Spring Power  

Letter from our Editor-in-Chief, Serena Watson -- March 4, 2015

From the time we are little girls, it seems like we are stripped of our power in a million tiny ways. Display your natural born leadership skills on the playground, and you are classified as “bossy.” Try out for a sports team and they tell you you “throw like a girl.” As adults these moments of disempowerment are different, but they still happen. Maybe you try to be straightforward at work and your no nonsense approach earns you the “b!#ch” label.

Day to day, it gets hard to hold on to that feeling of being powerful. The feeling of confidence that urges you to speak up, take no crap and go for your dreams. Fostering this feeling -- through getting a resume building certification, taking on your first employee or even something as simple as updating your power look -- can only take you further. And if we really reflect on and invest in what makes us feel powerful, there would be no stopping us. 

As we wait for Spring to come through and heat things up, I’m focusing on living fully in my power each day. I’m spending no time on self defeating thoughts, labels others might apply or negativity of any kind. I’m doing my best to look good, feel good and do good work -- holding nothing back. I invite you to Power Up with me this spring and let the smart, talented and fly person you are shine through -- with no apologizes.

Stay Made!
