Happy International Women’s Day!

It's finally here. We are so grateful you came along for this journey. You made our day.

We've talked about so many good and positive ways we can empower the women in our lives. But, our last way may just cause a riot!

Take Care of YOU!

Yes, we're talking radical, true and profoundly simple. While it may sound counter intuitive, how many times have you heard women sacrificing themselves for those dear to them.

It’s quite normal. We all do it. It’s honorable and the way most women are wired. But what if today we were to take the airlines’ advice and secure our own mask before helping our children or those around us who act like children?

Talk about a revolution. What if you were the rock thrown in the pond creating a ripple? Be the example of good self-care. Take yourself to lunch. Get a mani/pedi. Buy Lifetherapy products and start your own self-nurturing rituals. Okay, we had to plug something, right? The point is when you decide to take care of yourself, others see it and are empowered to do the same.

Take the Afternoon Off

Did you know that IWD is a national holiday in many countries: Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China (for women only), Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar (for women only), Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal (for women only), Russia, Tajikistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia... and yet the US is not on that list!

So maybe we women in the United States need to take matters into our own hands and honor ourselves. Yep, we think you should give yourself permission to simply take the day off or, at the very least, leave early today. You deserve it.

So to sum it all up, here are 8 simple ways to empower women:

  1. Make a decision to be a source of hope
  2. Mentor and support other women
  3. Share your experiences
  4. Keep growing
  5. Make plans to celebrate on Tuesday, March 8th
  6. Partner with change agents
  7. Honor the women barrier breakers and all the progress
  8. Take care of YOU

We love you and hope you’ve enjoyed our empowering women series. What has been your biggest takeaway? We’d love to hear from you.
