Today I am talking about growing from a local community to communities around the world with Violette de Ayala. She goes into a ton of really good topics and is very encouraging talking about her journey from working in corporate to building the FemCity community and growing it worldwide. We talk about the struggles that come along with building something from the ground up with limited funding and where she is now in her business with her team and the growth of her community. We also talk about what people can do if they’re struggling to love their work and how they can evaluate their businesses. One of the big focuses of FemCity is making sure that they are in service to others, which fits right in with this podcast, so I was very excited to bring it to you today.
