Mind on My Money & Money on My Mind!

By  | 


How many times have you come up with a bright idea but didn’t have the funding to bring it to life? Don’t beat yourself up, ladies because you’re certainly not alone. According to a survey conducted by Access to Finance, 47% of women delay launching their own business due to lack of funding opportunities. Having big dreams and a big bank account to match is the ideal scenario but as we know, this isn’t always the case. Enter

A friend of mine shared this website with me a couple days ago and after my first visit, I knew this was a resource that my readers absolutely needed to know about. Ideablob is an online social community which, according to their tagline, is “where ideas grow.” If you have an idea you’d like to see flourish, head on over to, become a member (aka “blobber”) and vie for your chance to win $10,000 to bring your concept to life. The contest ends on 3.31.09 so please don’t sleep!

As a New York City storyteller, filmmaker, digital content creator, and PR strategist, Renae Bluitt created "In Her Shoes" to empower and enlighten women committed to realizing their dreams.
