As has been echoed by so many participants, I came to Gr8 Women Leaders during a period of transition. I was at a point where I needed to make some decisions about my career but found myself unable to move forward. During my coaching sessions with Darlene Templeton it became clear that I was “holding on too tight.” I needed to “slow down and trust the process.”
Once I had slowed down, it became clear to me that being a Solo Entrepreneur was not for me. I had always wanted the autonomy of running my own business, but to play to my strengths and to be successful, I needed to work in a team environment. This realization helped me define my goal – finding a business that gave me the right combination of autonomy and teamwork – I am happy to say that I did.
Throughout this self-discovery process, it was wonderful to share the journey with a group of women who would celebrate my successes – finally putting together a website – and didn’t judge my failures – I never did write that business plan! There is immense strength in a group of women who come together to serve each other. Supporting other women and celebrating our authentic selves makes us Gr8 Women Leaders.
