You are a human magnet and you are constantly attracting to you people whose characters harmonize with your own.” – Napoleon Hill

Empowered, successful, alive women create their lives from their imagination. They attract the exact right people and the exact right experiences at the right time.  As we women move into positions of greater success and influence we learn that within our imagination we hold the power to recreate our lives and manifest far more than we believe– on a day-to-day basis. The art of manifesting success includes one’s ability to clearly define a desired outcome or way of being and to believe and work towards this way of being and living daily.  Setting clear intention(s) is the first step in designing the life that you desire.

(A group of us are coming together to do an intentional setting Master Mind February 27 through March 20th –take a look and join us if this appeals to you) Find out more about my Mini Mastermind here!

Never be afraid to think big and design your new reality to include things that both feel good and provide you with opportunities for growth.  It is time for us women to live and lead lives that are creative and hold influence and success. We often beaver away in our own world, viewing life through a small and limited lens.  Now’s the time to expand our visions and to begin to see the world in a whole new way! Ready?

Join me for our new Mini Master Mind on February 27th.

Recently I’ve received a few emails from ladies in our community asking me questions about The Essential Feminine Company and how to grow their business. I’m going to be sharing the questions and answers with our community on Facebook but I also thought I would share them here with you. Enjoy! ~ Maureen

#1. What kind of foundation does a business need to be sustainable?

Maureen: A clear vision, conviction and diligence. A great team and support system.

#2. How did you know as a new business owner when it was time to invest in yourself?

Maureen: I started to invest in myself on Day 1 before I even worked with my first client. I have kept self investment as a priority. Self investment to me means, optimum self-care, putting yourself first when you need to, downtime and knowing the things that light up your soul and building them into your week.

#3. Why are masterminds so popular?

Maureen: I started my current business out of the spark I received from a mastermind I was in 10 years ago. Since then I have set up and facilitated many. Masterminds are the quickest most cost-effective way to get clear, focused, motivated and to be held accountable with measurable results for your vision.  

Masterminds are in – women do best in collaborative environments. And good Masterminds are for those creating “real deal” businesses. ~ Maureen

charging what your worth - Maureen

Knowing your value in business is an art and an act of confidence.

To charge what your worth you first need to believe it yourself.

Are you charging what your worth in the work that you do? 

Dear friends,

It’s year end and time to get honest and clear about your business growth for the year ahead. I have two opportunities that may be of interest to you:

  1. I am now scheduling complimentary business development sessions for women who are ready and committed to take their business to the next level. These sessions are for women interested in personal, focused guidance and support.
  2. I am also forming a new business Mastermind Group. This group is for women who want to grow their business with the support of a powerful group of women in an intimate virtual setting under my guidance. The Mastermind will take place over a period of six weeks starting  January 23, 2014.

In this group we will:

  • Evaluate your current business objectives- build on them or set new objectives
  • Focus on identifying and clearing blocks to your success
  • Create tangible solutions and business opportunities for the new year ahead
  • Walk away with  a clear, measurable pathway for your business growth for 2014

Contact me personally- by December 12th  at maureen@theessentialfeminine.com if you are interested in either of the above.

Both will fill.

Email: maureen@theessentialfeminine.com.
I look forward to hearing from you!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Warmly, Maureen Simon

I was rereading a blog that one of our most prolific bloggers Judie Fouchaux did a while back and was inspired by it. I guess because I have myself fully re-submerged myself in my own– Awakening the Essential Feminine Claiming your Influential Power. I have just completed designing our new course –The Essential Feminine Facilitator Training-      http://theessentialfeminine.com/events. I am so excited as the course has within it –the very ability to transform the world as we know it today!

The facilitator Training is designed for therapists, counselor’s doctors and women who serve women and for women who want to create circles where women can learn about specific assets that we naturally have — that are very much needed in our world. Join us for a four week certified training beginning on March 15th…. You may never see the world in the same way again!

Judie blog that I mentioned – quite inspiring!:

Often we live our lives busy with the details and overlooking the big picture.  We are making things happen, taking care of business, ourselves, our families.  We overlook some things in favor of what appears the next necessary thing to do.  In this way, important parts of us can fall asleep or can hide rather like dust bunnies in the corners of our nature.  These are the parts of ourselves that Maureen Simon addresses in her new book “Awakening The Essential Feminine: Claiming Your Influential Power.”

