672: The Importance of Recognizing Your Value and Showing Up for Yourself

7/22/2019
More
As generous women, we want to give everything away; as business women we must remember that recognizing our value helps us become better entrepreneurs and better women. On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast I share news of how I pushed myself to recognize my value (with help of my coach) and create something that I can offer as a service to my audience rather than giving it all away, as I am prone to do. INTRODUCING The Support is Sexy Circle, a powerful community of women...

671: Whenever Things Don't Go Your Way, Embrace the "Bounce Back"

7/20/2019
More
"No" is a part of the process when you're an entrepreneur. You will have disappointments, or moments when you think it's going to go one way (your way) but it goes in another. You will have times when you feel highs and lows in the same day, and the lows may throw you for a loop. That's okay, as my coach Margo Geller says, "first feel, second solve." And as I share in this episode, after you feel, then solve or assess the situation, embrace the "Bounce Back!" Get inspired by the story of...

670: The Power of Going from "Have to" to "GET TO"

7/17/2019
More
In this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, I share how you can relieve the weight of a "have to" by shifting your language to "get to." Instead of thinking about whatever it is as something you "have to" do -- think of it, with gratitude even, as a "get to." Being intentional about your language helps you level up your mindset and shift your perspective to one of hope and optimism.

667: Show Up! No Matter Who's There, Show Up for Yourself

7/11/2019
More
Keep showing up! Even when no one is there. Are you showing up just for others or are you showing up for your vision and yourself? Whether others are watching or not, the Universe sees you and knows that you. Show. Up. Be the example for yourself and for others in your commitment to your vision. Here, I share how a run in the park (and a missing truck) reminded me about the importance of showing up! Get inspired by the true stories of women entrepreneurs at supportissexy.com!

661: Insider Secrets No One Ever Tells You About Startups from Cheryl Contee, Author of 'Mechanical Bull' and CEO of Do Big Things

7/1/2019
More
Traditional startup advice doesn’t always apply to female or minority founders. Nontraditional founders don’t always have the same resources as other entrepreneurs -- but investors, business books, and blogs assume you do. They won’t know you’re the first person to go to college in your family. They won’t know you don’t have access to a “friends and family” funding round. In her new book, Mechanical Bull, serial entrepreneur Cheryl Contee identifies and helps you prepare for those speed...

660: Commit, and Then Recommit, and Then Recommit to Recommit to Your Goals

6/30/2019
More
It's that time, mid-year already, when we start to reflect (and probably beat ourselves up) about the things we said we were going to commit to doing at the start of this year but we have yet to even start. It happens. What will separate you from the rest and get you to take the first step is that you have to commit to recommit, and you may have to do that again and again. Stumbling or never starting that goal isn't anything to be ashamed of. What matters is what you're going to do...

6/27/2019
More
“It’s not about the money; it’s about the customer.” Ouidad is a name synonymous with curly hair care. 30-plus years ago, however, she was a hairstylist from Beruit, Lebanon, who fought (literally in some cases!) to have people recognize the value and beauty of women with curly hair. In 1984, she became a pioneer in the hair care industry when she opened the first salon in the United States that was exclusively for curly hair. People told her she was crazy, what they didn’t realized was she...
