Christine Mendoza is changing the perception on women in business; Here’s How

Published

on

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!

In Summation

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”. You also do not want to miss her new podcast show, “Bawdy Talk with Christine Mendoza”, launching in July, and see her on her YouTube channel: FaceNBawdy. All platforms are made by a woman, for all types of women, regardless of background or present circumstances.

Published

on

Many freelancers dream of living a financially free life filled with success. That can be very hard at times due to the trap of doing everything yourself. You never should. Many entrepreneurs are stuck in “solopreneur world” stressing and overdoing themselves when they can make the same amount of money delegating sales and fulfillment. Check this out:

Alex Schlinsky is the Founder and CEO of Prospecting On Demand™, a company specializing in helping coaches, consultants, and agency owners implement the systems and strategies necessary to scale their company and become successful CEOs. Over 125 entrepreneurs have built 6-figure companies utilizing the POD™ community and training.

Alex is decorated speaker and author, making appearances at college universities and being featured in renowned publications such as Entrepreneur Magazine, Forbes, and more. It wasn’t always the limelight for Alex. He’s had many successes, challenges, and major responsibilities. Here are some of his: 

‘Can you tell me the story of your prior successes, challenges, and major responsibilities?’

Successes:

Alex has a major list of successes. After working hard on Prospecting On-Demand, Alex has over 500 students. This leads him to many other successes like speaking at his alma mater UCF for Leadership Week educating others on how to scale their businesses. Not only does he mentor over 500 students but owns a 6-figure marketing agency working with personal injury attorneys and owns a 6-figure coaching company. Alex has spoken for USF NSLS inductions 4 times and was published in Entrepreneur, Forbes, and many more agencies. To add the cherry on top, 125+ agencies/coaches hit 6-figures with POD™ and about 20 have hit 7-figures with POD™. A personal achievement of Alex is successfully achieving his childhood dream of working with the Miami Dolphins.

Challenges:

As for challenges Alex explains it best.

“As I got started: Working part-time while at school. Post-graduation realizing my college path led to a dead-end and I had to restart at square 1. With no corporate job, I’ve always wanted to figure it out on my own led to some LEAN years. Working for the Dolphins and in MMA meant working weekends, long hours, deadlines, and very low pay. Struggled to pay rent for some time while my wife worked as a waiter.”

More specific: Mostly great investments in coaching, but one in particular ($30k investment) crippled me for a while. 

Major Responsibilities:

Alex also had a lot of major responsibilities as well! He was handling everything for the agency before ReachLocal stepped in. Did prospecting, sales, and even tried to do fulfillment (ads) even though I was terrible. 
For POD™, created all the content, did all the sales, managed a team of 3-5, made massive investments in coaching that I had to do the work for, etc.
