Have you been in that position that as a woman entrepreneur you get so busy with your business and you find yourself running to a meeting but you don’t know what to wear?
Sometimes we get used to the reality: no make-up, not dressed up, we just get up and get some work done. Also, many women that we meet tell us that once they start the business, they don’t have time for parties anymore, no time for friends and fun. Well, welcome to the world of entrepreneurs ☺
At Global Woman we all have agreed in one principle: The Business should be easy, fun and profitable. This is what we have created in our reality and many women get curious to know: What is Global Woman Club about? How does it work? What is the model and the purpose of the meetings? It is very simple: We meet to connect with each other, to get to know about other women’s stories; how did they succeed and how can we do the same. If we already managed to succeed how can we help others find that direction?
So, once we understand this, then we want to make our business work as well, and therefore we start exploring ways of doing business partnerships, joint ventures and collaborations. At the Global Woman Club, it is not only about learning but more about being, doing and taking actions.
In order to enjoy this journey, we don’t want to simply to show that we are strong and smart women. We often hear that sometimes people say: “Oh she needs more feminine energy – or she lost the feminine energy”. Do you think that sometimes the best way to connect with that energy is when we look in the mirror and we loudly tell ourself: “You look great, you are beautiful, you are trendy … etc”. Perhaps we can’t do this all the time but if we find reasons to wake up, stand up, make up and show up to some events/meetings that make us feel beautiful but also at the same time we do some business, this can become our lifestyle. Business and Fashion can definitely be connected together.
We may invest a lot in our education, qualifications, trainings, self-development. We become experts, an authority in our fields. But we should never overlook our own resume as part of business.
We should never underestimate the power of our own image. The way we dress conveys more confidence within us and also we give a positive message to other people who potentially can become our clients. The right image gives us the sense of security and present us in a professional manner. This can make a huge difference.
We always emphasise the importance of the investment from inside and that is the most important one, but if we are in business, people are always going to judge us how we look, how we dress and how we present ourselves to the outside world. I remember a few years ago, when I had just started my business I was food shopping in my local area and a friend of mine called me saying:
“Hey guess what, I came at this event and it is really good, it is not far from where you are, why you don’t join us?. It has not started yet, you can make it in time”.
“But I am not dressed up for meetings. I just came to do some shopping” I replied.
“Come on, she said, don’t worry about that. You always look great”.
I don’t know how she convinced me but I ended up with no make-up and with my trainers. I never remember feeling so embarrassed. People didn’t show that much interest to network with me because they may have been thinking “not important – not interested” and just before I left I saw someone that I knew, and I was so happy. I smiled at her and we started talking. Guess what she asked?
“Are you taking care of yourself?”. Oh dear, I had to explain the whole story. Since that day I never went out of the house without make up and dressing up, even if I am going to the supermarket. You never know who you are going to meet there, and perhaps a phone call can change your plans.
So here we have a special invitation. If you are a woman entrepreneur, this is your time to connect, have an afternoon tea, some fun and joy, and, show your style with a photoshoot and catwalk. You can also try the latest women’s fashion clothing.
