Several years ago, I bought the domain shelaunched.com. After a lot of thinking, I came up with an idea for it: Create a curated email newsletter for women entrepreneurs.
A few close friends said, “Hmmm. It just might work!”
So with their support, I decided to kick some email startup ass.
I tossed my hair…
…and drank a glass bottle of vino.
I turned to my sister for advice (thanks, char). She gave me a few side eyes and told me: “Girl, just do it.”
So, I decided to create shelaunched and enjoy the journey, even if no one pays attention.
I put up a launch page. I watched website visitors come and go. Toyed around with the SEO a little and started a Tumblr page to increase subscribers.
And then, I got my first subscriber. And another. And another. Woo!
A special thank you to my incredible fiance who rocks with me, even though he has no idea what I do at the computer all day.
And a really HUGE thank you (virtual flowers picked especially for you) to the women entrepreneurs who signed up. I’m really excited to start sharing with you. Let’s see where this journey takes us!
Now it’s back to work. I’m on the hunt for tips, ideas, apps and more that will help women entrepreneurs thrive. (See that basket? it’s for collecting all the good stuff I’m going to deliver to your inbox, so sign up. ok?)
