Izađi iz ormara nepotrebne skromnosti

Ovo je blog samo za pametne i sposobne poduzetnice. Bliži se svjetski tjedan poduzetništva (oko 15.11.) i opet imam čast i privilegiju biti Predsjednica žirija za dodjelu Nagrada za najbolju hrvatsku poduzetnicu koju organizira vodeća mreža žena poduzetnica u ovom dijelu Europe, Women in Adria.

Koje su to divne žene, koje divne poslovne i životne priče. I koliko ih samo ima…

Imamo samo „dva problema“ kad biramo.

Jedan veliki – „natjerati“ žene da se prijave jer slušamo priče – ma joj, ja imam „samo“ X milijuna eura prihoda, tko sam ja da se prijavljujem, sigurno ima boljih od mene, ne želim sama sebe hvaliti, ne želim se praviti važna svojim radom, bolje da samo šutim i radim, da se ne ističem, ne želim se eksponirati, to što radim nije ništa posebno, to svatko zna i može…

Svake godine u ovo doba godine razmišljam o istim stvarima.

Poštujem da se ne žele svi eksponirati, no što ako samo mislite da niste DOVOLJNO DOBRE, DA NE VRIJEDITE I DA NE ZASLUŽUJETE i ne cijenite i ne poštujete sebe dovoljno.

Pogrešno su nas učili, NE nije istina da je samo dovoljno šutiti i kvalitetno raditi – NEĆE VAS NITKO SAM OTKRITI, POHVALITI, morate JASNO I GLASNO REĆI ja sam TA i TA i radim TO i TO… ljudi ne čitaju misli, i gdje da Vas pobogu nađu u ovom moru informacija s kojima smo svakodnevno bombardirani i opterećeni.

E pa IZAĐITE IZ TOG ORMARA VIŠE, super ste. Takve kakve jeste. Ako nećete zbog SEBE, onda UČINITE TO ZBOG DRUGIH, zbog nečije MAJKE, nečije ŽENE, nečije ili još bolje SVOJE KĆERI.

Naš život i naš put nije samo zbog nas, NAŠA PRIČA JE TU I ZBOG DRUGIH, zato se prijavite na sve slične izbore i natjecanja jer na taj način doprinosite nemjerljivom broju ljudi.

Drugi problem kod izbora su naše slatke muke, jer sve kandidatkinje su WOW u svakom pogledu i onda se mi mučimo birati, ali kao što rekoh uživamo u tim slatkim mukama.

Molim Vas budite sigurne da ćete „svojim izlaskom iz ormara“, promijeniti bar jedan život na bolje, da ćete barem jednoj osobi dati snagu da ide dalje. A to je prekrasan osjećaj. Nemojte ga propustiti. Poklonite ga sebi, i poklonite svoju priču drugima.

This one is just for smart successful female entrepreneurs.

Soon the World will celebrate The Global Week of Entrepreneurship (around November 15th). Again, I am thankful and privileged to be a President of the Jury to select the best Croatian Female Entrepreneur organized by the largest female entrepreneur network in SE Europe, Women in Adria.

Such great stories, such great ladies. And there are sooo many of them.
We only face „two problems“ when we chose them.

The first and the biggest one is that we have to somehow get these women to apply. Usually we listen to excuses such – oh, I just have X million EUR revenue, who I am to apply, there must be so many women out there better than me, I don’t want to brag, I don’t want to go public, it’s better to just shut up and work, and not to be seen and recognized, anyone can do this as good as me, I am nothing special etc.

And every year in this period, I think about the same thing.
I respect that someone doesn’t want to be seen in public and wants to keep a low profile. But what if this isn’t your case? What if you are stopping yourself from thinking you are not good enough, that you don’t deserve and are not worthy of such recognition of success. What if your story and your example can change and save someone else’s business life, and it can.

We were misled. True, it might happen that someone just accidentally sees our work and recognize it by themselves, but how often is that. And even then we have to openly tell who are we and what are we doing. No one can read our thoughts, especially in this day and age when we are so bombarded and exhausted with information on daily basis.
Please get out of that closet. You are great. Just the way you are. If not for your business sake, do it for others, for someone else’s mom, someone’s wife, someone’s or better yet for your daughter’s sake.
Our life is not just about us, our story exists for other people’s sake as well.

Go ahead and apply for all and similar competitions and know you contribute so much in that way to all women around.
Our second problem is, it is hard to choose a winner because all these women are so great but we enjoy this very much.
Please be sure, by getting out of your closet of unnecessary modesty and hiding, you will change at least one life for better, and inspire one woman not to give up. That’s worth it. Give this present to yourself and give your business story as a present to the world.
It will give you a feeling no words can ever describe. Enjoy it.
