Four years ago I got asked by a dear friend to sit on a panel for a Google Ventures sponsored event which was hosted by Autodesk. The topic was "Mental Toughness for Women in Tech."
I thanked my friend, and politely declined.
At the time and for the past 25 years, my clients were world-class athletes typically ages 16-22... not the best, brightest and most successful women in technology residing in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and beyond.
Full transparency, I was scared.
Why would they listen to me? I essentially helped the top 1% teens and young adults to be their best, consistently and under highly important or high stakes situations.
Thankfully my friend at Autodesk was persistent, and fortunately I decided that my voice deserved to be heard. I prepared extensively (and then even prepared a lot more), showed up, delivered, and my business was forever changed... especially after I heard this from one of the attendees:
"My company is the culmination of the blood, sweat, tears and it’s a dream for myself and my team. When it’s game-time, and I have to approach VC’s for funding, it’s my Olympics."
She went on to say that she never learned how to be courageous, the science of how to influence others to stand with her in unity, and how to prepare mentally for a challenging journey or for those defining moments.
Now she does.
Have you ever felt like you had something important to say, or something valuable to contribute, but you kept quiet or played small?
If so, it’s time to decide, which literally means "death of any other option." It’s time to decide if you will show up as you were meant to and have the impact and joy that is rightfully yours.
If you do, who else benefits?
Who is impacted if you don’t?

Do you feel like everything is catching up with you?
Overwhelmed by your current schedule and possibly underwhelmed by the progress you’re making on initiatives that matter to you?
It’s definitely that time of year, and you are not alone. The good news is that you can have a "mini intervention" with yourself, your schedule, and the impact you’re having, so you can feel less overwhelmed and more in control and on purpose. You’ll likely be more fun to be around too:)
This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
