EWI’s First Spokeswoman
I am honored to be the first spokeswoman for Empowered Women International. Your community and purpose perfectly align with my mission to help more women start and build successful companies.
It is a firm belief, and personal experience of mine, that entrepreneurship is the best vehicle for happiness as a woman. As an entrepreneur a woman has control over her income, work hours, and time spent with family. It is very exciting to help build awareness of what EWI does to empower women in our community as well as highlight the amazing graduates and businesses that have come through the program.
At the age of 25 with a biology degree and zero business background, Danielle made her entrepreneurial journey of establishing a new niche market within the wedding industry with her name change service, MissNowMrs which has grown into a multimillion-dollar enterprise. Her experiences were both particularly challenging and fulfilling and what she noticed was that there were very few business guides that offered real-life step-by-step advice to brilliant but inexperienced women.
Her book, Elegant Entrepreneur: The Female Founders Guide to Starting & Growing Your First Company offers straight forward language that delivers the concepts, action steps, and tips that are relevant to both men and women interested in navigating entrepreneurship with no business background.
Book excerpt: “Be creative about your beginnings. You do not necessarily need office space or a fancy desk. The important thing is to identify the steps necessary to go from idea to income, and then take those steps methodically. Don’t be afraid to trade or barter for the things you need to succeed… You have to be scrappy and humble to self-fund a venture (unless you have a trust fund.)”
