For as long as I can remember, I have always thrived on the feeling of being a part of something—creating something where I saw there was a need.
I have history. In the 6th grade, I was disappointed that there was no school newsletter. I saw a need for the students to have a voice, so I started one myself.
In high school, everyone had pagers (and no, Ma, we weren’t drug dealers). So what did I do? I became a re-seller. Boom! I was an instant entrepreneur. I sold the equipment and service to my friends cheaper than the larger companies. Yes, I made some money, but most importantly, it made me feel alive!
As a teen, what did I spend my money on? No, not makeup. I spent it all on dining out. I was a “foodie” before I even knew what a foodie was and obsessed with DC food critics. It was a dream of mine to become one.
In 2007, I started a food blog, Dining in DC (the original blog the .net site is offline). It was my passion, for years. I ate (duh) and breathed the DC food scene. I loved being a part of the blogger community.
A few years later, I joined forces with three other bloggers to form a media/marketing company, 4Bitten Media (and we made good money) and became life-long friends.
After 8+ long years, (and 15 lbs heavier) I sold my blog and decided it was time for a new adventure. Little did I know that my true passion is being an entrepreneur and creating community!
I created the DCfempreneur community for all of those women out there who truly want to life the live of their dreams and turn their passion into profit!”
See a little bit of a resemblance, eh? Yeah, it’s because it comes from a very authentic place … my heart.
The DCfempreneur community could very well be my life’s purpose and I absolutely couldn’t be more excited to share my passion with you. If you haven’t already, sign up for the Meetup group and join us for our launch event on Sunday, February 3!
