Over the past year I have had the delight to be the National Crusader for the League of Extraordinary Women (the League). It sounds like a grand title for an even grander organisation and what the League is achieving in the space of motivating and mentoring female entrepreneurs (particularly young females) is incredible. I feel honoured to be a part of the League whose mission is to create a ‘real opportunity for women to get together to be inspired, empowered and to create long last relationships.’
The four founders, the State Crusaders and myself each take turns writing blogs each week and there is a great resource of material accumulating. The blogs vary from discussions of social media and marketing; how to work smarter rather than harder; questioning the commerciality, scalability and profitability of your business; how women can form strong business relationships and I personally focus many of my blogs on the power of the mind/mental health/efficiency and of course how you can use your passion (for me sport) for the benefit of the wider community.
My recent post ‘How stressed are you today?’ was provoked after reading a leadership article on Smart Blog and reflecting on the attitude to stress in a corporate context. Food for thought for many of us – http://www.leagueofextraordinarywomen.com.au/how-stressed-are-you-today
