Our goal is to make it possible for all women to find greater business opportunities, inspiration, and promote and sell products from their women-owned businesses. By joining a community of likeminded women, you too can start elevating your future. It all starts here!

It has taken a long time for me to figure out what I am meant to do. I too have experienced the world of following your career path, starting multiple businesses, and jumping on any opportunity that is thrown at you. I know the amount dedication you have put into planning your career, future, and helping your business succeed. In the year 2017 as a freshman in college, I started a coffee shop with my two male business partners in Oregon. We had no prior business experience and at the same time I was working toward continuing my degree in Graphic Design through Arizona State University. I was a full-time student and business owner by the age of nineteen.

In 2020 when covid first began and the business struggled, I started to slowly realize that my voice never mattered. When it came to large and small decisions, my opinions were overlooked. In October of 2021, I made the difficult decision to walk away from the business and become a graphic designer for a high-end jewelry company while still working towards my degree. After a couple months of working, my male boss treated me disrespectfully and handled situations poorly. With both of these situations, my opinions and voice didn’t matter and as a woman I felt powerless.   

In late 2021, I became a graphic designer and executive assistant for a real estate agent in San Fransisco named Marina Shiferman. She is the founder of the Real Estate Queen Academy where she teaches women how to buy and own real estate and she was looking to grow her program and reach more women. I started to realize that all of my experiences and opportunities were leading me to something that would impact women everywhere.

After owning multiple businesses and searching and applying for jobs, I was inspired to create a platform that help women succeed in different areas and professions in their life. Feminlist was created to give all women, in body and at heart, the ability to find greater opportunity. By joining a community of likeminded women you can promote your business by selling your products, shopping from women-owned businesses, sell courses and materials, and elevate the future of your business. 

At the time, my experiences made me feel out of place and they destroyed my self-confidence. But now, I have realized that the purpose of those experiences were to prepare me for something greater that could impact the lives of all women.
