On average, female founders have been proven to generate the greatest amount of revenue. In fact, our friends at First Round Capital found that companies with a female founder performed more than 60% better than companies composed only of men.

Employees First. As the firms grew, I realized that I cannot be everywhere at once. I needed to hire and develop a team of people who will take care of clients the same way I would.

Give yourself more credit than you want to. Trying anything is usually a decent option. I’m often inherently aware of everything I don’t know, but startup life is not about doing anything perfectly, it is about inching along and making consistent progress.

Women leaders tend to be more inclusive and community-driven. The women founders I know all operate from a heart-centered place, meaning they want to be successful as much for their employees as they want to be for themselves, and they care about giving back. I started Teneral Cellars to not only to give back to charities that empower women but to also create opportunities for women in the wine industry and to provide jobs and careers to women of color who have been historically underrepresented in the wine industry.

They are exceptional at their crafts and believe in themselves. They both started right before COVID, so of course, they have some lows like most of us do, but they continue to plan and pivot and do what they can with the cards they are dealt.
