Influencing the World With Your Personal Mission

July 26, 2016

Business inspiration and wisdom for women and women entrepreneurs

As I listened to First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech last night at the Democratic National Convention, I was reminded why women need to have more opportunities to lead and speak. I have witnessed the same level of confidence, compassion and courtesy when listening to women entrepreneurs who typically take to the podium at my women entrepreneurs events across New York State. In my mind, lifting up women to equality in leadership roles in non-for-profit organizations to corporations to the highest role in the land makes brilliant sense.

When I’m asked why I have dedicated over twenty years of my life to supporting, promoting, publicizing and lifting up other women – especially women entrepreneurs – it is for the same reasons Michelle Obama mentioned last night. Women today and the girls to follow our generation have a bright future of unlimited potential when they see the traditional glass ceilings broken across America. It is tireless work to push back against the standard way of doing business, living life and speaking up, but if we have a cause that moves us every day that can make a positive contribution to the world, we have an obligation to do the work and share our message.

WsW_pinkToday as I attend an event with all women to talk about influence and income, I expect to witness women in different races, religions and income levels share feelings, blocks and aspirations to keep climbing the revenue ladder in their lives. I will speak to this group about following a personal passion to change the world like my life’s mission of inspiring women to buy from women first and foremost to put more money in the hands, pocket books and bank accounts of women until we earn the same as men.

I hope today’s blog post inspires you to think about your personal mission, the causes that stir your heart and the impact you want to have in this world before you leave it. You count. Your ideas count. Your personal mission counts. Go forward today brave and brilliant with your own passion. Make that change!

    LOVE your focus on Personal Mission! There is no way I would be as satisfied as I am about my business (no matter how much money I made) if it wasn’t for my belief and focus on truly helping other small businesses. Using this as the driving force for everything that I do (especially with my blog) fulfills me and also makes me feel like a success! Thanks for the reminder Tracy, and as always, I will be sharing!

    Thank you Kimberly for your comments. I think the older I get and the longer I have been an entrepreneur (officially 22 years on August 8th), the more I realize how my personal mission moves me forward through good times and doubtful ones. I appreciate your focus on helping small businesses as well. You do it consistently and positively. Kudos to you.
