Don't believe the hype. Startups aren't the exclusive domain of the gifted. They are full of ordinary people who know that the difference between ultimate success and abject failure is hard work, a hunger for opportunity, and an appetite for problem solving that keeps them pushing it day in and day out.
@girledworld - Building the leaders of tomorrow today.

A week awaits. Set your mission and vision, then get to work. #juststart #girledworld #startup

Strong women, mothers, daughters, and sisters are marching today united by strength and solidarity to slam bigotry, stand up for parity, equality and diversity and show the world progress has a female face.

Progress isn't made on the sidelines. Progress is made when ideas are actioned and injustice fought and together they gather power in collective momentum. ✖️✖️ #womensmarchonwashington #womensmarch #obama #womensmarchdc #womensmarch2017 #dumptrump #leanin #equality #parity #progress #standup #speakup

Just in case you hadn't worked it out yet, no-one has it together when they start.
Ideas are easy.
It's the starting that's hard.
So start.
Act now. #juststart (You can work it out along the way).

Learn to love and leverage fear. (It's the part of your comfort zone you need to push through to get anywhere remarkable).
#juststart #fearbegone #girledworld #entrepreneurship #leadership #STEM #startup

There are glass ceilings out there. Unseen, insidious, unbreachable barriers and biases in our politics, our economics, our everydayisms.
But there's also one big ceiling that can repeatedly stop you from daring to stretch further, aim higher, rise up, learn more, change tack, change jobs, lead not follow, speak not silence, and which prevents you from pushing way, way past your comfort zone.

You.

So stop being your own glass ceiling.
Smash your own status quo.
See it for what it is.
And just start. @girledworld #startup #stepup #leanin

Girls can't be what they can't see.
So we teach girls to find their voice, be their own boss and run their own show.

Cos we know there's so much more girls can do and be if they are given the right access to visible role models, leadership skill sets, and the right educational toolkits to enable them to step up, set goals, lead and succeed.

@girledworld - empowering girls aged 15-18 to lead, found and build businesses, because Australia's future depends on them.
TAG A FEMALE ROLE MODEL YOU THINK NEEDS A LIGHT SHONE ON THEM ✨

• Step 1. Write down the goal
• Step 2. Make a plan of how you will achieve it
• Step 3. Intact the plan • Step 4. Repeat as required

If the past years have taught us one true thing it's to feign brave, even in the face of uncertainty.

Entrepreneurship is hard. There are no road maps, no rules, many ups, as many downs, big wins, crushing losses, wild guesses, giant leaps and plenty of days when you wonder why the F you started.
But having met and learnt from Silicon Valley front runners and many of Australia's leading startup game-changers last year @unimelb @wadeinstitute in Australia's first Master of Entrepreneurship, we started to see much of what holds us back from startup success is ourselves.
No startup comes easy. It's hard, hard work. And you've got to really want to do it (because no one else is going to push you to get up every day and keep working on it). What we @girledworld have also seen is the startup ecosystem here is full of people who have drive and dynamism but who also have significant imposter syndrome and self-doubt, but the difference between those who can and those who can't is their willingness to be brave, back themselves, challenge status quo, use their networks, weather startup stumbles, keep getting up, keep pushing and to keep pivoting and validating and pivoting again til they eventually land on a market. Then they swim like mad.

It's the mindset that makes an entrepreneur.
Make yours a brave one this year.

Whatever you want it to be! 🙌🏻Following on from this morning, you have the power to write the rules of your own life. If things aren’t working right now, change tact. YOU and you alone, have the power to make your life what you want it to be. We only get one, so what are you waiting for? Ready, set...

If you keep playing by the same rules, you'll never change the state of play. Stop. Think. Change tactics. Being a game-changer, whatever that is, wherever you are, is about changing the game. Change starts where change starts. #juststart

Ideas are the easy part. It's the starting, the trying, the failing, the wailing (temporary), then the picking yourself up to give it another crack that makes the small steps to big change happen. #juststart
#startup #entrepreneur #girledworld #femalefounders @wadeinstitute @unimelb @girledworld #diversity

In these strange and strained political times, speaking up, showing up and taking a stand is imperative to ignite democratic discourse and continue the call for diversity.

The Women's March on #Washington for Women's Rights will be the largest demonstration linked to the inauguration of #President-elect #DonaldTrump, with as many as 200,000 people from across the US expected in Washington on Jan. 21.
Sister marches have spread across the world with 370+ (& growing) marches organised globally backed by political organizers and advocacy groups — including Planned Parenthood, who has signed on as an official event partner.

