What Are Businesses Afraid Of?

How is it women are welcomed on the front line in the Marines but not on more corporate boards?  Does this mean our skill at killing is worthy but not our skill in business strategies?

What does this show us about our value in our own communities?

While women make up 75% of purchasing decisions – they also make up less than 1% of suppliers to corporations and government.

Which parts of this financial makeup in our business world is acceptable today?

”Women have almost $US20 trillion in purchasing power and yet they are not involved in the creation and solution of services,’‘ WeConnect’s president and co-founder, Elizabeth Vazquez, said.

ISLAMABAD –Begum Salma Ahmed Shah is a renowned businesswoman and is FPCCI Vice President. She is the founder President & CEO of Woman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WCCI) Sindh and Chairperson of BSA Inc Karachi.

As compared to men indeed the ratio of women in the field of trade and industry is almost negligible. Among other reasons why women are shying away from industry are four major reasons

(1) An enormous amount of money required for investment.

(2) The investment climate is unstable due to the electricity & gas shortages.

(3) Access to credit is not easy.

(4) The interest rates for loans are not viable.

(5) The law and order conditions prevailing in Karachi.

Women are therefore shy of making long-term investments. As far as trade is concerned a large number of women are taking part in this activity especially in the urban areas. However, the figures are not satisfactory and new venues of investment must be tapped, in order to attract a larger ratio of women.

Women around the world are asking these questions.  Will women in American join the conversation with intentional actions to create solutions?  I am ready, are you?

What Will We Do to Change This Weary Growing Situation?

Before I was going to give a client their Communications Media Audit today I saw an email from my Texas Bloggers group about “who wants a new dress.”

I am game for dresses, they are my favorite.  Being able to feel feminine in any setting, business, speaking or out to dinner – a women can be a women even if she plays hard ball in the professional court.

Uneeka Jay the founder of PowerMommyNation states…The answered prayer for every mother who wishes there were 48 hours in a day opposed to 24.  How many time shave you caught yourself saying that same prayer?

Uneeka founded Powermommy Nation when her quest to find emotional and educational support for executive women who were mothers was unsuccessful. In defining the scope Uneeka realized that all mothers were seeking support and expanded her focus beyond executive mothers.

Today we will discuss what has been Uneeka’s journey to get her where she is and how can you relate and learn from it.  Who knows, you might create a whole new solution based on that thinking and problem solving.

Having been consciousness and aware of words, labels and how we talk about each other for 25+ years, it was great to see this Ignite presentation by Caroline Ducker on how we can improve having more women being in the Tech world.

  1. Where are you referring to yourself in less than accurate languaging?
  2. How can we help each other by letting go of the misplaced conversations buffers that take away our power?
  3. What will you do differently this week to be a part of this solution?

Thank you to Ignite for creating this powerful messages in 5 minutes.  Brilliant idea in action.

Takeaway quote: “And by women, I mean people who have menstruated and paid taxes.” Embrace your womanhood.

Bon Crowder, math mom, business woman and education champion. She is the creator of Math Is Not a Four Letter Word, a math education website supporting parents and teachers.

It has become socially acceptable, even desirable, to do poorly in math.  It’s detrimental to the next generation for them to witness this in their role models. Furthermore, each generation that’s proud of its inability to do math, will contribute to the spiraling decline in our global math competency.

Bon is dedicated to teaching parents strategies to create a positive math environment in their home, so their children can grow up in a numerate world and crush this cycle.

If you have ever received the comment “You are just being sensitive” when you chose to speak up for yourself or “I was just joking stop freaking out“…there is a good chance you have been gaslighted.

Here is a great post from Yashir Ali that goes in to better details what is gaslighting and what it looks like.

What I want you to do after reading this is to ask yourself these questions:

  • When has this happened to me?
  • What did I feel when it happened?
  • How did I respond?
  • Have it happened lately?
  • Am I still allowing this to  effect me without recognizing it;s manipulation?
  • How can we as women be more supportive of each other?
  • What will you do differently now you are aware of this and what it truly is?
  • Are you going to be willing to “be” the change you wish to see?
Will you see the difference in our worlds when we stand for our brilliance instead of argue for our weaknesses?

How Man Times Have You Asked Yourself

  1. What Am I Here For?
  2. What Can I Do To Make A Difference?
  3. What Is My Purpose?

Are you giving that question the time it deserves to help you get to the accurate answers?

Going through a rigorous program with Pauline Serice author of Authentic Leadership Development has been whipping my butt – to put bluntly.  We hear folks throw around a myriad of words that for many of us do not ring clearly because they are not being used in the right context.  They are not being given the honor and position that will allow the user, well as the words to create the difference desired and expressed.

For example, my mother so eloquently put yesterday she is shifting the way she uses the word “Love”.  She said too many times we have fallen into the guise of saying “I love ____” when in fact we do not love it we “like it” even “like it a lot”, but LOVE nope.  When we lie to ourselves in our own languaging and communications like that, we are corrupting our ability to live a life of purpose because we are throwing nails in the road ahead of our own cars.

“Have we morphed the meaning of love

or have we distorted it?”

What problem are you here to solve?

  1. Do you know your purpose?
  2. What if that clarity of purpose allowed you to achieve what you wanted with more accuracy and speed?
  3. Do you think you can do that if you are using one of your best tools – your communication when it is misaligned?

As women we take our roles seriously and with great pride in that we recognize we “create.”

Whether you are a physical mother or not, women by their physiology create.

We create life in many different forms.

  • Children
  • Ideas
  • Solutions to big and small problems

It is who we are and what we do.

 often hear women saying these statements that

dis-empower them

  • I am so scattered I can’t keep focus.
  • There is so much I am responsible for and it keeps getting larger.
  • I can’t seem to finish anything I come up with.

When you gain clarity around your purpose, you give yourself the reinforcement to be able to ask yourself simple questions to ensure you are staying on track when these type of comments start surfacing.  Many times these questions halt our progress because there are so many limiting and negative beliefs we have grown up accepting from others.

Ask yourself, have you heard any of the above comments and because you could not see your own clarity in the situation, you accepted the statements and took them on as your own.  They gave you solace and allowed you to not keep looking for your own answers.  I have.

There is an assignment I complete a few weeks ago that has helped me tremendously, it was defining my purpose.

What I am here on planet earth to fulfill?

We lie to ourselves when it is time to answer this question.  (This one sentence is a whole other blog post).

Here is what I discovered:

  • I did know my purpose
  • It was inside me all along
  • I was just afraid to say it out-loud
  • When you say it out-loud you can feel it when you are on target
  • When you commit to your purpose-doors start opening up for you
  • Knowing and declaring your purpose starts your work, not completes it.
  • That work that manifests from your purpose is more satisfying – it feeds you.

Here is my purpose…………what is yours?

Increase people’s awareness to live from depth- to live a deep and meaningful life that contributes to the quality of everyone’s lives.

 

Teach and develop via business how to make a difference as well as a profit.

What benefit are you cheating yourself from by not claiming your purpose?
