WEST PALM BEACH, FL, March 8, 2017 – In celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD), Experimac honors its female franchisees. Today, and every day, we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political accomplishments of women around the world and within our own company.
IWD 2017 Theme – #BeBoldForChange
With the theme chosen for this year, #BeBoldForChange, Experimac is proud of the women within our organization that have been bold and taken action in their own lives. We look forward to working with more women looking to advance their career and take it in a new direction to improve the world around them.
The Women of Experimac
Experimac boasts over a dozen women owners of its franchises. Here’s a glimpse at some of the women of Experimac:
Michelle Foley – Experimac of Garland, TX
With 20 years of IT experience, she was looking for her next (ad)venture. The goal for Michelle was to build something for herself and her young son instead of building something for someone else. Michelle says, “If I could share 1 piece of advice for other women considering entrepreneurship, it would be this: Do it for yourself, on your own terms, but build a team of trusted advisors. Someone else has learned the hard lessons, learn from them.”
Eliza Mallue – Experimac of Dayton, OH
Eliza says she did not mean to become an entrepreneur, it just kind of happened for her. Working for her family’s business for over 10 years, she realized it was time to start a different business for herself. Eliza says, “The most important wisdom I could give to any aspiring female entrepreneur is to surround yourself with positive people. Create a tribe of people that you can learn and grow from, both personally and in your business.”
Rina Sehgal – Experimac of NE Dallas, TX
As a busy wife, mother, and women and children’s advocate, Rina worked for AT&T Retail Operations for 17 years before deciding to venture into her own business with help and encouragement from family and friends.
Allison Stahl – Experimac of Pickerington, OH
Allison, a Mechanical Engineer, spent more than 11 years traveling for her career and was ready to get off the road and buy a business of her own. Allison says, “It is a great feeling to walk out onto my showroom floor to help a person find just the right computer or tablet for their needs.”
