I’ve gotta be honest, I don’t snoop around, in fact, I don’t usually stop and listen to people’s conversations… sometimes.
But, Friday afternoon, while at work, I decided to explore my new co-working digs and fell upon a discussion between a woman and two male colleagues about their business.
Me being the naturally curious person that I am, I perched my ear to listen to more.
I heard the lady express how project and time management were what would help their company grow.
Anyone with serious business acumen knows that the advice she was giving was SPOT on. Shoot, I wanted to hire her on the spot while listening to her argument.
It was clear to me that her male cohorts had other ideas about “how cute” her feedback was by making jokes. It was apparent that their tone was more condescending then supportive.
The surprising thing was that the minute she walked away to go to the restroom, all of a sudden, the fun jokes were over. They made a plan based on her recommendations and agreed on some changes without her.
As she walked back to join the two men, the jokes started again and never once did they validate her argument.
Now, I don’t know what happened after, but that interaction is what drove me to write this blog.
Don’t underestimate the intelligence of a woman. Before you know it, she could replace your position and be your number one competitor.
Right now, women in business are doing more than ever and they are not settling! They are continuously doing more to develop their professional skills, and now, with women empowerment being at an all-time high, women everywhere are speaking up for what they deserve.

If you haven’t seen Charis N. Jones on your Facebook representing her business Sassy Jones, where have you been? She’s taking the term accessories to a whole new level. Her energy and confidence expressed within her videos are different because it’s not fake, it’s relatable. While watching her, it doesn’t seem like she is trying to sell you but instead chatting with you like your one of her girls. Words cannot give her accessory line any justice. You have to check it out. But I should warn you; you will fall in-love.
