Have you ever wondered how women really compare to men, when it comes to running a successful business? On today's show, Alex talks about how women in business tend to be under-valued, yet over over-perform. She quotes Mr. Wonderful, Kevin O'Leary from Shark Tank, who substantiates this. She gives statistics to demonstrate how more and more women, across the social spectrum in the USA, own businesses today and how this number has dramatically increased since 2007. Alex points out that when women make more money, they're more in control of their lives, health, and choices and due to this, everyone around them benefits.
The guest on today's show is a great example of this. She is Ariel Hyatt, who as a 24-year-old entrepreneur twenty years ago, founded Cyber PR. About ten years ago, Ariel, a seasoned speaker who promotes music groups and bands, as well as advising clients on crowd funding campaigns, decided to put her money where her mouth is and crowd fund a campaign of her own. She wrote a book that documents the lessons learned and the stress endured during her campaign, which raised over $60 000. Ariel's book, Crowd Start, is a step by step and a day by day guide on how to launch a crowd funding campaign. Perhaps you too, through crowd funding, could build something beautiful and put money together that could help you, your family and your whole community.
