"It is all about commitment aligned with purpose that helps you stay relevant long after you have been in the industry".

 

Two young and ambitious women gave birth to an idea that turned into a movement called She Matters, celebrating the power of She. This initiative saw women from different parts of Johannesburg come together to celebrate one another in the first ever event that was held at Plantation Café in Midrand on Sunday.

Tebogo Makola and Ursula Kumalo who are the co-founders behind the She Matters initiative were impressed beyond their expectation as women came dressed up in their themed different pastel colours. 

The aim of the event was to uplift, encourage, advice and empower women and there was a panel of different speakers that included successful entrepreneurs such as Rhonda Adams and Thabisile M, a health and fitness nutritionist Zinhle Masango, financial coach Zandile Finca as well as Dr. Nokukhanya Khanyile who is a medical doctor by profession.

Adams said that if you want to become a successful business woman, you have to find the 'Why'. "It is all about commitment aligned with purpose that helps you stay relevant long after you have been in the industry". While Masango opened a Q and A session with the crowd about health and fitness, Dr. Khanyile broke down the words, 'She Matters' and left crowd with some food for thought. "Transition from a place of ignorance to a place of understanding and knowledge in order to move you higher places in your life", said Khanyile.

The sweet orchestrated sound of the Anchored Sound music band made the networking session flow as ladies came together to share their, business cards, advice and experiences. The ladies not only left feeling inspired but they each left with a goodie bag.

"The turn out of the event exceeded my expectation and I am very happy that the event turned out to be a success. There will be winter edition of She Matters but details will be confirmed soon", said one of the co-founders Tebogo Makola.
