Today is International Women’s Day, but you probably noticed that because it’s all over social media.
I’m here for it.
Empowered women empower women. I wholeheartedly embrace this sentiment.
Last week I was consulting with a patient and as we were wrapping things up, I asked her if she had any additional questions.
Who owns this business? Whom are you affiliated with? Which hospital do you work for? Who is your boss?
My answer: I do. I own this business. I am The Boss.
I filled her in: I own this practice with my two partners, one of whom is in the process of retiring. Women own 3/4 of the practice. We have 60 employees, over 90% women. We promote women to leadership positions. We hire and train women. In a former life, I was an employee and now I’m not. I love that. It’s a lot more challenging but at the end of the day, The Buck Stops With Me.
I am here to:
- Care for Women
- Educate Women
- Support Women
- Advocate for Women
- Elevate Women
Her response: “Wow. That’s awesome.”
Happy International Women’s Day. Together we rise.
