There is a reason why I call myself an Alpha Female. I’ve explained the term a bit before here in this blog post. I also took the time to define it in my short eBook that you get when you sign up for my weekly eNewsletter.
An Alpha Female is a powerful and assertive woman. Her confidence is due to being an intelligent and intellectual problem-solver. Being an Alpha Female is a State of Mind based on choosing ambition and being proud of it. Type A Alpha Females often come across as strong-willed and selfish. A true Alpha Female puts the needs of her friends, family, and coworkers first, without sacrificing her principles or dignity. A true Alpha Female strives for synergy with the world around her. She wants a perfect work/life balance and is never complacent. She always nurtures the people in her life.

So focus on the positive in any position and celebrate what you find meaningful!
Email: I am guilty of the one-sentence emails. I get lazy and hide behind my computer. I am taking a conscious effort this month to have more in-person conversations.
Body Language: I noticed that I sit very upright to appear professional. There is a time and a place for that (like an interview). However, in a recent course, I took called Be Bold, Not Abrasive it was brought to my attention that to fit in with other men at the table it’s important to also come across as more relaxed.
