The Wild Feather
Let's face it. Building a startup company takes dedication, hard work, resilience, tough skin, and grit. It can be a very lonely road. I know because I have been there. The Wild Feather is there to celebrate the small or big wins and to encourage you during tough times. It starts with a vision or a dream and we want to support and encourage you to help you achieve your dream.
By sharing the stories of other female founders and investors, we hope to inspire you and give valuable insight that may help you along your journey. Whether you are before the idea stage, in the trenches, or you have achieved your dream, we want to connect.
Hearing about the journeys of other founders and investors can spark new ideas, new resources, or new approaches. We get to learn and try amazing products too!
When I was building BOJ, a software, and mobile app startup, she faced many challenges that turned into priceless learning and personal growth. I felt defeated, lonely, exhausted, and financially doomed but I still believed in my WHY and MISSION so I kept fighting the fight. By the grace of God, I was invited to be part of an eight-month Masterclass with 11 other women founders. It was then that I realized that everyone faces similar challenges and I wasn't alone. Game Changer!
A lot of people offer their unsolicited or solicited opinions when you start going down the accelerator or funding path which can create a lot of noise and confusion for a founder. I stopped counting the number of times we changed our pitch deck and pitch.
Finding a support system that you can confide in to relate to, brainstorm, get ideas, be empathetic, be genuine, be honest, and be a friend who listens makes a transformational impact.
Make each day your masterpiece. – John Wooden
