Who is a Founder?

She’s the woman that decided if no one else was going to solve the problem, she will.

She’s a mom, juggling daycare pickups, snack duty and a heaping pile of laundry with growing a profitable business.

She’s single and laughs at the idea of a personal life in her current phase of her startup. 

She’s the oldest person in the room. 

She’s the youngest person in the room.

She’s balancing imposter syndrome better on some days than others.

She worked in corporate for a long time.

She never worked for a company with more than 10 people.

She’s sacrificing sleep and not remembering the last time she had some quiet.

She’s grateful, determined, curious.

She’s frustrated, wavering and contemplating a backup plan.

Her customer base is in a 50 mile radius.

Her customer base is global.

She dreads networking, but shows up anyway.

She loves networking, but skips the event to fix a product glitch.

She’s getting up the guts to make a big ask.

She’s harder on herself than her customers, team or investors.

She’s smart, she’s realistic and she’s building a business that matters.

Some days, she wonders what the hell she’s doing. 

Some days, she moves mountains so big she knows it’s working.

She’s the woman that decided if no one else was going to solve the problem, she will.
