My most recent challenge as a woman was when I was pregnant with my son. Running your own. Business is very rewarding but can also be Customer Service tough. And I distinctly remember being on a call with a new potential client. We were finalizing the proposal, and my pregnancy came up in conversation as I had a check up and couldn’t make the suggested date for the next call.
Were there any challenges you’ve faced
There are definitely challenges I faced as a woman throughout my career. Two major milestones getting married and having children caused me to pivot my career in unexpected ways that I don’t think would have affected a man. I worked in a retail store for a large tech company when I got married. And I had expressed interest in an open position. When I returned from my wedding and honeymoon. Discovered that not one but two men were hired into the Russia Phone Number Data position management knew I wanted. Fought hard to get onto that team. Was the only woman and while my coworkers were great. I faced a lot of sexist comments from customers. I ultimately left that job for a better opportunity.
How did you overcome them
The prospect a man commented about morning. Sickness and needing to be available or in the right headspace for the project. I have yet to hear back from the prospect. From then on, I didn’t mention my pregnancy. Which is easier to do in a virtual world. I found the BUY Lead different reactions I received when the topic came up very eye opening. This was a reflection point for me on the types of people and clients we work with at Let’s Talk Strategy. If I felt I couldn’t share this piece of information.
