Save big on my go-to goodies
Tune in twice a week for practical strategies and candid conversations with entrepreneurs
I’m an international marketing coach, top-ranking podcast host, speaker, interiors lover and black coffee drinker.
Today’s episode is from a live conversation I held on Instagram for International Women’s Day with Kemi Nekvapil. Kemi is one of Australia’s leading coaches for female entrepreneurs, an author and an incredible international speaker. Her mission is to help women to own their worth, find their power, and use their voices.
Kemi discusses her book ‘Power: A woman’s guide to living and leading without apology’. We all have power and Kemi breaks it down into her 5 key principles; Presence, Ownership, Wisdom, Equality and Responsibility.
The theme for International Women’s Day is ‘Break the Bias’ but we also have to break the bias in our own heads. Don’t wait for others to give you permission. Use the opportunity to be present in your life, take ownership over your path, sit with wisdom, know that you are equal to everyone in the room, and be responsible for your own privilege.
Kemi Nakvapil shares her personal stories openly to illustrate her principles and how they have impacted her life. She is truly inspiring to listen to and I’m so grateful to be bringing you this incredibly important conversation.
To take ownership of your power, grab a copy of her book today!
Topics we discussed:
[2:27]: Acknowledgement of Country.
[3:14]: Kemi discusses what comes up when we think of the word ‘power’.
[5:04]: The definition of power is to do something or act in a particular way. We all have power. Kemi broke it down into 5 principles in her book: Presence, Ownership, Wisdom, Equality, and Responsibility.
[6:57]: Being present to all of your feelings is more powerful than walking around with half of your feelings hidden from yourself.
[7:48]: Being present in our lives is confronting. Once you’ve admitted the things that are or aren’t there, you have to take action.
[9:53]: When we become present, we can breathe.
[11:29]: Be present to your needs. As women, we’re trained to be present to others but we have to be present to our own needs.
[12:16]: Have agency – don’t let others define you or determine the course of your journey.
[14:34]: Taking ownership looks different for every woman.
[16:31]: When we wait for permission from others, we miss the opportunity to give permission to ourselves.
[20:18]: When Covid started, Kemi took a step back to be present. She had the wisdom to create a place of delight in a time of darkness and confusion. The Delight Diaries were born.
[22:40]: If we want to serve in a sustainable way, we have to serve ourselves.
[23:36]: Being responsible for our privilege is powerful if we own it and use it responsibly. For the majority of Kemi’s life, she has not felt equal.
[26:55]: Life happens to all of us, and in that, we are all equal.
[28:02]: We must be able to walk into any space and know that we are equal to every single person in that room.
[30:22]: We are responsible for our choices, healing and happiness.
[31:41]: Kemi talks about women and money. We aren’t often taught about money. There is power in saying you don’t have financial literacy. Take ownership and learn.
[35:29]: The theme for International Women’s Day is Break the Bias but we also have to break the bias in our own heads.
[38:00]: Kemi shares that power to her means living all of these principles.
[42:00]: Being guilty about privilege is boring. We have to use the privileges we have to make a more equitable and fun world.
[42:39]: Kemi’s book ‘Power: A woman’s guide to living and leading without apology by Kemi Nekvapil’.
