Ever thought about launching your own business? Maybe you’re already into the early stages of your start-up. Or you’re rounding the corner on the first stage of growth and facing new challenges with your company.
In today’s competitive business world, aspiring female entrepreneurs face unique challenges on the path to success. From breaking through glass ceilings to overcoming self-doubt, trailblazers like you deserve support in achieving your dreams of financial independence.
Luckily, there is someone who not only personally knows the difficulties faced on this journey, but she’s willing to help you conquer them.
Meet Cindy Monroe, a compelling podcast host, bestselling author, and leadership mentor who’s made it her mission to provide women entrepreneurs with the inspiration you need to reach your goals.
Named one of the “Most Influential Women in Direct Selling,” Monroe has helped countless women succeed in the business world through her mission-driven company, Thirty-One Gifts—which has been one of North America’s top multimillion-dollar direct sales companies.
Monroe started this venture from her home in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to empower women by providing them with opportunities to build their own businesses, with the flexibility to balance life at both work and home.
Her best-selling book, “More Than a Bag,” is an extension of that mission. It’s a story of courage, hope, and determination.
In her book, Monroe candidly shares her journey of growing Thirty-One as a woman-owned business. She opens up about the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and provides insight into the importance of building relationships with others while overcoming fear.
She helps you, as the reader, understand that success often requires risk-taking, a leap of faith, and a strong sense of self-belief that can be hard to come by.
Drawing upon her extensive business experience, Monroe motivates you to strive for your unique vision of professional success, personal fulfillment, and financial security.
Some of the key takeaways from the book are:
- Take risks and embrace change
- Learn from failures and use them as opportunities to grow
- Build genuine relationships, and don’t hesitate to ask for help
- Determine what matters most and stick to it
- Aim for balance, and don’t be afraid to take some time for yourself
- Lean into your potential and never underestimate yourself
Monroe has benefited from mentors throughout her journey as CEO and Executive Chairwoman of Thirty-One, and she has decided to pay it forward.
As she puts it, “You deserve your own version of financial success. You’re worth it – and you deserve to have it.”
In addition to her book, Monroe hosts a powerful podcast called “Permission to Lead,” where she shares her transformative experiences and interviews accomplished CEOs and professionals, all to help female entrepreneurs and professionals gain the confidence and skills necessary for success.
Recently, in one of her podcasts with famous author and financial expert Kimberlee Davis, Monroe discussed the financial confidence of women.
“According to a report, 85% of women manage their household’s everyday expenses, but only 23% take the lead in long-term financial planning,” shared Davis. The experts dove deeper into why so many women are afraid of managing money and how to create a budget that allows you to live your desired lifestyle. Listen to the complete podcast here.
From her book “More Than a Bag” to her podcast “Permission to Lead,” Cindy Monroe inspires aspiring entrepreneurs to reach their goals and achieve financial success. She wants you to believe in the power you have to make a difference with your unique talents, giving yourself permission to dream, to take risks, and to lead.
