Female Leadership 2011: Ideas for the Successful Business Woman, Professional, or Female Entrepreneur

Influence expert, Dr. Karen Keller, tackles 2011 head on with the 5 critical things every business women, professional, and entrepreneur needs to know for ultimate success and life balance.

Fort Wayne, IN, March 02, 2011 --(PR.com)-- According to Keller, “The successful business woman needs specific must-haves to move her business beyond parameters set. She is smart to realize what she missed and what she should ask for.”

She adds, “To achieve this, she must reflect back on past professional mistakes or oversights, embrace them, learn from them, then move forward and adapt accordingly. Women with real power and prowess are like cats … they bounce back quickly and always land on their feet.”

Dr. Keller’s ‘top 5’ success tips for the successful business woman include:

A Rolodex That Rocks. Networking is every woman’s secret weapon. Not only having the names and contact information but building and cultivating the relationship that goes along with it. Without a ‘power network’ you will never truly benefit from all the people who have crossed your path.

A Clear Vision. Knowing where you are going is essential especially when you get off track. Understanding how your vision connects to your core values and beliefs will grant you greater access to realizing that vision. Stay focused and maintain clarity. A mind map is great for visually laying your business path to profits.

A Flexible ‘Success’ Design. Every woman needs to build flexibility into her ‘success’ design. If you remain rigid, refusing to bend, then you will break. Disappointment sets in, rendering you incapable of moving in another direction or taking a side road to your goal. Try to go with the flow and adapt to change accordingly.

A Passion For Your Work. Build your business success around what you love – something that is innately and endlessly motivating to you. Doing this will open many doors for you where you will find more of what you are passionate about. Passion is ignited by a fire within, and that fire is conveyed in all that you do and will become contagious.

A Strong Constitution. It’s a tough world out there. Put on your ‘armor’ but don’t become hardened. Your core work ethic will keep you strong and deflect the many arrows that my come your way. Also, remain level-headed and open-minded for complete balance.

Keller concluded, “When it comes to professional success, every woman has the power within them to excel and achieve greatness. Sometimes we just need some validation, direction, or inspirational guidance to set us on the right path. As in life, with professional achievement the journey is just as important as the destination.”
