Becoming A Woman Of Influence



Influence is merely the capability to have an effect on the character, development or behavior of something. Do you want to be that woman of influence? I hope so. We’re counting on you actually.

The movie I talk about in this podcast is not a real life. Sandra Bullock acted out, and was determined to have influence about historical buildings. She really wanted the community center where she grew up to stay intact. But she had enough insight in that moment, when she saw the look on her parents’ faces, she knew that the building had been torn down. And she knew what she was doing was not working. So she changed the way or the approach to influence her agenda of historic preservation.

I use this movie as an example in this podcast to show how you can become a woman of influence. What’s the movie?  Listen and find out.

Being Politically Savvy



Whenever people’s priority, their values and their interests come together, chances are some type of politicking is going to take place.

So where are your priorities right now? Can you easily define your values? Hopefully you know what your interests are? If you’re going to make sure that those priorities, values and interests are really going to become reality, being politically savvy just might have to be in order. Politics. It’s just inevitable. And they involve intentional acts, from you, to influence, enhance, and protect those priorities, those values and those interests.

That’s what I am going to talk about today. Yes, it’s necessary to be politically savvy, so as to have the best desired outcomes you’re looking for.

Catherine Lang-Cline from Portfolio Creative



This episode is about taking your business to the next level.  For part of the podcast, I’m going to interview Catherine Lang-Cline. She’s President and Co-Creator of Portfolio Creative, and she has a great story. She’s done an amazing job growing her business. It looks easy from the outside, but she’s been through everything and more that you are going through right now growing your business.

What are the barriers that most women feel are there to getting to that next level? A lot of times you are this original, and you have an idea and you’re different and you’re passionate and you might want to do things. We cover how Catherine overcame these barriers in this podcast.
