Why Women Choose to Work If They Don’t Have To [10 Signs You’re Passionate About What You Do]

Dear Fempire,

Let’s talk about perfectionism.

How are things going? Probably amazing because you’re here reading this now. (Thank you and you’re welcome!) Have you ever heard of the saying, “do what you love and never work another day in your life”? That’s us. We are the women who choose to do what we love. We are the women who get to have our cake and eat it too.

Meaning: We can have two good things at one time. Like, happiness and our career. Or like having both love and independence without having to choose.

Yes, sometimes we throw our hands up and ask ourselves… whyyy? What’s the point? Why make or do more than you need to, when you’re making enough now to get by? Why work hard? Why add another layer of greatness? Why choose to grow and see what you’re made of? WHY CHOOSE TO POSSIBLY FAIL!?

Here’s why ladies: Yeah, that was a lot of why’s. Basically, the point is right there within ourselves. The point is our whole existence. We weren’t put here on this earth to just make money and die. We have a calling and we must answer it. Making enough money just to scrape by isn’t building a legacy for us or our children. It also isn’t what being alive is all about. We don’t need money to be happy but it sure is fun, great, and convenient to have!

Protip: Growing up in poverty, or with a single parent, might be fostering a poor “money mindset”. So, if you find yourself wanting to chase dreams but being held back by the thought, “Why do more than I have to?”…this might be you. The first step is asking yourself and then acknowledging. The next is changing the way you think and plan around the idea of money. Beginning to believe you are worthy of accomplishing big goals with money on the other side of them has got to transition to a realistic notion inside that beautiful mind of yours. It’s possible to make BIG bucks and still have a BIG heart.

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” – Maya Angelou

When this magic happens, money follows and flows almost naturally. Make your money story a beautiful one my friends!

What does freedom mean to you?

Fempreneurs Answer: It’s doing what we are meant to do in this world, and in doing so, it simply brings a smile to our face. It’s worth it and every goal accomplished is a breath of fresh air.

Protip: Freedom is inner awareness.

It’s knowing that nothing, and we mean nothing can touch the truth of who we truly are. That is freedom. It’s waking up and jumping out of bed instead of rolling out onto the floor, because what we do excites the hell out of us! Work orWERK*, as we like to say at Wonder Women Mastery, has meaning and ideas come effortlessly. We believe (like truly believe) what we do makes a difference in the world and when we give valuable meaning to what we do, we are living our best lives. It’s about showing up and giving it our all with every opportunity that arises and with every being in our mind-body-spirit. If we deeply enjoy what we are doing… WE EXPERIENCE TRUE FULFILLMENT.

So how do you know you’re doing what you were always meant to do? Here are 10 signs you’ll know


10 Signs You’re Passionate About What You Do

1. You find yourself in creative floments

“When you’re experiencing floment you’re not rowing against the waves, you’re rowing with them.”-WWM

We are passionate about what we are doing when we get into the state of flow. Aka “floment”, coined by one of our CEO’s Jessica Fahnestock. So, what is floment and how do you know you’re in it? We wanna say, “you just know…” but we will get technical for you just a little bit.

Fempreneur Stat: According to Psychologist, Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the state of flow is complete immersion in what you are doing. He describes it as a mental state, “being completely involved in an activity for its own sake.”

Imagine floating down a river in your kayak… the wind blowing just right and every row pushes you a bit further to your destination or goal. Ahh.. smooth sailing, if you will. When you’re experiencing floment you’re not rowing against the waves, you’re rowing with them. Everything just makes sense. Everything flows. Your ego disappears and time floats by so effortlessly. Acknowledge when you’re in the state of flow, because it is such a beautiful thing to experience.

2. Your heart skips a beat when you think of ideas

No, we aren’t talking about heart palpitations! We are talking about the feeling you get.. You know.. When you feel love. It’s similar to how you feel when you lay your eyes on your child for the first time, when you look at the love of your life, or when you snuggle your fur baby. When you’re doing what you love in terms of work, it’s not work. It nourishes your soul.

Protip: Take notes when you come up with ideas. Pull out a notebook, your journal, or even your phone and put it down or record it somewhere so you can revisit it later.

When our heart skips a beat what really is happening is the release of dopamine, which gives you that focused energy. It gives a sense of euphoria and the type of energy that creates motivation. The motivation for you to do your best work, the work you were always meant to do in this world. The work of a Wonder Woman.

3. You feel accomplished at the end of your days

Every single day you look forward to the work you’re about to do. You work effortlessly, checking off one by one all of the things you have to do. You end your day accomplishing everything you were meant to do, and sometimes more than that. Pat yourselves on the back, because you are successfully building your Fempire

Others will see your hard work and tell you (or love bomb you) how amazing your work is. And hey, people giving you compliments at the end of the day is not a bad thing either… take your humble pants off and take the compliment. You deserve it.  There is something about setting a goal and achieving it and if you’re on the fence, don’t give up. Stick with it. Give it… no… GIVE yourself a chance. Keep believing and give yourself permission to be fulfilled. You’ve got this.

“Dare to take chances, follow your dreams, risk it all, fall in love, believe in yourself, ask questions, let go, make mistakes, start over, speak your truth, take responsibility for your actions, find what makes you happy, live for the now.” -WWM

4. What you do leaves the day better than how you found it

Let’s welcome this attitude into our lives. This can be people, experiences, events, you name it. Think of the impact we can have on the world and how big of a difference we’d be making, not only in our own lives, but the lives that surround us. When we leave the day better than how we found it, we are creating positivity in the world. It can be making your bed, clearing off your desk at the end of the day, an interaction with someone at work, or even your relationship with your partner. It can be making someone laugh or just lending a hand…. IT ALL MATTERS! This goes hand in hand with being mindful. The best thing about doing this is that you get to have these wins as you go through life.. They’re yours to relish in. Take a deep breath and breathe in the air of success and satisfaction, and let it out slowly. Feels good, right? 


