I’m grateful for entrepreneurs that want to help others- the business owners we featured this week have a genuine desire to help others reach their goals. Starting with Molly Welch all the way through with Lisa Nicole Bell on Friday.

This week’s guests graciously gave actionable advice without hesitation. Vicky Lyashenko, the Small Business Gal, came back on the show to tell us about her use of Jelly on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Sandy Sidhu shared how she’s reshaping her business and gave us a tech perspective on some of the big headlines of the week. On Thursday we celebrated Galentine’s Day in the morning and in the evening we got down to business. My guests (engaged couple) Omar and Nicole shared on three pressing questions, every YFE has had at some point. I was greatful to have been able to kick off the week with Molly of My Own Molly and end it with Lisa Nicole Bell. I have incredible admiration for both women for their drive and continuous movement, all while making it seem effortless.

Finally, my vlog for this week is my entry for BSchool with Marie Forleo. Please check it out (above) to find out more about why YFE utilizes live webcasting to bring young female entrepreneurs together on a daily basis.

Thanks for showing up live, watching, and getting in on the conversation every week!

I love today’s Daily ACTION Item: “Write out a positive affirmation on 10 post-it notes. Post around your desk, home, car, etc.” If you do it, be sure to take a picture and tag it with #YFEaction on Twitter and Instagram. I’d love to see what is motivating you to stay in a positive, go-get em’ space today!

Speaking of go get em’ attitudes- have you watched Alex Beadon’s feature on #YFEchat LIVE yet? It’s a fantastic reminder to get started, regardless of whether or not you feel like it’s the right time or you feel prepared. Her course registration for The School of Killer Impressions closes tonight at midnight, so be sure to you check it out today.

Along with Alex’s #YFEchat LIVE appearance we also had features from Colleen DeBaise of The Story Exchange who shared a cool opportunity for young, female entrepreneurs (see Friday and the notes link below) and Monday’s inspiring message from Francine Weinberg. Francine invented a product for air carryon made out of safe plastics. Quite the accomplishment!

Finally, I got to geek out with a couple of dudes. On Tuesday I featured Trello (see notes link below for more) and was fortunate to have their Customer Evangelist, Ben on. If you’re not using Trello to organize your projects yet, you’re missing out! And, on Wednesday I got to feature fellow webcaster and gamer Chase when we talked about some of my favorite Superbowl Ads.

It’s my birthday today, so I’m feeling especially grateful for all that has happened in the last year for YFE and my company, Ovaleye. Thank you so much for being part of my life and all that our community does each week.

This week brought us a wide variety a young, female entrepreneur features on Jenn Cast that were each full of information in their own way. #YFEchat featured one half of the mother/daughter duo behind HorseFeathers Gifts that was recently featured by Gary Vaynerchuk for their use of Facebook Marketing. That was a note taking one for sure!

Apart from the live webcasts where we were able to meet up over chat, YFE debuted the February ACTION Calendar to our members yesterday. Each day includes a new ACTION to take as young, female entrepreneurs. Share what you do on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #YFEaction to meet others who have similar interests and goals as you!

You might notice on the Calendar that I ended up going with Baby Boom for our Lazy Sunday Twitter Chat. I LOVED having everyone’s input, thank you! Ultimately, Baby Boom is streaming on Netflix now making it easy for all of us to participate. Plus, I’ll get to play with some fun promotional messages around the corporate euphemisms, Diane Keaton meltdowns, and shoulder pads…

My intention for host live webcasts on YFElive.com is to bring together YFEs to meet over chat and hopefully grow their relationships on other networks post-live event. Even better is when you take those relationships offline and into the real world! This week we had five opportunities to meet online. Jenn Cast is just 15 minutes Monday-Friday at 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern. There is a featured guest and topic of discussion live on video, which helps the chat flow. #YFEchat LIVE is 30 minutes and functions more as a casual happy hour get together.

Every live webcast is recorded and put up on Youtube, our blog, and on iTunes via audio and video formats. My hope is that the shows will give you something of value everyday that you can watch or listen to while at the gym, making dinner, or getting busy work done.

Moving our opportunities to meet up offline, if you are in New York City or Los Angeles, be sure to check out your upcoming meetups that bring together your YFE peers!

Hope to see you at a live webcast this week (Monday-Friday 10am Pacific on YFElive.com & on Thursday at 6pm Pacific)! Thanks for watching.
