Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service.
Women’s Party of America clothing line and soon-to-be books focused on real-life women who stood in the face of adversity. Me and My 1000 Girlfriends, That’s Who! works to help women as a collective. We try to pass on stories about companies uninterested in advancing women. Our role is to find their competitors that are women-owned businesses and tout their brands. Women make 85% of the purchasing decisions. Why aren’t we making ours sisters rich?

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
I was on a board for a botanical garden own by my local city. The board was mostly women. The city were all men who ignored our concerns. Finally, I decided to start an email campaign to the mayor and realized my sorority sisters and girlfriends jumped at the chanced to help. I thought about how women like to help, we just need to find a place to share stories where people need help.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
Women are more willing to help than ask. Right now, we are working to unmask businesses that ignore women in their ranks. We don’t ask them to include women, we just band together and get behind those that do value women.

What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
Communication and women are busy. Women also see both sides too easily. They need to realize the repercussions of being ignored.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.
Pushy.

How has Project Eve helped you and/or your business?
Project Eve shares information. Every one is free to choose. I like their mission.

Give us an insider tip that relates to your industry or startup story.
99% of women are kindhearted and wonderful. Only a few are evil and back-biting, but they seem like they represent the gender. We’re much better than people give us credit. And, women together will change the world.
