What do you think of when you hear the phrase “I am my sisters’ keeper”? A bond between two sisters is stronger than one can imagine. Your experiences that you may have shared growing up tend to carry on into adulthood.
In business, one must keep this phrase in mind. Many women give accounts where they fight harder for higher positions than men. Is this true? Maybe not in every case but there is a bit of truth there. Some jobs in the past have been male driven for so long one in management may feel that a woman would not be suitable for the position. However, keep your sisters in mind.
Debbie Allen and her sister Phylicia Rashad are a fine example how supporting the family and sibling dreams can help you in reaching your goals. They equally have allowed each other to shine in their area of expertise. They both began in theatre and continued to pursue separate dreams. Phylicia Rashad is most commonly known for her role as Clair Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Debbie Allen is most commonly known for her role in Fame and her amazing choreography skills. They both have proven to be major examples and role models for women.
So of course competition is necessary for the rat race to continue. There may even be hollywood conflict and rumors tend to spread when you are making strides in the industry of your choice. However, remember that support and encouragement is needed, even if the next woman is not your actual sister. Keep her in mind and in your prayers.
