MILLION DOLLAR WOMEN

At Million Dollar Women, we coach women entrepreneurs who are ready to “go big” and help them reach $1M in revenues faster. Currently, fewer than 3% of all women entrepreneurs are making north of $1M in revenues (it’s 6% for male entrepreneurs) and for women of color, it’s fewer than 1%. We work with the corporations, nonprofits and government organizations who share our mission to bring more resources, mentorship, and tools to the women who are ready to scale up their businesses.

Million Dollar Women grew out of the the book Julia authored, “Million Dollar Women” (Simon & Schuster), to encourage more women to master the three things you need to go big: the right mindset, skill set, and network. In the book, Julia tells her story of launching and scaling up her company Little Pim, and features seven women who built multi-million dollar businesses from scratch. The book also contains DIY exercises and interviews with VCs and other investors. The book was published in the US, UK, the Netherlands, Australia, and India.

OUR WHY

  • We are helping more women build multi-million dollar businesses, access financial freedom and become leaders in their communities​
  • Women entrepreneurs employ 7.8 million people and generate $1.6 trillion in revenues. When one million more women make $1M we will add another $1T to the GDP and create 5 million more jobs​

THE STATS

  • 12.8M women entrepreneurs in the US​
  • Fewer than 3% of all women entrepreneurs get to $1M in revenues ​
  • Fewer than 1% of women of color entrepreneurs get to $1M in revenues​
