Celebrate National Women's Day with Mei!

September 22 is National Business Women's Day! Business Women's Day is about honoring the increasing role that women have to play in the world of business today. While there is still some work that needs to be done for women to have a level playing field in all industries around the world, there is no denying that great leaps have been taken. This date is the perfect opportunity to acknowledge those strides and pay tribute to those that have had a massive role in making them. ⁠ ⁠

Our founder Mei Xu looks back at the start of her journey in entrepreneurship in her How I Built This podcast with Guy Raz.

While I’m driving, I often tune into one of my favorite podcasts, NPR’s “How I Built This” where host Guy Raz dives into the stories behind some of the world’s most successful companies to share their launch stories, inspirations and make-or-break moments.

I’m honored and humbled to be a featured story on the “How I Built This” podcast and invite you to tune in to hear my journey from my arrival in the US as an “alien” at the airport to being invited to the White House seated next to President Barrack Obama as a panelist sharing advice on US job-creation at the White House Forum on Insourcing American Jobs.

Knowing how companies are formed, what drives people to innovate, and why entrepreneurs take risks is both interesting and empowering, is what we’re about at yesshemay.com, where we introduce you to inspiring and global women-owned businesses and their founders.

Entrepreneurship can be lonely, but by connecting with other successful business owners, we can help each other build better enterprises. To that end, I founded Yes She May to connect and unite woman entrepreneurs from all lines of businesses with other fellow women entrepreneurs. Is there a female founder you want to see on Yes She May? Join us today, share your voice, and make a difference in the world of women's business!
