.

Let’s dive in!

 

When we own our worth, claim our value, and hold our power in negotiations, profound things can happen.

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Women often work more and earn less because we feel we have to prove our value. We feel we aren’t entitled to ask for more money.
  • Research shows that when it comes to money and time – women don’t negotiate.
  • Too many women put off the internal work we need to do to communicate and negotiate for more money.
  • Women are powerful negotiators – with themselves.

 

Do you do any of the following?

  • Convince yourself that you need to prove your worth before asking for more money.
  • Tell yourself that you need to be better, achieve more, or that you are lacking experience or skills to ask for more money.
  • Tell yourself that efforts are rewarded.

 

Two Powerful Negotiating Rules to Always Follow:

  1. Remind yourself that you are 100% enough exactly the way you are.
  2. Stop negotiating with yourself. Now.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Completely absorb the two rules of negotiating.
  • Tell yourself “I am enough!”
  • Pay attention to when you are negotiating with yourself.
  • Ask for what you want.

 

Are you ready to be more courageous, focused and FIERCE this Fall?

Are you interested in stepping into the Fall season with more courage, more focus, more direction and more fierceness? Are you ready to ramp up your business or make more money within your organization?

We’d love to help you!

Do you plan out your work week? Do you take the time to sit down and plan out your activities for each day of the week, or do you fly by the seat of your pants, keeping a mental check list or buying enough Post-It Notes that you should really consider taking up stock in the company?

I’m frequently asked about what my weekly schedule looks like. As many of you wonderfully fierce ladies know, I have two kids, a husband, some pets to take care of as well as my own health to take care of and a business to run. We drop three podcast episodes each and every week, have a full roster of clients, and I run group coaching programs. Plus, I frequently speak and present at events all over the world. We definitely have a lot going on!

Today I want to share with you what I do to keep it all together – keep it all straight in my mind. Sometimes it can be incredibly powerful and insightful to have the opportunity to peek behind the curtain of other people’s business and schedules – to see what the “pros” are doing to keep everything on track without sacrificing their health or free time.

So, grab a cup of coffee, my fierce ones. Prop your feet up and get comfortable as we dive into how I schedule my busy week, and how you can do the same!

 

If you are a business owner, you have a lot of hats to wear! It is critical that you wear them all.

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • A breakdown of my day-to-day home life routine consists of from about 5 a.m.
  • How I schedule my week to include every aspect of being a CEO of a company, leading team members, handling sales and marketing, as well as fulfillment and administrative tasks.

 

My Weekly Schedule:

  • On Mondays – Mondays are entirely dedicated to my leadership role within my organization. This is when we have our weekly team meetings, team trainings, and set targets and goals for the week based on our monthly goal plans.
  • On Tuesdays – I typically spend about a day to a day and a half taking care of sales tasks.
  • On Wednesdays – Wednesdays are my marketing days. It’s when I look at our “Big Picture Marketing Strategy” and start executing different things from that plan.
  • Thursdays and Fridays – These are my fulfillment days. This is when I am coaching my clients and leading group coaching programs. This is when me and my team are fulfilling the work our wonderful clients have hired us to do!
  • I also spend about half a day throughout the week taking care of administrative tasks – getting with our accounting team, etc.

One of the biggest career-limiting factors affecting women in business and in the workplace is gender bias – whether done consciously or unconsciously. And although times have changed over the last several decades, the types of gender bias situations that women often face is now much more insidious and harder to spot.

Today on the show, I’m chatting with gender bias experts Andie Kramer and Al Harris. Andie and Al are adjunct professors at North Western University School of Law, both experts in their respective fields of law, as well as experts in communication techniques women can use to overcome gender bias.

Andie is a partner in the international law firm McDermott, Will, and Emory where she heads the firm’s products, training, and derivatives group. She is a nationally recognized authority on gender communications, has mentored thousands of women on the subject, as well as written several articles on the topic of gender bias. She has co-authored the article What You Need To Know About Negotiating Compensation for the American Bar Association’s Guide and she is the co-founder of the organization Women’s Leadership & Mentoring Alliance where she currently serves as the organization’s Chair of the Board. Andie was named one of the 50 most influential women lawyers in America by the National Law Journal, has received the prestigious Gender Diversity Lawyer of 2014 Award from Chambers USA, and she is the Chair Amerida for the Chicago Foundation for Women

Al is the founding partner of the Chicago law firm Angaretti and Harris, which is now part of Nixon Peabody, LLC. While with Angaretti and Harris, he was the firm’s managing partner numerous times, has served on their executive and compensation committee as a member, and was the Head of Corporate and Securities Practice Group. Currently, in addition to being an adjunct professor at North Western University of Law, Al sits on the Board of Directors of a billion-dollar technology corporation and has served as a mentor, coach, and counselor to many successful women in business.

They join us today to share their thoughts and insights into how women can use various communication techniques and strategies to overcome gender biasness in the workplace, to enable them to be the shining star we all know they can be.

