One thing all female entrepreneurs need: men.

One thing all female entrepreneurs need: men.

Yes, men. Why? Because in order to grow you need to surround yourself with a diversified group of peers. That means we need both women and men to succeed. And while some may feel men are an obstacle to female entrepreneurship, we'd argue the opposite — that many are the reason we are here. Or maybe it’s just the ones we choose to surround ourselves with.

Challenge us or support us. Call us crazy or call us brilliant. Regardless of the role men play, they’re making us stronger, smarter, and more inspired than ever before, and for that we are thankful.

Alyssa from The A-Lyst talks about her experience with blistabloc

"The brainchild of two female entrepreneurs who met during their MBA program at Northeastern University (my alma mater!), blistabloc’s reactive shoe insert, b.bloc™, was created to prevent blisters BEFORE they even occur. The discreet clear plastic strips, which come in a pack of a four, get taped on the interior back of your casual sneaker, heel, boat shoe, or flat in the spot(s) where you are most apt to get irritation. b.bloc’s unique material properties mold to your shoe and react to movement, temperature and pressure, working to reduce the discomfort caused by the friction of your foot and shoe rubbing together."

Our fortunate ability to partner with a company that has values we believe in.

As Jacqueline and I continue to grow blistabloc, we are always walking a tightrope to make sure that our partnerships are both strategically beneficial and align with our core beliefs. Given that between the two of us we hold complete ownership of blistabloc, we are able to have the final say in the path we lead. We are always making sure that our partners have a good reputation, make an impact, and most importantly — care more about the people they work with and the customers they serve.
