Why Working With Other Women Can Help Your Career

There has been a number of articles bombarding the blogosphere about women being bullies to other women in the workplace. However, some business owners are discovering that women working together with other women is a recipe for a successful business.

Girls Just Wanna Work for Themselves

There’s an interesting phenomenon happening among working women.

Women of all backgrounds and ages are tired of showing up to work and being a “cog in the machine.” They’re tired of being overlooked by their fellow colleagues or being ignored in meetings. They’re tired of “leaning in” when no one will lean out to listen to them.

So what are these working women doing to solve the problem? Apparently, they’re turning into CEOs of their own companies.

Dream-killing stories and how to vanquish them.

 

When I tell people I quit my job to start my own tech company (as a former social worker, with no experience building software), I get a range of reactions: they’re incredulous, they ask about my finances, and they ask whether I am terrified on a daily basis.

Fear was my go-to reason for not leaving social work. So what changed?

Email Is Not Your Master

A few years ago I was asked to speak on a panel of female entrepreneurs to discuss our journey into the world of business ownership. At the same time, I had committed to what I called “The Year of No.” 

As you guessed, the Year of No was about saying no to all of the ridiculous things that I had being saying yes to. Things that were sucking my time and attention or generally just made me grumpy: coffee dates, pick your brain dates, actual dates, no fun friends, networking events, listening to voicemails, and yes, EMAIL.

To Do or To Find Out?

Do you find that your to do list just turns into a bunch of questions? 
 
When I would start getting overwhelmed with work, in a fury I would do a huge brain dump on a legal pad. All of the things that I just had to get done in an effort to get it out of my head and organized. What ended up happening more often than not was that my to-do list would have more questions on it than to-dos. 
 
To-dos are actions, not questions.

Pokemon Go Is Your Competitor

Right now, I’m in Bentonville, AR visiting my mom and taking in the GORGEOUS scenery. Wow, it’s pretty here. Walking along one of the amazing trails over the weekend, I saw some deer, a beautiful stream and a lot of people with their heads in their phones playing Pokemon Go.
 
NATURE can’t even compete with this new game.
