First off, I must say go girl, Sarah, I hear every bit of this and agree we need to lean way in. Personally I use to find it difficult and just wanted to be accepted and loved by the people working under my supervision and then one day I had a light bulb moment; and it was simple, I said you are a mother of 4 and you don't cut your kids slack why not apply the same rules and principal in decision making in the work place as the boss, treat them with respect, understanding, show compassion when it is needed but stay firm and delegate your wishes/commands. Now I am taking on one of the biggest challenges in life that scares me but I love what I do and hunger for it so badly that I live, breathe, speak and sometimes obsess over owning my own restaurant/cupcake bakery that I have to take a moment and say God is by your side, pinch yourself it is happening, embrace it, enjoy it every step of the way. So to you I say embrace it, we are knocking down those proverbial glass ceiling whether the world is ready or not, we are coming full force and taking our place as business owners and founders.
