If you have followed my Blog, Facebook Page or know me in a the “Real World” you will know I like to create a stir of some form or another. Be it I am taking shots at Obama, trying to (very poorly) to solve the world’s problems with my Business / Geopolitics Commentating or the obvious play on my heritage (and over playing of my “Racist Card” whenever I am about to lose an argument).
Obviously when I say the term “Persian Man” in relation to myself and women it brings up a very sexist stereo-type of one form or the other. I think it’s quite funny actually as if anyone knows me I am the direct opposite of sexist. I was raised for some time by my mother who was an Inspector and Decorated Officer in Victoria Police and even though I am obviously a “Dude” – I know what discrimination is like.
I was even assaulted very badly when I was younger for being Middle-Eastern (even though I am a Christian) and strangely enough I value those experienced to today. I would have people at school not even talk to me and totally hate me because really of “The Colour of my Skin and not the Content of my Character” (even though I am not even that dark).
Be it Women, Gays, Muslims, Christians or anyone who gets persecuted / discriminated against unfairly – there is a chance you will find me in their corner to even out the playing field.
Bringing it back to Awesome Business Woman I have to call a Spade a Spade here. Sexism against women is still a massive problem today in the workplace and thankfully to a lesser extend in the Small Business / Entrepreneur game. I was incredibly lucky to meet an amazing Champion of Women’s Success in Business Natalie Moutia.
She is kind, intelligent and when I first met her I instantly felt her integrity driven pride come to the service. She is the Founder & Director of “Success Women’s Network” which is a network developed for Women to develop as successful business leaders. As Women can support each other in a safe environment, it can really help them get the right “Mindset” and support (especially if women are still rightfully knocked around after a life of discrimination against them).
I was lucky to be invited to guest speak at her events and found it quite similar to 4Networking (with obviously a lot more women than Persian Guys). Over time, Natalie and I became friends – we helped advise each other on challenges we have faced (and even spoke about some of our demons of the past) and I was again blessed to be invited as a speaker at her new coming Success School just for Women.
I think this is really cool and if you are based in Sydney, Australia – and are obviously female I really encourage you to check this one out.
Thank you again to Natalie Moutia and her team for the warmest welcome and I trust you enjoy their Press Release Below:
