FROM THE FOUNDER
I am beyond grateful for the incredible online community that I am lucky enough to engage with, being able to reach hundreds of thousands of women through social media on a daily basis.
As we find ourselves being propelled into the vortex that is digital media, I am also growing increasingly aware of the responsibility that comes with the impact of social media.
I started the SAMANTHA WILLS FOUNDATION as I wanted to create a platform that was accessible to young entrepreneurs, which would hopefully make them feel less isolated in their journey & experiences. Its so easy to find the success stories, but I wanted to create a platform that, while still celebrating wins, also put a spot light on the realities of start-up business, the anxiety, the isolation, the hurdles, the claustrophobia of hrowing everything you have at a risk, with no guarantee of reward. It is hard, and it can be very challenging, not only professionally, but personally.
The SAMANTHA WILLS FOUNDATION it is a place for me to write & share what I have learnt so far, and also share some things I am still learning (often, the hard way!). It is a platform, & community for our followers to ask questions, be inspired & connect, but most powerfully, share their journey’s; the successes & the struggles.
I hope that you not only appreciate the vulnerabilities shared on this platform, but also bring some to the table yourself - It is my true belief that that is how true empowerment comes, from sharing our hardships & vulnerabilities. Everyone is going through the same shit - just not everyone is talking about it! So lets celebrate each others wins, but also share our hurdles. My hope is us all doing so, is to lift the veil a little on the 'highlight reel' of social media, and the glamorized / curated portrayals of 'overnight success stories'
Whatever brought you to this site, I hope you stay a while, join the community & conversation at @SamanthaWillsFoundation – and know that you are not alone in your journey.
