She Means Business: women’s day crush

Women’s day was not going to be women’s day for me if I didn’t share a post specially dedicated to women. Around this time last year, I went to a women only conference and the hashtag was #SHEMEANSBUSINESS, by that you understand strong unapologetic women who mean business, who fight for what they want, who create a table and invite other women, women who uplift each other and don’t apologize for their success because they have worked hard to be where they are. That is why the perfect tittle for this post was obviously going to be SHE MEANS BUSINESS.

For the past few weeks, I discovered amazing, strong and talented women who mean business and this entire post is dedicated to them. Here are the 7+ phenomenal women who mean business we are crushing on this month.

“My Business was inspired by our Creator.Worked as National Key Account & Sales & Marketing Manager for the past 17 years.I was out of work for nine months, God made me wait to get closer to Him. He inspired me to build Bomas. Goodies for Gardens gave me the opportunity to build a showcase boma. I found my Foreman at the time fixing a house up the road. I then got a call from Goodies to say they have a very potential client looking for a Boma and the rest is history. God has blessed me in abundance.” Vanessa Rohregger
