Business Women's Day

Happy Business Women's Day!


Business Women's Day recognizes the value and contribution of women in the business world.

Women got into the workforce during World War II, when they were needed. When the men came back from war, the women were happy to have them back but not so happy to return to traditional roles in the home. Since then, women have moved more and more into the workplace. And I, for one, am glad to be part of it! I would not have faired well as a housewife.

Kudo's to the ladies!

Having said that, I am glad that I have had little experience in the "traditional" workplace.
Between college and grad school, I worked as a cocktail waitress, and secretary, and later as a magazine copyeditor and head of publicity at a comedy club, that's about the extent of it. Then, I became a songwriter/producer working from home, a rehabber of properties, property manager where we lived on the property, and then a book/business coach.

I've never thought of myself as being at a disadvantage, but I have learned something along the journey. So I have some advice for women in the workplace:

Don't take it personally if somebody treats you "like a women" in the workplace. Know your value and live by the motto that it's about them, not about you if they lash out at you or try to put you down whoever "they" may be. And that you have a choice, you can stay calm and point out the facts, or you can choose to walk away-i.e. fire them. But either way, know it's up to you and you do have the power to choose.

Just saying...

That's it for now!

ROCK your business with books!
