There are things that you’re good at that you don’t like doing. There are things that you love to do, but you’re not that great at. And then there’s the sweet spot – the place where the things you love to do and the things you’re really good at intersect. That’s when you’re in your zone.
The Pareto Principle (or the 80/20 Rule) states that 80 percent of results come from 20 percent of efforts. If you’re like me, you know where you excel in making your passion project come alive — the 20 percent — but you keep doing heavy lifting in the other areas, too, thinking they all need the same level of attention from you to succeed. When you stick to your sweet spot, you’ll achieve same result… and just have a lot more time.
Understanding your unique sweet spot allows you to be the most efficient, the most productive, AND the happiest you you can be. This is a rallying call to reinvestigate what you’re spending your time on, and to ask how you can continue to push your projects towards succeess without straying too far outside your zone.
Emerging Women was launched in order to support the integration of business and feminine power to make a positive impact on the world. As a world traveller and Peace Corps volunteer, Chantal Pierrat witnessed first-hand the severe oppression and disempowerment of women that is present in most third-world countries across the globe. And as a sales and marketing executive in medical technology and manufacturing, she experienced the challenges and difficulties modern women face in the first-world business arena. Though the environments were quite different, the effects on women were similar: work more, get rewarded less, and feel insecure as we try to fit into a world created by and for men.
After 11 years as a publishing executive in the area of personal growth, holistic living and spirituality, Chantal combined her passion for women’s leadership, inner transformation, and making the world a better place by launching Emerging Women with the first-annual event in October 2013. Since then, speakers such as Arianna Huffington, Dr. Brené Brown, Dr. Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Tererai Trent, Kristin Neff, PhD, Esther Perel, Kelly McGonigal, PhD, Zainab Salbi, Reshma Saujani, Anne Lamott, and others women from businesses in all industries have come together to discuss the issues facing women entrepreneurs and leaders today.
Facilitated by Emerging Women’s founder, Chantal Pierrat, a Circle Up is a live virtual event that explores a new leadership and feminine power theme each month. After Chantal sets the context for the topic, participants will be placed into small groups for sharing and feedback using the unique Emerging Women Power Circle process. Participants are guided to share deeply and support their circle sisters in stepping fully and courageously into living their truth.
