Being a young girl totally obsessed with the Spice Girls and throwing up the peace sign shouting “Girl Power!”, we really didn’t know the true meaning of it until experiencing all of the challenges that came with being a woman. Now as an adult, the motto hasn’t changed, rather, it just carries a deeper meaning. As a female founded company, it is so refreshing to see how much growth there is in the world with women being able to have the freedom to chase their dreams and beliefs; however, we still face a lot of challenges and barriers, especially when it comes to funding and support. Although being a woman feels great every day, today just always feels more special because the journey to get where we have gotten was not easy at all and still is an uphill climb, but celebrating the struggles, and wins makes you feel really proud.
As women, we have the power to shape and transform our communities through our purchasing power and also through the leadership and employment opportunities we offer as business owners. Women are more likely to reinvest in families and communities as well, which would overall change the world for the better. It is very important that women stick together and support one another instead of tearing each other down, since we’re in a minority, we are stronger and more powerful if we’re in it to win together!
In general, we would just like to celebrate all the women that came before us and those that will come after us, and also all of the women AND men who have believed in girl power and supported the movement and helped us grow our brand.
