I want to have a heart-to-heart with you about something that’s been on my mind: the reality of limited resources and opportunities for women like us who hail from the heartland—whether it’s the Midwest, Appalachia, or the Ozarks. But fear not, because I firmly believe that despite the odds stacked against us, we have the power to carve out our own destinies and create the lives we deserve.

Let’s face it: growing up in rural areas often means facing an uphill battle when it comes to accessing education, support networks, and career opportunities. We might not have the same privileges and advantages as our urban counterparts, but that doesn’t mean we’re destined to be held back by our circumstances. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s up to us to roll up our sleeves and start building the futures we envision for ourselves.

Sure, it might be tough. We might have to blaze our own trails, overcome countless obstacles, and navigate uncharted territory. But isn’t that what makes our journey all the more rewarding? We have a resilience and a determination that runs deep in our veins—a grit that can’t be taught in any classroom or acquired through any amount of privilege.

So, where do we start? It begins with recognizing that the power to change our lives lies within us. We might not have access to fancy degrees or well-connected networks, but we have something even more valuable: the drive to succeed and the willingness to put in the hard work required to make our dreams a reality.

We must be proactive in seeking out opportunities for growth and advancement, whether it’s through online courses, self-study, or hands-on experience. We must be fearless in reaching out to mentors and role models who can offer guidance and support along the way. And most importantly, we must be unapologetic in our pursuit of success, refusing to let anyone or anything stand in the way of our ambitions.

But perhaps the most crucial piece of the puzzle is community. We may not have access to the same support networks as our urban counterparts, but that doesn’t mean we’re alone in this journey. That’s where “She Owns” comes in.

“She Owns” is more than just a community—it’s a sisterhood of like-minded women who understand the unique challenges we face and are committed to lifting each other up every step of the way.

You have the strength, the resilience, and the determination to overcome any obstacle that stands in your way. And with “She Owns” by your side, you’ll never have to face those challenges alone.
