Celebrating International Women’s Day together

Posted by on Mar 6, 2014 in Miscellaneous | 4 comments

Who Is In Your Sisterhood Circle? We all have women we admire who teach us the true meaning of sisterhood, setting an example that’s the opposite of the mean girl that Kathy talks about in her CNN featured report. This International Women’s Day, express your gratitude to that person by tagging them with our Sisterhood of Success crest. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #IWDSIsx when sharing via social media, to help us track who the most honored women are. We may then be able to feature them on the site in weeks to come. From...

On Becoming Your Editor

Posted by on Mar 5, 2014 in Women's Leadership Community | 6 comments

Like many others, first time I heard of the Hot Mommas Project, I wanted to join it. At the time, I didn’t think I had an exciting enough story to tell that could be entered in the case library competition. And by the time I did? The experience was so raw I had problems getting it down to the required number of words in time. But I digress.   Coming soon: A central home for our Hot Mommas Project Community The point is, there was something about the Hot Mommas Project I wanted to belong to at the time. Actually, that’s not...

Building a World Where a Sisterhood of Success Replaces Mean Girls

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?

#49 – 15 Needles Goal Setting: Building a Million Dollar Business Part Time

Here's the short version: I had 15 needles of lidocaine injected in my head on December 31, 2013. 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.

#18: PASSION – Do What you Love

Do you remember your career dreams of yesteryear, and then - kind of this halting screeching break sound like in a movie? And here you are... x (xx?) years later, in a cubicle, corner office, home office - NOT living the dream? I was forced to confront this reality when reading friend, coach, and Hot Mommas Project founding author Kathy Caprino's piece on the topic in Forbes.

#17b: BE FINANCIALLY LITERATE – Rich Sister, Poor Sister – 10 Tips to Save Time and Money

By @ChiefHotMomma. This is part of the Power Plays series. Continued from #17a. Now let’s talk about money.  Very much like the illustrative tale of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, this is the tale of “Rich Sister, Poor Sister.” In this scenario, the sisters make the SAME amount of money each year, they just spend it differently. 6. Setting Limits. Just as with time management in Part I, setting limits around spending is key. In a dual-income household, sometimes it’s as simple as living off of one salary and saving the other....

#17a: WORK SMART – 10 Tips to Save Time and Money

By @ChiefHotMomma. This is part of the Power Plays series. Today I spoke at the amazing Year Up, a highly-selective program which “empowers urban talent to reach their potential” through an intensive technical skills training program. I told the group I’d put together some materials to follow up my talk, and this post is part of that. It was originally posted on a finance blog. What does Year Up - a tech training organization –  have to do with women, my Women’s Entrepreneurship Class, and the global...
