Jennifer Love is the CEO of One More Woman — a fast-track, high-performance, educational and advisory community helping women entrepreneurs take the stress out of the money equation so they can effectively raise, make, manage and give money.

Her ongoing mission? To help increase the number women entrepreneurs in the world create and effectively manage businesses that have at least $1 million in revenue or more in a year. How? By helping 20 million women over the next 10 years to get access to capital, learn how to scale their businesses, and know how to confidently walk into any room of potential investors–no matter who’s in that room–and own it while knowing their self worth.
Jennifer also talks the importance of owning your gift and your purpose — that thing that keeps calling you or presenting itself to you. For her, it was about the need for her to step up and support women on their entrepreneurial journey.
