You are a powerful working woman, and it’s not just about the shoes.
But, girl, when you have those shoes on, you can change the world. You know how to rock the work you’re doing. When you’re at the top of your game, you’re unstoppable. It’s exhausting, isn’t it?
It’s hard work integrating work, life, faith … and being good at all of it. On Sunday you can’t wait for Monday to come, until the day you realize that Sundays don’t last as long as they used to. I’ve been there. One day I was leaving a meeting downtown, running to my car before the meter ran out, rushing to make it to another meeting … and I had an epiphany.
Women running in high heels. That’s who we are.
We’re running companies, teams, families and households. Chief, cook and bottle washer. We didn’t grow up with examples about how to do both worlds well. We learned about leadership from a perfume commercial that told us we can bring home the bacon, fry it and still look sexy.
Girlfriend, somehow in picking up speed on the career highway, YOU got left behind. You’re not sure you’re in the right role for the right reasons, you’re just hustling to keep up.
