We’ve come a long way as women, yes, yet we still have a ways to go. Only 4% of women-owned businesses generate over $1MM in revenue per year.
Our mission at The Big Whisper is to share learnings, strategy tools and resources, and make connections to inspire, support and help the rising generation of female entrepreneurs build thriving businesses.
WHAT WE'RE SOLVING FOR
I created The Big Whisper because I didn’t see a media outlet out there that covered topics that resonated with me in a deeper, more substantive way as both an entrepreneur and as someone who seeks an overall fulfilled life.
I was also really frustrated by the pervasive dialogue in media about the Unicorn business, this idea that in order to thrive as a business you have be an “overnight” success, you have to have 10x overnight growth, you have to be disrupting something, you have to be VC backed, you have to have and know your path to exit.
HOW WE'RE SOLVING THE PROBLEM
WE'RE USING MEDIA TO CHANGE THE CONVERSATION AROUND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Too much entrepreneur-oriented media focuses on the “overnight success” stories, on the idea of being a Unicorn.
There aren’t enough stories about the builders of today who are changing things for tomorrow. By the time we read those stories they’re positioned as “overnight successes” yet those folks have been putting blood, sweat and tears in for at least 10 years+, usually, at minimum.
We invest in uncovering and sharing the stories of emerging women entrepreneurs and giving them a platform. We focus on the builders--who are usually not out seeking marketing attention because they are so busy building products and businesses that work. These builders are the ones with real in-the-trenches wisdom to share and help the rising generation of women entrepreneurs. Media generally hasn’t viewed these stories sexy but we find them SEXY AF.
WE'RE GIVING BACK AND CREATING A NEW SYSTEM AS WE WORK TO FIX THE CURRENT SYSTEM
A portion of all profit proceeds of The Big Whisper goes to Women’s Campaign International a non-profit that leads after-school programs for underserved teenage girls in the US and around the world. Their workshops focus on confidence building, mentorship and leadership skills training in order to help girls overcome personal and societal obstacles to become leaders and agents of change in their communities and our future.
WE ARE ABLE TO STICK TO OUR MISSION BY RELYING ON MULTIPLE SOURCES OF REVENUE
We are part media, part community, part consultancy, part commerce.
