Find out how to live a daring life! I keep asking how do you become a Titan? No, I don’t want to be a god or God. I just want to make things happen. I’m studying female Titans in the modern day. It’s an informal passionate investigation for my personal curiosity.
First, you have to understand the definition of a Titan: one that is gigantic in size or power; one that stands out for greatness of achievement.
This Titan curiosity has developed because I can’t “stay where I am.” I’m driven. I enjoy a challenge to keep going. I’m not an athletic person being a six-foot tall woman, which may have defined a mythological Titan at one time. My gym coach in sixth grade begged me to play basketball. I just don’t like to sweat and think exercise is mindless for me personally. I do admire athletes. I understand there’s a HUGE head game and LOTS of practice to rise to the top of a sport. I want to exercise my brain. I keep asking how the Titans of business get from an individual-with-an-idea to a-team-of-people-earning-millions. Does this spark a hint of curiosity for you?
I love to read. It’s a good thing. I have a profile on s-e-v-e-r-a-l social media platforms to keep up with what’s happening in the world. A few business Titans have popped up on my reading radar. Recently, Shonda Rhimes name kept cycling through because of her impact on diversity in media and association with Oprah – who no longer even needs her last name mentioned.
I started hearing people talk about saying ‘yes’ to everything. I wasn’t hearing any qualifier following the ‘yes.’ I personally am saying ‘no,’ so I can stay laser focused through the crazy of running two businesses. I have a small team and several vendors that keep The Concierge Office Suites, a full-service office space, and Wing and a Prayer, a commercial broiler poultry farm running. I certainly don’t consider myself a business Titan – yet.
I keep asking how I can do things better and grow my earning power while helping other women do the same. I’ve been moderating several Lean In – WomenGroundBreakers Circle events. I keep craving more and more information about female leaders and their rise. I want to be a part of helping women step out of their comfort zone and pursue their dreams with practical answers that really work. I had been following all the video and resources available for education offered through the Lean In website, as I develop content to be shared during our Circle events. I just happened to stumble across Shonda Rhimes video TED talk, “My year of saying yes to everything.” I had to watch it.
