Emma Isaacs had already built her first multi-million dollar business by age 25 when she acquired the Business Chicks networking group. She quickly grew the membership of 250 businesswomen into a national community of 40,000, with over 100 annual events and an online community that connects thousands of people every week.
And the Biz Chicks phenomenon has just made its American debut with bi-coastal launch events with speakers including Arianna Huffington and Rachel Zoe. (I was honored to be asked to emcee these but sadly my schedule conflicted.)
On this week’s episode of Glambition Radio, Emma tells us how she started her first company when she was barely out of high school, what makes vulnerability the theme of her career, and why Biz Chicks was love at first sight.
It seems Emma was born with the entrepreneurial sprit: When she was seven years old, she organized the kids in her neighborhood to collect candy from their parents, repackage it, and sell it back to the moms and dads at a huge mark-up. She’d tapped into her moneymaking instincts and a natural talent to recruit a workforce – and by the time she was 21, Emma was running a staffing agency that pulled in close to three million a year! Looking for her next adventure, she attended a Biz Chicks luncheon, and made a connection that would change the course of her life.
But she admits she has her fearful moments as well…
By clicking the play button below, you can hear why Emma says admitting you’re scared is the best way to build a career in her Glambition Radio interview here.
Biz Chicks continues to evolve as it grows – and its strength is in its purpose. Members are genuinely motivated to help each other succeed rather than just gather to make contacts. Emma describes the organization as persons of all ages and stages of their career who are bold and into taking risks. I think Biz Chicks is going to do VERY well here in the States.
On this episode of Glambition Radio, Emma and I also discuss self-talk, the importance of outsourcing, and the motherhood juggle (she has four kids under age six!). I know you’ll get a lot out of this episode. So click the play button below and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now.
