International Women’s Day is March 8, 2018 and it’s a global celebration of Women’s Achievement. So what better way to Celebrate International Women’s Day than with Smart Advice from Women Entrepreneurs and a GIVEAWAY! Cheers to you and all the smart, strong, ambitious, and beautiful women you know! I think so many women, myself included, are reticent to ask for help. We think we should be able to handle every situation life hands us on our own. Of course if you were to ask any successful woman how she achieved her career goal and financial independence you’d be hard pressed to find one who did so without any help. So in honor of the sentiment of the day I am thrilled to Celebrate International Women’s Day with Smart Advice from Women Entrepreneurs and a GIVEAWAY!
Over the past year, several women-founded businesses like Happy Fig, Naked Tank, Flynn & King, BooginHead and Charlie Banana have taken it upon themselves to inspire change. However, it’s up to us, individually, to pursue our dreams, along with what’s fair and right. So let’s close the gap on gender stereotypes and promote a healthy and supportive environment for all. And most of all, women need to rely on other women mentors to develop their potential, let down their guard, and let go of any feelings of shame in needing help-that is when we’re truly able to soar. Bogg Bag reminds us that “By helping each other…women keep thriving and breaking barriers”
If you need a spark of encouragement, here’s a list of inspirational female entrepreneurs and motivational quotes. As a bonus, you can win prizes from these women-owned companies when you enter the contest below and check out my three career advice tips to take your business to the next level! The sentiment of women uniting to help one another is what I love most about Celebrating International Women’s day! Together we can Celebrate International Women’s Day with Smart Advice from Women Entrepreneurs and a GIVEAWAY!

#1 When it comes to nailing that first impression my advice is: fake it till you make it. Even if you don’t think you are qualified enough, even if you don’t think you can handle it- SAY YOU CAN. Believe you can. Fake that confidence and eventually it won’t be a chore- it will come naturally!
#2 Have the right tools in your tool box. A journal will help you gather your thoughts and map out your career strategy, while you can use post it notes to write yourself letters of encouragement and stick them all over the place!
#3 Don’t forget to follow up after that initial phone call and or first meeting with a Thank you. Whether you send an email or a handwritten letter make sure you tell your clients that you appreciate their time and look forward to the possibility of working together. Never underestimate the power of a thank you note!
