"An ancient Chinese text says, 'The way to simplicity lies through complexity.' I've learned that fulfilling your best destiny is a startlingly simple process -- but that doesn't mean it's easy." ~ Martha Beck
So this happened.
I was networking at a benefit for my local NPR station, sharing a cocktail table with a crowd of women and men. The conversation was flowing and I was having a great time. The two women across the table asked me “What do you do?”
I said, “I’m a career and leadership coach for women and the name of my business is The Superwoman Project.”
This was their response:
Last year I spoke to hundreds of professional women from around the globe who are inspired to find more fulfilling work, up-level their leadership skills and become a strong female leader.
Many of the women I speak with feel paralyzed by their circumstances — “I can’t earn money doing what I love, but I hate what I’m doing; I can’t walk away from this career I’ve worked so hard to build even though it’s killing my soul; I don’t have enough time to find a new job because I’m so busy at this one that I hate; If I go back to school, I’m going to be in a lot of debt, but I need more education to do what I want to do.”
How do you go about pursuing your dreams and finding creative work that is fulfilling, rewarding and meaningful? How do you experience success with your creative endeavors?
I believe both women and men can find the answer in what I like to refer to as, your feminine superpowers. Whatever your industry or sector, I firmly think this is key to your success.
