Hello Fearless: My friend Sara’s new company for female entrepreneurs, and an interview with me!
August 20th, 2014
Several years ago (probably around the time of the first Big Omaha conference) I met Sara Davidson through the Silicon Prairie startup community, and as two creative (and outspoken) women in the community we became fast friends. I remember one time in particular when I was going through my divorce, I was at a party for founders having a really hard time. When you’re in the midst of a personal crisis, getting asked “So how’s everything?” or “So it looks like you’re doing well!” or “What’s new?” can just start to pile on. Every “I’m okay!” or “Not much!” felt like another weight around my neck and it got to the point where I was just SO looking Not Okay. Sara was the person who noticed, and she pulled me aside and gave me an unforgettable pep talk. It felt so good to be reminded that I’m working in a community that isn’t only supportive when things are good, when we’re crushing it, whatever–that we can also be open and honest about our struggles when the chips are down.
Right now for Sara, the chips are definitely up!! I wanted to share her new company, Hello Fearless, with my readers and encourage all of you to support Sara and her team by checking it out. Hello Fearless is the school for female entrepreneurs and helps women start, grow, and scale their companies as well as offer inspiration for personal development. I LOVE their website and all of the fantastic videos, interviews, and posts–it’s so fun to browse. I look forward to checking out their e-courses, too.
I’m super honored to be featured today in their #Fearlessfounder interview series! You can watch a video interview with me about how I grew the Princess Lasertron and Hello Holiday brands, how I use social media in my business, and what my biggest challenges are in my personal life and career. I love that they used this picture with my little bear Alice, too!
Sara’s vision of encouraging women to START and broadcast each other’s successes is what drives me personally every day. I am so inspired by her work and I will be watching Hello Fearless! You should too.
