Every day I think of how incredible it is to be alive during a time where our culture has women creating businesses, finding collaborative partnerships, and thriving in doing so. Even though venture funding, leadership positions, equal pay, benefits for working women, support for mothers (among so many other issues ๐Ÿ˜ ) still have such a long way to go, I still am very aware of just how far we have come. ----------------------------------------------------My great-grandmother was in her 50's in NYC before being allowed to vote, and her daughter, my grandmother, was 16. My great-grandmother did everything she could to be self-reliant, but it was only her daughter who would experience the ability to have opened a business without her husband's name or credit, and this was only achieved in the last eight years of her life. ---------------------------
We have so much more work to do on this planet, and in far too many dark corners of the world, but I know that we have much to thank for those who have come before us to fight for what we now have. -
These are growing days, these are changing times, and I pray to do my small part in helping to make each step of the women who come after me, just a little bit easier ...........................................................................................................

Six members of a 25-person Dream Team pictured here - we just made it successfully through a 3-day shoot! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #gratitude

Shoe shopping with a 15 month old never quite goes as planned... ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘…

Every office needs a #buddhabooth for meditation... And a #placetopump :) If these two things were truly addressed and supported in today's society, what an incredible difference it would make.

Gave our latest shoe prototypes a test run on stage today... :)

Had some fun with fit at our @brooklynshoefactory today ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘ ...

I'm reminded of just how much it takes an incredible team to make any dream work. Just had our first-ever contest for our new shoe company @antoniasaintny and we couldn't have done it without our team. ๐Ÿ’œ We're all on the field together, and no matter how loudly one person may shout "at the top," please know that it's ALWAYS upon the shoulders of countless others that they are there. Very grateful for everyone who's been working with us on this one, and for all those awesome ladies who entered! More to come, and I can't wait ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโœจ#gratitude #team #startuplife --- P.S. Hand-drawn illustration by a very talented artist on our growing crew, Ms. Sam Camarro

Sending love out to all the Mamas today ๐Ÿ’œ
