A GOOD BUSINESS REQUIRES VISIBILITYIt Needs You to Take Up Space, Get Seen, and Be Heard
Being a 'good' woman requires the exact opposite...
And therein lies the tension
Here's what I know
In order to succeed in business, we actually have to violate every single message that’s been poured into us about what it means to be a ‘good’ woman.
This is our Feminine Conditioning.
It creates resistance - even for the most confident among us. It can make us dim our light, muffle our voice, hedge our bets and tone down our message. Feminine conditioning creates subtle (and not so subtle) blocks that show up in self-silencing, self-doubting and playing smaller than we are.
But here’s a secret: You can leverage a lot of that feminine conditioning to be a really successful business owner & leader as well. So let’s do that.
What we do here
I help women build businesses that are sustainable, meaningful and a create a deep and positive impact on our world.
We tackle this feminine conditioning head on. We don't just push it aside and try to build your business without this context.
When we are coaches, our businesses are not external entities that we manipulate. Our businesses are ourselves. Therefore business growth is self-growth.
Here we do both.
We integrate business strategy, marketing, and aligned sales with self-development, growth, and personal actualization.
You need to let your brilliance shine out like a motherfucking supernova.
We live in a culture where women are conditioned to be a certain way - nice, small, compliant, thin, private, agreeable, non-controversial and certainly not the most brilliant one in the room. To build a coaching business you need to be visible, have an opinion, stand in your expertise, and own your capabilities.
Our culture doesn't make it easy
The thing is, it’s not that you’ve created a business that sells widgets. Your business is YOU. This is YOUR work in the world. People are engaging one on one and in groups with YOU. There isn’t any other way to make a separation.
Our businesses are ourselves
And so because of that, business development IS self-development.
When you’re developing your business you’re going to have to develop yourself. When you’re growing your business you’re going to have to take on the self-growth work.
Your business will only grow as fast as you do.
There’s nothing I’ve ever done (other than parenting) that's brought up my own ‘stuff’ more than building my own business. It's not for the faint hearted (but it's absolutely worth it)
Why this is different
My work has a container built into it, unlike other business coaching programs that just expect you to soldier through.
We do strategy to build your business AND the personal growth work that allows you to stand tall as a woman entrepreneur within a culture that wants you to stay small.
