This might be an epic fail. My biggest, most public failure yet. Oh my gosh, actually writing that down seriously freaks me out. But you know what?
Too bad. I'm owning this.
Have you ever had that nagging feeling that something needs to change? You know when you're working really really hard, but some things are just. not. clickin'?
This has been my journey with WE this year and I tell you it's been uncomfortable sitting in that space.
The WE Network is my biz baby and the dream is bigger and brighter than ever before. Together, we have a chance to make a huge impact for our country and for the incredible women who will follow in our biz footsteps.
But I know that if I want to do all that I can for this community, this business and myself it's time to up the game...
- to capitalise on what we've built and make it even stronger
- to create a brand and message that makes us feel proud to be women and to be women in business
- and to take that vision and message to the world and shout to the rooftops about it.
What I've realised is this. What got us here, won't get us there. So ladies, it's time to evolve.
Enter... SHE OWNS IT
We all know the power of a strong brand with meaning.
She Owns It is more than just a name that literally describes what we do. She Owns It is a mindset. A belief system, a movement. A movement of women who are building epic lifestyle businesses that give them freedom, flexibility and profit.
A movement of women who are owning it along the way.
- No, we don't all want to be the next silicon valley millionaire
- No, we don't all have thousands of dollars of invest in our startups
- Yes, we are pushed for time & and the learning curve is steep
We believe if women thrive in business and in life it will drive equality, economic growth, happier communities and a flourishing NZ Inc.
And we want to make. this. happen.
What She Owns It can do for you
You probably already know about our epic free Facebook community. You might've heard about our paid for membership (which also has a snazzy new name the Social Boss Club).
Yep, we offer lots of cool stuff. But at it's essence, She Owns It is a belief system and a gift to you.
Sheryl Sandburg talks about Leaning In. Now you've got something to Lean On.
You know those moments in time when you say to yourself:
"I don't like to put myself out there"
"I'm not one for putting my face on my brand"
"I hate the thought of doing a live video or showing people the 'real' me"
"Oh no I won't sit in the front row, that's not me"
"I won't reach out to that person, they probably won't even respond"
"This might not work out and someone might notice that I failed"
Those are the critical moments when you can lean on this brand. Where you can simply change that message in your head from 'I shouldn't, or "I can't" to "I can" and "I'm just going to own this."
Seriously, mindset is a journey for us all.
The entire reason I started this business is because I sat in isolation for so many years I'd started to resent my business and the life I built for myself. It's been a huge learning curve and real push for me to step out from behind my business and start owning what I do.
But I'm doing it now every day. And since the inception of She Owns It, the number of times I have told myself that I can own this, I can do this, has already been huge. She Owns It has guided my actions and pushed me to ask for more, expect more and be more.
And you know what? It's been a little scary- but bloody fun as well!
So my hope is that this new brand and message can help you with this as well.
So that together we can become stronger, more confident and more profitable in our lives and our businesses.
