    Hi bSmart ladies and women who are new to this community!

    I wanted to share my own follow-up to "Chapter 1: The Inner Critic" from 'Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead.'

    For years, my inner critic was:

    3. Ostensibly, the voice of reason.
    4. The voice of 'You aren't Ready Yet'

    And to be honest, I'm still not sure if I'm being strategic or with taking additional and thorough preparations with my goals. For example, with bSmart, I didn't go out and tell the world I created an online mentorship and networking community. Instead, I've spent 5-6 years getting feedback on the technology and programs to figure out the best way to offer this to women.

    In some respects, this aligns with Tara's (the author) chapter on leaping, but at times I wondered if I've held myself back. For example, should I be fundraising instead of self-funding? Should I be paying for PR and marketing?

    It's hard to know whether you're being strategic or holding yourself back by requiring more preparation, more education, more crossing of t's and dotting of i's.

    What do the women in this community think is an appropriate balance for leaping versus being prepared and strategic?

    Are women in particular holding themselves back either from nature or nurture by being over-prepared for their goals?

    What "Inner Critic" voice do you identify with the most?

    1. Harsh, rude, mean
    2. Binary
    3. Ostensible, the voice of reason.
    4. The voice of 'You aren't Ready Yet'
    5. The voice of 'You aren't good at math / negotiating / technical stuff."
    6. The voice of body-perfectionism
    7. The tape.
    8. A broken record.
    9. Irrational but persistent
    10 The one-two punch.
    11. The inner critic may take inspiration from critical people in your life.

    To get the conversation started, I'm tagging Michelle Hoppe-Long Amanda McNaught Mary Bemis Anna Silverman Jessica Li Ursula Choi Diane Im Angelina Eimannsberger Amanda Sannella Gwendolyn Crafts Amanda Wowk Anne Whiting Yirou Yu Tracy Kim Jacqui Gabriella Bower Nina Wanda Schell Gonzalez Courtnie Weber Lilly Pianin

  • Hi Amanda!

    How's your September goal going of becoming a more confident and effective speaker to build strong client relationships and be a better leader for your team?

    One trick I have in being an effective speaker is to 'listen' while I talk. Whether I'm giving a presentation or speaking by phone, I try to listen to the non-verbal communication - the energy in the room, etc. and speak from that improvisational dialogue with openness and sincerity instead of speaking something rehearsed from my mind.

    How's it going for you?

  • Hi Amanda!

    I wanted to connect you with Molly Goodspeed. Molly is a Junior at DePauw University in Chicago majoring in Digital Media with an emphasis on photography. As you and Molly share a similar aesthetic and you work in digital media, I thought you might be able to share with Molly some career opportunities for her as a photographer majoring in digital media.

    Hope you two are able to connect!!

    Hi bSmart babes!

    I’m kicking of the “If you can dream it, you can do it” mentorship series!

    If you could be a business owner or entrepreneur in anything, if you gave yourself permission to dream big and listen to your inner instincts, what would you be?

    Now that you have your vision - list 3 attainable and specific smaller goals (e.g. designating time towards your goal every day, creating a vision board for motivation, or bringing up your idea to friends and family for support), that will help you reach your big goal

    My answer:
    I have always been happiest when I am doing something creative, but feel that my creative hobbies are the first to fall to the wayside when I’m busy. One of my goals is to create a jewelry business (even if just in a small setting, like on Etsy). My 3 specific and smaller goals I need in order to achieve my large goal are:

    1. Setting aside and investing my money in higher quality material and more supplies so that I can make better jewelry and grow my business.
    2. Designating time each day dedicated to working on creating jewelry and making pieces that I am proud of, using my new materials.
    3. Creating an Etsy account to advertise and expand my business.

    I’m tagging: Angelina Eimannsberger Amanda Sannella Bridget Duggan Sofia Rosa Bianchi Tracy Kim Lilly Pianin

    **Copy / paste the above question as a new wall post or group post, then tag 5 bSmart women for them to answer too!
    Include these instructions when you copy/paste to spread the big dreamer positivity and mentorship!**
