Power = Revenue + Capital

Darya Allen-AttarIt’s October and the last quarter of 2012. I keep one thing in mind every day: Power = Revenue + Capital. We will celebrate that equation and women who live it at our Bottom Line Broads Awards Luncheon on November 3rd at the Olympic Collection Banquet and Conference Center in Los Angeles (learn more). You will be inspired by the achievements of these women. For those of us who are on the journey, the Broads Circle Monthly Huddles are turning out to be a great way to really connect with a smaller group of women and expand on our revenue generating relationships.

This month the world lost Steve Jobs. The story of this “adopted” American of Middle Eastern descent who dropped out of college only to become a multi-billionaire is a great American success story. I have heard more wisdom about life and business from Steve Jobs since his death than I ever did during his short life.

I thought I would share a few Steve Jobs quotes that really appealed to me. Enjoy the below and remember to stay on top of your Money and Power game.

  1. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
  2. You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
  3. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
  4. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

To your success,
