Some sad (and wildly motivating) stats...
Only 3.6% who dream of starting their own business actually do it... and of those that do start 90% fail in the first few years.
Only 12% of businesses owned by women are bringing in more than 100k. Only 2% reach the million mark.
66% of women second guess their decision to start a business.
Self-employed women are at a higher risk of mental illness due to gender obstacles and isolation.
The statistics are against us girls! But that just makes me want to change them.
Hi, I'm Merilyn.
I've been and done many things in life - architect, learning & development executive, mum, strategic director, brand architect, photographer, entrepreneur, divorcee and even preacher. I've lived in Europe and Australia and helped others build award winning brands...
... but I'm devoting the rest of my life, and my company, to one mission: helping women lead.
Lead their fears, their wealth and their businesses, so they can have more freedom, more influence and make a greater impact.
... and possibly even lead the world.
