power coupleLena L. West is the leading expert on how women entrepreneurs can monetize social media. She is also the Founder of InfluenceExpansion.com, the home of the Influence Expansion Academy, the only social media mastermind program created specifically for women entrepreneurs. Lena spoke with me about why power couples are a myth this week on Last First Date Radio. Can two powerful people coexist in a relationship? Is competition destructive to a romantic partnership? How important is it for a powerful businesswoman to tap into her feminine self with her man? Following are loosely transcribed highlights of our radio show. 

Why Power Couples Are a Myth

Lena, why do you feel being part of a “power couple” is a myth?

My grandmother used to say, “the problem with you younger women is you want to be so right about how wrong a man is.” Oh my gosh, she’s so right! Particularly in my romantic relationships, I asked myself if I was trying to be right about how wrong a man is. If we try to compete with each other in our romantic relationships, the relationship won’t work.

{Don’t you love Lena’s grandmother’s quote? “The problem with you younger women is you want to be so right about how wrong a man is.”}

Are you traditional or more modern in your relationship values?

I’m very traditional in my relationship values. When I’m done with a hard day’s work, I want my boyfriend to make plans. I like it when he takes care of the things I don’t want to do. I love cooking and baking for him. I like bringing out my feminine softer side when I’m with him.

How do you stay “feminine” in your relationships?

Ladies, we’ve got to work on receiving! Receiving is feminine. If a man wants to carry your suitcase, say “yes, you can do that for me.” Even if you’re strong enough and capable enough to do it yourself, let him do things for you! It makes him feel good. And it’s good for your relationship.

Lena and I spoke about the importance of being a HIGH VALUE WOMAN, someone who knows and loves herself, speaks her truth and communicates her needs clearly without NAGGING. We touched on so many important issues related to how successful women can succeed in their romantic relationships. The key is there must be polarity for a relationship to succeed. If you both show up as competitive, having to prove you’re right, and bossing each other around, attraction will die and the relationship will unravel.

There is so much juicy content in this one-hour episode, I can’t do it justice here. Listen to the show to experience the dynamic straight-shooting brilliantly wonderful Lena West!
