Ladies, what a time to be alive (gotta love Future and Drake)! Women are literally changing the landscape, the status quo and the dialogue of yesteryear especially when it pertains to entrepreneurship. According to Forbes thought leader and president of Ventureneer, a digital media and market research company Geri Stengel - a Golden Age for female entrepreneurs has begun and I have to agree. From artisanal tea blends to groundbreaking mix media sites like Sonder (check it out!) women are launching these innovative companies that can not be ignored.
|The Fitting of A Shepreneur: Megan dons three ensembles for her big meeting.|
One company that is fresh on the scene (literally) is Lymph Candy, a line of synthetic/chemical free deodorants helmed by Megan Hartman-Sparks . Her company (like her adorable toddler Charlie) is in it's early stages and Megan is on a mission to grow her brand and that means raising capital. A few weeks ago Megan needed a look... actually a 'Power Look' for a very important meeting for her first round of funding and being the arbiter of la mode that I am (Hi guys, I'm a Stylist) I jumped at the chance to style my very beautiful friend as she embarked on this monumental experience as a thriving entrepreneur and les petites SHEpreneur Chic was born!

So what is SHEpreneur Chic? It's not a trend, it's not fleeting and it's the essence women entrepreneurs possess when they look and feel their absolute best while handling their business! It's not the standard 3 piece suit (although I will be the first to admit I love a suit!) SHEpreneur Chic is all about harnessing your inner power and wearing it on your sleeve (or not - there's no rules kids!).

For Megan her SHEpreneur Chic look came courtesy of ZARA jumpsuit, ultra chic booties from Antrophologie and the most delicate lariat necklace we poached from her Bestie (that's what friends are for!).

Here's where it gets really interesting Megan & Team Lymph Candy has launched a Kickstarter to further expand the business. I am such a believer of the brand, it's message and the product because it works - we here at LPB totally say 'good buy' when it comes to these all natural deodorants!
