I led my Money Club event this week.
I had the whole event planned out as a celebration to women, to how far we’ve come.
As I walked onto the stage in the morning – I wiped my own tears – and I watched some of the others wiping theirs.
I talked to Jai, back in New York, and he told me about the total silence on the subway – a quiet that he had never heard before. About how work today was a mess. How the fear in New York City was palpable – a place that is normally deemed fearless.
There is a lesson in this – because the universe does not make mistakes. And there are no accidents.
We are being called forth to make change.
In the middle of chaos – there is also re-birth.
As entrepreneurs, we have the power to create massive change on this planet, through our clients and consumers, through our team and through our own leadership.
Throughout the election there were more women stepping out than ever before, and men who stepped out too.
And now – we are called to forge ahead even more.
Do not let the movement that was started end here.
It’s time to come out of hiding.
It’s time to step into our power as change-makers and business owners.
We have the power to guide our teams and clients through breakthroughs.
We have the power to build wealth that can shift the world.
We have the power to set an example of strong and authentic leadership.
We have the power to affect thousands of people.
Now more than ever, we are called to get the support we need, build the skills that will serve us and forge ahead.
There is so much beauty and hope in this – and it starts with us.
Please talk to me – leave me a comment below.
