#GirlBoss: redefining what a boss looks like

Too many of us grew up only seeing one kind of boss or leader in the media. The lack of representation for other groups reinforced harmful stereotypes and acted as a self-fulfilling prophesy, but would our opinion of what a leader looks like be different if the media did a better job at representing the true diversity of leadership in America?

Women and other under-represented groups are already leading many great companies, organizations, & academic institutions; others are authoring best-sellers, building engaged audiences, leading movements and more.

We encourage you to check out the female leaders we’ve highlighted below, follow them on social media if you find their work or story interesting and most importantly do your part to #fightstereotypes

Sometimes you gotta look back and smile at your story. Some of us have had one of the best years of our lives. Some of us had challenging ones, others had painful ones. Whatever it was, I hope you are no longer there, that you learned from it and healed from it. And it’s ok if you have changed, remember that every next level of your life will require a new you! #smile #growth #levelup #youareworthy #youarecapable #youaremagical #imready #thesassyrealtor #houstonrealestate #realtorlife #houstonrealtor #agentedebienesraices #inmobiliarias #investor #entrepreneur #womanentrepreneur #houstonhomes #singlefamilyhome #luxuryhomes #highriseliving #houstonhighrises #condosforsale #townhomesforsale #commercialrealestate

You may have already heard the news in my Instagram stories or on my FB page…the new website is currently live! 🎬 I’ve been getting some awesome feedback and it means so much to hear from family and friends that my new site looks and sounds just like me!!! 😎 It was a labor of love…and stress. I was hella nervous to let it out there into the universe, but it was time for a more genuine representation of my business and myself on the web. I took the scary step of putting my story out there into the world, which I don’t generally like to do on the internet. But some of my more “vocal” (read that as supportive) friends and clients convinced me to, and that it would matter to others because it mattered to them…which is an emotional concept in and of itself. I also knew I wanted to have a space for visitors to learn what a DNI Couple is like. Personality meshing is a major ingredient to the kind of experience that produces well loved photos. All that in addition to more info about my services and process, and I think the user experience will be more informed and easier to navigate. Starting next week, I’ll be doing a few giveaways throughout October to celebrate, but in the meantime, check it out via a desktop for the FULL effect! 🍾🥂 I’d love to know what element or page is your favorite! . . . 📷 by @abbygracephoto 🖥 by @theautumnrabbit #websitelaunch #rebrand #galvestonweddingphotographer #houstonweddingphotographer #detroitweddingphotographer #porthuronweddingphotographer #orlandoweddingphotographer #sarasotaweddingphotographer #disneyweddingphotographer #galvestonweddings #galvestontx #houstonweddings #travelwedding #elopementphotographer #disbride #disneywedding #disneybridetobe #adventuretogether #outwithlocals #adventurouswedding #texasbride #adventurewedding #adventurebrides #adventurecouple #wildelopements #floridabride #michiganbride #adventurouslovestories #couplestravel

Today, I am celebrating 23 years in the mortgage industry. From day 1, it has been the most incredible journey of growth. It has provided me the opportunity to serve others and change lives, not the least of which is my own. I started as a single mom, in an industry I was told I was not qualified to be in. But, I had 5 people that believed in me…my boss, my mom, my dad, myself and my 5 year old daughter. I knew I had to succeed because she was watching every move I made. I was her example of what a woman should be and what a woman should do. And so, I persisted. There was no option to fail. Since that time, I, along with my amazing team, have helped 1000s of families and individuals achieve the dream of homeownership. It has been my highest honor to serve others and celebrate the joy that comes with moving into their new home or refinancing their home, with purpose. My team has grown and we now help hundreds of families each year, together. We serve with love and gratitude. I am grateful for the opportunity to do what I do. And I am grateful someone took a chance on a young 20 something single mom all those years ago. • • • • #realestate #mortgage #thewoodlands #houston #leadership #houstonrealestate #servantleadership #newhome #newhouse #firsttimehomebuyer #realtor #houstonrealtor #inspire # singlemom #bossbabe #momboss #loanofficer #inspiration #home #movementmortgage #excellence #movementhouston #jointhemovement #mompreneur #entrepreneur #mompreneurlife
