Last night my husband and I were talking about the principles we want our kids to focus on. They are now all young adults from ages 19 – 24 and all venturing into a new phase in their life. This was not an easy discussion as we constantly allowed our emotions to impact our thoughts but after about 2 hours our discussion became quite fruitful. We realized we want all our children living a Healthy independent life, being fiscally responsible while always growing and improving. I won’t bore you with the details, but what I love about having these principles is that it makes it easier for us to make decisions. If one of our children needs our help we can now consider how they are living these principles which will reinforce our decision.
Your business is no different, as a female financial advisor it’s so easy to get caught up in the emotions of your business, your minds can easily block out the realities in lieu of what you want to see or do. While you may not select principles to grow your business, having a vision driven by your Mission can provide that same structure and guidelines when making a business decision.
In my business, Your Pink Office, my mission is to inspire female financial advisors to better leverage their strengths to accomplish more. To help them recognize their unique differences and have the courage to trust their instincts and follow their heart. With this in mind every decision I make, every investment I make into my business must fit within my mission. I can even look backwards and ask myself in 2011 how did I accomplish my mission? What are the measurable achievements that inspired women?
