Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.
My name is Dolores Hirschmann and I'm a mum of four, entrepreneur, speaker, author, TEDx organizer, strategist, and coach. I work with Speakers, Entrepreneurs, Authors, and Executives to CLARIFY their message. My clients gain the CLARITY they need to communicate and engage their audience, teams, and stakeholders. My clients shift from talking about what they do to talking about what they stand for. They lead the conversation. They become THOUGHT LEADERS. Thought Leadership allows my clients to realize the financial and impact goals they envision.
I'm currently working on expanding the agency side of my business where we not only co-create our clients business strategy, we also become their team in implementing it.
Tell us about your favorite Ellevate Network memory or success story. Why are you a member?
I am new to Ellevate so I don't have a lot of stories to share except that the reason why I'm here is because so many women encouraged me to explore and connect. It felt like a sisterhood even before I joined!
How would you define your professional mission?
I believe in guiding impact entrepreneurs to the clarity they need to realize the impact of their work. By combining my background in business, marketing, communications and coaching I offer my clients what they need to play big in their space.
What project have you worked on that you’re most proud of? Why?
As a TEDx organizer, I was incredibly proud of bringing new ideas, inspiration and being the catalyst for change in my community. For a whole day, we brought 16 speakers to an audience of over 1,200 people who were nurtured by ideas, connection and a sense of community.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Giving winds to my client's wings and seeing their impact in the world.
What is it about your job that makes you feel it’s the right fit for you?
I love my work. How do I know? Every time I'm engaged with my clients time flies and I am left more energized and empowered than ever!
What would you say your personal superpower is?
My personal superpower is ALWAYS embracing confusion and finding my path. Though it's always easier to do for someone else than for myself... I've been called the "queen of clarity" but in all honesty, I love removing the noise in communications, strategies and business models and aligning the team with the CORE intention at hand.
What does success look like to you?
Success looks like flexibility, deciding how I spend my time, seeing the impact my clients have because of our work together and of course, having financial freedom!
Is work-life balance a problem for you? What is one no-fail tactic you use to create balance?
I've been a working mom from the beginning. I've raised 4 children while starting multiple businesses my no-fail tactic is: - Delegating what does not add for you... in my case (laundry, cleaning and other house duties) so that I can spend more time with my family and doing the things I LOVE (cooking, entertaining, etc) - NOT WORKING ON WEEKENDS - NEVER and protecting my time. Taking my own business as a job and saying goodbye to my boss (myself) at 5 PM each day - Setting boundaries for self-care and setting the time on my calendar
What advice would you offer future leading ladies wishing to break into your industry?
- Trust your gut - Never underestimate what you know - You will never learn if you can do it if you don't try it!
