As a woman thriving in business, do you still subscribe to the saying, “It’s a man’s world”?
If you do, don’t judge yourself. It’s hard to outgrow decades – if not hundreds – of years of cultural, societal, and media perspectives deeply ingrained in our psyches and entrepreneurial systems. As women, we have been socialized to put everyone’s needs ahead of ourselves.
Thankfully, there are more and more women who are helping countless others step outside of imposed boundaries and think beyond the four walls of their homes and cubicles, such as this week’s Thriver, Sara Roach-Lewis. Sara not only embodies a strong, independent woman; she actually wrote guidelines that will help educate and inspire fellow women to take action in their own businesses.
Listen as Sara shares the six She Rules and how she was able to overcome challenges in her own life and achieve so much in her career and business.
- The more women can hit that six-figure and seven-figure mark, the better off we all are. – Nikki Rogers
- The bible of business strategy is “The Art of War”, which is a book about military strategy. And it is supported by a woman at home doing everything. So when we think about that, it’s no wonder that it doesn’t always feel comfortable for women – because it wasn’t created for us. – Sara Roach-Lewis
- There’s so much of that hustle culture and you just having to do all the things. You have to do it hard, and you have to do it fast, And that doesn’t work for women. – Sara Roach-Lewis
- To ignore (everything else a woman does) in a plan for your business is just not fair. – Sara Roach-Lewis
