Don’t hide it, girl: we know you’ve got serious brains, and so do your vinas. Whether you’re a street-smart traveler, a bookworm graduate or a running-my-own-business mom of two, you’ve got some knowledge stored in your brain. As much good as it does in your mind with your million to-do lists, it’s worth even more shared with the women in your life. This is the basic principle of Shine Thoery – AKA the smarter, more successful, and more powerful your women friends are, the better it is for you and women everywhere.
SHARE THE WEALTH
In our fast-paced world, the more you know, the better. We of course hope for the success and happiness of our vinas, but why not help them get there? The knowledge you’ve picked up throughout your years is unique to you, but that doesn’t mean it has to benefit only you. Share what you know with your girls: if your new vina is opening a business and you have a connection, take the time to help her out.
SHE’S GOT YOUR BACK
With all we have to do these days, it’s easy to forget even your own advice. Inevitably, even the best of can have some days when life gets us down and we feel a little lost. When you share your advice, it’s like backing up your iPhone: even when you forget, there’s someone there to remind you of your own perspective and drive.
IT’S ALL ABOUT PERSPECTIVE
Sharing your own knowledge comes at a cost: we’re not always right.
On the flip side, that’s not a bad thing. Learning new perspectives and ways of thought are a part of life. Sharing your knowledge can start a dialogue between you and your vina that changes you both for the better.
BETTER YOUR GIRLS, BETTER THE WORLD
The world’s a messy place, ladies. Not only does sharing your knowledge better your individual lives, but can also help to better the world. One girl’s mind is a powerful place, but a girl plus some smart, strong-willed others can change the world. A movement for change never starts with one person alone, but takes the strength of a people joined for a cause.
Don’t let what you’ve learned end with you, ladies. Spread the love, and we’ll all be the better for it. Shine, girls, shine!!
