Inspiring the 3.9 Billion women in the world.
What happens when a woman feels supported in life, career and/or business? The quick response is that you empower her to keep believing in herself and doing the actions that create an impact in the world as she solidifies the legacy she is working to create. Her imprint in the world’s fabric becomes much more visible to the naked eye and there will be millions of women that she’ll go on to empower simply because you took the time to show her love and support.
If we define empowerment, it is “the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.” There is nothing more powerful than being able to tap into your inner core and know, without a shadow of doubt, that you are capable of bringing your vision to life.
To define “women’s empowerment,” it is the ability to not only acknowledge the challenges that women face, but to stand in the gap as a resource and without judgment, to help her overcome each challenge.
There’s a saying that helps to bring more life to women’s empowerment, it is simply “each one, teach one.” If we infuse this way of living into women’s empowerment, women become much more powerful, confident and ready to make a change in the world. Also, they become empowered to empower other women they encounter; thereby, starting a chain reaction.
Cycle of Support
Now, let’s imagine how impactful your one single action will be, especially if you are a woman empowering another woman. If the one woman you empower begins to impact the women around her to become inspired by her actions in life, then those women will begin their own empowerment journeys, creating a chain reaction of millions of women becoming the most inspired version of themselves. Her journey to impacting millions of women began because you empowered her. Talking about supporting each other is one thing, but understanding how to support is another.
Not all women need the same amount of support nor do they need the same kind of support; however, one thing rings true—we all need support and it’s much more powerful when it comes from another woman.
Strategies for Strength, Growth & Empowerment
The top three strategies that I’ve found to help empower women lies within the “CPC” method:
1. Collaboration over Competition: You must be willing to shift from competing with other women and realize that you are more powerful when you adopt a mindset of collaboration.
2. PDA: You must be open to publicly display support for other women. Support given in private is amazing for your friendship, but showing support to other women in public is great for the world to see. To help the world understand how to support women, we must show them by our own actions towards each other.
3. Consistency Matters: Be consistent in how you show up for each other. We all have days where we’re not feeling our best. We may get busy or we may just need a mental health day, and that’s okay. Just don’t forget that other women are also experiencing those same feelings, and when you are well-rested and energized, check on your friends.
Taking a break from the depressing headlines around the world is often good for the soul.

“Female empowerment has always been and will always be a major part of who I am. As I became a young lady, there were times when I felt that I didn’t have a voice, even though I was championing for others to use theirs. I really wanted to believe that I had people in my life that made me feel comfortable enough to know that I wouldn’t be judged but loved. It took time to fully embrace my past, but once I did, I became unstoppable with empowering every woman that I met… Since that time, I’ve gone on to becoming a global speaker and having spoken in front of groups of up to 25K women, one thing still rings true—there is never too much women’s empowerment!” – Chapman
