There I was sitting at the bar in a trendy Scottsdale restaurant (we have lots of those here!), having a glass of wine and dinner with a friend...minding my own business... When suddenly, out of the blue, a handsome, vibrant man in a crisp, button-down shirt sat down next to me. One thing led to another. And the next thing I knew, I was falling in love. The handsome, vibrant man was Michael. And that day was 6 months ago. When I started sheology back in 2013, I was single. In fact, I'd been single for a few years after leaving an unhealthy, destructive relationship that I'd kept trying to make.
I was talking to a friend the other day. She's a wicked smart physician who's just stepped into a leadership position in her healthcare system. She described the first meeting she attended in her new position: "I looked around the table and realized that I was the only woman sitting at the table." To be honest, it wasn't a surprise. Even though women now comprise 50% of medical school classes, there continues to be a paucity of women physicians in leadership positions. Whether or not you're a doctor is sort of beside the point. What's important here is that you realize that if you've been tagged for.
Recently, I've been writing and talking a lot about visibility. In fact, I created sheology for high-achieving women who desire to be high-profile leaders in the online marketplace, so of course I've been talkin' about visibility... But what you might not know is that visibility has not always been easy for me. In fact, until last year when I left my salaried position at the university to set about creating sheology, being visible was at once terrifying and exhilarating to me. (more…).
