Becoming an Entrepreneur

Become the entrepreneur you know you can be.

At Doyenne, we believe people become entrepreneurs by learning through experience. This, of course, means that you don’t really know what you’re doing when you start. Duh! Most of us understand that we develop skills through practice and good coaching. So, why would we think starting a new venture would be any different? Now, to be clear, inexperience as an entrepreneur doesn’t mean you aren’t a smart and capable badass. It just means you’re new to this particular journey.

Doyenne is here to help, from Day 1. We offer multiple opportunities to for you to develop your knowledge and skills, and grow into the best entrepreneur you can be. Doyenne gives you the time, space, and assistance needed to own your dream, develop your talent, and take bold actions to move your venture forward.


As an entrepreneur, you are often so consumed with the day-to-day aspects of running your business (and/or managing your life) that you may have trouble finding time to focus on the big picture – where you want to be in 3-5 years. You have a lot of ideas, but aren’t sure which ones are actually good, or how to go about accomplishing them, or what is the best use of your time. Sound familiar? If the answer is yes, then you are right on track. You just need some help. The Doyenne Retreat would be a valuable next step.


Founder Series

Entrepreneurship can be a very isolating experience. You have launched your business and are working hard to grow it. Sometimes, it feels like you are making everything up as you go along, without any real help in learning what it means to lead a company. Good news…you are NOT alone.

The Doyenne Founder Series brings together a cohort of 5-15 women entrepreneurs who are seeking support in developing their identities and skills as CEOs or Executive Directors of startup ventures. As a member of the cohort, you will have access to a curated set of learning materials focused on entrepreneurial leadership, the opportunity to engage your peers in discussions, and support from an expert Doyenne facilitator.

You get this suggestion from family and friends, you read about the research in the press, you hear it in the stories of accomplished leaders. Sounds good, but how do you go about getting that coaching?
