Q. In light of this year's theme, "Inspire Inclusion," how has your journey as a woman in business inspired a sense of community or support among your peers?

A. Having my label, I design my pieces to make women feel their best. This has given me the opportunity to meet so many amazing women around the world. I have been so lucky to have met a huge variety of interesting ladies doing amazing things and where I can I try to connect people.

We have our social points where we have grown our community & also an ‘exclusive IQ’ Facebook group with loyal followers. We share behind the scenes from our photoshoots, previews of designs & archive samples with this group. We also love to ask our communities input on designs when we need the help and want the feedback of our customers.

Over the years I have done many mentorships with incredible women in the business. Their knowledge was so invaluable, and I have also shared a lot of my learnings with friends in businesses too! Last year I mentored a student at FBI college which was so rewarding! It was really nice to give back & help this young girl through questions and help her business grow!

Q. Considering the theme, what specific advice do you have for women entrepreneurs seeking to build supportive networks and connections within their industries?

A. Don’t be afraid, just get out there and do it! Chat to other women, go to events, hold events, reach out to people online. The more networking you do the more invaluable knowledge you gain! I think sometimes it’s easy to hold back or be intimidated to reach out to other women, but a lot of the time women are so happy to just help and share information and support each other! I personally try to catch up with another woman in business once a month. Set yourself a goal to push yourself out of your comfort to do coffee, dinner or go to a networking event once or twice a month!
