Woman Crush Wednesday.
We love to celebrate female movers and shakers who are successful locally, nationally, internationally, and most importantly, personally.
This week, we are so excited to highlight Jennifer Jones, the co-founder of Women You Should Know® (est. 2011), a multidimensional brand fueled by a leading editorial site and a dynamic social community, and Women You Should Fund (launched 2017), a newly launched crowdfunding platform for women and women-led gender diverse teams.
We asked her to share with us her story and her thoughts on success.
My 23 year professional career path (16 years spent as an entrepreneur) has been exhilarating, wildly fun, and at times challenging and frighteningly unpredictable, but I believe that every turn it has taken - even the occasional shitty ones - have led me to the right place at the right time.
I have always been a self-starter, and maybe that's why I’ve never had a mentor in the traditional sense. But I’m fortunate to get a daily infusion of inspiration from all the kickass women we profile and others we get to connect with through our work and community.
My business partner, Cynthia Hornig, and I have had so many standout successes over the years, and we’ve been humbled by the recognition we’ve received. But one of the top 5 highlights was last year when we were featured by the Ms. Foundation For Women in their #MyFeminismIs campaign alongside leading advocates, activists, and influencers. We’re also just incredibly proud of the fact that over the last 16 years as business partners, we’ve taken 3 different ideas and turned them into thriving businesses through our own hard work, determination… and lack of proper sleep, of course.
A proud, NYC-based serial entrepreneur whose professional background includes over 20 years in strategic PR, marketing, and brand building, Jennifer Jones is the co-founder of Women You Should Know® (est. 2011), a multidimensional brand fueled by a leading editorial site and a dynamic social community, and Women You Should Fund (launched 2017), a newly launched crowdfunding platform for women and women-led gender diverse teams. These powerful sister brands support one another to empower women and girls. Jennifer co-founded her first business, OUTHOUSE pr, an award-winning public relations and event marketing firm, in 2001.