Impossible!  Not so.  As bright young women fairly sure of ourselves we move out into a world which is dominated by a masculine mind set.  Sometimes we are actually told, “You don’t think the way I do, with the implication that the way “I do” is the superior way to think.  After all it is “logical”.  Looking around at society it does seem to be the preferred way of thinking.  With that influence around us, it is no wonder that we have devalued our gifts, our natural way of being in the world to take on a costume that all too soon becomes our reality.

However, by going in that direction, we are leaving behind valuable gifts that were meant to be a balance in the world, a balance we need now more than ever.   As Maureen points out, these gifts were given to us in greater proportion as women.  They are as important to our being women as the other attributes that differentiate us from men.  They include our way of thinking.

Women’s thinking is naturally collaborative, inclusive, interconnected, intuitive, empathetic, and flexible.  Her brain makes it so.  When Professor Higgins asks, “Why can’t women think like a man?” he overlooks a basic fact.  They weren’t meant to think like men.  We were meant to think like women and bring balance and harmony in the world.

Now with the world in such chaos it is time to awaken our dormant attributes.   By awakening The Essential Feminine within we can begin Claiming Our Influential Power.

Our world seems overwhelmed by chaos.  The problems we face are monumental and interconnected to the rest of the world and we don’t seem to be able to hide our heads under the blankets any longer and have them all go away.  In fact, the only solutions seem to be ones in which we take collaborative action; actions requiring us to put aside our inner fears, our negative approach and to move into unfamiliar waters.

Collaborative action is based in putting aside personal interests and needs for the benefit of a larger goal.  It takes inclusiveness, seeing oneself as part of a larger whole, walking in someone else’s shoes.  These qualities are especially strong in women.  By their very nature they are peace makers, interested in building strong relationships, looking for common bonds and shared interests.  These are just some of the feminine attributes that women possess which we need to rely on to overcome the chaos.

Many women are taking a more powerful stance today.  If you haven’t viewed “Women, War and Peace” yet, be sure to see this amazing documentary showing what women in war torn areas of our world have been doing to change not only their lives but all our lives.  These women are using their attributes in a positive way.  Now is the time for us to realize that these natural attributes, too long overlooked and/or negated, are crucial for positive change today and in the future.  We need to encourage ourselves and our young women to value our feminine perspective.  It is only through the addition of the feminine perspective that we will achieve balance and peace in our world.

In a recent blog posted by Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF in response to the Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), she wrote that:

“I feel strongly that the global community is beginning to respond.

Why? Three reasons: a shared sense of urgency, a shared diagnosis of the problems,

and a shared sense that the steps needed in the period ahead are now coming into


These three reasons promote change.  If we in ourselves have a sense of urgency concerning a problem, clearly understand what the problem is and the steps needed for change – change can happen.

In our world today, the economic crisis is only one of the chaotic situations that we face.  All around us we are beset by problems in international relations, education, health care, and unemployment – a seemingly overwhelming array.  It’s enough to make you want to get in bed, pull the covers over your head and hide.  That won’t get us through this.

However, all around us there is something else stirring; a force, a movement that like young seedlings making their way into the light is happening.  Women are waking up to their possibilities.

There is definitely an urgency to make change now.  The diagnosis appears to be a great imbalance in the world from years of living from a masculine perspective.  (Aggression, hierarchy in business, etc.)   The steps needed to create that change rely on developing a greater feminine perspective in our lives.  The steps for this to happen, for women to take the lead and to begin to influence now, include discovering who they truly are beneath all the socialization, claiming those attributes and bringing them forth into our world.

Do you feel the urgency?  Share the diagnosis? Are you willing to take the steps, claim your birthright and make a difference?

Last June the “Democracy That Delivers For Women” conference was held in Washington, D.C. In reading through some of the conference resources I came across several points well worth noting.

1. Social change requires vision and leadership..

Women who are deeply connected with their natural feminine gifts; their intuition, their nurturing, their communication skills, are women who have these qualities of vision and leadership so necessary now. Developing these gifts is a priority today

2. Women are at the core of strengthening democratic processes and market institutions.

Because of women’s innate attributes of cooperation, empathy, building connections rather than hierarchies, they are especially suited to bring about the social change that will create a new and more balanced world.

To often women have undervalued their natural gifts, accepting them as normal. It is time now to cultivate these attributes and rely on them. They are what is needed in the world.  As women we must take responsibility for creating our own democracy.  We can be helped but without our own belief in ourselves and our natural attributes it will not happen.  Democracy will be created on from the inside out.  It will be based on our understanding our gifts and using them to build the best in ourselves, our communities and then in our world.
