Check out my interview with Dr. Shantell Malachi of Richmond Virginia, Founder & Executive Director, Dress for Success Central Virginia, Chief Executive Officer at SheEmpowers™ International, Author of “Career Couture: The Modern Guide to Redefining Your Career” available on Amazon, 2012 Style Weekly’s Top 40 under 40. We chop it up about empowering women to pursue greater entrepreneur ventures and get involved in philanthropy while discussing how to run an organization that caters to helping people and solving common obstacles that women face in professional and personal settings.

Dress for Success is a social service DFS provides services to women who are in a disadvantaged situations or facing some unusual obstacles, such as fleeing domestic violence, reentering the workforce, trying to get back on their feet. SheEmpowers, Shantell describes, is taking the work of DFS a step further. Most of the women who are apart of SheEmpowers are professional women who are already started on the path of entrepreneurship, but for some reason are now stuck. The organization caters to women who need an extra push to step their business up to the next level.

We touch about the importance of fulfilling a need in your business in order to be successful. Shantell touches on the different aspects of building an organization that caters to the needs of women of diverse backgrounds, and how helping them helps the overall community. The goal is to transform more women into being leaders in their individual businesses and careers, therefore empowering others to follow their example.
