2023 has just started and there are already some women who have come out the gate disrupting the game of entrepreneurship! Not taking no for an answer and causing new norms to be created…all while doing it their way! Statistics show that every since 1997, entrepreneurship among women is on a steady, rapid climb! According to Wikipedia, female entrepreneurs are women who run and manage an enterprise, especially a business. 

The women hand selected for this series are women who don’t mind making their presence felt no matter where they show up! They are women who know the power that resides in showing up in their communities, the importance of impacting the lives of women suffering at the hands of abuse-whether that mentally, physically, emotionally, and/or financially! They are the true definition of servitude. They believe that once a door is open, they must stop and hold it open for another woman to come through! 

Sheen had the opportunity to speak with these amazing women! See the interview below!

Meet Dr. Shana D.Lewis

Sheen: Tell the reading audience a little bit about what makes you grind as hard as you do?

Dr. Lewis: I am passionate about helping women stop killing themselves for the sake of success, other people or their agendas. I truly believe that a woman can not lead anyone else any where until she has first led herself to the place where she takes care of herself. The truth of the matter is no one is coming to save us. The one we have been waiting on is us so we must show up for ourselves first. We are too important to our families and communities for me to sit by and say or do nothing. We need an advocate and I am she!

Sheen: Why is quitting NOT an option?

Dr. Lewis: Quitting is not an option for me because there are too many women connected to me that require me to show up so she can get her breakthrough. My assignment is a spiritual one that I understand. I must do my part even when it’s hard. Even in the face of adversity. Even when it seems like nothing is going right or no one understands the vision I have been given.

Sheen: What  is your definition of self-care? And why must every woman do it?

Dr. Lewis: Self Care  is the act of engaging in activities that prevent or limit medical, mental, spiritual and/or psychological distress. It is the gift that we get to give ourselves daily although many of us fail to do so. Too often we will put ourselves last on our list if we make the list at all. We must realize that serving from an empty place or -E, as I call it, doesn’t work in the long run. We will eventually crash and burn. We must learn to fill ourselves up first so that we can serve from our overflow.

Sheen: What can people expect from you in 2023?

Dr. Lewis: You can expect me to continue to share the message of self care and self love in new ways including my brand new publication Save Yourself the magazine and my book Selfcare is the New Sexy, both which will be released Spring 2023. You can look for my international retreat in St. Martin Selfcare is the New Sexy the Retreat July 27-31.
