Women are strong – stronger than men – in fact, statistically female babies are stronger than males and they out live us.
Historically, the plight of woman is closely aligned to the plight of Blacks; equal rights, voting rights, women’s right (civil rights) and pay equality.
No major civil rights or civil liberties movement has ever been successful without women.
Women are wonderful. Women are fighters. Women are survivors. Women are determined and they are hard workers.
I know because I was raised by women, I saw it first-hand. Even now I am surrounded by little women (my nieces and their moms, my sisters) and they run the world.
Women have played a huge roll in my life – women of all races, ages and religious beliefs. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for a woman (and not only my mom). Let me explain.
It was a woman that inspired and pushed me to be a better writer in undergrad – thank you Mrs. Papa.
It was a woman that showed me how to lead a group of employees – thank you Ms. Mable
It was a woman that encouraged me to move to Ohio so I could have a better life – thank you Chiem.
It was women who taught me how to be unselfish – thank you and you know who you are.
It was a woman that gave me my first big time title promotion – thank you Carol.
It was a woman who helped me with Statistics I and II, and Economics and if it wasn’t for her, I would have never graduated from Ohio State – thank you Tamara.
It was women that supported me when I quit that dead end job, with no backup plan and tried this social media thing. – thank you Tiffany, Rayanne and Jessica.
It was women that raised me to be the man I am today (all the good stuff like determination, relentlessness, compassion, and kindness) – thank you Carrie, Eloise, and Christine.
Throughout history – Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Coretta Scott King, Betty Shabazz.
Even today, most of my resume clients are women, so I see first-hand that woman all over the country are still working hard trying to better themselves. And some of my best business partners, who look out for me, are women.
On the Performance I Create website we have 5 of the most creative, brilliant and talented women in world (not just social media) and I am proud of that.
With all of these great examples of women who have helped me, and as much as I like to think that I know them – I don’t. They are the more intelligent, tolerant and capable than any of us men realize. We think we know, we have no idea – I’m still learning from women. And going forward I will strive to be more understanding of each women and stop trying to figure them out but try harder to accommodate them, as they have me.
