“STOP IT! It’s all in your head” – Smash Your Ceiling to Smash That Ceiling – Women Inspiring Women
There have been many debates, articles, directives, and initiatives around/for women in leadership, especially representation in the boardroom. Still, the killer question for me has always been: Is It All In Our Head?
As it is almost the anniversary of the publication of my book, I have been reflecting and reviewing this concept.
Many women have inspired me, both in the past and in the present and, throughout my life, I have looked up to them as examples, beacons of what is possible to achieve if you are really determined.
These women were/are not perfect by any means. But they lived their life on their own terms, and I am who I am today because of them:
- Anna Wintour: a fashion pioneer,
- Margaret Thatcher: love or hate her, you cannot forget her
- In a world full of Kim Kardashians, Be an Audrey
- Josephine Baker: did the Banana skirt start it all?
These women all had the same in common: mindset.
Despite their circumstances, adversities, societal/family/religious paradigms, their mindset set them apart. So writing about them was the beginning of my journey into finding real women alchemist. And helping+empowering women everywhere to Smash their own ceiling – the one in their head.”You have to be open to using your gift/s, to embrace the opportunities and change your life” –I’m passionate about inspiring/empowering/helping women make the most of their circumstances with the available tools and grab the opportunities that life presents – without using excuses of why they can’t. I was lucky during this journey to meet and interview many women alchemist out there. You might have read some of them already via my business blog ( , , , , , , to name just a few).
I wanted to contribute, encourage and help other women in their pursuit of what they want, whatever that might happen to be ( CEO of a multinational, selfpreneur or stay at home mum ) and being happy about it because that was their choice and not what was expected of them and this inspired me to write my book.
Grab a copy, I hope you’ll like it, and most importantly, I hope you’ll find it useful in spurring you into taking action.
For Yourself, Because You Want To.