5. You constantly hit your goals, no matter how small

When you love what you do, every step, action, and thought matters. It’s meaningful to you because it’s yours. It doesn’t matter if you set big or small goals. You’re setting them and that’s a step toward you living in your greatness. It’s easy to set large goals, but sometimes not so easy to stick with them. So then what do we do? We start off small and work our way to the BIG ones, or The Impossible, as we like to say ! That’s not to say we can’t speak into existence what we want our big goals to be. Please do that…! Set your small goals and achieve them. Build your momentum so you can get to the good stuff, and set those affirmations to high.

Remember: What matters is that you’re taking the leap. That is powerful and we promise, your future self will praise you for the hard work you’re putting into her right now. If you need a community to support you, we got you!

6. You feel aligned with what you are doing

Finding your passion is figuring out what you were put here on this earth to do. It brings you happiness and brings you immense joy, not only to yourself, but to everyone it touches.  So, what lights you up? What makes you feel good… or just right? What speaks to your soul? Tap into that and attract your desires from the universe.

Do this, and attract desired results! When you’re doing what you were meant to do, it should feel easy. If it’s hard to get up everyday to go to work, then you might consider taking a moment to dig deep and really think about your life and how you’re choosing to live it. Connecting with your reason WHY or your reason to fight for it, can really help in moments like this.

It’s okay to not figure out your passion or life’s purpose right away. Sometimes we have to experience life for a while and then it will come to us naturally. We discover it , or uncover it. It’s not something we force, but something we seek.

7. You are constantly inspired and have never ending ideas

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” – Ella Fitzgerald

When we are passionate about what we do, we figure out quite easily what inspires us. Sometimes it can be a book, drawing, music, or being one with nature. When you’re doing what you love, you can find yourself creatively inspired at every turn. A sign on the road, an item at the store can make you think of new and innovative ways to help people.

It can also be as simple as gazing into your kids eyes and being present with them in that moment realizing it won’t last forever. That can be a huge inspiration for us to make an impact on their lives or help other women do the same. Being inspired ties into your floment. When you’re in the flow you’re likely experiencing some form of inspiration. When we feel this, we are headed in the right direction of achieving our goals. Not only that but we are one step closer to fulfilling our life’s purpose. Inspiration matters and is the foundation for original ideas.

8. You know the risk to reach it, is always worth taking

“Decide whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying.” – Amelia Earhart

We get it… risks are scary. No, we aren’t going to succeed every time, and we have to remember that it is okay. When we fail, we grow. When we grow, we live.  We have touched on fear in a previous blog and will likely keep talking about it. Do the things that are uncomfortable. Uncertainty can be daunting, but it’s a part of life ladies, and you don’t have to do it alone.

Get up on stage and speak, there’s people in the audience whose lives are waiting to be changed.  Invest the money into marketing for your business, your community is waiting to find out about you. Our biggest rewards come from the results of taking risks.  It’s, actually, an essential tool towards building character.

So get to risk taking ladies, your goals and courage are on the other side of it!

9. You literally feel as though you’re on top of the world

This is the feeling you get when you overcome obstacles and accomplish your goals. You get the chance to look back and see how far you’ve come. The people you’ve helped, the strength you’ve gained, and the knowledge you’ve acquired. It’s empowerment at it’s finest, with a 360 degree view of insightful perspective that will help you continue to solidify your legacy and change in the world around you, or the world in general.

But this doesn’t have to be at the end of your legacy creating. You can feel this after your first BIG win. We talked about small wins earlier, but what about the big ones? This is that. When you get handed that degree, when you get your first high-ticket client, when you reach you 50lbs weight loss goal, or when you publish your first book. Every step, every dollar, every pound, every page counted towards this massive feat. Now, you are richer and more capable than ever as a holder of this knowledge. Use to continually move yourself forward, Queens.

10. You look forward to what’s next

Chances are, you’re stronger, smarter, and quicker. The thought of what’s next excites you. Maybe you don’t even know what that is yet, but it’s out there and you’re determined to find it. Some people might ask you, what else is there for you to do? Why do you feel the need to prove yourself?

The answer to that, is that you don’t have to give them one. Some people don’t understand the passion to excel just because we can, but that’s what makes us beautiful.

So, when you finally see the glass ceiling and aren’t afraid of shattering it. You’re there. Now, being scared isn’t a problem anymore. We are powerful women who aren’t afraid to climb to the top and claim what’s rightfully ours! Success Cake! We look forward to our growth, because with that comes epiphanies in life. We figured out who we are and where we’re going. Without growth we are hurting ourselves, so if we haven’t already, it’s time to quit thinking about it and be about it. It’s time to walk the walk and talk the talk, ladies. Women like us were meant for more. So after you’ve done the thing, and eaten your cake, time to put the fork down and look ahead to what’s next.

“Even if we don’t have to, we choose to, because we want to.” WWM

Fulfillment at last!

So, how do you feel right now? Are you doing what you’re passionate about and not just what you’re expected of? Are you full of all of the sweet things life has to offer? We really hope so, because you deserve nothing but success, happiness, and true freedom within yourself.  We are destined to create the path, even if it’s from scratch, that takes us to our own legacy. When we create our legacy we put a stamp on our future generations. We do this for our life’s purpose,  our children, and for our children’s children. A healthy legacy creates opportunity, even if that opportunity is only inspiration.

As Wonder Women, we take that path with resilience, strength, and courage.

Most of all we take it with BRAVERY. We are programmed to chase growth and fulfillment and when we combine those two ingredients, we don’t have to do it, We want to do it. 

What a beautiful cake of life we have baked for ourselves.
