A BRAND NEW interview with Holly Dowling, the author of Hollyisms. Let Your Light Shine! 50 Inspirations in 140 Characters or Less, on The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi. This is the “Hollyism” that really spoke to me: “Life is not about work; rather your work should bring you life and brighten your life.”
Most organizations are seeking solutions on how to attract, retain and advance women. Many men — I believe up to 30 percent want to help. The challenge is knowing what to do on a daily basis to demonstrate advocacy.
When do you get your greatest inspiration? My greatest ideas come to me in the most valuable time that I have for myself: my down time. In this quiet time, I am truly able to reflect and listen to my inner voice.
I met Holly Dowling recently when we connected through Sonia Bueno de la Torre. It was clear from the get-go that Holly and I had a lot in common. Holly focuses on strength-based leadership and change management, now specializing in corporate women’s empowerment. She has consulted for major companies such as Facebook, IBM, Gap, Wells Fargo, and now is working with the United Nations and their Girl Up initiative.
I want to kickoff this year’s #AprilAppreciations by appreciating all the incredible men in my life that have been there to encourage me, inspire me, & love me unconditionally, in every way, shape, or form! As many of you know, this last month I revealed a very dark time in my past, and I want to celebrate the men who have helped me believe in the goodness of men again.
Are you ready to own your confidence, step into your power, & create the life you truly desire? I recently had the privilege of being featured as one of the 60+ experts joining Sonia Bueno de la Torre’s Self-Love Revolution!
As an adult, my secret little safe space has always been a bedroom closet. Nobody could get to me, find me, hear me or see me when I disappeared behind the door to my closet.
No matter what culture they live in around the world, women want to know, most of all, that they are not alone. Holly’s mission is to share that message and why and how they can be true to themselves and live their passion. Universally, women look outside of themselves for permission to be who they are and go after their dreams. Holly sees many women break down in tears when they realize that they have been allowing the lack of permission to hold them back. They are liberated by the understanding and the epiphany that comes with knowing they have the power to choose. Holly urges women to see every day as the gift it is. When Holly considers her day, she asks, will this client give me joy?
Holly Dowling had the absolute pleasure of being invited to lead the December webinar for the SAP Women’s Growth Webinar Series. This well-received webinar was held on both December 7th & 8th, and brought women together from all over the world, both internal & external to SAP.
Congratulations to Global Keynote Speaker & Inspirational Thought Leader Holly Dowling, who has been named the winner of two 2016 Silver Stevie® Awards for Women in Business in both The Female Entrepreneur of the Year & Women Helping Women categories!
