My Inspirational Women and Why We Need to Empower One Another

Posted: 07/10/2013 17:39

Elizabeth Hammond was an entrepreneur but she was also in the sector of coaching and what she really helped me to understand was, because I was almost a self-appointed CEO, there were areas which I was not very confident at all. I had massive belief in the MyWardrobe brand and had massive belief in the team, but actually as the team started to grow I started to have less confidence in myself.

Being a CEO, and I'm not sure if this is just purely being a female CEO, there are times when it's really quite lonely so having Elizabeth there as a support she really became a friend. And probably the one person I was really able to confide in and it was her opinion that I really valued.

Something I've been really passionate about is the next up-and-coming generation of female entrepreneurs, and I truly believe that it's about empowerment. It's about confidence and self-belief. My favourite quote of all time was from Madeleine Albright, she said "there should be a special place in hell for women who don't help one another" and that's something I truly believe in. I work really hard to support in any way I can, and it's about empowering. And the younger you can empower a woman the more confident she'll be when she goes into business.
