Watch These 13 She’preneurs in 2017

When magic happens to you… you stand there …awestruck, happy and satisfied!!!

The year 2016 has been special to me in terms of professional achievements, personal life, family, and peace. And out of all the goodness that this year gave me, being a part of the TV show called BRAND IT is my most favorite memory.In fact, it is not just a memory for me. It is much more than that! It is about meeting my counter souls- knowing women who have a similar passion for their lives as I have. It is about knowing how fantastic the word ‘She’preneur’ is and how it completes a woman in its own way. It is about visiting New York once again to revive all the old gold memories of life. It is about earning the place to stand next to the most watchful 13 She’preneurs in 2017 and yes BEING ONE OF THEM! Whaaoo!!!

Meeting some of the finest women entrepreneurs, knowing their story of achievement and failure and learning the ultimate lessons of life is a wonderful feeling. Thank you BRAND IT for giving me the opportunity of knowing some of the most influential She’preneurs around the world. BRAND IT is a TV show run by the Bon Bon Networks in the City of New York. The TV show was a brain child of Rhonda Swan and Bonnie Bruderer, two enthusiastic and heartfelt She’preneurs with a vision for a handful of women willing to step out of their comfort zones. 

I remember I asked Bonnie what she gained from this incredible experience. With her usual enthusiasm and love of life Bonnie shares:

“This past August I was part of an incredible, world-class event called Media and The City and the filming of the BRAND IT television series. I had the incredible honor of being surrounded by 14 entrepreneurs for an entire week. This included my partner and Co-Producer Rhonda Swan and 13 entrepreneurs from all over the world.

Now, the one thing I noticed is that we were all the same. Let me explain, not physically, not geographically, and not even that we were in the same line of work. The one common thread was the drive to support others in creating success.

As one of the producers, I have spent close to 50 hours now, with the footage of this event. Each interview is more impressive then the next, as these women pour out their hearts and souls of what went into building their business. But what most people don’t get to see is what went on behind that. The entire event was filmed and photographed and I have never seen such palpable support. The looks from the other in the group when one is speaking, the encouraging smiles, the hugs, the tears.

I believe that each and everyone one of us knows what it takes to create success as a female entrepreneur and during this week, you could literally see and feel that common thread that ties us all together, no matter where you are from”.

Rhonda, Bonnie, Livia, Patty, Di , Leysa, Jodi, Erica, Inge, Christine and Liliana.

Of course Rhonda had her own experience being the co-producer of the Brand-it Show. Rhondas inspiration, love of seeing people grow along with her online experience shows us who she is from her personal insight:

I’ve been so madly lucky to have several incredible women who have mentored me in my early years, they taught me never to be afraid to share my ideas, and when it comes to brainstorms and big ideas, to be fearless. I was gently nurtured to speak out which was critical to my success, and I will be forever grateful. I bring this fearless attitude to all my business endeavors especially while we filmed BRAND IT.

Working with this divas group of women during the Media and the City Event and filming BRAND IT was powerful, when I see women doing incredible things around me; I’m inspired to do the same. Having a critical mass of women is crucial for peer mentoring, sanity checks, and solidarity. I believe when women believe in each other, and support each other, they can change the world.” 

Rhonda, Patty, Di, Christine, Bonnie, Leysa, Inge, Erica, Liliana

The thought of presenting your She’preneur ideas with the wider world out there was always overwhelming and as I said, I enjoyed every bit of the experience.But what really struck me in the BRAND IT show was the fact that all of these women know and demonstrated the significance of ‘collaboration’. Collaboration is the key to change that when we share what we know only then change happens in the world. Our planet needs it… we all needs it!

I knew Patty would have a unique way in answering the question of  “what is a She’preneur to you?’ “A new way of being, a new way of being with your body and a new way of being in the world”! Patty created her Pole Dancing for Consciousness program while shifted herself from who she thought she was to who she is now, consciously! “What do you want to eat” What does your body want to wear” are some of the questions Patty asks. “How does it get better than this” is a great question Patty asks to give profound shifts for men and women’s lives”.

  1. Liliana Aguirre

Like I said in my video, all these women are authentic, they are real. Liliana is no exception. Plus, I love her accent. Don’t you just love accents? I asked Liliana what a She’preneur is to her, she described herself of course, she is spot on!In my opinion, a She’preneur is an independent and driven woman who believes in herself, someone who exercises initiative and who is ready to make a difference and a positive contribution in the world. A She’preneur is a business leader, an innovator and a decision maker who is able to successfully execute ideas and projects in the business world”.

She is not afraid to think for herself and voice her opinion. She is there to make a difference to the world, genuine and keeps to her word.

I have spent time, real time, with Inge, her husband and their two gorgeous kids. When you sit around the breakfast table a few times together, visit each other at home there is not much that gets missed. Inga, her husband and their kids are real and they are putting into practice what they are learning about food, nutrition and living…like really living. Just to listen to Inge’s passionate personal story you will know that she the type of person who walks her talk. I think is a typical down to earth “Inge” comment: “It’s about finding out what is good for you, a process of trial and error”.

She is much more than your thoughts and even more than where the thought ends. This is the power of being a woman… a She’preneur… Women Entrepreneur!

    1. Keelie,

      I know many of us would of been stuck at airports, without photos, maybe in a lift or two if it was not for you and your detailed and caring thinking

      Thankyou Keelie and thank you for taking the time to come here and comment


  1. What an inspiring post…. Especially around this time of year, when we start the process of looking back at 2016, doing some sprints before the year ends and unconsiously start the process of setting intentions for 2017. This post has so much inspirational information and gives acces to so much knowledge that it will enable women to get into action mode and consiously contemplate on their purpose, how to realize it and what to do to get it. Di Downie your investment in this post is a great contribution to all women out there!

    1. Hello Inge,

      To review our past years, as you say Inge, is best to start way before the end of the year. This gives us time to not only reflect but also to make some course changes for the next year.

      I trust this post does inspire other people to take action and share what they know from what matters to them

      Inge thank you for your time


    1. Hello Carol,
