I imagine a world where women come together to grow their businesses. A world in which we learn and exchange knowledge for the greater good – where we collaborate and build the best versions of ourselves and our businesses.
I’ve been dreaming about bringing people together for a long time because I’ve learned that when we come together and collaborate, we are stronger and more productive. When we expand the pie, we all have more.
In part, these are the reasons I founded Leadership Girl. I saw a very real need for support, resources, collaboration, education, and funding for small woman-owned businesses. Because we have different needs, goals and desires for our businesses.
I know that it is possible to leverage our strengths together to really grow our businesses.
Building a business can be a lonely exercise. People who don’t have their own business don’t understand the exhilaration of making a sale, gaining a customer, and also the desolation of losing one. They don’t understand that the world is an incredibly noisy place with people telling you that you must do one thing to be successful, that you have to follow exactly this path, and only then will you be successful beyond your wildest dreams. So you have to weed through the noise to determine who is being truthful and who is selling you a bill of goods.
That is why I created Leadership Girl – to give business owners, like you, solid, no-nonsense information – because I believe in straight shooting. That’s just who I am.
(Ask me about the time I went skeet shooting as a teenager and one of the men, after I soundly beat him, asked me, “don’t you have a tea party you need to go to?”)
I once sat in a room full of men and wondered where the women were. Why weren’t they getting the education, why weren’t they getting the promotions, where were their businesses? So many why’s and not enough answers.
I decided to do something about it, and me being me, I don’t do anything by half measures. I decided that it would be an awesome time to start a business. So I got my url, started my blog, and opened up my business.
Fast forward a few years, and I’m starting to take the next, big, audacious steps. This year, in September, I’m running my first live business Summit, and I want you to come. I want you to show up, to network, to meet other serious powerhouses in business, and learn more about business. I want you to walk away with some new collaborations and ideas that you can implement in your business now to make it super successful.
That’s exactly why I’m here… to help you become successful, to be the catalyst and change agent, and to provide the resources you need for your business.
Let’s do it together! Let’s change the world one woman at a time, because that’s the only way that real, concerted change has ever been made. By starting a movement with a goal.
In this case, the goal is to help us build the businesses and lives of our dreams, so that we can pay for preschool, dance lessons, or a trip to Disney World for our littlest princesses. (Or Karate tournaments for our warrior princesses.)
