Here we are and it’s Labor Day Weekend! Whew! Enjoy the last parts of summer with your family and friends. Take a minute to reflect on all that you are thankful for as well. This summer I was able to spend time with my grandchildren, ride in a hot air balloon, and help my husband with finishing up on the home improvement projects before the rainy weather comes.
I just attended the annual Kickoff Meeting for my local chapter of Soroptimists. This is in international organization and the name means “Best for Women”. We raise money to help many community organizations and provide scholarships to help girls attend college.
This started me thinking that when women are happy, the world is happy. Women are the heart of their families, help in their communities, and work with each other to make this world a better place. It doesn’t matter what kind of work we do, we make a difference.
Since this is Labor Day, I looked up some statistics about how we are getting paid in the workplace. We are still below men, earning about 80% of what they do. While we are working, I believe we should be able to contribute with joy and have financial freedom.
If you are not feeling joyful in your work, you are ready to shift to a different type of work, or are running a small business, I can help you. We can work on mindset and strategies that will get you moving forward. I would love to speak with you, just click on this link to schedule a time.
