The old-world view that you can just jump into starting your own business and figure it out as you go along isn't working as many women (and men) had hoped. Lately we have been promised that entrepreneurism is the yellow brick road to freedom. abundance and living our purpose while making a living. We know that it will require a LOT of work.
A LOT OF WORK!!!
But the work is driven by you and in the end, you know all the hours, sweat and tears combined provides the amazing results and ultimately gives meaning to your life. This type of purpose-driven work is much more gratifying than working forty hours a week for someone else and their dreams, THAT'S FOR SURE!
But as we navigate the unfamiliar territory of launching and growing a business, we (millennial female entrepreneurs) need examples of women that speak to us and our unique challenges. Women who are taking risks, learning as they go, raising funds, working from home, finding advisors, working with mentors, integrating family and friends while pursuing a business and life that ignites a deep-seeded passion that cannot be ignored! And these are the women that make up the ENTREPRENEURS EN VOGUE show!
With a plethora of women launching businesses, we cannot only have a few women to draw from as examples!
As for me, looking back at 2015, I learned that I LOVE learning and conversing with women that have turned their passion into their careers! I LOVE being an advocate of women entrepreneurs and the voice of Millennial females because I truly believe that we are the RISING STARS that will turn the current state of the world around.
As you finish the year strong, listen to the BEST OF 2015 from Entrepreneurs En Vogue and take some time to look back on some of the most powerful statements made by female rockstars who are breaking their glass ceilings - Just like YOU and I!
HAPPY NEW YEAR Y'ALL!

Megan Kitt is an international journalist turned entrepreneur whose writing assignments have taken her across the United States, into Asia, and to Africa. Her travels inspired her to, at age 23, found Tuli, a social business that fights poverty by creating sustainable jobs in Uganda rather than focusing on one-time aid efforts. Tuli sells handmade Ugandan jewelry all over the world, both in retail stores and online.
A journalist by trade, Megan got her start as a fashion model, a job whose income she used to pay for her undergraduate degrees in English literature, creative writing, and journalism, which she earned in 2012. Through her work as a model, Megan learned enough about the fashion industry to catapult Tuli to success.
After taking a trip to Uganda in early 2014, Megan started Tuli from scratch, developing its website and product line alone before aggressively growing the business. For Tuli’s first year of business, Megan was the sole operator of the company. Now, she employs a team in the US in addition to those she employs in Uganda.
Currently, Megan lives in Tokyo, Japan with her husband, where she oversees Tuli’s remote team. Though Tuli is her main focus, writing remains an important part of her life, so she works as a freelance travel writer and journalist for several media outlets and is pursuing a graduate degree in creative writing.
Julie Busha is the Founder and President of Nicole Foods, a food manufacturing company she co-owns which consumes the bulk of her time and efforts. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Busha spent her entire professional career in the world of sports marketing, starting with International Management Group and most recently as Director of Marketing for an agency owned by professional NASCAR driver Bobby Labonte—a company she was recruited to build in 2007 where she continued to work with her client of nearly a decade, General Mills. Since venturing out on her own, helping companies reach their potential and growing brands through strategic marketing is, without a doubt, the most fulfilling job Busha could ask for. Julie was honored this month as Progressive Grocer's 2015 "Top Women in Grocery" and a book by a major publisher coming out in 2016 will feature her story in several chapters. Her story is so powerful and inspiring and we are THANKFUL for role models like her that come on this show to share their life lessons with us.
In this episode, Julie opens our eyes on the importance of reinvesting your money on marketing strategies that will help your business grow. She has successfully placed her product in over 8000 retail stores. Yes that's right, 8000 ! So click here to find Slawsa at a store near you.
On the other hand, Slawsa is seriously the condiment that may just change your life. We have personally tried it (Thank you Julie!) and let's just say it is not your average "sauce". In case you were wondering about the name, it is a cross between “slaw” (coleslaw) and “salsa.” Brilliant!!! Slawsa is a favorite of Hungry Girl and several other Food Network hosts because it is really changing people's perceptions of what a RELISH is or can be. Healthier, more versatile and far more flavorful. Perfect addition to our Thanksgiving table.
For the holidays, we thought we would share with you some ideas of recipes using Slawsa (Check them out here).

This week on Entrepreneurs En Vogue, Iman and Jeremey not only learn about what it takes to make the perfect cup of coffee but also what characteristics are needed to be a successful entrepreneur. You have to be “unafraid to be courageous” is the advice our entrepreneur of the day, Elizabeth Cardiello explains to the listeners. With the successful coffee company Caffe Unimatic and Legacy Out Loud, a global initiative to “inspire, empower and give young women the confidence to think and act entrepreneurially”, Elizabeth Cardiello is just the woman to talk to about entrepreneurship (and all things coffee).
Her story: Father and daughter bond over entrepreneurship, which has shaped the woman she has become and inspired her whole life.
Her experience: She always worked with her dad and although she loved her father and his ideas she wanted to come up with her own "thing". Until she found her business, she worked in finance while helping her dad with all his businesses.
Her business: When her father passed away, she went to clean out his office and found wall to wall closet-turned-warehouse of coffee unimatics. Unimatics have been a part of her life growing up.
Her Entrepreneurship definition: “to be creative” “failure is a badge of honor, if you are not failing…you aren’t learning anything” Elizabeth talks about how her father taught her how to embrace failure and be “unafraid to be courageous”. To her Entrepreneurship is "having an idea and being unafraid and be courageous enough to try.... you will fail but that’s progress because if you aren’t failing you aren’t growing.
Her Legacy: teaching young girls everything her dad taught her, especially how to master the mindset of a successful entrepreneur.
