Welcome to our blog, “She’s Getting Started”

Mindset & Milestones
May 5, 2020

Our new blog, She’s Getting Started, will share inspiring entrepreneurial stories and information with young women, parents, and teachers.

Thanks for coming to check it out!

At Mindset & Milestones, our mission is to prepare girls to succeed

At Mindset & Milestones, our mission is to prepare girls to succeed in the world as it stands, while helping girls develop the skills to create a world that’s more equitable for us all. We use entrepreneurship to achieve that mission through our workbook, Mindset & Milestones: A Girl’s Guide to Thinking Like an Entrepreneur.

But we realized there was also a need for more stories and information that speaks to young women. So, we decided that we would create this blog to fill that void!

How this blog will support, and inspire, young women to continue doing great things

This blog will feature a new female entrepreneur every week. These young women will range from high school and college students getting started, to seasoned entrepreneurs already making their mark on the world.

If you are an entrepreneur, or know one who you’d like to be featured, submit it here!

Our features can be about a for-profit business, non-profit initiative, or even a movement! Entrepreneurship includes all types of enterprises, so share your story with us! We are so excited to shed light on female entrepreneurs to show young women everywhere that you don’t have to have all the answers, you just have to start.

We will also be releasing content that is helpful for anyone new to starting a business, providing great resources to serve young women aspiring to do great things!

If you have any suggestions about topics you’d like us to write about, submit them here. And if you have a resource to share, submit it here! Our goal is to be helpful, as well as inspirational, so let us know how we can be helpful to YOU. We want to share information about things you want to know!

Helpful online resources to get you started

Our first female founder feature will be posted this Friday (5/8/20). In the meantime, here’s some helpful content to get you started.
