Over the holidays I took some time off work and indulged in what my husband calls “girl TV.” I love me some HGTV and DIY. I can watch hours and hours of Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gains or Rehab Addict with Nicole Curtis. I never get tired of seeing how they turn some of the most run down homes into beautiful homes. It dawned on me while I was watching what they do to those dilapidated and outdated homes how many similarities there are to how my Life Edits work in life.
When you trust your vision and make the effort to bring it to life, it seems things and people show up to help you along the way.
While there are still barriers and misconceptions in the workforce, I feel blessed to live in a time where women are only limited by their personal desire to excel. It’s true there are still times we need to push the barrier and make sure our voices are heard, it’s how you do that, that seems to be the question.
I have a problem when a person, who is a communications professional, forgets that people don’t distinguish between personal pages and work pages. When you are the voice of your company, city, or organization, it is your responsibility to keep those lines very clear.
Nick Crase, co-founder of King of Pops, urged us to create a culture uniquely yours. Don't just exist. Know who we are and create a vision that gets you where you want to be.
We all have power within us and we just need to know how to release it and put it to use.
