Breakout Women - beBee

Breakout Women

4K buzzes
We women know the truth, Everyday we face situations that test our confidence and our patience. We're smart and we know our stuff. Yet they still question our skills. While we're dealing with conflict, diversity, resistance to change and less than motivated employees, we're still fighting that prehistoric male/female bias. BAH.

The Breakout Women Hive is for women who are ready to Take Control and Kickass in Business and in Life!

We'll share insights, experience and lessons. We'll laugh, share ideas and listen to each others' stories. We'll learn to be Queen Bees together:)

Most of all, we'll support each other to be the Breakout Women we were born to be!

Let's Kickass together!

When you join the Hive - please BUZZ with a lesson you've learned from your kick ass life! We can all get to know each other while we support each other too!

    Hi @Christine Homolko, I really enjoyed reading this. Did you travel internationally or throughout the USA? I'm sure there were many interesting aspects to doing this. One question, if you were a volunteer who paid for your travels, hotel ad food? Kudos to you!

    #3 I love this comment, @Alan Culler, because it's exactly why I write. Every time I read something like that, not only do I learn a little more about my own writing (people pick out pieces I think were more subconscious than intentional sometimes), I learn more about what makes other people tick. The whole "choose your discomfort" thing came to me when I took a job I really shouldn't have. I don't regret it because I learned so much from it, but I certainly learned about making that kind of choice and being more intentional about it! Let's chat again soon.

    Choose your discomfort, is an excellent way to put it. Being uncomfortable is how we know we are growing.

    04/01/2017 #3 Alan Culler
    Hi Sarah -this resonated with me. I'm not sure my problem in high-school was the same as your son's, but "finding" theatre allowed me to choose a different kind of discomfort. Then "choosing" to study business with people in another country who had been groomed for it since birth was yet another discomfort.

    It is really always about choosing. I often tell my clients that strategy is as much about what you choose not to do as it is about choosing which customers to serve and how.

    Thanks for clarifying about choosing discomfort. I think I need that now.

    @Sarah Elkins I agree. A danger we all face is that while we may grow rather comfortable in a certain job or in working with certain clientele, that job or those clients can go away. We may then find that while the rest of the world moved on, we did not develop the new skills needed to move with it.

    Haben Girma:
    "An internationally acclaimed accessibility leader, Haben Girma has earned recognition as a White House “Champion of Change”, Forbes 30 under 30 leader, and BBC Women of Africa Hero. The first Deaf-blind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, Haben champions equal access to information for people with disabilities.
    People with disabilities represent the largest minority group, numbering one billion worldwide. Reaching a group of this scale creates value for everyone. Organizations that prioritize accessibility benefit by gaining access to a much larger user base, improving the experience for both disabled and non-disabled users, and facilitating further innovation."

    The worst thing a woman can do is betray herself. Awareness helps us not to do that, awareness of our heart and soul and its potentials and desires. Are you willing to live your life knowing there was a dormant life force within you that you never took advantage of, never expressed it, the world never experienced you in your full magnificent power? I wasn’t willing. Even if the journey that I am on, my entrepreneurial journey is not all milk and honey as they say, even though there are moments when I doubt myself and feel I am a total failure and there is no God and I will never make it how I planned it, even then, I would never go back. I would never erase this exquisite growth and discovery I have been on for the last 2 years. And it all started when I realized that coaching might be my Zone of Genius.

    That moment became my new birth, at that moment I felt deeply, and for the first time in my life, that all the aspects of my being finally aligned to its true purpose and way of expressing they were always meant for. All the trauma and hardship became the learning I needed to have in order to understand and have complete compassion with the clients I work with. Had I never experienced it, I wouldn’t be able to provide help and support that people now need. Knowing that I am not afraid of any human emotion makes me stable and calm in the face of my client’s storms and it makes them feel deeply secure and held in a safe space to experience the depth of their souls and come up on the other glorious side – the side only they have, the side of their Genius. And boy, what a humbling and magnificent experience that is!

    Is Your House in Order?
    Is Your House in Order?Last week I awoke from a strange dream. In it, I was barefoot and walking on rich, coffee-colored soil. I entered the home of my "neighbor," a well-known and respected writer whom I admire a great deal. The house was clean and tidy but in...

    #2 Only one major proviso Amy, "made our life truly ours" - the home is a rather special thing, far more than the statement "no place like home". I am no longer an answer to the question "what do you do?" my home is the answer to "what do you love?". Work took meaning away from home, now in the 21st Century, home must take meaning away from work - if this does not happen, then the technological advancements we make in this century is simply an exponential extension of the industrial age.

    Loved the post! One thing I have done well over the last two decades is to focus on foundation first and while that focus means I give up some "greater glories" - much of that thing we like to call "success" simply takes us to other places, working on other plans. I have not tried to "simplify" my life, but ensure home is the place I return to often, if not a lot. I also ensure I appreciate that which is utterly priceless in my home, which is my family.

