#StepUp2Inspire Young Girls & Women on the Path to Success through Mentorship!
The Step UP to Inspire campaign is about training to be an entrepreneur through mentorship. Successful women entrepreneurs are being called to action to step up and reach back to help young women realize their own success by mentoring and sharing their value. It is a way to perpetuate continued dedication to servant leadership.
A long time ago, someone stepped onto a stage and shared information that changed my life! Someone reached out to me and saw my potential when I didn't see it myself. I was insecure, confused, and didn't know who to share my voice and talents. I was inspired that day to change how I viewed my gifts and talents and how I could reach out to change the world. This campaign is a way to pay-it-forward for all involved!
My name is Kim Harris and I am the Creator/Visionary for the Stiletto Business Strategies™ brand. You can learn more about me by clicking here.
I am very passionate about sharing information that transforms business and lives, and that is why I created the Stiletto Women Business Owners Symposium™, a live tour that travels across the U.S. and abroad. This platform engages the most successful women entrepreneurs in their industry to share value and make a difference.
Mentoring played an important role in my life growing up, and this campaign will help us bridge the gap between those girls who don't have access to inspiring role models so they can realize their greatest possibility.
Here are some statistics on the importance of the mentoring relationship and how it impacts:
The goal of the Step UP to Inspire campaign is two-fold: 1) create mentorship roles to cultivate the minds of young girls and women at our live and virtual events, and open the doors of opportunity so that they can reach their highest potential; 2) to encourage social responsibility for women business owners by identifying local entities to create cause-related partnerships.
The Stiletto Women Business Owners Symposium™ 2015 tour is on tap to visit 3 domestic cities and two international cities. We have committed to awarding 15 scholarships within each city. This represents 75 young girls and women between the ages of 16-30 who will be empowered with the information shared at our symposium and making important, possibly, life long connections with successful women entrepreneurs.
What We Need & What You Get
The impact of Step Up to Inspire Scholarship campaign is a far-reaching and lasting one. The information learned by sponsored participants from our symposium format provide practical action plans that can be easily implemented. Additionally, mentoring resources are open to participants in an ongoing relationship. Resources are continually compiled and contributed to our online training center and available to access at any time. The right information delivered at the right time, can change lives.
Your support will magnify our efforts to reach our goal to positively impact 75 young girls and women. It will provide a means to attend the event to receive valuable information that can enhance their lives.
There are some challenges we face when planning our symposiums in different cities. Tickets sale benchmarks, venue location, other major events happening at the same time. Having successfully hosting several symposiums, and evaluating the success of each one, I have discovered creative ways to address challenges that would enhance the experience. Here are some ways we do this:
We know that there may be some who want to contribute, but are limited, however, sharing this campaign with people in your circle of influence can help would be your gift. Please ask others to help support the Step Up to Inspire Scholarship campaign, and use INDIEGOGO tools to spread the word about your own project, so that I can support you, too!
Thank you so much for taking time to read through this, watch my very modest video, and supporting my project!
