Dreamed up in 2013. launched in 2014. reimagined in 2018.
Porsha Thomas here, founder and multiple hat-wearer at #gowrkgrls. Thanks for stopping by to let me ramble about our origins and virtually flip through our baby pictures with me!
And so the story goes, after weathering my first big business lady fail at 27 (you can hear about it here), I was like, "I HAVE to create a community of women entrepreneurs invested in supporting each other’s success. Nobody should have to do this shit alone. 😐" So in 2013, I decided to call this thing Ladypreneur League.
By 2014, we were interviewing women entrepreneurs on our blog about what their daily rituals were and how they handled 'business-lady-breakdowns,' as well as passing along "how to 'entrepreneur'" advice from lady contributors who were about that life.
In 2015, we took the community offline with the introduction of in-person workshops and events focused on business skill development and promoting ladypreneur camaraderie.
This year, we've switched things up! We've matured a little bit, our name has changed, but our goals remain the same. Come along to hear from ladies like you on #gowrkgrls radio, list your services on our mobile app (coming soon!) and to keep on building this badass community.
