What The Lab can do for you.

Thai-Anh Hoang is the founder of a clean skincare line for kids, called Embeba. She regularly attends the Thursday morning peer mentoring calls at the Women’s Leadership Lab.

Eager to build awareness for her brand, she asked if anyone had a connection to Motherly. Motherly was a publication she read when she was pregnant. How cool would it be for her kids skincare line to be featured in it?

As part of our programming, we interview experts each week. We interviewed the co-founder of Motherly Liz Tenety June 7, 2019. She and I were both former journalists.   I connected Thai-Anh to her. 
This year,  Thai-Anh was published in a Motherly article titled ” 5 Mama-Innovated Products that are Total Game changers.”  
These are the kinds of introductions that can be made if you become a member of the Women’s Leadership Academy.

Sanketa attended her first LadyDrinks event in May 2019.  I was hosting a charity fundraiser in Plainfield, New Jersey. It was a show house, featuring the work of several members who were interior designers.  Proceeds for ticket sales were going to the Valerie Fund. 

Sanketa had cancer as a teenager.  The Valerie Fund not only saved her life, but it provided the funds for her treatment. She saw the event as a means to reconnect with the Fund.  

At the event, Sanketa told her story. Today, she makes her living as a personal chef. While her current client base for Eat Krave Love was friends and family, she wanted to get in front of a new audience, and a new client base.   She started catering events for LadyDrinks. Others in the membership started hiring her too. She got new headshots done. She started to build a brand.

Sanketa’s client base grew. She reached newer audiences.  Her biggest takeaway was— learning to bet on herself.
