Ladies,
Yesterday, I interviewed with Mel Robbins of Make It Happen with Mel Robbins. Make is Happen is a nationally syndicated radio show that airs from 1-3pm EST, Monday - Friday. Ms. Robbins, is on the Donny Deutsh show the Big Idea often.

Well, I called in and asked the question about how to compete with the big boys that are politically connected.  Mel’s response to me was..............

If you are not already politically connected, get out of the business.  What?  Did I really hear what she just said?

What was she thinking?  It is really hard to make in business as a woman and have another women tell you to get out of the business, because she did not really have a good answser to your question is heartless.  

I could have taken her answer a little more serious, maybe if she had said something like “You should re-organize your stategy or review your businees plan again.  Not just GET out of the business.

Now she has me questioning myself as to why I am doing this again?  

I did not have a good response for her comment, I just sat there quietly, not really comprehending what just happened.
She new that I was stunned by her response and said that sometimes people don’t like what she has to say!

All I can remember is the oxiom that when life hand you lemons, make lemonade.

Got any lemons you want to share ladies?

Diane

      Your question about how to compete with the big boys that are politically connected.

      Lemons ; My experience in the U. S. Military
      Marine Corp.
      Officers against Enlisted
      Males vs Females
      Political influenced vs Political influential

      Lemonade:

      Remembering those hard weeks of boot camp and that we all crawled through the same trenches, and slept in the same bunks. Remembering that we all once were reduced to equality.

      So, when you think to : ” how to compete with the big boys that are politically connected?”

      Pull up the boot straps and remember we all are EQUAL and that is what the Women Suffrage around the globe ’ WOMEN FOUGHT to COMPETE and we already got the secrets and the clues ....pick up a WOMEN IN EARLY HISTORY between 1700’s - 1920’s when we gained the right to VOTE and participate in politics.

      My final research paper for my portfolio to Graduate school  will be : Roaring 1920’s Fighting Voting Women to the Women 2000’s Flighty ways.

      When and where did we forget the FIGHT

      BIG BOYS influence, BIG GIRLS influential  

      Whats more POWERFUL ?

      THIS is OUR YEAR _ 2008

      When have we had more women in the forefront for politics?
