There are many women that want to be able to be successful in business, but most of the advice that are given to those women who want to achieve are pretty generic, leaving many women to struggle in business. One woman, however, have figured out how to be successful in business, and is now an icon for women to follow in order to be successful in business. That woman is Susan McGalla.
She had many leadership positions in business, including being the former president of American Eagle Outfitters Inc, former chief executive of Wet Seal Inc, and the Vice President of Business Strategy and Creative Development for the Pittsburgh Steelers. One must wonder, however, on why she is able to be as successful in business as she is right now.
One reason that she may have been this successful is in the fact on how she was raised in her childhood. She grew up in a family with two older brothers and a football coach, who didn’t cut her any slack at all just because she was a girl. She was brought up by parents who had encouraged her to work very hard and to present her ideas with confidence, regardless of what her audience thinks. Her gender, as well as other people’s gender, were considered something that wasn’t a helpful thing or a hindering thing.
For that reason, she was always comfortable around men and women, and was able to work well with both, which is a key concept on how to be successful. Her confidence had made other women’s confidence to be high as well, and they are now more likely to work with both men and women with great success.
