Girl Power!

This week seems to be a week full of amazing Girl Power!   First it was my BYU presentation to the Women Entrepreneurs who were all AWESOME ladies.   And then today I sat down and spent several hours with Mia Love, who is running for Congress here in Utah.  She is AMAZING!  She is real and down to earth and she gets it..she really gets it.  That is SO REFRESHING!   I would vote for her any day and so should all of you!  She needs all the support she can get for the election so jump onboard and do what you can to help her.  We need more people like her representing our interests in government.

Tomorrow I am going to join Mia Love and Condoleezza Rice for lunch, which is just one more day of Girl Power to add to an amazing week of fabulous, unstoppable women.  Let’s face it, Condoleezza is the epitome of Girl Power, and the best kind of it.  It is so exciting to see talented women using their skills to make the world a better place!  Women are truly amazing.

I get asked all the time how I feel about being a woman in business…and the funny thing is that I am always asked as if it is a negative to me that I am a woman in business!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!  Being a woman in business is the best thing ever!  Women bring so much to the table.  They have an intuition that is truly incredible.  Where men tend to look at the facts only, women tend to look at the facts too but then they trust their gut on top of that.  Men can sit in a room together for six hours and no absolutely nothing about one another, where a woman can sit in the room with anyone (man or woman) and you give us ten minutes and we will know every detail of your entire life…just think how valuable that can be when it comes to doing business!  A woman who is confident (but not cocky), a woman who is intelligent, a woman who has integrity, and a woman who takes care of herself, is a woman who is unstoppable!  And let’s just talk straight…from the time a woman is a little itty bitty baby girl, she knows how to get what she wants.  Have you ever watched a little girl wrap her daddy around her finger…it’s like watching pure magic.  And no one even taught her how to do it – she is simply born with it :).   And have you ever observed a teenage girl who wants something?  She is a natural born negotiator in ways that are truly mind boggling.  Again, it is a natural born gift that women just have.  So my answer to the question as to whether I find any disadvantage to being a woman when it comes to business is a resounding NO!  Being a woman in business (or politics) is a HUGE asset in my opinion.

So ladies, today’s blog are dedicated to all of you amazing creatures that make this world a better place with your presence!  Now get out there and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!  Oh, and for you men reading this blog – get out there and support and appreciate those amazing women in your lives.  They deserve it!

Have a great FRIDAY everyone and enjoy your weekend!

    I was in the same ward as Mia for several years in Saratoga Springs. My mom made cakes several times for her daughter’s birthdays. She’s an amazing woman! She’s got my vote! Tell her Tracy Bullock & Jesie Shepherd say hello!

    Mia and Condoleezza are completely amazing. Both of their talks at the RNC convention were awesome. Condoleezza was the picture and defination of grace and class. She blew it out of sight and knocked me off my feet. How great to be able to be with them. Women are awesome.

    Amy – Mia enjoyed meeting you too, and asked me to thank you again for meeting and coming to the Condi Rice event. I’m a guy, and it was a great girl power week for me too.
