Last week I got the opportunity to attend an amazing event hosted by Essence and Northwestern Mutual. The Path to Power panel of total girl bosses spilled ALL the tea on some juicy topics from money mindset, to mentorship, relationships, and being a girl boss!
I mean… I can barely put into words the brilliance on one stage and the amount of takeaways I scribbled down! If you weren’t able to come out then, honey, you missed out but fear not, Beauty Boss. Here are a few of my key takeaways that I walked away with at Path To Power!
“There is a world that is waiting on your greatness and when you show up for it, it will show up for you.” -Allyson Byrd
This quote really hit home for me. So often we think that simply “showing up” and being present should show for something. The reality is it’s not just about “showing up” but being clear and intentional about what you showed up for. As Allyson explains, “we have to show up and say I showed up to eat, and this is what I want on the menu.” Don’t fool yourself into believing that being a hard worker is going to get you to where you’re trying to go. It’s being a SMART worker that is going to get you there, so be intentional about your moves and plan out your success!
“Pay yourself first, and if you cannot then you need to look yourself in the mirror.” -Anitra Blue-Francis
This Northwestern Mutual
Financial Advisor explained how sometimes it is HARD to hold up the mirror to yourself and admit that things are not working. That does NOT mean give up, but it means that you need to be honest with yourself FIRST so that you can recognize that something needs to change. Perhaps that means trading your Audi in for a Honda (we love Honda’s). Perhaps that means downgrading your home. Or maybe it just means that you need to up your hustle! Whatever the case, it is important to set aside your pride and put yourself in the power seat to make smart decisions for the betterment of the long haul!
