Now is a critical time to affirm women leaders. As part of this important time in our nation and world, Kathy Korman Frey is offering five pro bono (free) coaching sessions the week of 11/14 to 11/18.
This week was the announcement of the DC National Association of Women Business Owner’s Woman of Distinction. While speaking there, I covered “hot topics” from the Hot Mommas Project and the Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership course at the George Washington University. These included:Negotiation, Mentoring, The Confidence Equation, Frenemies, and more.
It’s our un-book club – a component of our Beta Virtual Campus – where we bring role models and mentors from around the world to life. Caroline’s award-winning case-study (see link below) will bring you up to speed before the call.
In what may be the highest value, shortest time ratio: You’ll learn from a real role model and mentor her experiences, amazing life story and be able to ask her questions.

Sometimes, I get the sense a women’s empowerment book comes out and we’ll say: “I need to be that person, and I’m really pond scum until I Lean In, step up, Thrive, or otherwise do all the things this person did to become a superhero…holding a Red Bull latte..in a private jet.”
What IS it that is touching a nerve about these books?
What is “right” for you? Have you defined it?
As women, we have access to wonderful networking groups, mentoring programs and leadership events! The list is endless on the possibilities to learn from and connect with each other. Yet, do we need a formal program or event to be there for each other?…The boys club did one thing right. They not only valued action on behalf of each other, it was expected.
Washington, DC – March 7, 2013 – The Hot Mommas® Project has awarded Tinu Abayomi-Paul a Women’s Leadership Fellowship, a position designed to create exponential benefit to women and girls. The announcement comes in concert with International Women’s Day, 2014.
Research shows that around age 11, girls can begin to experience deficits in what is called “self-efficacy.” In layperson’s terms, this is the feeling of “I can do that.” It doesn’t stop there. As the instructor of a nationally award winning women’s leadership course, I’m called into corporations where I hear about…well…grown up versions of “Mean Girls.” Is there a connection to that 11 year-old?
When I sat down to do the 2014 goals and planning for the Hot Mommas Project, somehow, I knew it was going to be different….I shaped my four major 2014 goal categories around the experience that day, pretty much violating every covenant of planning.
