Why Helping Women Climb the Ladder Isn’t a Gender Issue—It’s Good Business

Why Helping Women Climb the Ladder Isn’t a Gender Issue—It’s Good Business | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Lean in. Speak up. Don’t opt out. Everyone’s talking about what women should be doing to get ahead at work. Why the sudden interest? Has corporate America finally got the message it should be doing right by us? I’d like to think so. But I suspect there’s more to it.

 

There’s no disputing that in business, nothing trumps the bottom line. So my theory is that as long as our economy struggles, anything that could possibly make the numbers rise is open to discussion. Even helping women get their due.

Best Advice: You Can Do Anything You Choose ~Martha Stewart

Best Advice: You Can Do Anything You Choose ~Martha Stewart | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

The best advice I’ve ever received was from my father when I was 12 years old and willing to listen. He told me that with my personal characteristics, I could, if I set my mind to it, do anything I chose. This advice instilled in me a great sense of confidence, and despite the fact that sometimes I was a little nervous, I stepped out and did what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it. I think it really often is up to the parents to help build confidence in their children. It is a very necessary part of growing up.

Sharla Shults's insight:

"If you want to begin the journey to discover your entrepreneurial passion, you must first analyze your own interests, strengths, weaknesses, and desires; and then you must consider carefully how hard you want to work." ~Martha Stewart
