Here at EmpowHer, we have a group of amazing women on our team working on all aspects of our web site. A few days before Christmas, the founder of our company, Michelle King Robson, pulled us all into the conference room and laid out beautiful silk bags of different colors. She instructed each of us to choose a color that we liked.
When we opened our bags, out spilled gorgeous lariats, made of shells and pearls. Michelle explained how each was created by a woman entrepreneur who is working hard to grow her business in a developing country. We all wrapped our lariats around our necks, feeling empowered by the positive energy that exuded from the beautiful handmade jewelry.
Soon, we started chatting about a recently proposed piece of legislation that would serve to prevent many American women from access to the health care and medications they need. As we decided on a course of action to prevent this from happening, the room became electric with energy. It was as if the woman entrepreneur from so far away had shared her spirit of courage and strength with us.
