How Carolyn Brings Her Authentic, Creative, Expressive Self to TENWOMENSTRONG
I believe women leaders are our future. And I'm here to strengthen and support them on the journey.
As the oldest of three sisters, a graduate of an all-girls high school (St. Louise de Marillac), a graduate of an all-women’s college (Alverno College), and as marketer and leader of high profile, women-targeted products and services, I have enjoyed a lifetime of working alongside, supporting and succeeding with women.
At TENWOMENSTRONG, I use my talents to help women "make shit happen". I'm an activator, a catalyst and I deeply care about women having the opportunity to live a whole-hearted life. Slowing down and getting back in touch with your authentic self is a critical first step. Having tried building a life on inauthenticity, I can tell you it crumbles.
By deeply knowing yourself, you open to more choices, more possibilities. I love to witness and help create the magic as women explore creatively what reignites their spark.
Then you must live -- out loud. Express who you are and share your gifts in the world. I use poetry in my work. Poems that I have taken to heart and use to set tone and build connection. It wasn't a skill they taught me at business school. It was part of my living and leading as my own authentic, creative, expressive self. I bring my "whole-person" to lead life on purpose.
I'm honored to hold space for these amazing women leaders -- and we are ALL leaders. Let's get strong together. Let's lead on purpose. The world needs us.
