Choose to challenge, the theme surrounding #IWD2021.
Every single day, you and you alone are responsible for your thoughts and actions 💭 I’m sure we can all be guilty of speaking without really thinking about what’s going to come out, reacting without taking a moment to pause and think about the consequences but I’m also talking about the times when we say nothing at all. When we feel silenced.
I’m talking about standing back and watching something happen that you know is wrong. Seeing something that makes you feel uncomfortable but not having the courage to speak up. The times when you have been shut down in a meeting before you’re finished speaking. The times when you have been portrayed as a b*tch because you’re a strong and confident leader. The times you felt overlooked because of your gender.
So from today, Monday 8th March 2021 I’m challenging you to really take notice of the words you speak and the actions you take. If you #choosetochallenge what difference could it make?
When I set up my business consultancy practice over 18 years ago, my clients were predominantly male, heavily involved in the construction industry. Now in 2021, it’s amazing to see how many female led businesses we have onboard 🎉 You ladies are killing it 🙌🏻 It literally gives me a buzz seeing so many ladies bossing it!!
Being an entrepreneur myself I know that it’s tough out there being a woman in business but we can choose to cheerlead for our sisters, seek out and celebrate each other’s successes. We can choose to stand up for what we believe in, advocate for those who can’t advocate for themselves, choose to call out gender bias and inequality ❤️ ⠀
You have to have the courage to stand up for what you believe in, know your worth, and always speak your truth ⚡️ You get one shot in this life so always be your true authentic self and remember, the Financial Growth Academy always has your back! ⠀⠀⠀
Are you standing with us? 💪🏻
Until next time Jo xx
