Power of Why with Petra Christensen

Update: 2020-12-23


Our Power of Why statement will be the driving force of our success or our failure. You will and must have something that pushes you to move when things get tough. It also sets a foundation for how you determine your value in three main areas.


Many of the people who have become successful will have a "Power of Why" story that made them go for the opportunity one more time. There is a higher level of creativity achieved when you are determined to win. That being said, a why that lacks deep roots will surely be carried away during your entrepreneurial journey.

This Power of Why series captures the candid responses from several coauthors of the Power of Why Volume 2 anthology. These entrepreneurs are from different ends of the earth with varying levels of experience that extend over 30 years. It is time for you to experience something greater through the eyes of women and men who are at the level where you are trying to go.

"If you have the opportunity to interact with a horse, go for it and really take it as a learning experience to learn about yourself and what we bring to the table" ~ Petra

Learning how to manage your why can be quite like riding a horse.
- Fear could be the reason you are knocked off the horse
- Insecurities are dangerous to your safety if left unchecked
- It takes more than just getting on the horse to be an expert at riding a horse
- Body language is a valuable asset
- Leadership is not always about who is the strongest physically

Your passion will be shown in your actions. For Petra, her passion for horses led her to save the money she needed to purchase her own horse at the age of 13. It inspired her to not only help others enjoy the same experience but also to teach the valuable business lessons she has learned.

Leading with confidence creates a bold foundation for women in business. This action is similar to the action taken by the lead mare. It proves to be great in corporate or in entrepreneurship. Thank you for the confident people that you have had the opportunity to interact with. How did they make you feel? What do you remember about their posture? What stood out about the conversation?

They showed up as the lead and you can do the same. It was passive leadership!

Breaking free from the social norms attached to what a "woman in leadership" should look like will always have positive effects. This requires you to look at your self-preservation and self-protection mode as well. (We all naturally have one) Learning about ourselves allows us to work, lead, teach, and even network at our highest capacity. You have that opportunity even now to live your dreams at the highest level.
