We caught up with Maseru through the Simbi online bartering platform. As a recent contractor and now full-fledged business provider, she shares some of her background with us.


What made you decide to start the business? 

Shekinah Business Solutions is an online company that I started this year 2018. I am a professional female freelancer from Lesotho, Africa. I am a black woman who refused to let her environment and circumstances define her. When I started freelancing, I was located in the deep mountains of the nation and had to travel over an hour to get to a place with electricity to work. I was tired of the situation I was in, tired of accepting that just because I was born in a 3rd world African nation and… read more

I've been building sites since 2008 on the Drupal platform and will set up your website if it's a straightforward site with features such as: blog, announcements, press releases, event calendar + registration, e-commerce (digital download or physical products), and similar needs.

These projects work better when you have a fairly good understanding of what you want your website to accomplish and we then work together to implement a working version that you are able to continue to update (I've deployed 250+ complex projects to date).

I'll prioritize projects that are related to: 
* environmental sustainability and green business 
* women, children, and families 
* music, film, and the arts 
* civic… read more

My favorite time of day has become the blue hour. That time before dawn when in the distance you can see blue. A friend recently posted on Facebook about it — I had no idea that it had a name, but I love it! I LOVE SILENCE. I love silence a lot more than I should probably admit. With three kids in their tween & teens, I really appreciate that I wake up early without help and ENJOY being productive before anyone else is even up. I sometimes even get outside and enjoy the colors of that blue hour as, in my opinion, they are magnificent! There’s nothing like the silence coupled with the beauty of the world.

Living in south Florida we rarely get to open… read more

When I confirmed a sit-down interview date with Angela Lee last year, I didn’t realize quite how much of a headliner she was.

Looking for names of women under 40 who have successfully started their own companies, I found her in Entrepreneur Magazine, in the article “Six Innovative Women to Watch in 2015.”

When we set the interview date, I (wisely) decided to do some research, and found that Angela is not only the founder of 37 Angels, the investment community and training program for female investors. She’s also a publicly recognized business expert, highly sought-after on Bloomberg TV, CNBC, and Fox Business Network. If that wasn’t enough, she also serves as the Assistant Dean of Columbia University’s Business… read more

This is a man’s world, and Kit Hickey, is trying to change that mantra, one dress suit at a time.

“We invent apparel,” she tells me, as we start our casual phone conversation about her company, Ministry of Supply, which she started three years ago.

Ministry of Supply is the Boston-based company that Kit and co-founders Aman Advani and Gihan Amarasiriwardena started while they were MBA students at MIT. They use the same technology that NASA uses to develop its space suits, in creating dress shirts that are designed for a better fit and greater comfort. To be specific, their shirts minimize perspiration and odor, and are also wrinkle-free.

But for… read more

It has been 11 months of being a single founder of a startup. As I have spent several months, I learned about time management on how to do things when not everything is moving in a speed that I wanted. I have to be mindful on what I am doing. Here are a few learnings that I want to share.

Meta management of time

The money and time is one of the most valuable pieces in one’s life and this is more true for startup. Especially managing time is more challenging than others because of wearing many hats as a single founder. As a result, I give a extra thought on how I am spending my time and whether it is worth it or not. I call it as ‘Meta management of time’. I use morning time to decide what to work on and my meta management… read more

Did you know that increasing female leadership in British business was a priority on the government level? That wasn’t merely words.

The former Prime Minister’s David Cameron administration called for an end to all-male boards of directors anywhere on the FTSE350 and set the goal of reaching 33% female representation on corporate boards by 2020.

Lord Davies, Parliamentary at the House of Lords, worked on the guidelines for ‘Improving the Gender Balance on British Boards’ program to voluntarily involve FTSE (Financial Times Stock Exchange) corporations in increasing number of women on top positions.

very month my clients at Big Door invite trending startups to show off their products to potential users, marketers, entrepreneurs, creators, and like minded individuals in an effort to gain user feedback (through Product Hunt). November’s meetup is even more significant since partnering with BRAID to feature female founded companies.

In witnessing the recent national divide, we are now being called “to build that better, stronger, fairer America we seek” (from Hillary Clinton’s Concession Speech for the 2016 Presidential Election). Part of that responsibility includes shining a light, with bullhorn in hand, on the neglected or suppressed.

For the past few months, our team has been visiting customers face-to-face, including a 33-year-old woman living in the slums of Chennai, India.

We’ve visited her every day in temperatures easily soaring above 100 degrees. (The locals call this peak summer season ‘agni natchathiram,’ the season of fire.) We’ve visited her in the pouring rain, when the alleys in front of her home have begun to flood. And we’ve visited her despite her mild scoldings — she’s as worried about ourhealth, when we’re outdoors in this extreme weather, as we are about hers. It’s all worth it, though, because we’ve finally gained her trust.

Today is the first of a four-part series on why we believe that investments in women’s health should be more inclusive.

Nagavalli, our customer, works as a domestic helper at 9 homes every day. During her only window of free time, she cleans the house, spends time with her children and cooks them dinner. Her conviction that her two sons and daughter, aged 14, 10 and 8, can lead better lives than her overrides the hopelessness that she could easily succumb to.

“I want my kids to study well and not end up in a job like me. That’s all I want and nothing else.”

Pictured above is Nagavalli, our customer, in her home in Dhideer Nagar, one of Chennai’s slum areas.… read more

I’m a big fan of automation and have written about my attempts to build a Dexter-enabled chatbot that sends inspirational quotes (Chatbots Magazine, My Bot Beginnings).

Lately I’ve been exploring the tool and all the “applets” that are offered, in an effort to coordinate and organize and “push” the information I’m most interested in, to my Twitter feed at @FemaleFounders1

I am so inspired by the work of Veronika Scott and the team at the Detroit-based The Empowerment Plan. Join other female founders in making a donation to the non-profit here:

In her own words, Scott “was inspired to start The Empowerment Plan when a class at The College for Creative Studies in Detroit challenged her to create a product to fill an actual need in her community.”

Since that initial research into the issue of generational poverty and homelessness, The Empowerment Plan, and the EMPWR coat was created.

The Empowerment Plan has produced and distributed over 15,000 coats in 40 US States and 7 Canadian provinces since 2011,… read more
