BoA rule #72: The word “oversaturation” should only be used in the presence of glitter.

I don’t know about you, but when dealing with the challenges of my career, I keep hearing this one phrase over and over again, and it’s ironic by its very definition. That word is: oversaturated.

Definition:

verb. To cause a substance to unite with the greatest possible amount of another substance.

Used in a sentence:

The beauty industry is oversaturated with influencers and educators, such that the value of the industry has decreased overall.

Are you checking in with your soul when you do business?

As we gear up for our next leadership program, and I am interviewing students and seeing what they consider to be important in order to evolve themselves in the industry, it never ceases to surprise me what most of their answers are. To most it occurs that as long as their skills are up to par, and they just keep learning from the best about how to market effectively, they are in good shape. I will not downplay those 2 things as being important, however they are just details on top of a core root and foundation most are either unaware of or conveniently ignore. It’s not the WHAT you do, and it’s not even the HOW you do it. It’s WHY you are doing it, and because of that it’s who you are committed to being on the journey to living that out.

What is Leadership?

If there is a question I ask myself every single day, sometimes unintentionally, it is ‘what is leadership’? I may not even ask it in those precise words. I may not even ask it in the context of a group of people. But in order to take on the things I do, and the things I want to accomplish, every day this question must be posed.

Leadership is often a term people give prestigious status. It is often looked at as something only people with certain gifts can obtain. But in reality, it’s something we can choose to take on at any moment. In the moment we are presented with a situation, we can choose to handle it from a context of Leadership, or not. This choice is neither right or wrong, good or bad. It simply is a choice that delineates a result with a lasting impact, for a larger vision, and likely benefit more than oneself.
