I am so excited to be part of this amazing community. I am the CEO & Founder of Xtraordinary Women.
Xtraordinary Women was founded in 2007 and is a platform that Leads, Inspires, Supports and Recognizes Women Entrepreneurs of South Africa. It takes a community to build a business, and Xtraordinary Women is that community. We are passionate about helping women entrepreneurs and encouraging them to DREAM BIG and to live their life with purpose!
We are dedicated to supporting you on every aspect of your journey and provide a platform for these stories to be told. Be it through our online networking events, where we showcase the best Guest Speakers our county has to offer, or our Success in High Heels Cocktail Evenings, where our Guest Speakers share their success stories.
At Xtraordinary Women, we support the South African economy by building a community of confident and successful women in business who actively engage and contribute to their community’s growth and development.
When I started my journey as an entrepreneur I found it very difficult to navigate the waters of entrepreneurship. It was through truly connecting with others and hosting my first event that I found the power of stories. Each and every woman that I have come across has a powerful story to share that inspires others.
Although the platform has been going for many years, and there are many blog posts on our website (which are mainly from our Members), I have personally been struggling to get into blogging. I often feel that I have no value to add and struggle to find topics to write about. I also have a fear of putting myself out there, and have therefore, been happy supporting others and sharing their content.
It is time to get over those fears and to start blogging more and share my own vulnerabilities, as I believe the only way to work through your fears, is to JUST DO IT!
It is an honor to be part of this community and I look forward to supporting, engaging and connecting with you.
