Words of Wisdom Day 13 featuring Robbie Hallowell

What does 'community' mean to you: 

“My community is made up of women I can safely share my joys, celebrations, sorrows, concerns, ventings, and various life questions with. They listen without judgement, they may gently hold me accountable, they forgive me for my mistakes and are always have my back and my heart. “

What words of advice do you have for women seeking out deeper community and connection:

“Be open and non judgmental. 

Be willing to seek the connection even when it might not feel comfortable. 

You just never know where an “acquaintance “ or a conversation will lead.”

What are your thoughts when it comes to personal growth:

“I feel very lucky to have had many different women come into my life that brought very different thoughts, opportunities, and knowledge. My mind was opened to alternative ideas that a small town girl from northern NY might never have heard of. I was given and created the gift of not only being comfortable with myself but loving myself.”

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be: 

“Don’t be afraid, embrace being different. 

Never stop learning, exploring  or discovering life. “

What do you love about being a woman:

“Everything!”

“My community of women is made up of many very different groups and ages.  I used to criticize myself for being like a chameleon, blending in with each group. I've learned that all these groups were parts of me and I didn’t need to chose one. It’s what made me whole and approachable by others. I love being included in tribes of young women, elders and peers. 

I believe my willingness to embrace and explore new ideas was passed on to my amazing daughter which gives me the greatest joy.”

'Words of Wisdom' Day 3 featuring Linda Goodspeed

What does 'community' mean and look like to you: 
“For me, it's the different group of friends that I have. I have my community from my temple, I have my coaching community , I have my different work communities that include people from my different jobs and of course those from my elementary, high school and college.”

What words of advice do you have for women seeking out deeper community and connection:
“You need to peel the layers off of yourself. And you must allow to show yourself to be vulnerable and take a chance. Not to be so polite and careful. I think this is why many women aren't successful connecting with men, because they aren’t real enough. Need to be real, open and authentic.”

What are your thoughts when it comes to personal growth:
“ You need to continually grow. If you are getting married, or pregnant, you may need to take a break for a bit. But in each job you should take on something new or move to a new role once you know 80% of it. Challenge yourself to grow. Don't be too comfortable.”

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be: 
“Never stop going to the gym you idiot! ha-ha. I think I grew 
throughout my life and I am thankful for it. I have had a wonderful time learning about life, and about myself and allowing myself the luxury of getting certified in coaching. I love that.”

What do you love about being a woman:
“The power in it.”
