Women & Power = Money (& so much more.) When I use the word power with my women coaching clients, they can act uncomfortable. Why? Because they've seen power used as a method of control or as a power over manuever. The Boss is in control - I have to do what he or she says.
However, the definition of Power is simple: To Act. A recent article in the New York Times: "You Have Power: Don't Be Afraid to Use It," interviewed successful women.
Here are 4 nuggets they shared about power, how to support yourself and each other and to achieve success:
1) Women can and should help one another and stop under valuing "...the role that we can play in the success of other people and the organization." Amy Schulman, Exective vice president and general counsel, Pfizr
2) Be vocal in group settings and don't make statements that sound like questions. (Women are still trying to prove they belong - men know they do). Amy Schulman
3) Trust your inner soul, use your voice. Cooperation is a great female strength and in groups of men, "...you must speak up and believe in yourself." Doreen Lorenzo, President, Quirky, a product development company
4) Don't be afraid of being "nice." Marjorie Kaplan, of Animal Planet, says she manages based on expectations rather than fear. And, if men aren't being respectful at a meeting, for example by not introducing themselves, speak up. Doreen Lorenzo says if you're not being treated respectually end the meeting: "We're going to end this conversation until you listen to me. Don't be afraid to use your power."

The message from these powerful corporate and entrepreneurial women is quite clear. The corporate culture stlll tends to be traditional, however women are making a difference and need to support each other. All these women are successful, have learned through the school of hard knocks. Be successful, believe in yourself and get help when you need it.

“I have achieved more goals this year than in the last 8 years of business. When I started Money Coaching I felt guilty paying bills.
I realized why I wasn’t fully financially
responsible - the child inside had been scared about money. As soon as I faced the fears I felt a lot better and good things started flowing and happening.”
