4 Ideas to Unlock Success
In 2018 I had the honor of being one of the featured keynote speakers at the Motherhood ReWritten Conference. I was the only male speaker. I’m not going lie saying that when the opportunity first presented itself, all sorts of doubts surfaced around being good enough, why me, and what could I possibly say to empower women without sounding like a man talking at them?
One of the beautiful outcomes of speaking at the conference was being able to experience firsthand what happens when women who share a common vision come together. It was powerful.
Here is some wisdom from four woman entrepreneurs. Their messages and ideas will undoubtedly inspire and empower you to new heights!
1. Your Intuition Will Always Be Kind – It May Not Be Gentle
Jenn Beninger is the co-founder of Genius Unlocked Coaching Institute. She’s been an entrepreneur her entire life who’s built multiple 6-figure businesses and wants us to “lean into and trust our intuition more.”
She goes on to describe intuition as “a powerful force” and to “act on it with more confidence as opposed to dismissing it.”
“Your intuition will always be kind, it may not be gentle. Your inner child, inner voice, inner ego, are not always kind – they come out without permission and have a tendency to want to rule everything.”
“Your intuition has to be asked, it will not come out without permission.”
Have you checked in with your intuition lately? What is it telling you about your next most powerful steps?
2. You Are The Gift Someone Is Waiting For
Barbara Hoard is the founder of A Woman’s Essence, a comprehensive women’s empowerment workshop. She develops and leads training for women to feel safe to share their fears, doubts, dreams and to connect with other women.
“Women throughout history have truly been the cornerstone of the world. Women are strong, resilient, dynamic, creative, and all around go-getters. Inside every woman is this passion, an essence that she might not even know, but she feels something.”
“Don’t stop! It might look scary, and it’s OK. We as women have faced so many things and succeeded. Someone in this world is waiting for what you have to share.”
She goes on to address women entrepreneurs specifically:
“Help other women. You know the struggles, and you can be the one to grab her hand and lift her to the next level.”
3. Your Tribe Is Waiting For You
Kat Halushka is an international mentor, speaker, and coach and one of the women behind Million Dollar Sisterhood. Here’s what she had to say about being a woman entrepreneur:
“We tend to go by if you want something done, do it yourself!... Don’t show weakness, don’t cry… We’re trying to be so strong and trying to do everything at the same time on our own, all the time.”
“Boss Lady, Stop it! Go find yourself a tribe; a mentor, a coach, someone who can give you the shortcuts, so you don’t have to make your own mistakes.”
“Your tribe is there to support you. Whether it is with a question, or just to cry on their shoulder, you need people around you who you can go to.”
“Having a tribe makes business so much easier.”
She also adds, “Celebrating with someone is so much more fun than by yourself, trust me!”
I’ve personally witnessed Kat’s unprecedented growth this last year since she’s aligned herself with her tribe. What will you do next to find or create your tribe?
4. Go All In On Who You Are!
A serial entrepreneur, speaker, and the woman behind the Women Empower Expo (WEX), Alexa Carlin is on a mission to make a difference in at least one person’s life every single day.
Despite facing many ups and downs, including facing a one percent chance to live when she was 17, today, she is very clear on the path to success:
“Understand that there is enough room for all of us to be successful. Worry less about the how and focus more on the who. Who do you have to be to achieve that dream you want? When you go all in on who you are and incorporate your authenticity into your business, you will always be able to rise above the noise.”
What will become possible for you when you go all in?
Where is your tribe?
Who is waiting for you to show up for them?
When you tap into your intuition, what do you already know?
I know I will continue to learn from women in all areas of my life, from relationship to business.
Acknowledge and celebrate the women in your circle of influence and regularly invite them to share their wisdom with you. I’ll bet they will challenge you to the edge of your comfort zone, and as a result, create the opportunity for you to better understand yourself and your path to success.
