What We Do
We’re on the forefront of women’s issues since our information comes directly from thought leaders and change makers. They share their wisdom via weekly radio show interviews and as blogging experts in the areas of business, health, happiness and wealth.
We share cutting edge research and messages via radio, website, social media, an online financial literacy course and our new Smart Women’s Kindle book series.
Who We Reach
Confidence is a leading factor holding women back; more than half worry about not having enough money to last through retirement.*
No matter how wealthy, attractive or accomplished she is, research shows the majority of women suffer from self-doubt.
With this in mind, we reach women across a broad spectrum of socioeconomic, ethnic and educational backgrounds. We work with any woman who wishes to silence her self-doubt in order to step into her full power. Consequently, we work with entrepreneurs who earn 7-figures and women in homeless shelters.
We have an international presence through Smart Women Talk Radio™, social media, international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and participants from around the globe who regularly engage in conversations and discussions.
