The Theme for October is...
Did you know that you’re a leader?
The fact that you’re a woman entrepreneur alone sets you apart. Women-owned businesses account for only 31% of companies in the United States, with rates ranging from 1.5% in Saudi Arabia to 35% in Uganda.
YOU are leading the way toward equal representation for women in entrepreneurship.
The fact that you’re able to decide the mission and vision for your business sets you apart. As an entrepreneur you have the ability to tap into your own power, purpose, and passion to choose the direction for your life and work.
YOU are proving that it’s possible to a create life and business that you love.
The fact that you’re able to choose your team sets your apart. You get to select the people and companies you work with, making sure they align with your deepest values.
YOU are building a generation of women who embody the spirit of community above all.
Together we are building stronger local communities, robust economies, and advancing the rights of all women. And in order to do that, we must own our seat at the table. We must become the best leaders we can, not only for our businesses today, but for the impact we hope to leave on this Earth.
As Sheryl Sandberg says, “Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence."
Now that’s something I think we can all get behind.
This month’s theme is LEADERSHIP, and I invite you to join me on this courageous voyage to become a better leader.
Wishing you a kickass start to October.
