WINGS First Anniversary Episode
Melinda Wittstock launched Wings Of…Inspired Business a year ago today to celebrate the entrepreneurial journeys of women “succeeding in silence”. One year in, Wings has grown into a movement as Melinda works to catalyze an ecosystem where women in business mentor each other, buy from each other and invest in each other. Today Melinda talks about what it takes to succeed, how to get out of fear and scarcity, and why we all need a “business family” of mentors and coaches to succeed.
So often when we reach a milestone or realize a dream, we can so easily forget to take a moment to truly honor and celebrate that achievement. Missing the opportunity to enjoy your success is like saying to the Universe, “no, it's OK, I don't really value success.”Today is a day for me as host of Wings Of…Inspired Business to truly enjoy and celebrate all that has manifested from what began a year ago as my “side hustle” – and has now become a fast-growing business and movement.
A year ago I found my voice, and truly, fully, authentically, dared to step into the light. And every day since I’ve been asking other woman in business to do the same:
- To step into the light.
- To dare to dream.
- To play bigger.
What got me here was a calling bigger than myself.
Too many women entrepreneurs are “succeeding in silence” – and I wanted to celebrate that success, and help women entrepreneurs.
I also saw female founders succeeding often “despite” rather than “because” of support from others, including other women. So I wanted to change the despite to a because and I also knew I wanted to BE a “because”… that is “walk my talk” to lift women to success.
Today I share more on the Wings mission and how women can truly “be” the change they want to see by lifting as we climb.
Melinda ends the podcast with this powerful message:
Anyone can be a workhorse – clock in, clock out, get the job done, get it done well, with discipline and diligence, all with the belief that your hard work will be rewarded.
Now the racehorse on the other hand, lives for the big moment.
There is meticulous self-care, a specific roadmap to mastery, and a profound intention of success. There is as much or more rest and pampering, because no racehorse can afford to “burn out”. So hopefully you have your spa time booked.
And then there is Pegasus.
A magical horse with wings, taking flight in flow and grace.
Like her Unicorn sister, she is majestic, muscular, and graceful – and she has a BIG vision and purpose matched with her passion and true talents.
A Pegasus sets powerful intentions for what she wants – and imagines them done.
Rather than a task list of “to do's”, the Pegasus has a list of profound “thank-you’s”.
She is grateful before she has even achieved the success goals she visualizes for herself. Her “list” is one of visualizations of specific, focused intentions achieved – all with profound gratitude. She sets her intentions free in the Universe with the ease of soaring like a bird.
My mission with Wings is to see you achieve the extraordinary and unbridle the Pegasus within.
