This your mental Vitamin B. Each Monday I share a little motivation & insight to start the week. You’ve got a lot of people depending on you. There is big work for you to do. So here’s a maxim for you, the smart, ambitious woman, to help you SHINE.

“No man who is occupied doing a very difficult thing, and doing it very well, ever loses his self-respect.”  - George Bernard Shaw

Consider what you go through in a day:

  • Taking care of others
  • Keeping the house clean & in order
  • Ensuring proper nutrition & exercise is taken care of for you & yours
  • Work responsibilities
  • Church responsibilities
  • Volunteer & Civic duties

This is the list when everything is going right.

What about when it's not going right?  How do you get things in order?

Lucille Ball once said, "Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."

To really love yourself, you must:

  • Stop comparing yourself with others
  • Start appreciating what makes you YOU.
  • Start finding ways to be more of yourself amidst the craziness of the world.

Today's Monday Maxim: “Love yourself-accept yourself-forgive yourself-and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.” - Dr. Leo Buscaglia In this video, he also said, "The hardest battle you are ever going to fight is to be- just YOU." "I'm really convinced, that if you were to define love, the only word big enough to engulf it all would be Life.  Love is life in all of its aspects. And if you miss love, you miss life. Please don't."

Let’s have the conversation before the conversation…

People get uncomfortable when we have a conversation about the rights of women.

Like with your commitment to financial security, or your political party, or even if and to whom you choose to worship…there are so many levels.

I’m not here to make you uncomfortable.

But did you know, that the world is searching for gender equality?  Google shared this video of the most looked up terms.

And did you know that most looked up word in last year was feminism?

Supporting Women's Day, does not make you against men. It is seeing how far we've come.

Consider that, without women before us paving the way, we would not be able to vote.  Or own land.  Or a home.  Or have our own banking account.  Or pursue our own dream. 

Doesn't that just seem...outrageous?  It does to me. 

That's why today, I honor those who made life better for me.

Women’s International Day

Did you know that WID has been observed for more than 100 years?

International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.

Here's How You Can Show your support

You can support International Women’s Day by:

1. Call Mom. Express your gratitude.   Honor those who have led the way.

http://www.dailycal.org/2018/03/08/guide-supporting-women-international-womens-day-even-arent-one/

2. Choose your words more carefully. 

“word choice makes a huge difference in how you portray yourself and how you make women feel. Men are expected to fulfill a stereotype of strength and aggression, while women are expected to be deferential and fragile.”

http://www.dailycal.org/2018/03/08/guide-supporting-women-international-womens-day-even-arent-one/

3. Stand up so that all girls can have an education and work to support herself.

  • 2/3 of the 774 million illiterate people in the world are female
  • 31 million girls of primary school age are out of school
  • 80% of women in  America become mothers by the age of 45
  • research has shown that childless women are penalized by our bias that women “will become mothers.”

4. Support & celebrate men who support women & make family a priority.

When men have a healthier work/life balance women are allowed are given space to realize their potential

Here’s a maxim for you, the smart, ambitious woman, to help you SHINE.

"You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”  - Marcus Aurelius

The key to remaining positive is to reframe the situation.

Ask yourself, "What is one positive thing about this situation?"

By reframing the situation, even very negative situations can give you positives examples and lessons in life.

We’ve had some real growth in our audience and I want to welcome new listeners to the show.  There are things that you, the long-time listener may not know about me.

So in an invitation to you, new friends today, and in the future, we are taking a moment to let you in.

My purpose is simple.

Smart, ambitious women are rarely thinking about themselves. What do they spend time thinking about?  Their family's needs; aging parents; work responsibilities; the community; and more. Stress can fill our minds and consume our lives.

These women, like us, have forgotten to think about and take care of themselves. 

I’ve worked in marketing and sales for years.  So those are topics we address.  But it’s not a regular sales kind of show. This podcast, Think Enriched, is the place for smart, ambitious women. We come together to share, enjoy some self-care, laugh, and be kinder to ourselves. We learn new strategies for success, then go and do tremendous good in the world.  It is that simple.

Where has your experience led you?

  • As a child we lived hand-to-mouth. 
  • Started off as a money blog
  • As my journey has grown, the show has changed. 
  • This is my second version of a podcast.
  • The friends I’ve made through this podcast are exceptional (online marketers & the listeners)

Where is this going? What’s your vision for this podcast?

