• 6 New Years Resolutions for Women Entrepreneurs|Lisa Abeyta

     

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-abeyta/6-new-years-resolutions-f_1_b_6393342.htmlI’ve created a set of purposes that I think might also inspire other women in the workplace, so I am sharing these resolutions here to help challenge the status quo and push myself and other women to hold ourselves accountable and to serve as a guide as we work to help ourselves and other find success. Actually, especially if I am the only woman in the meeting. I will remember that I have a creative, thinking brain that has just as much to offer, and if I am intimidated into not sharing my ideas, I’ve cheated our company out of having the opportunity to hear all of the ideas that our team has at their disposal.

    5. I Will Support Other Women

    6. I Will Protect Other Women

    As a woman entrepreneur, I have been on the receiving end of other generous women who helped me, who offered a fresh perspective, a great opportunity, and fresh hope with nothing to gain for themselves by reaching out to help me. I have such deep gratitude for these women, because they have lived by a moral code that has allowed others to benefit from the residue of their own successes. It’s a good standard to hold myself to in this coming year, and it’s one I look forward to. If I can help someone else have an opportunity that would have not come their way — that will be the best successful New Year’s resolution I can imagine. Read more…
