Her-story & Your-story: Inspiration for Women Entrepreneurs and Women Today

July 27, 2016

Inspiration for women and women entrepreneurs today



It has been one amazing year for women! It started on April 20th when the United States Treasury made the most sweeping and historically symbolic makeover of American currency in a century, proposing to replace the slave holding Andrew Jackson with former slave and abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill and to add women from the civil and women’s rights movements to the back of the $10 bill. Yesterday, Hillary Rodham Clinton became the first female nominee of a major United States political party. It does not matter if you are a democrat or republican, if you are a woman you should celebrate this historical moment because it means women are on their way like never, ever before.

Yesterday as I sat in a room of twelve women for an all day conference focused on image, influence and income, I was reminded why women will continue to succeed to higher levels in the future in business, politics, and society; it is because females are willing to stand with other females, support them, advise them, and cheer them on knowing that another woman’s success is their own success. My own 21 years of personal service to women entrepreneurs has shown me, except for a handful of women, that women want each other to accomplish their loftiest goals. It is why females are amazing people. It’s why finally all of the world can witness the strength of American women through our new currency and on the political stage.

I was reminded yesterday as I left the event that each woman is born with a personal mission statement that moves and motivates them throughout their life. The mission may alter periodically but in the depth of our core, our mission is what we stand for and why we were born at this time in history to make a difference in society and the marketplace. Don’t forget you are on “a mission of your own” with a world to change with your unique blessings and persona.

Look at a photo of you with your sisters, girl friends, daughters, granddaughters, and nieces and say, “You and I have a great future ahead of us because of women of yesterday and today.” So my question to you today is “What are you going to do to keep changing the world for the better for women and girls?”

What I want you to know for sure is I support you and your goals. If I can ever be of service to you to help, share your message, counsel or support you, I’m here. Supporting and lifting up women entrepreneurs has been and remains my beautiful life mission.
