A Message From Marie
I have been described as a lot of things. My personal favorite is being called a Spark Plug who can envision the big picture, as well as execute on the ideas. Long before the term was in vogue, I was an entrepreneur at heart. I love the challenge of building something from the ground up.
From the time I was a girl, I knew someday I would make a difference in a significant way. As the clock started ticking towards 50, I realized that later was now; if I didn’t make a move, I would regret it on my deathbed.
Faced with the knowledge that the time was at hand, and armed with a healthy dose of risk-taking confidence, I quit my job to figure it out. With the sound of people saying, “Are you crazy?” “You did what?” “Did you get fired and don’t want to admit it?” ringing in my ears, I set forth to make sh*t happen. It was the most terrifyingly wonderful thing I’ve ever done.
Soon afterwards, I realized that my path had been in front of me all along – build a business with a social mission and do well by doing good. I am a working philanthropist!
Daughters of Change was born from a fiery passion and a fearless belief that everything is possible. I hope you’ll join us on this journey. It’s going to be one hell of a ride.
