When Women Feel Better, Everything Will Get Better

Do you want to be more successful and make more money? I know I do! But I also worry about doing good. I don’t want to get rich just for the sake of having money. I want to have money so I can help others.

I want to make my first 100 million dollars so I can start a foundation like Oprah or Sara Blakely. I already have it all mapped out in my head. The HER Foundation will give back to women to support their health and wellness. We’ll provide funding so we can get the clinical trials we women should have had all along. We will have health and greatness at any age and any stage of life!

Of course, so far that is just a pipe dream. I haven’t made my first 100 million or started the foundation. And I still worry about the doing well and doing good theory. I always thought I should do good – by which I mean helping others improve their health and wellness – and the doing well – as in making money – would just automatically happen.

Boy was I wrong! Just like when I thought if I built a website every woman would find it and use it and improve her health. I found out the hard way that it just doesn’t work that way. And that statement explains why my second book is going to be titled “Build It and They Won’t Come.”

I can honestly say that being in business and succeeding in business is hard work! I’ve lost track of how many people have told me I should just go ask Oprah to help me make EmpowHER the success it should be. That sounds nice, but I know I can’t count on Oprah or anyone else to do the work for me.

I think it all circles back to the status of women as business leaders around the world. Despite all the steps we’ve taken, women are still underpaid and under-represented in boardrooms and corner offices across the globe. We have to fix that.

But even more important to me is fixing the fact that 50 percent of our population doesn’t feel well. I’m talking about all the women of all ages who are running so many small businesses and taking care of families including aging parents, husbands and kids even though they don’t feel as well as they should.

Then, I guess it all comes down to a perfume. Because perfume helps women to get and feel better according to this study

Great article, Michelle; thank you! It is amazing how much we somehow manage to take on and keep running smoothly, while we put our pain/illness aside to support our family and loved ones. The stress alone can be debilitating, keeping up with everyone's schedules, work, finances, home, meals, shopping, etc. That on top of the physical challenges of aging, lack of sleep, and hormonal shifts, not to mention more acute and treatment-defined illnesses.
