Why the need for WE
I have done it the hard and lonely way, got fed up with it, and decided to make a change.
I remember hovering above the “Create Group” button, because I had called it “Women Entrepreneurs” and I… honestly didn’t feel like one… even eight months after making the biggest decision of my life.
That big decision, deciding to buy my daughter’s daycare center, is what started it all. The decision, as I was holding her, to live my dreams so I could feel confident in telling my child to live her dreams.
Having a daughter changed everything for me. Everything.
Before her, I wanted to be one of the guys. I wanted to blend in, and forget the fact that there were things only MY body could do, and things that were only going to affect ME, as a woman.
Before having my daughter, I would have bristled at the thought of being considered a feminist. Now – I want more than anything for the world to be better for my daughter.
From owning a daycare center, to starting WE in BCS, my heart, for the past five years has been with women, and more importantly, with women entrepreneurs who have felt pushed out of the workforce… for simply being women.
Whether you have felt excluded from the workforce after having children, or have simply always wanted to work for yourself, this is the place for you. This is where you belong.
I don’t want you to go through every mishap and hurdle I went. From paying thousands for accounting mistakes to just getting basic things done in the 5th year of business, I want you to learn from me, from WE, and be better than those before you.
Your journey into entrepreneurship doesn’t have to be as hard as mine was. It doesn’t have to be as lonely. I want you to succeed and “enjoy” the entrepreneurship journey from the start – that’s why WE exists.
While WE aims to provide baseline mentorship to get your business started or growing, what you’ll get from joining WE is deep friendships with people that are “crazy” like you, “ambitious” like you, “idea people” just like you. So you don’t have to do it alone. You don’t have to live in your head.
You can start building DEEP friendship within WE from day one. You can meet your future best friend at a local event. You can feel like you belong when your entire network is busy working 8-5 to meet their current employer’s needs.
If you don’t have a network of girlfriends in entrepreneurship, WE is for you.
I’m not saying your struggles will end. I’m saying you don’t have to struggle alone anymore. And I’m pretty sure what WE has to offer will help build your business beyond what you thought was imaginable.
