Michele Lamoureux: The Power of the Feminine
Today we are talking about how to embrace your femininity as a way of reclaiming your power and manifesting from feminine energy instead of the masculine which is what is fueling business and life. The show notes are at https://thegoodlifecoach.com/035
In Corporate America there is a masculine paradigm that has been leading the way for generations. Women want to change the system, have equal pay, and the same job opportunities; yet many women are still operating in a way that doesn’t support younger women coming up or even their peers. This is obviously a generalization, but so many women tell me stories that leave me feeling frustrated. Even though we’ve come so far – we have so much farther to go. I thought that the world of entrepreneurship would be different. Women using their feminine energy to create and build success on their own terms. Many women are doing this, but I was surprised that the popular and “cool” language used to describe success that women have adopted as their own is all based on the masculine. “Crushing it”, “hustle”, “push”, “killing it”, and “slay” are the words women are using to describe how to create success. Instead, I am inviting women to think about bringing in the feminine as a balance to this energy. You can have hustle but you can also have “flow”. You can push when you need to, but also “allow”. You can be “killing it and crushing it and slay” or you can also balance that by “doing what you love, taking inspired action, and trusting.” Mother Earth serves as a reminder and example of the feminine. She gives life and supports life. Everything has its time and process. Women intuitively understand that bringing in “trust and flow” allows things to unfold in their time. Michele’s 3 Best Tips to Embrace the Feminine:
Think about your work environment and how you can support other women. If you are an entrepreneur, what energy do you need more of right now? If you have been operating out of the masculine, bring in feminine energy to balance and not burn yourself out. Remember that feminine energy is powerful. Resources

Cynthia Besteman - Cancer Warrior + Green Beauty CEO (rerun)
Cynthia Besteman was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and threw out all of her toxic skincare products when she realized that they weren’t the “natural” products they promised to be. In 2015 Violets Are Blue is launched. She used her knowledge and passion for naturally-derived skincare ingredients to formulate a consciously-produced line of products, each one a true labor of love. In addition to developing new products for the Signature and Beloved lines, Cynthia provides patients at the Mt. Sinai Dubin Breast Center in NYC with a gifted package of Beloved products upon their first day of chemotherapy. She is also proud to have created a company that supports women helping women, with 10% of the purchase price of all products going toward skincare donations for cancer patients.
Born in Seattle, Cynthia first landed in New York City determined to find her way as an actress, after completing a major in theater at the University of Oregon. She worked on Broadway for 10 years before checking out the real estate scene and quickly became one of the top brokers in the city. After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in 2011, Cynthia’s successful career in the cutthroat world of New York City real estate came to a skidding halt.
While undergoing treatment, one of her first actions was to toss out all beauty products containing unsafe chemicals and synthetic fragrances, leaving her medicine cabinet bare. She was shocked by the mislabeling of many skincare and beauty products that were classified as “natural” while containing parabens, sulfates, and other chemicals known to work as endocrine disruptors linked to cancer and reproductive concerns.
Cynthia wanted to bring dignity back to the women being treated for breast cancer. She created her “Beloved” line which is specifically formulated for women dealing with cancer.
Cynthia wants women dealing with breast cancer to be called “warriors” instead of “thrivers and survivors” as she believes that puts too much pressure on people.
She helped with the Cancer Wellness Expo in New York City – inviting “ultimate warriors” to come together.
Loves speaking about her journey – because you can go through something and come out better. She launched her company in her 50s. She says if you know you want to make changes in your life – take action.
As long as you have the passion or start the journey to find the passion – it’s exciting.
