She Used the “C” Word!

Good Monday morning Goody Gals! I want to discuss a topic today that hits very close to home, woman to woman competition vs. collaboration. Why is this a thing? So many women feel as though there’s only room for one powerful, beautiful, strong bad ass in their space when in reality, it’s just not true.

This mindset is what hinders us when we are trying to be productive entrepreneurs…a lot of us just don’t know how to collaborate without feeling threatened. I’ve personally encountered this many times and it just boggles my mind. There’s enough space for all of us to boost each other up and help wherever possible.

3 Tips to Effective Collaboration

  1. SPEAK UP
    • There’s nothing that kills the vibe of a collaboration like a one-sided conversation. The purpose is to work together, speak up and share ideas…so do that!
  2. R-E-S-P-E-C-T (I hope you sang that as you read it)
    • Respect each others voice and input. You can’t have a healthy collaboration without respect.
  3. YOU BETTA RECOGNIZE
    • Be sure to recognize all ideas that are thrown on the table and give credit where credit is due. Don’t be the chick that tries to take ownership of other’s great ideas…that’s not cool man.
