In 2013 me and my business partner started a grassroots movement called Wealthy Sisters Network. To me a grassroots movement is something that is started from NOTHING. Because this organization teaches women to be wealthy in Mind, Body, and Spirit and to build generational wealth there were not many if any at all existing templates for our organization. Truly grassroots.
We learned quickly that women were STARVED for the type of education that allowed them to not only learn more about how to create wealth but to make the mindset shifts around supporting each other and how that related to their own abundance that is REQUIRED in order to build true wealth. Women were starved for tips on how to put themselves first while still balancing jobs and family. Or to at least carve out a piece of life for themselves, even IF everything else still came first.
One of the lessons we learned quickly was that not EVERYONE is cut out to be a leader. Initially we allowed geographical presidents based simply on interest but found some presidents who did not posess the leadership skills could not consistently execute the vision.
We are also still learning how to position the vision to others so that women everywhere see the importance of WORKING together to change the face of women in poverty.
I am looking to world pulse to help build partnerships internationally for International Day of Sisterhood 12/12/2015! I am looking to spread the word about that day as we gather world leaders to discuss economic empowerment for women in a virtual format with a call to action to ALL women in attendance to support other women owned business, community initiatives and health initiatives. We all have to do our part.
While I am new to World Pulse other online connections have served to expand the voice of women's economic internationally. I look forward to hearing from MORE women who would like to champion this cause in their community.
Currently Wealthy Sisters Network has 30+ geographical chapters all over the US in addition to a national Senior Sisters Chapter, a national Teen Chapter, and a National Non-profit Chapter. WSN is looking to expand in the United Kingdom and Australia. #eachone #teachone
