Why Men Are Important To Female Entrepreneurship

Written by chicceo Published in
I get asked a lot why I chose to focus on women when starting Chic CEO. Why would I ignore the other half? Don't guys need this information too? I've even been called sexist by men who think my business is an offense to their gender. 
The truth is, I love men. I chose to focus on women because I saw a market that wasn't being served. Smart, amazing women who were looking for a resource that gave them the clear, how-to information they wanted. But from the very beginning, men have served a very important role in the growth of Chic CEO - and without them, we wouldn't be doing the work we do.
Having support from my father and brother all the way to my lead advisor, Dr. Jim Hamerly - men have championed female entrepreneurship throughout my entire journey and it's been a beautiful part of Chic CEO's evolution. 
I have invited a good friend and Brain Trust member, Brandon Hawk, founder of YOU Training to join me in a discussion on why "Men Are So Important To Female Entrepreneurship." Join me Wednesday, May 28th at 5pm PDT/ 8pm EDT to listen in as we chat about why men really matter in our journey to being better entrepreneurs.
