Imagine a book featuring 100 of the most influential women making moves in your city! Well Sarah Benken imagined it a little over 1 year ago and when she sat down to record with the Finding Arizona Podcast about her business, Metro’s Other Woman (listen here) we wanted to promote, support and see to it her dream became a reality. In February of 2018 Volume I was launched and after meeting, connecting and conversing with these powerful women, Sarah asked me to be apart of Volume II.
Being in the “Tribe” is an honor, but also a responsibility. I decided to take on an On the RIse Women to Watch Page because our podcast is “On The Rise!” Our 9-5s are not the podcast, yet, but I know my connections in this organization will lift me by boosting others. Thankfully, the skills I have learned as a business owner have allowed me to practice being a tenacious producer in the media industry, but also keeping a student mentality.
We are more than a publication. This tribe was created to spark women relationships and cultivate growth by networking and getting outside of our industries and comfort zones. My favorite thing about the tribe is there are “No Mean GIrls Allowed.” To much of what we do is criticized and compared and this community is all about support and love!
Vol I and II have had a few guests of the podcast, but I look forward to establishing many more relationships and seeing what the future holds for our business through this publication and tribe. The events are amazing! The cocktail hour mixers have been spectacular from the food and drinks to the locations, the Know Tribe utilizes the resources within: For Us By Us. Also, I cannot wait for the conference! The first ever Know Summit will take place this April in Phoenix and we have so many amazing things planned for it!
Our launch party this year was in the Southwest Airlines Airplane Hanger at Phoenix Sky Harbor and we got 150 powerful women on the plane to celebrate! These photos were taken by Desert Peak Productions and you can see the full album here. The final photo was taken by MiMI Paris Photography for the AZ Foothills Magazine. You can see the entire album here.
So as I sit here finishing up my first hustle to go home to my second hustle I am wearing my Know Tribe 2019 rose quartz bracelet and excited to see what new opportunities bloom from the beautiful relationships. Watch out 2019, you are going to KNOW The Finding Arizona Podcast, were On the Rise, I am a Woman to Watch!
