One of the best things about writing a book about women’s relationship with power is that I get to talk with so many interesting people about it. And since it seems that everyone is using my No Excuses Power Tool #8 – “Employ Every Medium” – by being the media these days, I have the opportunity to appear on many web-based radio shows, emanating from anywhere, and available for listening, often along with an accompanying blog post, at any time of the day or night. Media that simply could not have existed in years past.
One example of that trend is an interview I did with Chicke Fitzgerald, founder of the business development consulting firm Solutionz and the Executive Girlfriends’ Group (EGG).
EGG is a platform for executive women (both corporate and entrepreneurial). And it’s a ‘real world’ connection, not an electronic one, hosting a by invitation only conference call weekly, on Fridays from 4pm ET to 5:30pm ET. The website provides support to the group and allows the members to connect one on one, ask and answer questions, and to benefit from one another’s expertise.
I caught up with Chicke for our interview on her cell phone. Turns out that she was sitting at the Starbucks situated in the very Safeway store where I shop when I’m in Arizona. Though she lives in Tampa FL, she was in Arizona bringing her daughter to a summer camp.
In describing the mission of EGG, Chicke says she believes that our role in life is to leave behind a legacy and that one on one relationship is the best way to produce lasting results. So I want to share the interview with you!
Here’s the Executive Girlfriends’ Group show on blogtalkradio and also on iTunes, where you can download the MP3 files.
And if you want more, here’s how to read the accompanying blog post; join EGG then get the blog post here.
I’m delighted to have spoken to many new Executive Girlfriends via Chicke’s radio show, and to share EGG with you. Check it out—maybe you’ll find the very Solutionz you need!
