I’m talking about women supporting women today. And I mean ALL women.
So what does that mean? What does that look like for you?
I see a lot of cute quotes and hashtags and t-shirts going around saying there’s no competition and that we need to support each other.
But are we REALLY supporting women?
Are you supporting the women who frustrate you? The women who are mean? What about the women who aren’t cool or fashionable or the women who are a pain in the ass?
This episode is a challenge to us all to look closer at our lives and businesses and to think about what supporting women really looks like on a daily basis. I talk about what real supportive relationships look like and how we attract what we are willing to cultivate. I talk about lifting up every woman in your life and not making room for jealousy, mistrust or competition.
ALL women need to be held, seen and heard. And it starts with you. Only when you are a stand for yourself can you be a pillar for someone else.

When you are doing the work on yourself, you become a better human being and start attracting other women like that. [16:00]: Women need to be held, seen and guided, even the ones who are doing the wrong thing. You need to be a stand for yourself first. [17:45]: Instead of comparing yourself to other women, let them uplevel you to be the woman you want to be. Catch yourself when you’re jealous and insecure.
