An Empowered Woman is a global, membership based networking community for women professionals and entrepreneurs. Since 2007 we have  been supporting women in starting, fixing and building their businesses through web TV and radio shows, Mastermind meetings, coaching, seminars, tele-classes and special live events. We believe “Experience is the best teacher” and has designed a forum for women to empower each other by sharing their personal stories, challenges, victories and secrets to success.

An Empowered Woman Foundation seeks to sponsor 100 women annually, who are deeply committed to starting a business in order to impact themselves, their families and their community. We will provide them with education, memberships, products, services and mentors for a period of one year.  We have collaborated with some awesome organizations, professionals and supporters to make this possible, which we will affectionately refer to as our DreamMakers.


An Empowered Woman Foundation will support women entrepreneurs by providing resources and a sequence of educational tools including our signature “Power of Seven” program to facilitate the implementation of the women’s business goals and objectives with an eye toward growth and sustainability. Supporting women in starting, fixing or building their businesses.
