Sandra is an award-winning entrepreneur and is recognized by the International Alliance for Women as one of the world’s 100 Top Difference Makers and by CNN as an American Hero.
The eWomenNetwork Foundation she created has, to date, awarded cash grants to 115 non-profit organizations and scholarships to 167 emerging female leaders of tomorrow.
In this podcast, she shares her views on the importance of having a mentor to be successful in business, why entrepreneurs benefit from having a network, and the need for relationships in our lives. Despite a busy schedule, she manages to invest in her own learning, stay innovative, and prioritize what’s most significant in her life.
In addition to her work with eWomenNetwork, she has been featured in Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneur’s Soul and has four other #1 bestsellers. She has produced a movie, The Glow Project, and because of it, she rang the NASDAQ bell and had her company’s logo featured in Times Square.
She had humble beginnings as a small town girl and first generation American. Her father died when she turned five and her mother had a name so common, there’s a million in the phone book.
She’s been married to her husband for 40 years and they have two children. Starting and growing a business wasn’t easy for Sandra, who has maintained a balance between her professional and personal life.
