Inspirational Speaker for Women in Business

Inspiring Female Speaker for Women in Business – Jen DeVore Richter

By | keynote speaker, professional speaker | No Comments

What happens when we give up “good on paper” to go for great?

People pleasing. It crushes happiness and steals dreams. Some women live most of their lives checking boxes and doing the “good on paper” routine. The results can be failed relationships, career turmoil, and unfulfilled potential. But, what happens when we give up “good on paper” to go for great?

Who’s the Boss?

I did everything that was expected of me as a young woman raised in the “women can have it all” 1980s. I admired the powerful women I saw on sitcoms like “Who’s the Boss” with their big shoulder pads and sky high hairdos.

Lacking a powerful female role model in my life, I clung to those TV role models and mimicked them in my real life. My favorite was Angela Bower from Who’s the Boss.

  • I graduated college – check!
  • Landed a high powered job – check!
    • (I worked at Kennedy Space Center managing marketing. I worked with astronauts & celebrities, put in 60+ hours per week, and only made $26,000 a year.)
  • Earned a master’s degree at night while working at KSC to move up the corporate ladder- check!
  • Married Mr. Right (Now) before I turned 30 to avoid social stigma of being unmarried- check! (I had nothing in common with him.)
  • Eventually I quit Kennedy Space Center to chase the money in a job I hated in pharma sales because my former husband told me to. – check!

Behind closed doors, the reality was that living a “good on paper” life gave me an unfulfilled career, a divorce, and tons of stress.

I felt like a raccoon with my arm caught in a trap. Have you ever felt that way?

Rock bottom came in 2013 when I was diagnosed with a tumor caused by endometriosis. The emergency hysterectomy was three months before my wedding to my second husband. We planned to elope to Paris and I was devastated.

I had four organs removed in three surgeries in two years from endometriosis. 

One day, while recovering from surgery after surgery, I decided to give up “good on paper” and started making bold decisions in my life.

  • Started my own business helping other women achieve their full potential
  • Got married in Paris
  • Wrote multiple books
  • Recently moved across the country from Florida to Colorado at 46 years old

What I’ve learned helping peopletop women's business coach

What I’ve learned from speaking to and coaching thousands of women is that not only are women today still people pleasing and living “good on paper” lives, but now more than ever we suffer from unrealistic expectations due to social media forcing almost constant bombardment of what the “perfect” life is supposed to be like.

So, right now, let’s have a conversation about how to banish “being good on paper” and people pleasing forever so we can have lives of greatness and step into our full potential.

I want you to be empowered to live a bold and brilliant life on your own terms unaffected by media influences, family expectations, or spouses that don’t see your full potential.

Are you ready?

Four people pleasing traps:

  1. Messages – telling people what they want to hear
  2. Decisions – doing what others want us to do even if it’s not what is best for us
  3. Events – finding ourselves in the wrong places
  4. Relationships – being with the wrong people

When we find ourselves caught in a people pleasing trap, they key to unlocking it is found in this simple question:

Is this moment mine?

Meaning: 

  • Are these words from my heart? 
  • Is this what I really want to do? 
  • Is this where I want to be? 
  • Is this relationship good for me?

Tired of checking boxes and living the “good on paper” life? Chart a new path!

Take action

In conclusion I want to leave you with this thought and action. People pleasing is like crossing the street to a new life.

Stop. Look. and Listen.

  1. Stop people pleasing and trying to live up to unrealistic expectations.
  2. Look inward to find your full potential.
  3. Listen to your gut and those that champion your best life.

Give up being “good on paper” and go for great!

Women in Leadership Keynote Speaker

By | keynote speaker, professional speaker | No Comments

Women in business make great leaders.

Yet only 5% of CEOs are women.

Women face unique challenges in leadership the most common being the self-esteem gap.

According to research by DDI, confidence is the top leadership difference between men and women although there is NO difference in capability between men and women.

Women are less likely to rate themselves as highly effective leaders.

Organizations with women leaders financially perform better.

Women need role models, mentors, and guidance to close the “self esteem gap.”

Why Values Matter in Business Leadership

By | inspiration, professional speaker | No Comments

And how you can be successful once your values are identified

Values in business leadership is an important topic if you are interested in attracting like-minded people to you or your business.

When you lead with your values, you can attract the perfect clients, hire the right employees and staff, find partnerships that will work, and find more fulfillment and purpose in what you do.

Here’s a confession: When my business partners and I started Boss Women Rock in 2013, we made the mistake of not identifying our shared values up front. This result was that we attracted mismatched clients and dealt with a lot of frustration in the early years.

It was hard for us to instantly see the repercussions of this since our business was booming and our client list was long. We actually had the problem of too many clients! But over time, what resulted was frustration from having to compete on price and just being seen as a commodity to a few of the business owners we worked with.

Because we failed to identify and communicate our values early on, we were frequently stressed out because we were working on projects that didn’t give us purpose. We were having communication problems with mismatched clients who didn’t see eye-to-eye with our approach and we had less job satisfaction.

There were so many days when I personally felt like giving up because I was not understood and respected.

I had a change of heart when we started making tough decisions about the types of projects we would accept and who we wanted to work with. We took time to examine our business from afar and realized that we needed to do this work. We need to identify and communicate our values.

My professional values are:jen devore mantra

Being true to self – trusting and having faith to be the person I am meant to be. Not an imitation or skin deep version. But showing up with everything that I am.

Financial magnetism – valuing my experience and knowledge enough so that others will too. Getting paid what I’m worth and not accepting second best.

Authority – owning my place as an expert in my field and sharing what I know in a way that is empowering and inspiring to others.


At Boss Women Rock, our values are:

  • Trustworthy & Integrity Filled Reputations that help build our brand and business.
  • Passionate Spirits that keep us motivated and inspire others.
  • Positive Attitudes about our work and lives.
  • Bold Visions for our future and current success as well as our clients.
  • Creative Minds to produce great work.
  • Results Oriented Actions for a more effective approach.
  • Fun, Playful Environments to make coming to work and working with us a joy.
  • Smart People so we can learn from each other.
  • Leadership Abilities to grow in our careers, lead by example and teach others.

The result has been amazing since staying true to our values!

In the last year, our revenue and profit is up while the number of projects we work on has gone down. Now, don’t be confused. This is a good thing! We’re working smarter and not harder. We’re working with the right clients that have shared vision and values. The result is that we have less stress and are happier at work on a day to day basis.

How To Identify Your Values for Business Leadership

So, how do you identify your values so that you can communicate them clearly and attract the perfect clients? The goal is to narrow down your values to the Top 3.

  1. To do this, start by creating a list of the values that your favorite existing clients have. This could be their corporate culture values and their personal values as well.
  2. Next, make a list of the values that describe your family members and friends. These are the people you enjoy being around the most and probably have the most in common with you.
  3. Then make a list of the values that your best employees, contractors, or partners have. Again, this can be their personal values.
  4. To wrap up the exercise, make a list of your values.
  5. Finally, you will look at your lists and combine like values together and eliminate the ones that are redundant or just not as strong.
  6. Narrow the list down to the top 6.
  7. Then narrow it down even further to the top 3.

Why am I Telling You This Story?

Because once you have your values identified, and you can communicate them, you too will experience greater satisfaction and fulfillment at work or in your business.

The main takeaway here is to remember to establish your values upfront with your clients and colleagues. It will save you tons of time and unnecessary stress in the long run. Let your values be known, and you’ll attract the attention of like-minded individuals, setting you up for success.
