Wednesday Wisdom: Full-Circle Moments

June 24, 2020

Wednesday Wisdom, Inspiration, Success Strategies for Women Entrepreneurs, Working Mothers, Female Business Owners

Within the soft pale green walls of my home office sits a twenty-five year old man working at a second desk with two full computer screens up and running. White airbuds tucked inside his ears help him communicate with New York City team members. Accounting and management terms flow out of his familiar voice but in a different tone. It is more authoritative, inquisitive, and direct than I’ve heard before.

I quietly sneak through the room to my own desk to write while staring at him periodically in this full-circle moment. This man was only 3-months old when I became a woman entrepreneur. The walls he sits in now, working as a managing engineer conducting business from afar during Covid-19, was the same room he played quietly in and crawled around as I worked at my desk. Once in awhile, I would shush him to make a client call, now I get shushed as he begins a management call.

I’m living and working in a beautiful full-circle moment. I never knew how long entrepreneurial life would be as I set off to change the world with my new business in 1995. I didn’t know if I’d be a good mother while trying to grow my business and sons at the same time. In my heart and gut, I felt I could do it and prayed my sons would grow up to be well-adjusted, successful men who understood my desire to be a working home-based mother with a desire to change the world for the better for women.

At one point in history the world convinced women they couldn’t be successful working while raising children at the same time. As usual, I didn’t listen to what others said, instead relying on my gut instincts and passion to make my life the way I wanted it to be. I never backed down even on tough days when the pressure of doing both was overwhelming. I knew if I stayed the course, I could have my world exactly the way I wanted it. Today I can tell you with certainty as I watch my son manage a team of engineers from my own home office that I was right.

Women must believe they can do anything they put their hearts and minds into doing. Listen to your instincts. Try. Do. Make your life exactly what you want if you can. Don’t back down without trying. For in trying, we test our minds, hearts, and hopes into creating our own full-circle moments where we proved ourselves correct.

Today’s Wednesday Wisdom should inspire you to think about some key full-circle moments in your life or business where you witnessed exactly what you envisioned. We often rush through these moments not giving ourselves enough credit for our tenacity and truth. Women can make their experiences in life exactly what they dream for it to be if they believe in themselves enough.

I can tell you there is no better vision for me, as I celebrate my silver anniversary in a month as a woman entrepreneur, with my pride and joy working in my same space reminding me I chose the right career path and life choice. I wish the identical experience for you.
