Welcome to Feature Friday! Every week we feature a new and inspiring woman entrepreneur and share her story for those looking to start or grow their own entrepreneurial venture.
This week we are featuring Adrienne Garland of She Leads Media who was inspired to start her own business so she could spend time with her family and avoid the hour and a half commute to her corporate job. Check out more of her story below.

My life. I wanted to have more flexibility so that I could be more present with my family. I had been working in NYC which was at least an hour and a half commute each way and it was affecting my life in a negative way. I wanted to transition out of corporate and into an entrepreneurial venture, but didn’t know how to do it. So, my friend and I decided to put on a conference and invite the smartest people we know to share their expertise with other women like us who were seeking knowledge and connections.
Thinking about how to scale my business and create a large and steady revenue stream.
I think my mantra is to create a scalable business. If women don’t create businesses that are bigger than themselves, we will never equalize the financial power in this country or anywhere else in the world.
My business is She Leads Media – a media and marketing company that offers women entrepreneurs and leaders the tools, resources, relationship building and inspiration needed to effectively thrive as leaders – both professionally and personally.
Throughout the year, She Leads hosts an annual conference, along with smaller events and workshops that provide practical, actionable advice, tips, tools, resources and relationship building. From time to time we offer content and resources from trusted partners that we believe is of value to our audience. Register for She Leads 2016 conference on October 6th!
Finally, She Leads Media provides marketing and event services to brands – large and small – who are looking to understand and engage with women and diverse business owners and leaders.
