Business Advice for Women Entrepreneurs

In the sea of green and gold colors facing a stage settled under track lighting with television cameras rolling, I listened intently to a panel of 5 national media experts at the biggest on-campus event at my Alma Mater. The Media Summit was founded 10 years ago by a SUNY Oswego broadcast major name Louis Borelli, whose long successful journey as a pioneer in the world of mass media and broadcasting, created a media summit on campus showcasing today’s media luminaries as well as the Oswego communication students who produce the event.

It was an intelligent discussion between media leaders in print and television that shed light on the debate of traditional media versus online media in today’s world. The brightest light shining from the panel was the only female participant Connie Schultz, a nationally syndicated columnist for Creators Syndicate and a regular essayist for Parade Magazine. She also contributes to the New York Times and Washington Post. She won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary for columns that judges praise for providing “a voice for the underdog and underprivileged.”

When Connie spoke, the air was filled with positive energy, human connection and women’s equality. Although the audience was filled with 50% men and women, the room erupted in applause every time she spoke. Amazed that the men on the panel, like Al Roker of Good Morning America and Charlie Rose, a legend in night time television, couldn’t get quite the response from the crowd that Connie did, I contemplated why. My conclusion led me to what I already know to be true.

Women are not afraid to speak from the heart, move people with emotionally stories and inspire others to do better for themselves and the world. It could be because of the two X chromosomes we carry within us. It must make us see the world differently and express our thoughts more passionately. Every woman I spoke with after the panel commented on the exquisite personality and comments from Connie. As one body, we heard and felt the same sentiment.

Today’s post is to remind you that being female means we have the ability, to move others through our own hearts, emotions and successes. We should never back down from our best female traits. It is what we need to make the world a better place. Our voices must be heard to give another perspective across the nation. Embrace the fact you are a fantastic female with an intelligent and emotional view on subject matters and then proudly share them.

    I do believe women have the power to forge connections, often times quickly. Just as you state, it is our willingness to be human and share of ourselves that makes this possible!