A list of all the sister marches throughout the world can be found on the Women's March on Washington's official website, along with an estimated count of those who are expected to attend (almost 700,000 participants anticipated). @Girledworld #Girledworld #diversity #speakup #standup #startup

There's a place for dreaming, making plans and setting sights. But don't spend too long treading water and getting caught in 'What ifs?' It's the doing that matters most. So get out there and start.

Don't let analysis paralysis sap you of your start. No one knows all the answers when they begin. The first step is starting. You can work the rest out later.

We're all for authenticity. Being real, staying true and carving out your unique career path and purpose will make it so much easier to get up each day with passion fuelling you.

Be true to who you are. #juststart

Still crushing. What a couple. (Clearly, we lifted the pic, but these two exemplify, personify, dignify - wisdom, integrity, commitment, leadership and basic human decency - in spades.) #moreobamasplease

If not you then who?
Because the fact is - if you've got an idea, an inkling, a lightbulb, a fresh start, another way, a left turn, a risk, a leap, a what if?, a vision, a step away from right now that is true to who you are, then what's stopping you? You don't need permission from anyone but yourself.

Ask yourself - who am I but right now? What matters? What is the first step I need to take to be that change?

Be true to who you are. #juststart

So the new year has well and truly kicked in and, as you do, so many of us have recently shaken status quo, made firm, passionate resolutions and vowed to make the changes we know we need to in our life and work.
But how many of you have since returned to work, hunkered down, defaulted to always was, and parked your dreams til next new year's eve?

Where does all your dreaming go in the course of another ordinary day in another ordinary year?

WHAT IF THIS WAS THE YEAR YOU CHOSE A NEW PATHWAY? What if 2017 was the year you STARTED?

At @girledworld we empower girls with the skillsets and mindsets to choose an educational and career pathway that is right for them, not what is expected of them.
We make it all about them.

Make this the year of you.

We know how hard it is to start.
We also know that sometimes finding that starting courage is all about shaking off imposter syndrome, saying yes to the question you're trying to answer, harnessing your creativity and just going for it.
Starting is the hardest part. You don't need to know where it ends. Turn to face the opportunity and begin.
#startup #stepup #entrepreneurship #backyourself #startsomewhere #startsomething #girledworld

Yup. It can be an inspiring, energising, go-getting, goal-setting, #newyear kinda vibe, but this can be at odds with the beckoning, lazy, hazy Summer days .... Find your balance somewhere in the middle of all and nothing. (If you find work you're passionate about, absolutely nothing will stop you from wanting to do it all anyway.) #worklife #lifework #purpose #girledworld #startup #femalefounders #balance

The world said farewell to two extraordinary leaders today. True leaders leave wonder in their wake and make their mark on many so those they touch can take up where they left off. #POTUS #FLOTUS
Tag a female leader who has inspired you to do and be better. ✖️✖️ Our pick: #michelleobama #FLOTUS

Because this momentous day can't pass without acknowledging the incredible, dignified, integrity-fuelled, graceful, diplomatic, intelligent, exemplary role model, leader and human #Obama was.

His words, deeds, actions, acceptance, humility, and gentle quest for racial and gender equality will hopefully remain as a bastion for leaders, male and female, the world over. #notmanyifany
#farewellObama #POTUS #respect #barackobama #obama

Are you a starter? A stopper? A dreamer? A doer? A leader? A lagger? Brilliant? Bumbling?
What if it didn't matter? What if the secret sauce to success is just to KEEP GOING? To keep pushing. And what if the difference between dreaming and doing was to simply START WITHOUT STOPPING? Not doubting. Just doing.
From one famous doer to the women and girls out there who need a push right now: "When I thought I couldn't go on I forced myself to keep going. My success is based on persistence, not luck." - Estée Lauder
#founder #entrepreneur #keepgoing #girledworld #startup ✖️✖️

We're all for holidays, think time and taking stock, but slow Summer days are also good for hatching plans, rethinking old ways, and doing a 360 on your life, work and play to make sure you're standing where you want to be. 🔃
Change takes commitment, awareness and courage enough to sit with uncertainty. And yes it's easy to watch the days disappear as you simply fall hard on old habits.

But what if you make a pact to do it NOW not NEVER, what if you write it down, say it loud, make it real, and start making shifts, setting goals and changing habits. 2017 is already ticking. So, what are you waiting for? .