  • Women are starving. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally.
  • Beat the army of burnt out women.  Single moms, single women, married, gay, straight, or otherwise, there is too much to take care of in our role.
  • "the exclusive site for smart, ambitious women."
  • CEOs, & power moms have more in common than they realize.
  • Managing multiple people, projects and items have the same principles.
  • Create the system to conquer our little should self-critic.
  • We work so hard to avoid failing others we can easily fail ourselves.
  • I imagine this group of power women that have met for weeks/months at a time online.  That when we come together for our retreat/experience…and finally meet in person at this power event. We learn business strategies, networking skills, keeping your vision fresh, support for women, trusting your intuition and emotions at the same damn time.
  • There's not a business conference that I know of that meet the needs of women. It's like feminist women trying to fit in the man's world. Which is crap. Our world is different. We lead and nurture.
  • It's not about bringing home the bacon like it was before. It's more than that. Putting feelings and emotion in a process doesn't make you weak, it add passion.  it increases the energy, giving you momentum and power, and staying true
  • The vision in my heart is BIG.

Are you a family person?

  • Family is the most important for me.
  • My siblings are in different parts of the world and like any family, we have struggles.
  • Military family which feels like, half-time 2 parents and half-time of single parenting.
  • Support, love, and strength really is where it’s at.
  • Home is our little bit of heaven.

Are you all about the hustle and the grind?

  • This is has been a big one for me… finding the balance.
  • I like to jump in the pool, or whatever it is, and then think, “Huh.  That was kind of a big decision.  It just felt right at the time.”
  • Being Mom & wife and still being able to give to this business can be stressful.
  • Turning off my mind to business ideas doesn’t seem to work.  I’m constantly searching for solutions and applying my life to my business and vice-versa.

Do you happily work 18 hours a day or get it all done in just six?

  • I’ve struggled with this a lot.
  • My husband said to me, “I can’t deal with talking about this all the time. I need you.  Not the business right now.”
  • I had to find a mentor/coach/mastermind/ colleague to discuss the business topics.
  • Turning it off is as important, if not more so, than keeping the business ideas going.

What do you do for fun?

  • My favorite, FAVORITE thing to do is to share stories.
  • I am down for a good game night.
  • I love to play with markers, hand lettering, and color.
  • Make-up is part of that. It’s so fun to try new looks.  I feel really good when I
  • My Mom had a beauty shop in our home.  Doing hair is a lot of fun.
  • Braiding hair is really fun, but I’m really slow.

Twice a week I share a show so it’s here when and where you need it.

Because let's be real, girl, those moments you need a podcast show up. 

 

Moments like when you are:

  • Focusing on work projects all day long.  Your brain feels like mush afterward.
  • Driving and pretending to keep calm even though your kids are screaming non-stop.
  • Feeling low after a day when it all went bad. So bad.
  • Needing a laugh to help you have a break.
  • Trying to remember the last time you had a girls’ night and need some social time.  You're not Mom, the boss, or the spouse. You are simply YOU.
  • Wanting to have a conversation that is real and makes you feel good. Just because.
  • Wishing a good friend would pop right in and cheer you on!

We all have felt like this at some point. For a long time, I thought I was extra needy.

I’m not. You are not. We are smart, ambitious and kind. Those specific qualities make us powerful.

But powerful does not mean you’re a superhero. None of us are.

The REASON I make this podcast is this: Because You DESERVE to love yourself right now. You NEED to give yourself YOUR BEST. Even though you don’t think you have time. Especially when you don’t think you are worthy of it. Self-care is not selfish.

You fill up your own cup so you have more to give. Because what the world needs is you and your best.

That’s why I put so much work to craft and share different podcast episodes each week. I’m there for you. I understand how lonely it can to be to support all those around you and still feel so empty. It’s something no one wants to talk about and yet we can do something about it right now.

It takes time to prepare the show each week.  5 minute Monday Maxims, that quick shot of your mental Vitamin B can take up to 1 hour of time to produce.

Longer episodes take 8-10 hours for production. 

I want you to feel confident. Cared for. Secure. Successful. And oh, so sexy! When you feel good on the inside it radiates in all you do.

Can you imagine if all smart, ambitious women in the world felt this way? We would change the world.

We can change the world as we work together.

Now, you have a decision to make. You could just move on and forget this page. Nothing will happen. Things will probably remain exactly the same as they have been in your life. Nothing happens unless you decide to make it happen.

Or you can do something different. You can contribute and become part of the movement. You can help move this force of powerful women forward. You will be first to know when we get together, in real life.  Imagine the chance to hug one another, laugh, learn and work together to do even more good in the world.

By contributing to the show, you’ll be sharing part of the quality and consistency others count on. You are becoming part of the team.  Your insight will help shape the show for others who need it.

When you contribute, you’ll be doing something special. You’ll help us keep the podcast free.  You'll help keep it out there in the world for another person who is struggling and really needs it. You are paying it forward, literally, so others can join us.

Click on the link and let me know how much this means to you. Your support at any level means a lot to me and to all the listeners who cannot give $1 a month.

You are a star. Shine on.
