At Dreamers // Doers we work hard to unite trailblazing women who are givers = it's our secret weapon for making dreams happen.
==> We enable women to leverage each other as a resource and source of inspiration, herewith allowing us all to achieve more, together.
For this to work, it takes a certain woman with a strong burning desire to elevate other women just as much as herself. For that reason, we curate for personality and potential, over purely pedigree. The results speak for themselves.

Why it’s good to be a “giver” (not a “taker” or “matcher”) if you have big dreams, are interested in being highly successful.
“...best performers are givers; takers and matchers are more likely to land in the middle.”
“...there’s something distinctive that happens when givers succeed: it spreads and cascades. When takers win, there’s usually someone else who loses."
"Research shows that people tend to envy successful takers and look for ways to knock them down a notch."
"In contrast, when [givers] win, people are rooting for them and supporting them, rather than gunning for them."
"Givers succeed in a way that creates a ripple effect, enhancing the success of people around them. You’ll see that the difference lies in how giver success creates value, instead of just claiming it.”
BUT why it’s equally important to set boundaries as a giver:
Fact: the most successful people in this world are givers but that's only half of the story.
