Here’s what women who have already experienced The JunipHER Project are saying about the program
The JunipHER program has challenged me to focus on solutions that will allow my company to grow. I appreciate the 1 year length of the program which has allowed me to incorporate the modules at a pace that works for my busy life of home and career balance. The support calls have been instrumental in exposing me to the different successes and challenges that other business women are facing in a safe and supportive environment. By giving me the tools to dream bigger about my business, it has given me the confidence to recently have a conversation about my company merging with another company to better service our market. The program is relevant, user friendly, high quality and supportive.
The JunipHER Project has had a great influence and impact to my business. I have been in business for 12 years, and was at a turning point in the business as to which direction I should pursue next. I have been wanting to grow…but just didn’t know how to get there, or if growing was even the right decision for me and my business. I have a strong, profitable business, and wasn’t sure if I wanted to rock the apple cart, so to speak! The JunipHER Project has given me direction and a structured path to follow. It offers opportunities to share and question day-today business challenges, and how to overcome them. They have great tools to help you really look at your business and evaluate what it is you are currently doing, and where do you want to go in the future. The support network from the leaders of this Project, along with the other women is awesome! I’m so grateful to have been selected to this professional group of business women, and look forward to the rest of the Project, and the direction it will help me take my business! Thanks for the opportunity to contribute!
The JunipHER Project has been a valuable tool in gaining knowledge and insight on various aspects of running my firm. The interactive pieces, coupled with group collaboration and support has been fabulous. From funding to developing/ tweaking my strategic plan, the program has helped me to expand my business into new markets across the country. Zee and Francine have been wonderful to work with over the last year! Kudos!
My involvement in the JunipHER Project has helped me move my business forward on several levels. My focus has broadened by being more goal and planning oriented rather than a constant day to day juggling of duties. I’ve also seen where I can shift my leadership within my team to be more inclusive rather than dictative. Several systems of measurement and tracking have been implemented in our operations as well to maximize our resources and efforts.
And guess what? Your founders at Modern Femme™, Somer and Katy, are also graduates of the JunipHER Project! That’s right! It was important for them to intimately understand and experience every aspect of the program before determining if it was the best fit and next step for the community of women at Modern Femme™. Here’s what they have to say:
When we first entered the JunipHER project, it was to review and test it as a potential resource for the women we serve at Modern Femme™. I never in a million years would have guessed that it would serve as the keystone and complete overhaul that we didn’t even know we needed. The program challenged and inspired us at every turn. It asked the hard questions, built a support network that helped us better understand our goals and purpose, and set us on firm ground, with a long-term plan and a confidence that we had been missing. We are over the moon excited for the future of Modern Femme™ and KNOW we have the people, systems and plans in place that will help us serve professional women, female entrepreneurs and working moms on a global scale!
Katy Blevins Calabrese
CEO | Modern Femme™
The JunipHER Project reminded us that other professional women are experiencing the same challenges and limiting beliefs that we are grappling with as entrepreneurs and working moms. We were pushed hard to dig deep and consider how we were holding our progress back and given specific tools, activities and processes that would chart our course towards long-term scalability. We didn’t even realize how far off course we were until we encountered the support calls that gave us the intimate insights and loving critiques we needed to hear to make important changes as the leaders and founders. We can’t say enough about how effective the program is, from the inside out! It’s a huge win for us and for the community as a whole. We are honored and blessed to be able to share this opportunity with other women and can’t wait to hear how it impacts their personal and professional growth as entrepreneurs!
