Waking up with Vicki Saunders, founder of SheEo
Now more than ever we feel its important to celebrate women who are true pioneers! To do that we will be featuring an interview with an inspiring woman every Monday morning to start the week.
This week we are kicking off the series with Vicki Sauders @sheeovicki founder of @sheeo and named one of the 100 most influential leaders of 2015 from EBW – Empowering A Billion Women.
I am the founder of SheEO, a global initiative to radically transform how we support, finance and celebrate female entrepreneurs.
Up to 1000 women per community contribute $1100, $1000 of which goes into a fund and we select up to 10 women-led ventures who have at least $50k in revenue are majority women-owned and women-led. The ventures get 0% interest loans paid back over 5 years and get access to our networks, our buying power and our expertise to grow their businesses.
Our goal is to be in 1000 communities around the world by 2020 supporting 10,000 entrepreneurs with $1Billion in radically generous loans and community.
WHAT TIME DO YOU WAKE UP?
Anytime between 5-7am depending on my activity levels. I love early morning. It’s when I’m clearest all day.
FIRST THREE THINGS YOU DO IN THE MORNING?
Set intentions for the day with my husband, scan my social media/email, drink a shot of fresh squeezed ginger and lemon.
WHAT'S YOUR GO TO BREAKFAST OR DRINK?
Coffee. Almond butter. ½ banana. Ginger/lemon shot.
WHATS YOUR MORNING BEAUTY ROUTINE?
I speak a lot at events these days so I get my hair done at @thedrybar if I’m travelling or @bloheartsyou if I’m in Canada. That’s about it. Great hair pops me up a level.
CAN'T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT?
Cell phone. Nothing else is a constant.
YOUR MONDAY MANTRA?
My daily mantras are all about gratitude and intention. Before bed every night – What am I grateful for today? In the mornings, what’s my daily intention?
Thanks to Vicki for participating! Learn more about SheEo.
