I follow anything that has to do with women in business, women in tech, women in sales...I am a WomenPreneur after all and so are you. To help you tackle your day read these 3 articles (1 included below is a video too with cartoons).
To help you tackle your day, your week I wanted to share some fun tidbits, quotes and articles that I found really inspirational.
- This article is so great. We all have read about how Princess Taylor (who I love) called out Apple (yes the APPLE we all know and love) for their policy on not paying artists during a 3 month trial period of the new streaming service they are offering. After she wrote about her concerns for not being paid for her music in this 3 month trial period Apple reversed their policy!
- 17 hours after her note to Apple about why she felt this was wrong they took it back.
- She is a BUSINESS WOMAN. She is smart, real smart. Don't take her for just a pop star.
LESSON from Tayla: Don't forget that whatever role you have in life you are a business woman. Know what you want and go after it. If you feel that something is wrong or not just - speak your opinions and try to make a change.
You can read Taylor Swift's letter to Apple here. (do it).
I really love her. She is passionate about her job and she is a force to reckon with. We could all learn some business lessons from Ms. Taylor.
You can be a negotiator like Taylor. Make sure you are firm in what you want and go after what you want. She shows us that if you know what you want out of a deal you can make it happen.
The US Treasury has a decision to make and its a douzy. Its a lovely thing for women and we should all be excited about this development. We are looking to replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill. This next face of America's ten dollar bill is going to be a woman! Yes, maybe one day you could also be on the cover of a $10 dollar bill one day. Set your goals high and work your way there. These women sure did that.
Work hard and maybe one day you could be the face of a bill as well. :)
There are 6 ladies in the running but the one that I LOVE THE MOST is the CEO and CO Founder of Birchbox...
Katia Beauchamp, co-founder and CEO of Birchbox ---- ummmm, I love love love this one! YOU GO GIRL.
Next up movies to inspire us to get in touch with our emotions.
I will leave you with this article and this trailer for this movie. I will be seeing this movie this week and will let you know my thoughts on it. :)
