This is Jody DeVere CEO, Inc. & Found­ing Board Mem­ber, Women in Auto­mo­tive speak­ing at the Auto­mo­tive News Lead­ing Women Net­work Con­fer­ence in Nashville 2018

You can -–

Become less fear­ful and you will fear “less”
Turn your fears into excite­ment in every sit­u­a­tion.
Take on things, chal­lenges, and even peo­ple that scare you
Act the way you see your­self — and decide how that will be.

Real­ize that—

As how you are in one sit­u­a­tion- you are in all sit­u­a­tions
Your con­fi­dence leads to com­pe­tence & pow­er
When one woman ris­es, all women rise
When you rise high­er, you influ­ence & lead oth­er women
The myths about women & fem­i­nists in busi­ness are gone.

Watch, Lis­ten, Make Notes and Take Action as appro­pri­ate and time­ly
