I love it when I find somebody or something that inspires me. Today it was Spanx. Not the pants, although they are amazing it was their founder.
The one, the only Sara Blakely. A bad ass boss woman who supports others with her posts, her generosity, her wisdom, her experience and so much more.
I saw this first hand this year when she hired an up-and-coming local college graduate at her firm. Next time was when COVID hit and she directed funds to her Red Backpack grant program. I saw it again today with the post above on LinkedIn. What an influencer. What a shining example for women in business.
In today’s world when so much is crazy and uncertain she points to herself. She uses herself as an example. She talks about the non-traditional path she traveled to get where she is today.
She talks about hard work, challenging times and starting with her own daydream. She chipped away at her daydream until she could sustain herself and others.
What a beautiful thing. Success is a great but those who share their successes, experience and know-how with others is equally beautiful.
Keeping with the name of the post, what is your daydream? What are you doing to make that dream a reality?
Don’t have a daydream? Starting dreaming know. You will at least enjoy the dreaming process even if you are not ready to take flight yourself.
