Why do only 1.7% of female founders reach $1 million in annual revenue? 😲 On this week's episode of Opportunity Knocks, we'll dig into this with the founder of The Badass CEO.
Mimi is a mom of 5, an entrepreneur, a Business School Grad, a CPA, and an angel investor. She started her career in Investment Banking at Kidder, Peabody, and went on to obtain a CPA while working at Price Waterhouse in NYC. Retail was a passion of hers, so she then became a buyer at Bloomingdales. She studied Entrepreneurship at Columbia Business School and started several companies along the way, including one of her newest ventures, Baby Barn Organics.
On top of all that, Mimi is an angel investor and has invested in many companies that she believes in, including Beautycounter. She loves working with other entrepreneurial women who have started businesses by mentoring and investing in their companies. She's also a Beautycounter Managing Director and built a successful team of 800 consultants.
What isn't she doing? Not much!! Which is why this conversation is going to be so helpful to a lot of you. If any of you feel like you're juggling a million things, allow Mimi to give you some insights into how she does it, and successfully at that.
Plus ➕ she goes into great detail about:
💸 Why your business should be able to run without you
💸 Raising capital for your business
💸 The power & importance of systems
💸 Angel investing
💸 Outsourcing work based on your hourly rate
💸 The importance of empowering your children

Mimi is a great friend of mine and it was a pleasure to chat with her. I know her very well and I'm still amazed by her story and learning more about how she does it all...and still finds time to lift up, mentor, and invest in so many women around her. This is such a great episode of Opportunity Knocks. You're probably going to want to save it and return to it again and again.
