Alright, ladies and gents - we're excited to feature our last (but most certainly not least) female entrepreneur. I always love a reason to reach out to my fellow entrepreneurs, but this process has been exceptionally fun. I'm beyond grateful to know all of the women we've featured in this series, and I can only hope that I'll continue to connect with amazing female business-owners in the future. SO - with that being said - everyone meet Whitney Crutchfield!

Entrepreneur: Whitney Crutchfield of WE GATHER

How I met her: Funny story…back in 2015, I went to a trade show…during the WRONG season. Like, selling hats for Spring/Summer wrong. It was bad. I cried a lot and one day came in after crying so much that people thought I had an allergy attack. I had spent so much money to be there and was super embarrassed that I had made such a big mistake. ENOUGH of that though - some good did come out of it. I happened to be directly across from Betsy of Sylvan Park and we became friends. Fast forward to years later and her friend/studiomate, Whitney Crutchfield, reached out about an event she was hosting in Boston. We quickly became “insta” friends and actually did an event together in NYC at our pop-up.

My bio on her: Whitney is the founder of WE GATHER in Brooklyn. She hosts textile classes and makes absolutely gorgeous handwoven textiles. Plus she’s enthusiastic, beautiful, smart, creative and hilarious. I met her in real life in NYC, and we jumped right into a pom-pom making class together. It took about 10 seconds for me to feel like I had known her forever. I also get completely sucked into her Instagram whenever she posts videos of her weaving. It puts me in a trance!

Here's what Whitney had to say about being a female entrepreneur:

What is one piece of advice you give to aspiring female entrepreneurs?

Ask for help! Gather a group of friends/acquaintances that you trust and ask them what they think about your ideas or ask them to help you strategize, and be open to their feedback. More information (almost) never hurts.

Also, I've surveyed my studiomate/friend Laura of Lotto Love and she suggests this quote from Theodore Roosevelt: "Comparison is the thief of joy."

What is one not-so-sexy (sh*ttiest) part of working for yourself that people don't typically see on social media?

Hearing "no" from someone and having no one to blame but yourself. (This is also a good motivator). Also, no health insurance.

If there are things that are "shitty" about starting your own thing, what keeps you going? What's one of the best parts of your "job"?

Waking up and feeling excited instead of dreadful is what keeps me going. Connecting with other people who also get excited about my work is pretty amazing, too, whether they're in the same industry or just curious and enthusiastic supporters. Feeling like I'm contributing something good and productive to the world instead of taking something away from it.

 

XO,

Christina

My wife and I want to show profound gratitude and appreciation, ever since the pandemic things have always been very difficult for me and my family, I lost my job during the Covid19 stay at home pandemic and it was very difficult for me to secure a new job that was how life became terrible for me, But thank God for bringing this man into my life, Mr Bernie Doran. I read so many good reviews online on how he has been helping a lot of people both small business owners to gain financial income so I contacted him on WhatsApp and that was the day my life change began, I started with the lowest investment plan which was $1,500 and within a week I earned a profit of $18,500 on his trade management system, since then I have been making huge profits with the help of MR BERNIE DORAN, Now I can do basically anything I want for myself and my family, I just can’t thank you enough sir, may God continue to reward you. I highly recommend to everyone that needs financial aid, contact him on:

Trading on the Cryptocurrency market has really been a life changer for me. I almost gave up on crypto at some point not until saw a recommendation on Elon musk successfully success story and I got a proficient trader/broker Mr Bernie Doran , he gave me all the information required to succeed in trading.