 

“If you can’t get acknowledge, it is much better to be seen as strong and forceful than weak, timid, and modest.” – Al Harris

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • What inspired them to take a stand against gender bias.
  • How women “buy-into” gender stereotypes when it comes to presenting themselves for compensation and promotion purposes.
  • What are some gender stereotypes many women buy into?
  • What subtle gender stereotypes may often be overlooked in the workplace and how can it limit a woman’s career?
  • How can women effectively manage home and work life integration.
  • How domestic responsibilities divided evenly between spouses or significant others can positively impact both professional careers.
  • What do women in powerful career positions all have in common that the rest of the female leadership population can learn from?
  • What is the “Goldilocks Dilemma”
  • Al and Andie’s thoughts on the idea of “fixing the women” versus “system reform.”

 

Practical Strategies & Tips for Women to Break Through Gender Bias at Work:

  • Maintain a strong posture – body language.
  • Stand up while talking to command attention.
  • Claim your fair share of space.
  • Claim your ideas.
  • Claim your ability to speak.
  • Support other women in meetings.
  • Stand your ground and stick up for yourself.

 

Al and Andie’s Powerful Advice for Women in Business:

  • Remember the Goldilocks Dilemma.
  • Recognize you can’t change who you are, but you can’t be either too soft or too hard. Find a way to reach into parts of yourself that will be most effective in the situation you are in to get it just right.
  • Likability and perfection is overrated. Reach for the stars, even if it means you land on your butt.

When opportunity comes knocking on your door… what do you do? Do you weigh the pros and cons of accepting that new position or working on that new project? Or do you immediately say ‘Sure, I’ll try that!’ My guest today has worked her way up through the leadership ranks throughout her career by never turning down a challenge. Christine Nigro, Vice-Chairwoman of AXA Advisors, LLC and Managing Director for AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company based in New York, joins me today to give you powerful advice on climbing the leadership ladder toward career success.

She shares her story about how she never turned down an opportunity, even when she knew she didn’t check all of the qualification boxes to complete a new project or accept a new job – and in doing so, she explains how her “never say no to a challenge” motto has helped her advance her career far beyond the norm. She shares practical advice on what you can do to help grow your networking team, find people willing to sponsor and vouch for your skills, as well as how to speak up in a board room meeting when you don’t agree with something being said without coming off too aggressively to your co-workers and peers.

“When presented with an opportunity to learn something, don’t worry about where it will take you in your career. Just take the opportunity.” – Christine Nigro

  • Why she believes women should focus on things they are good at.
  • Why she believes it’s important to identify the people who can help you.

  • How critical was it for her to be in an operational role and why we don’t see more women accepting these roles?

 

Christine’s 3 Practical Tips for Being Assertive Without Being Aggressive:

  1. State your concern in the form of a question.
  2. Be willing to “wear some labels.”
  3. Allow people to have some of the culture they grew up with.

 

Christine’s Top 3 Pieces of Advice:

  1. You really have to like what you are doing.
  2. Let your natural competitiveness out and allow it to be seen by others.

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.

 

Are you a mansplainer?

 

My Invitation To You!

Are you working within an organization or feeling stuck or stagnate in your career and know you are capable of so much more? Are you an entrepreneur know that you’re playing small, could be charging more for your work or know you are a thought-leader in your space and are struggling to get your message “out there?”

Not long ago, as I was watching T.V., I saw a cartoon of a tiny little caterpillar that was transforming into a beautiful butterfly. As the butterfly emerged from its cocoon and looked around at his caterpillar friends, he noticed the look on their faces – the look of “oh.. you’ve changed.”

The other little caterpillars were jealous of the butterfly’s beauty.

As I watched this cartoon, I began to remember one of the most powerful lessons I learned from Oprah Winfrey:

 

“People will support you until you exceed their expectations of you.”

 

Oprah was right. People you know – and even those you don’t – will tend to support your efforts, be your best cheerleader, until they realize that you have exceeded all of their expectations; until you become truly successful.

That’s when jealousy sets in.

Today on the show, I want to share a story with you – one that I have personally been through and now realize that – Oprah was right.

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • One of the fundamental fears women have is fear of rejection – that someone will “boot us out” of the tribe.
  • Fear of success is far more powerful than fear of failure
  • You have to give yourself permission to shine as brightly as you can so that you can give true support to those around you.
  • Some people may feel threatened by your power and success. Some friendships and relationships may be lost along the way. But there’s a huge tribe of fierce, powerful leaders waiting, with open arms, to help you and cheer you on every step of the way!

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Give yourself permission to shine as brightly as you want to.

I recently shared the stage with one of the most brilliant, inspirational women leadership entrepreneurs, Dr. Monikah Ogando. Dr. Ogando and I shared the stage at the Global Wealth Leaders Live convention in Atlanta, GA, and I was so impressed and inspired by her thoughts, ideas, and presence – I just had to ask her to talk to my fiercely feminine leader tribe.

