GirlPower Quotes

We believe in the power of a good quote to get your through the day. Dr. Smith always seems to have the right thing to say at the right time and she’s awfully fond of pulling out a quote. She says that we should collect “Encouraging quotes by inspiring women,” and that we should feel free to start coming up with our own. I don’t know if we’re there yet, but here it goes – we’re collecting girl power, inspiring and encouraging quotes. Each day we’ll post a new one. Feel free to comment on it or to submit your own quote. If we like it, we’ll post it – and make sure we give you a shout out!

Quote of the Day – Career

"For true independence you have to make a job, not just take a job" – Joline Godfrey – writer, business executive

Great reminder for girls of all ages.  To be truly independent, try defining your job into something that plays to your strengths and allows you to make it your own.  If you’re just doing your job, most likely you are not developing yourself or it into a critical part of the organization and you run the risk of becoming replaceable.

It’s important to tell our daughters that they can’t just expect a job to last a lifetime -most of us can’t expect that either.  We know things changes, economies, industries, even the very nature of our job description.  If we allow ourselves to be limited by just what is in our job, we run the risk of being  run over by those changes.  So by making a job and starting to define it to be better targeted to our interests and abilities allows us to show our strengths and develop unique attributes, and perhaps develop a unique job that only we can fill – thus helping to ensure that someone will always need us.  So go on, girl, start creating your unique, fulfilling dream job today.  Don’t be defined by the simpe job title "Accountant", instead try thinking more along the lines of "I am an accountant who specializes in helping small women owned business get on their feet and grow them." It might be the starting point to better defining a profitable niche to focus on and making a name for yourself, independently, rather that just being another "accountant".

Success and Failure

It’s how you deal with failure, not how you deal with success, that determine who in the end, really makes it. – Jane Pratt – Magazine Editor

Just remember, we’ll all fail at some point, maybe a lot.  Sometimes it’s simply the fact that we win more than we lose that keeps ahead of the game.  We learn from both winning and losing, but we tend to remember more from our mistakes!!

So share this with a girl you love, and keep trying!
