You know what they say, “Behind every successful woman is a tribe of successful women who have her back”, so I wanted to take a moment to recognize the ladies who have helped me stay motivated and focused on my entrepreneurial endeavors (and in life) these past few years.

It all began as a Mastermind group of friends with a shared passion for entrepreneurship and making a positive impact in people’s lives as facilitated by Maile Barcelon. This evolved into a support system of women entrepreneurs who have joined forces to encourage and empower each other to stay on the path of entrepreneurial success. Because, as we all know, the struggle of entrepreneurship is real.

You already know about me (a.k.a. “The Adventure Storyteller”), so this post is dedicated to these important women in my life, my sister-friends, the other ladies which make up SheForce:
