Advice for expat women – #WomenInPower with Mallory Blair

We’re excited to continue our #WomenInPower video series with Mallory Blair, Small Girls PR.

What is Women in Power? 

Ellevest talked to four successful women entrepreneurs in the food, fashion, tech and PR industries about how they overcame the challenges of raising money and building a business. No BS, no glossing over the grit, just woman-to-woman advice from influential #WomenInPower. Here’s the 3rd installment.

Why do we need this conversation? Because:

  • Companies run entirely by women only get about 2.2% of venture capital dollars.

  • With those kinds of odds, it’s no surprise that only about 17% of venture-backed startups were led by a woman founder in 2017.

  • But once they launch, women-founded companies outperform companies led by men.

“When you’re an entrepreneur, and especially when you’re a bootstrapped entrepreneur, the joke is that you can work whenever you want, but you have to work all the time. For the first couple of years, we were the cleaning person, we were the office administrator, we were the scheduler, we were the director, we were the assistant.” -Mallory Blair, Small Girls PR

The third episode of our #WomenInPower video series features the CEO and founder of Small Girls PR, Mallory Blair. Get to know Mallory, how she started a business at 21 years old, and why she bootstrapped SGPR rather than taking on outside funding.

I think the moment I think that I’ve made it is the moment I should no longer be in this job.” –Mallory Blair, Small Girls PR
