Tell us about your favorite book or a book you’re currently reading in the comments below! We are currently loving the Emma Watson book club on Goodreads. If you have been looking to join a book club, consider this one focused on equality and feminism founded by UN Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson, you can check it out by clicking the link in our bio! ✨📚 #makesmenetwork#whatmakesyounetwork 📸: Pinterest
#MakesMeNetwork all started with 20 seconds of courage to go up to a boss babe and connect. That connection led us to another connection. Before we knew it, we were building our own tribe of strong women. What’s stopping you from building yours? ✨ 📷: Pinterest
I don’t know about you but we think the foundation of our female network starts with our own mothers! Thank you mom for teaching us to be genuine. At the end of the day, be yourself. Being anything else is too much work. What has your mom taught you to be? 📷: Pinterest✨ #makesmenetwork#whatmakesyounetwork
Yesterday we asked @shaygirl11 what’s something she knows now that she didn’t know at the beginning of her career, and she shared these inspiring words! Sometimes it’s easy to say you’re “too” this or “not enough” of that, but it’s important to remember to be kind to yourself. It’s also important to surround yourself with strong women who remind you to love yourself ✨ #makesmenetwork#whatmakesyounetwork
Can’t believe this small passion project of ours has let us connect with this boss babe. She’s an audio engineer who has worked in the movie industry with powerhouses of some of film and televisions biggest names. Meet @shaygirl11 of @chezboomaudio! Our conversation wasn’t about her incredible career in the film and television business [check out the link in our bio if you’d like to learn more about that!]. We wanted this conversation to be about the adversity she has faced as a female in a male dominated industry. In the short time we talked with her, we were inspired by her vulnerability. Even though most people think that you need to have a thick skin to succeed in business she likes that she’s sensitive. This was very powerful to hear, because we are brought up to think of sensitivity as negative, and to see where she is and how she values her sensitivity (because she can relate to people on a deeper level) is a lesson more women should be exposed to and empowered by. She even talked about how her superpower is being underestimated – something many of us can use in our own lives! Thank you so much for being part of this project and helping us expand our network of empowered women! And thank you @leslie.wingo for making the introduction! #makesmenetwork#whatmakesyounetwork

Follow along and we will tell you all more about it next week. Thanks again for all the love and support with the start of this project 💕 #makesmenetwork#whatmakesyounetwork
When I started Modern Brunette a year ago (from today actually) I was looking for a way to express myself creatively in a way that I would enjoy. I quickly realized that although I love fashion and beauty it was not realistic for me to dress up everyday in a way that would allow me to create a consistent flow of content. Further, I lost the meaning of what I was doing, so I decided to take a step back and reevaluate WHAT I want to do and HOW I want to make a difference. So the past few months while I have been quiet on MB I have been working on a passion project alongside @erikakamarie. With the support and mentorship of @leslie.wingo - President and CEO of Sanders/Wingo, Erika and I are working towards the mission of networking with meaning. Please stay tuned, support, and follow us @makesmenetwork.
P.S. I will forever love dressing up and fashion and my major respects to all types of bloggers because it is not easy.
Meet Leslie Wingo, the CEO/President of Sanders|Wingo and an empowered woman who is empowering young women around her. We are lucky enough to be two of those women. When we are not working, we are constantly on the lookout for ways to meet other successful and inspiring women. Our attempts have included, but are not limited to: uncomfortable networking events, having to drink a few glasses of wine to get up the courage to introduce ourselves to certain people, and awkward small talk. Sometimes this works, but most of the time it just leads to weak conversations and not much else. We can tell you this much, we know there has to be a better way. This is why with the support and mentorship of Leslie, we are on a mission to find a better, more meaningful way to network. We are going for a “pay it forward” type of approach where we are meeting with one person, who will then introduce us to someone else, who will then introduce us to someone else, and so on and so forth. So follow along our journey and watch us meet some incredible women along the way. Our goal is to inspire you to go out and do the same. Thanks for the love and support and stay tuned!
