PLS NOTE: This episode was published before we changed the show's name to Your Power Outlet.
(If you are curious as to Why?, tune into Ep. 19, where I share my raw and uncut journey to finding clarity).
Here’s the Power Seat’s challenge:
“I have been an entrepreneur for over 10 years. I have also taken a few corporate gigs along the way.
I have been finding, and I don’t know if it’s me telling myself stories, but I certainly know there are times when I’m not making it up.
I look young and when I’m in a room with directors and above which are usually all men - it’s like I’m not even at the table.
Sometimes I feel like I always have to prove myself and because I am always proving myself it looks like I am bitchy or too direct.
If a man did the same things, they’d say “wow he’s going for it”.
I am small in stature, I look young and it feels s like they look at me and I don’t fit, so they create an opinion of me.
A lot of times I am the most qualified person in the room to answer the question.
The story I am making up is that sometimes it’s even futile to try.
Often when I am in a sea of men, the men in the room often look at my business partner for answers when I am the expert.
HOW DO I gain confidence with the audience, really quickly so I can show up as someone worth listening to?
Tune into the Episode 11, to hear how other women have navigated similar experiences, from which we all get to choose what resonates and what we want to be intentional about doing differently moving forward.
Your Power Outlet Podcast format is easy to replicate in your own world.
What would the outcome be if you ignited your own #PowerOutlet within your organization, at an upcoming conference, or amongst like-minded individuals?
