The Cornerstones of Effective Women Mentorship

Over the years, women have broken workplace barriers by becoming business leaders and successful entrepreneurs in formerly male-dominated industries. In fact, CNBC reveals that the 2019 Fortune 500 list recorded the highest number of female CEOs to be featured in history. Despite the significant strides, there’s still more work to be done for women in the workplace. 

Women leaders can make their presence even more impactful by taking on the role of mentors. Mentorship is integral for any company, as mentors help employees boost their career prospects. So, how can women shape tomorrow’s leaders now that they’re presented with this opportunity? Below, we dive into the cornerstones of effective female mentorship.

Empowering Them

In the past, people have been taught that working in business is a dog-eat-dog world. Fortunately, many female-led companies are shifting towards a culture that focuses on empowering their...

#Thrive Thursday Meet Jessica Bargenquast, CEO Lady Changemakers

thrive thursday Apr 09, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I struggled to maintain meaningful relationships for most of my life. There were very few people that knew everything about me. I liked to keep people at a distance because it made me feel safer. I wanted to appear to everyone on the outside that I was a happy-go-lucky person all the time. 

It wasn’t until I got a life coach that I started to learn that my way of living was not serving me in any way. A switch finally turned on and I realized I was craving real connections with women. I started to build on my relationships, and this is really where my life started to change.

I found that I was always craving ways to support and show up for women around me. A feeling of knowing I was meant to support women in a major way but not being sure exactly how.

It took a few failed blog and business attempts for me to finally come to the idea for Lady ChangeMakers. Previously I had a blog for...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Renee Reisch, Author of Finding Your Voice

thrive thursday Apr 01, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

My journey of losing my voice to an illness in 2013 made me a prisoner in my own body and my own home.  Doctors didn’t know if I would ever speak again. I was unable to be with the public for 3 ½ months. I was sent to a vocal coach and had to do a lot of work. It took close to a year to fully regain the use of my voice.  Four years later, after being released from Corporate America, I kept thinking about the illness, but this time it was in a different way. I knew if God brought me to something and through something so painful there had to be a reason.  It was to be the vessel, the voice for other women who have “lost their voice”. I realized I had not only lost mine physically but metaphorically in my own life. I didn’t speak up or stand up for myself and was more concerned with pleasing others than pleasing myself.  I was inspired by a family...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Billie Jo Flythe

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today? 


Weight loss surgery 2013- lost 135 lbs –Major life event for me. I began a transformation mentally as well as physically. I promised myself I would not hold back anymore, I would try new things and most importantly, show my daughter that women can do anything they put their mind to. I learned through this that having confidence isn’t bragging, or showing off, or asking for attention, it is being true to yourself. 


What message do you promote?  

Summer 2019 we had a  “girls trip” which included my 15-year-old daughter, Mallory, and her friend Riley. I challenged them to give 5 complete strangers a compliment. Not the normal “I like your shirt” compliment, but something that would really brighten someone’s day. Neither had ever done anything like this so the challenge was set. Once the first compliment left their...

LEADERSHIP: A Closer Look at the Brands Paving the Way for Female Empowerment

leadership Mar 12, 2020

In 2020, a brand must do more than simply sell a product. Each company needs to go above and beyond to retain customers and establish its place as a market leader — involvement with wider political matters is a big part of this effort. When brand ethics shine through, customers will
appreciate the company’s commitment when it comes to championing inclusivity and empowerment. When brands wave the flag of empowerment, consumers are bound to listen. Some brands go above and beyond to ensure that both their staff and their customers feel supported. Whether that’s through the initiatives that they support, employee benefits to ease the strain on working mothers, or a range of makeup that is inclusive of all, every step towards inclusivity and empowerment represents a huge milestone. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the businesses that are championing empowerment in 2020.
