Take Charge!

Who runs the world? Women!

I’m totally biased, but I’ve always felt that women make the best leaders. After all, we are the ultimate multi-taskers, organizers, disciplinarians and issue resolvers. And for the first time in centuries, talented women around the world are residing over countries as presidents and prime ministers and leading global businesses with aplomb. I also have a sneaking suspicion that America will have a female president in four years.

So, what are you waiting for?

In 2013, speak up for that promotion at work, start your own business, get the skills you need by going back to school, or finally end an unsupportive relationship.

Whatever it is, you can do it because…

We must relinquish the paradigm of men as power with women as support and instead embrace the image of both men and women as powers, with each supporting each other. And any man who holds a woman back is not a man a woman can afford to be with. A woman has a mighty and sacred task to perfom on earth. She will not be able to fulfill her function if she remains with a man who derides her glory.

Women are not powerless. We just pretend we are. We do this in large part because we are afraid of the punishment inflicted on us when we dare to be who we really are.
