Hey lady loves! You know that feeling when you accomplish something you weren’t sure you could? Yea, we’ve been feeling like that the entire month of July! We launched our company and this blog a short, short time ago we are in awe of how much we’ve grown. What we’ve learned so far is that you have to trust your convictions, flip off fear, and just go for it. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. We’re hosting our second brunch in August and we have an all-star lineup of ladies who have done it, are still doing it, and are now sharing with our community the ways that they can too. Check out our panelist’s bios here.
“Why Not Me” was the spark that lit the fire that is now Boss Women Who Brunch. What are you waiting to unleash? How are planning on changing the world, or even your world as you know it?
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton made history by becoming the first woman presidential nominee. Regardless of where you stand politically, Hillary’s nomination is a win for women, all women. Win, lose, or draw, a door has been opened. Talk about an answer to “why not me!”
“I may become the first woman president, but one of you will be next.” – Hillary Clinton
Our goal is to help every woman ask herself, “why not me for the highest position in the land or in my company, or absolutely anything else I want. You’ve got next.
Good news! Getting what you want out of life, however you define it, is now easier than ever. Say what?!?
Yep you read that right. Ok, mostly right. We can’t make that promise but we think we’ve discovered the path of least resistance.
Here’s a personal example because we are all about transparency up in here. We both work full time jobs, and are full time wives, daughters, friends plus part time fitness enthusiasts. It’s tough building our dream, one brick at a time and balancing it all. But the key we’ve learned, is not trying to balance it all but getting hyper-focused on the people (people always come first) and activities that matter most. Everything else (including Instagram binges and weekly girls’ night outs) have to take a back seat. Because the truth is, we can have it all (that’s absolutely our plan) but we just can’t have it all right now. It’s a hard pill to swallow and it requires sacrifice but isn’t your goal worth it? If it isn’t you need a new goal.
Not sure what to let go? Check out this week’s resource, the Boss’ To Do List . Write down where you are spending your time (be honest about Facebook and Netflix). Are your activities more heavily weighted toward mindless activities that are taking you nowhere fast or are you moving toward the goal? Let go of all of the stuff that doesn’t matter and watch what happens.
