Why You Can't Find Your Passion
Do you know this feeling:  "How come I tried so much, but until now I can't find anything that truly fits me?"   Chances are, you went many paths. You started crossing many bridges. But you never really went ALL the way through.  You went back  You know if you go forward 50% and return again, that takes the same 100% energy that it would take you to go through ALL THE WAY across the bridge, to find out if that path is really not for you.   You stopped before you could find if it REALLY fits you or not.  You gave up before you could learn the essential knowledge to apply to any other field.  No knowledge is ever wasted.   You can always apply some of the things to your business, brand or life.  So next time, instead of starting and stopping halfway across the bridge, just go all the way through!    Exception: you can jump off one and land halfway through the other bridge and just keep going.   Leave your comment below: What is the passion that you want to pursue all the way through to see if it will be fitting as your purpose?

How to Network Honestly - [Book Review: How to win Friends and Influence] - www.ShareDiversity.com
How can we network modestly? How can we be ourselves in an environment that doesn’t invite us naturally? With people that might not share our values, viewpoints or interests? How can you be authentic in networking and building your personal brand?  I received this book back in 7th grade from my older brother. It’s a book that I always pick up again and again.    HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE by Dale Carnegie. Authenticity.   Authenticity is one of the most powerful tools in today's age of managed digital perceptions. It's a fresh breeze in the filter-on world of social media and personal branding. So let's look into -  What you can do to increase the authenticity of your personal brand:  1. What can I honestly admire about the person in front of me? (01:08)  2. Become genuinely interested in the person in front of you. (03:32)  3. Find things you have in common, other than what separates you. (05:31)  4. Happiness: You must have a good time meeting people if you want them to have a good time meeting you. (07:26)  5. Understand, don’t judge. Human beings are not logical beings, they are emotional creations.

Girl, you need to balance your skills so in the end you are good in everything.”   Well, I believe this is NOT the way you should live your life (and research backs me up). Especially when you think about the time you have in a day. I’ve been struggling a lot to understand how I should prioritize my day to get the most out of it.  Especially when I was doing things that didn’t come natural to me, I often felt exhausted and defeated.   Focusing on your weaknesses kills your energy! So that you feel exhausted and unproductive all at once, although you’ve been working hard on yourself.   In this episode I’ll give you the 5min fix on how to my should actually spend your day.  You can also watch the video on our Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WPwYPU7WJQ Go to http://www.sharediversity.com and subscribe to the newsletter ----------------------------------------­­­­­­­­---------------------------------­-­-­-­-­- Subscribe to the Muslim Businesswoman channel & please leave us a review on iTunes inshallah!  Follow us on  Twitter Instagram Youtube Facebook  Do you have a question?

PERSONAL BRANDING and why it is important {Business, Branding & Womanhood} - www.ShareDiversity.com
You get easily distracted from the competition? Wondering how to compete effectively? This episode is all about crushing your competition. How? By focusing on your personal brand.   We will cover what is personal branding and why it is important!   Leave your comment below: What are you struggling with right now in your brand? You can also watch the video on our Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5MmEsCRuTM&t Subscribe to the Muslim Businesswoman channel! Transcript: Just ask yourself the question: When have you compared yourself the last time to your competition and do you really know how to compete effectively? Comparison is so normal it happens to all of us if you are small or big if you are in the first stage of your business or very much advanced in what you do. You just compare yourself and you think I don't know how I can really level up to their level. How come they are crushing me and it can be really frustrating. The first takeaway I would give you is: Creativity doesn't come through competition. Actually competition kills creativity most of the times. That's because we don't have the focus on ourselves we have to focus on the people that we think are better than us and it really doesn't help us to look at what makes us unique. So the next point is branding really helps you to overcome that. Why? Because branding is your reputation and your reputation matters, because it can crush your competition. It doesn't matter if your competition has ten years more experience than you or has 100,000 more clients than you or followers it really matters what is your reputation. What do they say about Maryam doing photography or what do they say about Zeynep delivering any kind of service? Whatever you are doing it's really not about how much experience you have and that is going to crush the competition. But what do people tell about you? And most importantly what do they say about you behind your back? You want people to talk about you and your business your brand in the best way possible!  So how can you really create a stunning reputation something that holds on for years and might even overlive you? Three ways: 1. What is your purpose?  What is the purpose of your brand? What is the WHY behind what you do? Why are you doing what you're doing? Why do you want to add value to your audience? That's the most important in many ways why do you want to add value to your audience and what is really the purpose behind what you started. Is it because you wanted to leave a mark for your audience? Is because you wanted to make their lives easier? Is it because you wanted to just solve one specific problem for them? A lot of times it's a combination of these three but you need to know your WHY what's the purpose. 2. What are your characteristics?  What are the characteristics of your brand. That could be really: What is your personality like? Are you adventurous are you emotional are you funny are you relatable. That are the characteristics of your brand as well. So what are the kind of characteristics and values you want to be known for you can kind of think about 1-3 characteristics that you want people to repeat when they introduce you and your brand  Three is the most important and the whole line of things that you need to create a reputation is: 3. Execution. You need to execute 1. and 2. you need to execute your purpose and everything you do and you need to execute your characteristics execution can come through the products and services that you create. Through the content that you create around these products and services and around your brand.  Purpose + Characteristics + Execution = Your reputation

Transparency - "The Handshake" & Muslim businesswomen - www.ShareDiversity.com
That moment when I awkwardly refuse to handshake a man. It might seem weird to some people out there, but as a Muslim businesswoman, I have made many difficult decisions. Especially in the Western working environment, being visibly Muslim is already a challenge. Sticking out additionally by not compromising on physical contact with the opposite sex, that´s another level. My question is, however, what is a cultural habit and what is a value? Transparency means being truthful with everyone about the choices you make in your life. Leave your comment: 1) What experiences have you had with "the Handshake" situation? 2) What other stories can you share where they wanted you to compromise to "fit in", but your values tell you to "stand out".  Share your diversity with us!   Go to http://www.sharediversity.com and subscribe to the newsletter ----------------------------------------­­­­­­­­---------------------------------­-­-­-­-­- Subscribe to the Muslim Businesswoman channel & please leave us a review on iTunes inshallah!  Follow us on  Twitter Instagram Youtube Facebook  Do you have a question?

Energy - Cleanse your mind
In the moments I feel tired, exhausted, like all the energies of others burden my mind and mood. How do I get clear again? After discussions, setbacks and having to defend and explain yourself over an over again. At some point, we need to cleanse ourselves again. From the prejudice, pessimism, the racism, discrimination and ignorance of society. The ignorance of our values and our viewpoints. Just as scholars have explained - the Quran is like rain which pours down the earth and purifies everything it touches. So how do we clean our mind again to regain our energy?

The Road Less Travelled
Which road should I take? We can choose between short term success and long term impact. The one less travelled? What is my future? We can choose between safety and risk- the one with the most unexpected outcome- high-return uncertainty. We can choose easy and haram or difficult and halal. Apply this to the tiniest thing and it will imply major effects for your future.

Well-being Why I Fail
We as women often fall short in prioritizing stuff like wellness, well-being. Because when we are stressed over money, reputation and our future, wellness is out of the window. What we don't realize, if we take care of our wellness, we might not drown in stress. You can't climb a mountain from the top, you have to start at the bottom. Wellness is at the bottom. If you can master the foundation, the climb won´t be as hard in the end. Inshallah
