Last But Not Least (some empowerment)
Everyone talks about getting a mentor, but finding the right mentor is key. A woman should always have at least three types of people in her corner –
- a woman to coach and guide you through your growth, because ruling the world requires you to stretch yourself emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
- a woman who has already successfully done what you’re trying to do so she can teach you how to get there.
- a successful male to give her another perspective and outlook.
