A.W.E. Spotlight – True Corporate Chic

In an effort to always bring you the latest and greatest information, I am happy to present another installment of our Advisory of Women Entrepreneurs Spotlight interview series.

We designed this series to, not only showcase our community of amazing women entrepreneurs, but to also share their best tips, strategies and insights for wanna-be and established women entrepreneurs.  Our mission for this community is to bring an incredible group of women together to inspire, motivate, and support women in business by networking, collaborating, and, in the case of this spotlight series, showing you why they shine so brightly!

This week I am so pleased to share my interview with Tawana Necole, Founder of Corporate Chics, LLC.

In our interview, Tawana shares her biggest start-up challenges after being “released” from her full-time job, the motivation behind creating Sistergirl Tuesdays, why her best decision was to simply give up control, and what the 3 E’s are that make up her business philosophy. You are going to love this interview because Tawana’s spunky, “can-do” attitude is truly contagious! Enjoy!

    Tawana, you don’t have to be a woman to be inspired and gain a lot of insight from your video. Ten years ago, I too was layed-off from my corporate job after 14 years.

    To this day, I firmly believe it added 20 years to my lifetime! By accident, I landed in real estate and not a day has gone by that I haven’t looked forward to getting up and get going.

    The handcuffs are OFF. No longer does anyone decide…. how much money I will make; whether I want to take a day off; who I will hire or fire; spend extra time with the family, friends, or just myself.

    Being layed off has inspired you to start exploring your potential and finding out that you are limited only by your own beliefs. Congratulations!!
