Have you ever felt a pull towards someone that you couldn’t explain right away? Have you ever seen a woman at an event and thought “Ohhh, I need to talk to her!”
You have probably just spotted a dynamic woman. You know when you feel that tiny spark!
“What is a dynamic women?” Well, I’m going to tell you right off the bat who a dynamic woman really is. A dynamic woman is…you, of course.
We are all dynamic women and it's really important that we recognize this in ourselves.
Creating an all-inclusive community of women
In 2013 I wanted to start a women's community, a global club for women to come together, support each other, connect, learn, grow, champion each other, be friends with each other, and do business with each other. I was trying to come up with a word that would encompass all kinds of women, you know, like the shy ones and the outgoing ones, the business women, the moms and the non-moms.
I wanted to include all women, regardless of age, demographic, likes/dislikes. A community that was truly all inclusive so that no woman would feel like, “Oh, that's not me, so I can't be a part of that group.” This is where the word “dynamic” came from.
Dynamic. It’s powerful and active. It means different things to different people because it can encompass many different qualities. And that's why I really love the word.
When I started the live Dynamic Women events, I launched eight locations around British Columbia. At each one I would ask the group, “Hey, what makes a woman dynamic?”
They shot back words like: sassy, vicious, free, carefree, loving, organized, and so many other words that were unique to them. The women also used words that described how women do things, not just descriptions of who they were or their titles in society.
A dynamic woman focuses on who she is, not her titles, nor what she does, so when she shows up as a dynamic woman she is her authentic self.
Remember back to a time when you’re talking with a group of women, and one seemed to stand out from the rest and you thought, “Ah! she seems to be the person to know.” Or perhaps you saw a woman quietly keeping to herself at the table, but you think to yourself, “Hey, there's something mysterious about her and I need to meet her.”
All those times that you felt a sort of magnetic pull towards someone…that was probably a dynamic woman.
Now, you may be wondering “Diane, why did you bother to start this group, this community of dynamic women, this global club? Why do feel so strongly about putting time, energy, and resources into building the global club?”
Well, three main goals come to mind:
Today, through the Dynamic Women global club, my podcast, and my blog, I am building a higher level of inclusivity for our society where any women can belong.
I purposely chose not to use words like “confident” or “powerful” in the name of this community because I felt like women might not view themselves as confident or powerful, and thus exclude themselves from the group. Even though these are powerful words, I still felt they were limiting and could turn people away.
In the Dynamic Women community, we are allowed to build true relationships, without judgment, and create genuine connection with our fellow women. We're a community where we thrive as individuals, thrive as a group, and were we can authentically support each other.
Next week on the blog we’re going to talk a little more about 5 qualities that make a woman dynamic.
