Like A Girl: Dare To Dream presents
Opportunity-Creator for Women Thought Leaders
Melissa Barker is the founder and CEO of Women Entrepreneurs Inc. and The Show and Tell Co., a content company. After leading marketing strategies for some of the world's most valuable brands, Melissa decided to start her own business. Clients came quickly, but she soon realized she was overwhelmed with learning the ins and outs of running a business. Melissa needed targeted information, and she needed it fast. There was no time to wade through mountains of business books or hours of webinars.
Melissa was also learning that women face unique challenges as entrepreneurs. They're starting businesses at twice the rate of men; they want and need more freedom and flexibility, but are too frequently wholly consumed by the minutia of running a business. Melissa had the idea to create Women Entrepreneurs Inc., an organization where women could barter their knowledge to help each other grow their businesses.
Today, Women Entrepreneurs Inc. is a community of women who function as each other's unpaid consultants, turning to each other to get the information and skills they need quickly.