Dr. Monikah Ogando is the CEO of the firm CEOMastery, an organization dedicated to helping organizational leaders, solopreneurs, and consultants leverage their assets and create explosive growth. On today’s show, she shares her story, her insight, into what she’s currently seeing in the women in business industry, where she believes it is headed, and what traits women are bringing to the tables today that are helping to change the world of work and business. She shares her powerful tips, strategies, and advice for women thought-leaders and female leaders within organizations to help them step into their power, realize their potential, and overcome imposter syndrome in order to pave the path to a successful career or business.

 

“The journey to entrepreneurship and leadership is one of reinvention. Just because you think you’ve hit rock bottom, it doesn’t mean it’s the final call.” – Dr. Monikah Ogando

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Monikah shares her incredible story of how she made one bold move early in her career with a company by not signing an intellectual property agreement form which resulted in helping her launch her successful career.
  • Her top three success strategies that got her on the Inc. 500 list – with only two full-time employees.
  • Three questions she always asks herself after every event, task, or business project.
  • Why it is important to be ruthlessly, brutally honest with yourself.
  • Why you should quantify your value to your client’s bottom line and how doing so can impact your success.
  • Why she feels one of her biggest turning points in her business was “owning her spiritual foundation.”
  • What changes she sees women bringing to the world of work and business that inspires her the most.
  • Some of the biggest challenges she has seen from women in business and where imposter syndrome fits into the mix.
  • What practices she maintains in order to continually perform at a high level.
  • What’s next in her business?

 

3 Questions Dr. Monikah Always Asks Herself – And You Should, Too:

  • What has worked?
  • What hasn’t worked?
  • What was missing?

Did you know, there is a single strategy that you can use to help you take quantum leaps in your business and career?

This single strategy has helped one entrepreneurs that I know increase her yearly sales by as much as $75,000. This same strategy is what has helped position our previous podcast guest, Charles Chang, as an expert in his field and helped significantly boost his company’s growth in a very short period of time.

But… this strategy takes courage. It takes guts. Ladies, it takes a serious pair of ovaries!

I’m talking about thought-leadership and preeminence.

So, how do you position yourself as a preeminent thought-leader in your industry, your business, or your career?

On today’s episode, I want to share with you the exact strategy that I have taught several of my clients – as well as one that I have used myself – to position themselves as a preeminent thought leader in their niche, their industry, and their specific area of expertise.

So, grab your cup of coffee or tea, sit back and relax, and let’s dive right in!

 

Positioning yourself as a preeminent thought-leader can help you take quantum leaps in your business and career – Eleanor Beaton

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Preeminence is positioning yourself as a thought-leader in your specific area of expertise.
  • It can help you create quantum leaps of you, whether you’re an entrepreneur or working within an organization and advancing your career
  • It’s about understanding that when you own, value, and share what you know and approach your work with the mindset that you’re in it to serve, educate, and contribute – you are without competition.
  • There are several key components to preeminence – the first, and most challenging one, is having the courage.
  • There are two big challenges to the preeminence strategy
  • There are many tactics you can use to position yourself into a preeminence position

 

Key Components to Preeminence:

  • Having the courage
  • Really knowing your stuff
  • Doing the inner work to give yourself permission and be a believable expert in your field
  • Creating a platform that allows you to demonstrate your expertise
  • Educate, serve, and show up as a person of intense value for your people or organization

Tunnel-vision. It is one of the biggest obstacles many successful women in business face. And, not just women – men also become so highly focused on their niche, industry, or job function that they are unable to see the value in other people’s insight.

The small plant-based nutritional supplement product company grew rapidly and in 2015, Charles sold the company to White Wave Foods for a cool $550-million dollars. Shortly after selling his company, he decided to give the Simon Frazier University it’s largest gift ever - $10-million to found the Charles Chang Institute for Entrepreneurship. The institute provides training for students of all disciplines, not only in business, so they can learn more about and receive a certification in innovation and entrepreneurship. He is also the founder of Lyra Growth Partners, a company that provides capital and coaching services to emerging consumer brands that are looking to create explosive growth in the marketplace.

Charles joins me on the show to share his insight, wisdom, experience, and advice with my Fierce Feminine Tribe and share his strategies of success that has helped him quickly and successfully grow his business.

“If we have the ability, we should also have the responsibility.” – Charles Chang

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Charles explains how he got started as an entrepreneur.
  • He explains how he created Vega.
  • He explains what he feels were his top, core skills in growing his company.
  • He talks about the challenges he faced financially while growing the company from the ground up in its early stages.
  • He tells us how long it took him from self-investing in the business to a period of where it became profitable.
  • He talks about his strategies and whether they evolved over time or were based on “trial and error.”
  • He explains how he was able to find or create a work/life balance that worked for him and his family.
  • He explains why he decided to help other entrepreneurial-minded individuals and why doing so was significantly important to him.
  • He talks about what Lyra Growth Partners is and how he helps other entrepreneurs.

 

Charles’ Powerful Advice for FFL Entrepreneurs & Intra-preneurs:

  • Personal accountability
  • Set goals like you mean it and really go after them
  • Internalize – look for internal reinforcement instead of external.
