Have you met Betty the Bag Lady? You may not think so… but you have.We all have.
As women, we bring a lot of baggage into the workplace – and our inner “Bag Lady” can really hold us back.
But hey, perhaps not all of that baggage is garbage!
What if I told you that some of your “baggage” is actually really valuable?
It’s true! Some of the things we think of as baggage are connected to our unique feminine strengths. They make us GOOD at what we do!
Unfortunately, in a male-dominated industry, these traits can feel like baggage that weighs us down.
Take women’s intuition, for example. The logic-centered working world calls it emotional fluff, saying it’s not “fact based.” But if we embrace the idea that women’s intuition is actually “diffused awareness” (your brain collecting bits of data that help you form a good assessment and make great decisions), that “fluffy stuff” becomes a huge asset.
This is just one example of the many ways women struggle to honor their feminine nature in a masculine industry… until now.
I’m here to tell you that your feminine abilities are NOT baggage. Your intuition is a very powerful business-building gift – and it’s just one of many biological traits that help women be effective in the financial services industry.
