What I love About This Topic
I love women! Men are awesome too…and my husband is my favorite person in all the land. But I do have a soft place in my heart for women. I think it’s because I truly believe that when women stick together and work towards a higher purpose, we can accomplish great things together.
I feel sad that this is not always the case. I think that there are two groups of women; women who gossip and tear other women down in an attempt to feel better about themselves or get ahead, and women who support, uplift and encourage one another. I know it is hard sometimes to choose the later. We are all human and with that bring all our baggage, mistakes, and miscommunication to the table. On top of that, I think we are often stuck in the comparison trap and constantly trying to see where we fit on the “scale of success” by measuring aspects of our life up against other women. That is particularly dangerous because of the “Fairy Tale Myth” (I have a gift for you below about this that you are going to love) that is fueled by images of a perfect life that doesn’t exist…but that my friends is a topic for another day.
My point is, we need to stop falling prey to the comparison trap and need to start seeing other women as friends and supporters instead of competitors. I know they won’t all be but isn’t it worth the risk to find the ones who are awesome!
In this episode, I talk about why I believe that women need to stick together and how doing so in a way that supports and encourages ourselves and the women around us will help make this world a better place. And don’t we all want this world to be even better?

Who is Connie Benjamin?
Connie Benjamin is an international speaker and author of the upcoming book Women With Fire…6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit, and Passion. She is also the host of My Fire Within Radio. After sharing her message from the stage with thousands of people, she realized women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to make a difference in the world through their work without losing their family, or their sanity needed a book to guide them in how to do it.
Connie discovered it was possible to have it all, at the right time, and in the right order, after she learned about Higher Laws principles. Now, she dedicates her time to sharing her knowledge with female self-starters to help them improve their lives. These principles helped Connie restore her marriage from feeling disconnected to being better than the day she and her husband Andy were married! These principles also helped her replace her day job income, as she found renewed love in being a stay-at-home mom with her three daughters, and recovered her health.
Connie knows how essential it is to give back, so she is donating all the profits from the first edition of her book Women With Fire to charity to help families in developing countries access clean
