Where are all the mentors?

Ask many young girls today which females they look up to today and beyond their family members you’ll probably get a string of celebrities. Ask yourself the same questions and you might be met with deafening silence. I was. I cannot think of one female leader, in or out of the public eye that inspires me. Someone who is intelligent with qualities that show them to be human and flawed, but trying their best.

Many of the women that are out there in management and leadership roles are completely self-serving. Maybe it’s because they found it so hard to get there that the only way they could do it was to trample over everyone else and barricade themselves in at the top. But that’s not motivating to me. That’s not what I look up to. And because I have no one to look up to, I find it hard to see myself in a leadership role.

I haven’t come across anyone who can say, “this is how I did it. This is how I keep at the top of my game. This is how I make it fit with my life.” So I have resorted to googling for these type of women. I know plenty who work extremely hard for a role that is 2 or 3 steps from the top. They easily work 80+ hour weeks. They work weekends. Everything has to be slotted in around the demands of a business that ultimately lines someone else’s pockets.

That someone I imagine is not doing 80 hour weeks and probably spending time with the family at weekends. Most likely they’re male. Maybe my view is not the reality, in every case, but it’s how I see it from my level. And I have no one to show me anything different.
If you have a female role model, please let me know. In the meantime, it’s back to google……

  9. Interesting blog post. What I would like to make contributions about is that laptop memory is required to be purchased in case your computer cannot cope with everything you do by using it. One can install two RAM memory boards with 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should check the manufacturer’s documentation for one’s PC to make certain what type of memory space is essential.

  10. I have figured out some considerations through your blog post post. One other thing I would like to express is that there are lots of games on the market designed specifically for toddler age young children. They involve pattern acceptance, colors, dogs, and shapes. These commonly focus on familiarization rather than memorization. This keeps little ones occupied without feeling like they are learning. Thanks

  11. I do not even know the way I stopped up right here, but I assumed this put up was good. I do not realize who you might be but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger if you happen to are not already ;) Cheers!

  12. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  13. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I am hoping the same high-grade web site post from you in the future too. In fact your creative writing skills has inspired me to get my own website going now. Actually blogging is spreading its wings and growing rapidly. Your write up is a good example.

  14. Very efficiently written story. It will be beneficial to everyone who employess it, as well as myself. Keep doing what you are doing – can’r wait to read more posts.

  15. Thanks for your publication. One other thing is always that individual states in the United states of america have their particular laws which affect property owners, which makes it extremely tough for the the nation’s lawmakers to come up with a fresh set of guidelines concerning property foreclosure on homeowners. The problem is that every state has own regulations which may interact in a negative manner on the subject of foreclosure procedures.

  16. Of course I like your web site, however you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very silly to inform you. Nevertheless I’ll definitely come back again!

  17. Thanks for your post. I’d prefer to say that the price of car insurance will vary from one coverage to another, since there are so many different issues which contribute to the overall cost. One example is, the model and make of the car or truck will have a large bearing on the price. A reliable outdated family car or truck will have a less expensive premium compared to a flashy expensive car.

  18. My brother suggested I would possibly like this website. He was once entirely right. This put up truly made my day. You can not consider simply how so much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
