Ten years ago, I started Her Corner for myself. A resource to help me connect with other business owners as I was working on growing a business. There is no way I could have ever predicted the joy, fulfillment and friendships that would come with building this business and this community that has served over a thousand business owners.
Five years into building Her Corner, Kimby came into my life, asking me one day whether I’d be interested in a business partner.
WHAT A LUCKY DAY THAT WAS.
Aside from being able to work and grow a business with someone who became one of my best friends, together we were able to expand Her Corner into five new markets and focus on what business owners needed the most – the ‘how to’ programs and education to help them grow.
Over these last 10 years Her Corner has helped women grow from low six figure businesses to several million dollars. We have helped women hire and build companies that support their families and their local communities. And we have helped women get access to capital – whether through funding or PPP loans during the pandemic. Each and every one of these women inspired us and helped us believe in what we were doing, offering and building.
A few months ago, Kimby and I made the difficult decision to sell Her Corner. After months of intense discussion, we ultimately concluded that in order for our company to grow into its next chapter, it needed a fresh set of eyes and a renewed sense of energy. We no longer felt we were the right team to take Her Corner into its next chapter of growth. And, we also both felt ready to go explore and build new chapters of our own professional lives.
And so today, we are announcing that we have officially sold Her Corner to a new owner.
We were beyond lucky to have several buyers interested in acquiring Her Corner. The one we selected could not be more perfect. She is a successful business owner who has built and grown her own business, and who happens to have also gone through the Her Corner programs herself. She has been involved with Her Corner for several years, and is thrilled to take on the opportunity to grow what has already been created.
In addition to the new owner, we also leave Her Corner in the hands of some of the most talented and successful facilitators we have ever had. Women who shattered glass ceilings on Wall Street, led teams in global management consulting firms, broke down the barriers for women and minorities to have access to more opportunities, and who built and sold businesses. These women are some of the incredible talent we have assembled to continue to lead our peer groups for women. I have never been more proud of the leadership, and believe there is nowhere else a woman entrepreneur can go to get access to this sort of talent.
Over these last 10 years Her Corner has helped women grow from low six figure businesses to several million dollars. We have helped women hire and build companies that support their families and their local communities.
Tomorrow we invite you to meet our new owner.
