In a world where women still have to fight for equality, there has been the need for someone to rise up and advocate for a lasting change. Such a person is Christine Mendoza, who instead of taking a radical stand on the matter, is simply changing the mindset of women towards business and financial freedom. Christine Mendoza might not be a household name, but soon you will begin hearing from her, especially due to the revolutionary brand she is creating – Face & Bawdy. Here is how this glamour model turned serial entrepreneur is gradually changing the game for women in the tough and often male-dominated business world, in her own nonconventional way.
Women in Business: Changing the Status Quo
Being in the entertainment industry,, Christine knows just how far desperation can be a driving force behind anyone’s push towards success. The fact that she made it up to the corporate ranks without ever having to compromise her integrity not only made her strong but also proved to her that women can make it in business independently, regardless of past.. Christine Mendoza wants women to know that it is not always about their physical look. She wants to have women and girls understand that it is never about what they are wearing. Rather, it is about attitude. People naturally tend to gravitate towards positivity, while shy away from negativity. “If you can master your attitude, you can learn to master your perception of life, especially in business,” Christine says.
To change the status quo, Christine wants to change the mindset of women in business by telling them not to be dependent on anyone other than themselves. She says, “Women need to learn to invest in themselves. Whether it is taking up courses, learn from mentors, take on apprenticeships down to educating yourself [ since knowledge is easily accessible via the internet]. Women have to do everything in their power to achieve their goals, all while understanding it is also important to balance and maintain a healthy mind, body, and soul.” While this may be a hard pill to swallow for a lot of women, it is totally worth it. Christine agrees that it is a lot of hard work on yourself at first, but it indeed pays off in the end.
Balancing Your Act
There is one thing Christine says about women that might apply to the majority across the board. If you look at women in business, most are imbalanced. They are successful in business but fail in personal relations, destructive lifestyle, and vice versa. According to Christine Mendoza, women should balance their lives and pour the same amount of love and passion into all aspects of their lives and not just focus on one particular thing. Immigrant women, in particular, face many challenges in life and it is important that they all can come together to develop the skills and confidence they need to be able to unleash their full potential. Christine believes that women can accomplish full potential by overcoming their tough challenges with resilience, grit, and grace.
Consistency, Not Competition
Consistency is key, and this applies to all aspects of life: body, emotional, mental, and physical health. Christine insists that women should be consistent with their work and their day-to-day schedule. Inconsistency leads to an unbalanced life, which can lead to an unbalanced business sense. The other thing is, that if women can learn not to compete with each other but to come to the aid of one another, they can together form a force and business authority to be reckoned with.
Christine argues that women are in this collective business together. Everyone has their own lane and their own strengths. Not one is the same. They should not be intimidated by each other but instead, admire the strength of others, learn from each others’ strengths and stories, and appreciate that as something to attain for themselves in the future. Women are naturally compassionate, nurturing, yet willed and powerful as individuals, imagine the power of a group of women as a whole!
As a parting shot, Christine Mendoza says, “Educate yourself. Let life be your best teacher. Master your strengths while always being a positive work in progress. Do not see a failure as a loss, but as a learning experience.” If you want to find more information about Christine Mendoza follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter at “FaceNBawdy”.
