Last night I attended the Girl Geek Dinners Cape Town hosted at Cafe Royale in Sea Point and what a moving experience – yes we enjoyed bubbly, canapés and received one amazing Goodie Bag but what really inspired me was the Guest Speaker of the evening – Catherine Lückoff.
As a woman in business – whom has been around the block (although still very young) had a few (phenomenal) pointers on what it takes to be a successful woman in business; it really hit home with me!
Being very ambitious, hard-working and expecting (myself) to succeed with regards to all aspects of my life; when she said – “Expect Failure; it will happen” it struck a cord.
I think women tend to think that they should always be the BEST at everything; look after everyone and think twice about standing up to a man but this in actual fact – is not the case at all. She also mentioned that, women think themselves inferior to men in the working world but when they do succeed turns out to be a bitch – and to worsen the situation demotes other women below her.
Is this what the world has come to? Today I take a stand against being a woman in business and become, like Lückoff said “a person in the business world”.
Who’s with me?
