*** In case you missed it! ***
Do you work in a male-dominated workplace? Do you struggle with earning respect without losing your femininity?
It’s a serious problem for a lot of women in high technology, law, finance, and other traditionally-male industries. One client came to me with her beautiful, long curly hair in a tight bun. She said whenever she lets her hair down or wears a dress, she gets negative feedback from fellow employees. Apparently, femininity made them “uncomfortable.”
Aside from telling her to completely ignore the commentary, I suggested she might want to look for a better job. It *is* possible to succeed in male-dominated workplaces without checking your femininity at the door. Business consultant and midlife women’s champion Olga Szakal wanted to learn more, so she interviewed me on Mommy Talk Live, an incredible Facebook broadcast that’s like YouTube for FB users.
