Founder Notes

A recently published article in the ‘Harvard Business Reviewstated that there’s a Global Rise of female entrepreneurs and the number is rapidly rising. The study found that perceptions of opportunity and capability strongly link to entrepreneurial activity — that is, if you think you will succeed and will be supported, you are more likely to try.

Female entrepreneurs really do have something to rejoice about according to a recent ‘Forbes’ report. As of 2014, the number of wealthy women in the U.S. was growing twice as fast as the number of wealthy men, 45% of American millionaires were women and it’s estimated that by 2030, women will control as much as two-thirds of the nation’s wealth. However, we still have some work to do and you can help shatter the glass ceiling for female entrepreneurs by sharing your business tips and expert advice.

Heels AgencyI believe this impressive upswing of female entrepreneurs is largely due to the fact that women genuinely feel more supported. With support comes confidence, resulting in courage to take a risk. Women are also beginning to appreciate the importance of networking; realising the bigger and more diverse their network, the bigger their support base and the more likely they are to excel in business.

In recognition of this trend, Heels Agency provides a vibrant source of inspiration and support for the growing number of women excelling in the business arena. There has never been a more exciting time for enterprising women to run their own business.

Heels Agency will be exploring opportunities, sharing stories and profiling achievements online, at featured events, seminars and exhibitions. Our aim is to bring as many fabulous women together to discuss the range of challenges faced each day, share our knowledge and celebrate the wealth of successes experienced by women in business today.

These truly are unprecedented times for women in business to shine. Our potential is enormous and we are only just beginning to realise the value of our contribution to the economy and to the social landscape. Heels Agency reflects the diversity, creativity and determination which motivates women in business to effect positive transformation, individually and collectively – making us all women of substance.

It’s a great time to be a female entrepreneur as we are surrounded by so much support. – Demi Karan

Ok, so the truth of the matter is I love being an entrepreneur. It really is an incredible experience, but it isn’t always easy. A bit of a roller coaster ride? Yes. An adventure? Definitely ! All sunshine and rainbows? Yeah, not so much.

So where do you turn when you’re not sure where to start or feeling the weight of the entrepreneurial world on your shoulders? When you need some sort of a motivational pick-me-up or re-assurance?

For me, talking with other like-minded people is key and the reason Heels Agency was created. Having someone to talk to as a reference point serves as a quick reminder that I’m not in this alone. It reminds me that others have been where I am, that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and that anything and everything is possible. Like-minded people can help us excel by sparking our imagination, inspiring our creativity, and motivating us to step-up and “get it done”.

With the growing number of exceptional women’s networking events today, this is a great place to start for some fresh inspiration, useful referrals and joint venture opportunities with people of the same mind. The world of business is constantly evolving and there’s always something new we can learn by further developing our professional network and personal friendships.

There can never be too many wonderful women in our community. – Demi Karan

My team and I will be sourcing the most exceptional events and articles from some of our most admired business, fashion and lifestyle icons to inspire, empower, and motivate us all to greatness. What can I say? We’re women, we want it all!

I’d love to welcome you into our fabulous global community and excited to be on this journey with you!
