Say it With Me: I AM THE BOSS A Day at the I AM THE BOSS Conference
Does it refer to status? To power? To responsibility?
To me, it means the freedom to play by my own rules, instead of following someone else’s.
Not everyone gets the chance to be the boss, but everyone can, if they want to.
This one day event aims to inspire women to create their own path in life, to finally be able to utter the words “I am the boss.”
Over the course of the day attendees watched as Carolyn interviewed a panel of inspiring women who have found success in their own lives, women just like you and I whose passion and determination sent them from middle management, to the top. The panel participates in a Q&A session midway through the day, and the day is finished off with keynote speakers and trainers who share their vision, their journey, and their inspirations with the crowd.
So who were these inspiring women that we all stared in awe at as we held on to their every word?
Well there was Odette Laurie…
As a business coach for entrepreneurs who want to build a multiple six or seven figure business and teacher of mindset marketing and money strategies, she knows what it’s like to fight for her dream.
“I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to struggle. I also know what it’s like to be successful. They need a leader,” she said.
Then there was Mary Engel…
A management coach who works with middle managers to help them improve the quality of their lives, they’re productivity, and get the careers that they dream of.
And there was Wendy Crystal…
A future mom about to pop, still sitting on the panel, and working a booth as the owner and founder of her own cosmetics company.
Looking at her you know that she has drive, but what did she wanted the women to take away from that day? “Determination and believing in themselves and knowing that failure and feeling fear are not things to be feared. They are things to actually motivate you and push you forward to be successful.”
But the real inspiration that day was I AM THE BOSS’s founder Carolyn Dickinson….
Carolyn went from a stressed out new mom at a complete loss of how to get her career back, to an entrepreneur with her own website appropriately titled “Supermom Entrepreneur”, to the creator of her own women’s event, I AM THE BOSS.
Her work has inspired countless women and she tirelessly labors for her love of helping women succeed.
“I always feel like I’m recommending these people. I take pride in that,” she shared. Which is why she hand picks all of her speakers, and it shows. “I have only heard ‘we love it, we’ve gotten something from it.’ That to me is all I want ,” she said. “I’ve had five people personally come up to me and go ‘this is not a typical women’s event,’” she continued.
Besides the obvious benefit of having people love the event, she works so hard to find the right because she said, “We are creating an environment, that to me, is like having a big family over and we’re all kind of chatting and helping and supporting each other.”
In the end, the work of Carolyn, her team, and everyone involved in the I AM THE BOSS conference led to an event that was welcoming, inspiring, and a must-see for women everywhere. It’s certain that women took away so much from the day, but what did Carolyn really wanted them to take away? “Whatever they need.”
