Erika your daughter will be one lucky, lucky girl! It's about people applying their skills, knowledge and effort to produce results regardless of their gender. If I put my feet on the floor in the morning, I feel it's the least I can do to follow up as best I possibly can on the effort it took to put them there.

Great stuff here Erika, this post reminded me of a quote from Coco Chanel - "Life becomes so much better when you decide to be someONE instead of someTHING". I took that to mean things like being defined by labels - wife, daughter, boss, employee, fat, thin or whatever. I wasted too many years trying to please everyone around me and typically with a correlating effort:success ratio that totally sucked. Funny (really, I mean the ha ha variety) they seem to be much more 'pleased' once I decided to not give a shit and just be Me - know what, me too. Nice thought provoking reminder though, thanks.

Another great post and right on point as usual.


In another comment here Close to Home MD mentioned that we are ALL role models whether we realize it or not, good or bad. I've been fortunate in coming across plenty of brilliant business women who have ditched the 'catty' gene in favor of demonstrating capability, compassion and co-operation in their business dealings. 


I hope it's ok to mention just a few great women I believe are outstanding role models that anyone male or female woul dbe lucky to learn from: Regina Smola @wpsecuritylock WP security expert, @kathleengage  author marketing expert and @lynnterry   IM marketing expert and super affiliate.


Thanks much, because once again your post has really got me thinking what can I do to change/fix this?
