“I’d like to talk about my journey on daring to start my own business while involving some of the key factors from my interviews with 100+ women.This is important to hear for many women because they end up not doing it…because they are too scared to go after what they want and they don’t know-how.

“I get weekly messages from women who have now dared to reach and work towards their goals and also manage to achieve them! This is the value I can bring to the table.”My message: Dare to lean in, being afraid is normal. After interviewing almost 100 successful women I can assure you this is the case.
