She’s strong.  She’s powerful.  She’s beautiful.  She’s yours.

Men, the worst thing you can do is not support your lady CEO fully and completely.  Support doesn’t only providing the mental & emotional nudge she may need from time to time, but to also be poised in your position as her mate.

Let me begin by stating that I’m a very traditional  and spiritual lady when it comes to the roles of men and women in relationships–professionally and personally.  My opinions are not placed on display to be argued, but pondered, and garner welcomed discussion.

~ She’s strong.  Yes, she can certainly hold her own, but does she want to? I understand how to run businesses, coach entrepreneurs and executives, and the essence of making money.  Honestly, at this stage in my life, I really don’t even wish to carry the heavy load of being single parent, head of household, seeking to care for my aging parents and running a business.  But as I continue in business and thr next phase of my journey, any gentlemen who has a chance at my heart ever again will understand how to lighten these loads, while seeing the value I add to his life and lifestyle.

~She’s powerful.  I can manage, negotiate and secure deals all day with the best of them; but no matter what high-level positions I have attained or power players that I work with, my ultimate goal is to concentrate my efforts on my family, coaching and philanthropy.  Yet, in the meantime, could I least have the dishes clean & dinner ready once or twice a week when I’m done working? Being afforded the freedom to lay that power down to be a submitted (not controlled) mate to a deserving partner is an ideal vision.  Yes, I said the “s” word.  To each his own…and to thine own self be true.  I’ll leave it there.

~She’s beautiful.  Of course, she is…you’re with her.  Therefore, acknowledging her talents and her aura is necessary.  Daily edification of how her beauty extends into hard she works, how proud of her accomplishments you are and how much you care in general goes a very, very long way with your lady CEO.  She has to fight tough battles throughout the day, and just like you should expect, her home and relationship should be her sanctuary.

~She’s yours.  This was my primary reason for writing today.  I was watching a show and the gentleman escorting his lady in the spotlight to an event and made the comment, “The spotlight is for you.  This your thing.  Go have fun.”  Ugh! I remember those days! In my opinion, the worst thing in the world for a power lady is to not have a self-assured man standing by her side in the times when she doesn’t have to go at things alone.  Unless she’s in an atmosphere of which you can’t participate, your responsibility is to very confidently stand with her (not in the corner) professionally and socially.  It makes us feel safe, secure, loved and appreciated for our well-earned position.  It doesn’t matter how many dignitaries, athletes, entertainers or executives are present; she’s yours.  Act accordingly.

  1. I had to read the blog a couple of times before I had a grasp to what you were trying to convey. It is important that the man isn’t intimidated. I am an ordained minister. I have experienced where a male friend helped me and supported me in ministry. It made a HUGE difference. There was the help spiritually as well as physically. The service went well and I was free to concentrate on what I was preaching and ministering. My friend embraced the service and was confident in his role. The meeting wouldn’t have been what is was without his help!! You can both shine in your assignments. I have heard Joyce Meyer address that when she gets out of the pulpit, she is a wife that is submitted (not controlled) by her husband.

    • Perfectly stated Lady Bradley. And that is certainly my point–a lady in a power position must be in the company of a gentleman who is not intimidated under any circumstances. He must stand firmly in his role as leader and protector. Thank you for chiming in…stay connected.
