I was reading this blog from Dell, and I got inspired! They are so right! When we put our red lipstick and our mind to something, we are unstoppable even in 4-inch heels or higher. We have a unique approach to business and success because we are, by nature, creators. Women were born to give life. In modern times we don’t only give life to other humans, but we use our creative power to give life to dreams, ideas and change the world around us, with grace.
However, to move that from the simple stage of dreams into hardwood reality we need to put in the work. That is what you need to think about when you hear that the dream is free, but the vision is sold separately.
Be bold, but specific and reasonable!
When we think about vision, we love to say that it is a wireframe for the dream. Since the vision outlines what you are about to do, it needs to be as bold as possible, so you have enough room to fulfill all your desires.
Look at some of these extraordinary visions from top companies and get inspired. You don’t have to be IKEA to create a better life for many people; you can have a daycare and do exactly that. Also, you don’t have to be JetBlue to inspire humanity in the air and on the ground, you can be a great personal coach and achieve the same goal.
Once you have set your mind to something, think backward. Envision the company of your dreams at its peak and think about ways to get there. If you feel you need some clarity, you might find it helpful to get a mentor.
Ask for help! The 80/20 rule
The biggest mistake most ladies make when becoming entrepreneurs is striving to do everything on their own. You are not less of a fierce boss babe if you ask for help and if you delegate what is not your core strength. In fact, joining forces with other boss ladies makes everybody’s businesses grow faster and stronger.
They say it takes a village to raise a child. It takes another village to grow a business, just choose your tribe’s members wisely.
Put an exclamation mark next to all the things you don’t feel 100% confident on doing yourself. If you have 80% of the tasks marked, you are on the right track because the 80/20 rule says that only 20% of the things you do bring 80% of your income, the others are just slowing you down.
It doesn’t matter if you want to write a book or just better manage social media, there is always good help available. If you're going to honor your God-given gifts, bring them to the world. Sometimes that even means investing money to get more money back from your business.
Don’t let yourself be trapped in daydreaming without taking action.