    What I have given up is living out of a suitcase, moving from airport and hotel, to airport and hotel - for sure I am not directly involved with meeting high-flyers and people at the top of their professional game - but even after the lovely hugs and welcomes, everyone departs back to their respective homes. Half my kids have graduated, the other half are still working their way through university and all of them will have graduated by 2019 - so this time I have with them is ever so important and ever so precious.

    One day all of them will be moving along their respective careers, some will marry and move to new homes, some will still be around, but ALL are committed to remain connected no matter where they are, and with modern technologies, everyone is just one Face-time away. It is a good age to live in - and then there is the arrival of the next generation - another one this year in the form of a second grandson, and that part of the family tree will over time spread its branches also.

    That is why I love this post - I am reading the writings of a true kindred spirit and I dig that - nup scratch that, I love that !

    #27 Electric is a good word for the feeling when those first few words auto-translate in your brain? I've never studied Spanish. I just went to Madrid based on a friend, worked in an International Development Bank where 90% of the work going on around me was in Spanish, and now I copy and paste buzzes and increase my vocab daily....

    I've never been anywhere Deb. Just the USA and Canada. Going to Mexico will be my first time in a country where the native tongue is not English. I was taking Spanish lessons when I lived in LA, for a little while. I lived in a Hispanic neighborhood. I walked by an alley where kids were playing in the back of a house. One kid -- "Perro!" Dog. I was electrified, illuminated. A jumble of Spanish and a word came through. I'm committed to learning Spanish when I get back. Finally. I like the language.

    #24 #25 An intricate non-American....those words really make me smile! In both France and Spain, on my first trip out of the country, I was comically thought to be Irish on a few occasions... the red hair does tend to create the illusion, but I am quite proud to not sound like an American when it comes to an openness of mind and willingness to observe how to be as local as feasible....and lately the Hondurans and Brazilians have also been a bit confused as to my origins since I wield a great copy and paste!

    It's all down to books - to reading giving me the gift of being a citizen of the world.

    #22 It is great to know that construction grabbed you, @jesse kaellis. I meant to force a sense of dislocation and blur the vantage point. Was she dreaming, lying, writing, watching - perhaps all at the same time.

    I like this, Deb. "I decided it needed a name besides 'there,' so I started calling it home." That's a surprise that grounds the reader.
    From my interview: "I’m looking for that payoff, and it could be one sentence or even a word."
    See the genius there, Deb? It can be something simple, the right word in the right place.

    #18 Timing! Ohhh, I dwell in that saying. Most especially because I was trying to highlight the life that occurs in the process of a painting on a wall or a book on a shelf or a career in the making. But then certain works transcend their own time... life is so many things all at the same time.

    #7 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich, thank you for the mention and your kind words. They say that timing is everything so I am glad that my most recent pieces evoked emotion in you; and brought you here with this beautiful piece of artistry. The imagery and narration is captivating and you transport the reader to another place in time. There's magic in selecting just the right colors for your palette and then mixing them together to bring a canvas to life. The richness of the pigment - and sometimes the dullness of it - can combine together to create something completely different than the artist may have intended. That's the beauty in pigments, and in life, the mediums that we can add to it to create a tapestry that we come to know as life. Thank you, Deb. This piece brought me to a special place today. One that was much needed.

    #13 It is incredible to hear, @🐝 Fatima Williams, that I was able to transport you to another time in your life. Most of us have had those transitions where we felt an outsider, a watcher and not a participator. And in my case, being a spectator invokes that sense of being in the cheap seats watching a magnificent performance spread out below, where what unfolds is tidy and planned and deeply full of meaning.

    Hi Laura...terrific post! I'm a big fan of quotes, probably because I am too lazy to have an original thought. Here's a great one from Teddy Roosevelt:

    "It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood. He who strives valiantly. Who errs. Who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. But he who does actually strive to do the deeds, who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions. Who spends himself in a worthy cause. He who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

    Stay in the arena @Laura Mikolaitis, and keep those post coming!

    You saying, "being happy with the person I am right now while working toward the person I know I can be", makes me think of Casey Kasem's "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars".

    Also, Hal Elrod's says to be grateful for both the good AND the bad... and that 95% of people settle for mediocrity...

    #21 @Ginger A Christmas, I'm glad that you stopped by by for a visit. Thank you! Sometimes we have to step outside of our own mind in order to find "us" and sometimes there's a sign (pun intended) that gives us that push that we need toward our "aha" moment. Minds are a beautiful thing aren't they? But we can also let our thoughts hold us back or even hold us prisoner. I know I did and it truly felt like I was just visiting and not really all in. I still feel that way from time to time, but I'm more cognizant of it now. It's always tricky when the heart becomes involved but it can be wonderful too. It's a risk but one I'm glad that I took.
