Bad Ass Business Day

October 24, 2014

Business Advice for Women Entrepreneurs


As I lay on my exercise mat at 5:30 a.m. having just finished the last of a four week intensive Jillian Michaels workout series, I heard her say, “You are a bad ass for finishing this work out and you are going to make it a bad ass day.” I chuckled with the remaining breathe I had – which wasn’t much – loving her descriptive. I don’t believe I’ve used a swear word in the years of writing my popular blog but I must admit I was inspired today to use that one!

This morning was one of those mornings. I woke up with extra energy and felt I could take on a hard workout just like mornings when I arrive at my desk with the same feeling. I’m not sure where the swell of confidence and energy comes from but it arrives unexpectedly but never without notice or appreciation. As women entrepreneurs, we need “bad ass” attitudes periodically to kick through our leadership duties and workloads.

Can you imagine what amount of work we’d get done if we had Jillian Michaels standing over us every day at our desks. We’d hear these phrases, “You aren’t a baby. Get up. Keep moving. You are stronger in the places you are broken. It takes all your energy. Just do it!” I know we wouldn’t relish the thought of having her yelling over our shoulder, but you must admit we might accomplish more.

Today’s business blog post is meant to motivate you to be a “bad ass” business woman today. You know what I mean. You know what you need to do. You’ve been avoiding sale calls or hard tasks for awhile. Just do it. Pick up the phone or tackle the toughest thing on your list right now – right this very minute. Stop wishing the activity away. Remember you are stronger than you imagine. Nothing can break you – especially nothing in business.

I could end today’s inspiration by promising you the tone of my next blog post will be calmer, but then again in the words of Jillian Michaels, “I can’t make any promises. We all must kick butt to succeed in life.” I hope you make it a “bad ass” business day.
