Let’s Empower Other Women

Advice + Inspiration, Uncategorized

This is something that has been so incredibly prominent in my daily life now more than ever.

So much so that I have joined a Women in Business Club, joined a couple of Girl Boss Blogging Groups, etc.

It’s easy, as women, to see other women as a threat or competition, but in reality we should be working together.

As I am becoming a young professional, I’m beginning to realize that we need to encourage each other more and more. Joining new groups has opened my eyes to how much potential we have for change.

Today, in the Women In Business meeting I attended, the topic of conversation was:

“Let’s Be Real- About Our Fears”

In this conversation, we discussed our big picture goals and the fears that come with striving for them.

For me, I have always been concerned with the “work/life balance”. Being in this group, it was comforting to know I was not alone in this worry. Many other women voiced the stress that comes with thinking about having a family while striving to become a successful career woman. Other women talked about their choice not to have children and the negative comments that they have received from voicing this. Sadly, these are things many women worry about.

So, being in a group with ambitious women and being able to have open conversations with each other about our dreams and fears is huge. We all have fears and knowing that you have an amazing support group who mutually encourages each other makes working through them much easier.

I want to end this blog post with a Ted Talk that was introduced at the beginning of the meeting. Just some food for thought and advice from the chief operating officer of Facebook and founder of Leanin.org. Definitely check it out!

 

Tomorrow I will post about Podcasts that are based around empowering women- I have been obsessed lately!

Thanks for reading. Let’s inspire and encourage each other today.

Heather Stillufsen for the Young Professional

Advice + Inspiration, Uncategorized

I’ve been on Pinterest for years, and I don’t know if others are like this, but I usually create several boards and then decide I want to get rid of them all to start fresh.

So this time instead of making new boards, I made a new account:

It is – YoungCoco check it out! 🙂

I created this account last week, and have noticed similar posts circulating around the site. However, this morning I got on for a dose of motivation- highly recommended- and saw something I have never seen before.

Heather Stillufsen’s Art– Here’s a link to her twitter.

I’m sure her art posts are not new- because there are so many of them! People have boards dedicated to her artwork. I just love the idea behind her pieces.

How cute? I adore how her work appeals to young professionals and young woman in general. This is exactly what I needed to see this morning.
