THE GENEROUS CHANGE PODCAST

EPISODE 16 - Girl Power!!!!!

Episode 16: Girl Power!!!!!

*Warning! Adult language in this episode.

On day 588 of entrepreneurship, we're celebrating GIRL POWER! We just hosted the inaugural UPLIFT, a 2-day retreat for women in fundraising in Phoenix. Those ladies blew us away and we are still reeling from the connection, honesty and bad-assery in the room.

We believe:

  • It's time for a new workplace. Minimum compliance & maximum widget production are in the past. For innovation, collaboration and nimbleness, we must focus on building healthy teams, embrace the personal as integral to the professional & lift one another up. 
  • You decide what success looks like. Get rid of the shoulds. Ignore those flawless Instagram stories. Focus on what brings you joy. Define and redefine what success means to you - not to everyone else.
  • Show up for yourself. Hold workouts, massages, alone-time and girls' trips sacred. Give yourself space to think big. Give yourself permission to cry and to be pissed off. Be all-the-way you and you will find your tribe.

 Highlights:

  • UPLIFT: balance between professional & personal [5:56]
