Anna Kunnecke, Founder of Declare Dominion

Superwoman Summit Session:

The Conflicting Beliefs That Hold Us Back

Be nice. But fierce. But not too nice. Or too fierce. 

Excel...but don't make anyone feel bad. 

Pour yourself into your work...and also pour yourself into your family. 

Negotiate like a man. But whatever you do, don't try to do it like a man. 

Is it any wonder we feel paralyzed sometimes, with all the contradictory advice coming at us? But that's nothing compared to the conflicting beliefs most of us hold INSIDE us. 

In this talk, we'll look at the beliefs that live inside us (whether we're aware of them or not), how they got there, and the way they influence us. 

You'll learn a surprisingly simple process for steering your way through your life so you can feel clear and strong and confident as you make your own choices. //

About Anna:

Anna Kunnecke is a writer and coach who helps women declare dominion over their lives.

Her clients are intelligent, soulful women who are too smart for most of the self-help aisle. They report copious swearing but also a strange kind of magic.

While working with Anna, her clients have started new businesses, negotiated raises, taken on courageous projects, and done historic legal work. They've healed painful personal patterns and shifted tricky relationship dynamics. All of them discover that they are bigger, braver, and more powerful than anyone had ever given them permission to be.

Anna is the creator of The EFBA Mentorship, The Bliss Conspiracy, and Practical Magic for Secret Mystics. More than 3,000 people have made their homes more beautiful using her program The Queen Sweep, a program on clearing clutter and sweeping out old beliefs and habits. Anna is also the founder of The Birth Story Project, a nonprofit website that curates empowering birth stories from women around the world.

Her secret agenda-- that's really not a secret at all-- is a global takeover by the wise women.  You can find more about Anna's work, including free resources, at her website DeclareDominion.com.

Leading up to The Superwoman Summit, we asked Anna a few questions:

What do you think is the greatest challenge facing professional women who want to excel?

Inner conflict and guilt.

If you have one piece of advice for professional women when it comes to leadership, what would it be?

Own it. Take responsibility for the choices you make, and be proud of them. Also: fuck that noise. (YES!)

Name a female leader you admire and why?

Ruth Bader Ginsberg. She stepped into the one of the most patriarchal and elitist rooms in the world and she used her voice to advocate for every person who would never make it into that room.

What is your favorite quote to inspire women leaders?

“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” - Malala Yousafzai
