Women’s Leadership Advice: Be A Memorable Character!

Someone I recently met at a conference emailed me and shared “Wow, You are a memorable character!”
Pegine-be memorable


I shared the comment on a Facebook group about Women’s Leadership Advice. I received responses from women saying “Go Girl” “You Rock” and so on. I also received a response saying

“That is rude”. I realized that many lurkers probably thought the same thing, Which lead to this post, “Are You Memorable?” and more importantly “Are You a Memorable Character?”  It’s not rude to be called a memorable character, it’s awesome and powerful!
The best women’s leadership advice I ever received was from one of my sponsors and a CSMO (Chief Sales and Marketing Officer) named Al Roth. He said, “People remember you, promote you, sponsor you, hire you, buy from  you and refer you because they remember you are a positive character.”

Women’s Confidence Grows When They Accept Deserved Kudos

Women are doers. They get the job done. They keep doing task after task, giving, giving, giving. “Hey, I just did my job, no biggie.” Confidence in women occurs when they can influence sponsors, gain visibility and share their wisdom, embrace the kudos!Women’s Confidence Grows - See more at:

When women don’t stop to acknowledge themselves and receive the kudos, accomplishments and applause from others (and themselves), they stop a series of experiences that will give the them confidence to take future action. Recognition develops the confidence they need for bigger and more profitable opportunities. Women miss the chance to influence sponsors, gain visibility and showcase their wisdom when they don’t embrace applause. Often times  women don’t reward themselves, appreciate themselves and certainly don’t think they are special after accomplishing a challenging, difficult, successful goal. “Hey, I just did what I was supposed to do, no big deal.

Women’s Leadership Speaker and Expert To Receive the “Rosie” Award

The “Rosie” is awarded to women who have proven themselves in the workplace, broken down barriers, entered non-traditional careers, and proven that “We Can Do It!” Pegine, Women’s Leadership Speaker and Expert, will receive the award at the (click for RSVP and tickets) 13th Annual Equal Pay Day Awards Luncheon on 4/8 Tuesday11:30 AM

Suzy Jackson, who nominated Team Pegine Inc CEO, a women’s leadership speaker and expert, Pegine, for the award wrote in the nomination form

Pegine’s greatest strength is her tenacity—she simply will not give up, and won’t let the others she leads and cares for give-up either. Ms. Echevarria has done some really amazing things because of her high level of commitment in three main areas.


Commitment to Herself – Pegine will be the first to tell you that as a teenager she was adrift. As a young Hispanic in the Bronx, New York she became involved with a girls’ street gang. But at age 17 she decided that what she was doing would only lead to her destruction and decided that to do something different, she needed to become a different person.

Commitment to her Profession and Company – Her early career experiences led her to specialize in the area of diversity and inclusion. Ms. Echevarria founded what would become Team Pegine, Inc. (TPI) in 1996 as a platform for developing, monitoring, reporting, and implementing strategies needed to eliminate the under representation of minorities, women, and people with disabilities in the workplace. In 2013 her company was named to the Jacksonville Business Journal 50 Fastest Growing Privately Owned Companies in North Florida.

Commitment to the Support of Women Leaders – Pegine has embraced her unique role in developing and supporting what she likes to call –fun, focused, feisty, fearless, financially prosperous females! Currently her work as a Women’s Leadership Speaker, coach and Expert is laser focused on women in leadership. Pegine sees women coming into their own in the 21st century, but they often times need help in making the transition from support to leadership. Pegine does not allow women to indulge in victimhood, but encourages, enlightens and reminds us that sometimes we have to “kick our own butt”!

The Spirit of Rosie award is named for the fictional character promoted in World War II as the ideal woman worker. More than six million women helped to build bombs, planes, tanks and other weapons that would eventually help win World War II. They became streetcar drivers, operated heavy construction machinery, worked in lumber and steel mills, unloaded freight and much more, thus creating an entirely new image of women in American society and setting the stage for upcoming generations.

Equal Pay Day symbolizes how far into 2014 women must work to earn what men earned in 2013. Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.

Program Sponsors for Equal Pay Day and the Spirit of Rosie Awards are the Women’s Center of Jacksonville, Mayor’s Commission on the Status of Women, American Association of University Women (AAUW), Florida State College at Jacksonville, and Biscotti’s Catering.

Women’s Leadership Advice: Mentor Our Girls Don’t Ban Bossy Girls

There is a new campaign called “BanBossy” started by Beyoncé and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook.  Are these women, unintentionally, perpetuating a negative image of bossy girls ? People are hearing  Ban Bossy Girls not “BanBossy”. Bossy girls are true to themselves, they may care that they are called bossy, but they keep on keeping on.  It is the girls that aren’t called bossy that we have to focus on. The hidden girl that stands to the side, the girl who doesn’t believe in herself and the girl that most people forget. Here is women’s leadership advice: mentor our girls don’t ban bossy girls.

Women in the workforce Finish this sentence: My experience as a Woman in the Workforce is…

Women: Send Your Work Story….Leadership Development

The role of women in the workforce has changed significantly over the past 50 years. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy commissioned a report on the status of the nation’s women workers. As part of an effort to commemorate the report’s anniversary, the Women’s Bureau recently launched a webpage to gather feedback on what America’s working women currently experience. Today, more women than ever are working, taking on leadership positions and starting their own businesses. What else has changed? The Women’s Bureau is inviting working women throughout the country to share their personal experiences.
