Imagine having your own company – work from anywhere you want, set your own hours, never worry about doing another self performance review. #girlboss. The reality of it is not quite so black and white.
“a monthly women-centric event where conversations range from work-life integration to embracing inner beauty & self-expression in order to embolden the female spirit.”

Near the end of the evening, event moderator Harmonie Krieger, Founder of popyourshop asked the panelists to share their favorite tools – sidenote – I loved that this was one of those questions that aspiring entrepreneurs could get the nitty-gritty details about how these women get the job done, and stay sane.
- Be strategic about saying NO – prioritize your business goals, set 3-4 daily goals, and tie those to monthly goals. Be laser focused.
- Work hard and know when to shut it off – go to the gym, yoga, hiking, etc. Use Asana and Google Docs to track everything – in other words communicate!
- Protect yourself and your assets – in this case your time is an asset. Set expectations when you schedule meetings, get help when you can.
- Have consistency and trust in the process – Be patient that your work will pay off, but know that very few people become overnight successes. Create Value every single day!
