This week we talked with Natasha Zena and Dawn Leaks, co-founders of Lioness, a magazine for entrepreneurial women.
Natasha and Dawn started Lioness magazine in 2011, because there was no mainstream media outlet focused solely on women launching startups across all industries. Lioness’ mission is to elevate, educate and support female entrepreneurs. And they truly embody that mission in all the work they do. Not only do they publish the magazine, but they work directly with women launching or running businesses to aid in their success.
The two women share insights from their work with women business owners and how to conquer the biggest downfall for many women, our own fears and self-confidence to be successful.
Dawn who is CEO of the Lioness Group, says just do it! We’ve heard this on the show before, so it must be true! Dawn adds that it’s imperative to get out there and make your dreams happen, don’t wait for an invitation.
Natasha, founder and publisher of Lioness is the driving force behind the magazine’s editorial mission. Natasha has successfully bridged the gap between featuring well-known women entrepreneurs as well as female startup founders disrupting industries.
Their advice on how to get past your fears is priceless, including tips on how to get yourself out a stalemate with your own mind, leveraging resources to overcome, and being responsive to the market.
