Your profit is just a result!

As I have mentioned a few times before, I am a sucker for TED Talks. I watch them all the time. Ok, maybe not ALL the time, but you know, a lot. Recently, I watched this very intriguing talk about the Golden Circle. The guest speaker, Simon Sinek was sharing a discovery he made about the way we choose to define what we do.  He said that most organizations define what they do, how they do it and then why they do it.

He talks about how women have the essential tools; smile, cleavage, high heels and humor that enable them to accomplish their goals. Check out SovietLover’s article for more details. Here’s my take.
True, a woman has all the necessary tools at her disposal to get ahead in life. These tools, to strongly point out, entail a lot more than sexuality and seduction. A woman is much more than her body and her power to seduce. Instilling this ideology in women is a step in the wrong direction. Continue reading “A Woman is Much More Than her Power to Seduce”
