To our wonderful community,
I’m writing to you today (on my 27th birthday) to express my gratitude for supporting #WomenCrush Music in 2018. Last year was our first full year in action with a growing team of 30+ volunteers. We developed our programs, launched a blog, created merch -- we’ve become a brand that people are starting to recognize. That alone is something to celebrate, and getting to share all of our accomplishments with you is the greatest birthday gift I could ever ask for. Here’s a list of some of our 2018 wins that I’d like to celebrate with you:
As the Founder AND Directress, it’s easy to get caught up in all that’s to come, but truly, this team that I’ve been given by the universe is a group of very special people. With their dedication and passion, I have no doubts that 2019 is going to be our biggest and best year yet. With my primary focuses being on fundraising and expanding our programs, I also hope to bring on more sponsors and partners to not only help us spread our mission but also to reward our community. I’ll be travelling to different cities to speak on panels, meeting our leaders and community members in person, and listening to what they need.
I first started #WomenCrush Music in 2017 because I was in search of a community, women to be inspired by, women to support, women to collaborate with and now - I have that and so much more. While this organization started purely because of what I WANTED, it has become about what women in this industry NEED. My promise to this community, is to always keep our mission: to connect, educate and inspire rising women songwriters at the front of everything we do. My promise to myself as I enter my next chapter of life, is to do everything in my power to be a better leader for my team, and a mentor for this community.
Thank you for being on this journey with me. Raising a glass today to 2019 (and to being 27)! Cheers, friends. Let’s connect soon.
XOXO, BOSS LADY
