Starting any website is intense. Building SheByShe over the last 18 months has been all that and more.
Both Tanya and I have found our work with SheByShe to be immensely rewarding, and we've learned a lot. We've learned that women want their voices to be heard loud & clear. We've learned that women want to hear what 'real' women think. Most importantly, we've learned there is a 'there' there. By that we mean we've learned that SheByShe has a lot of future potential.
We've also learned that across the board women are too busy. In many of our surveys and in blogs submitted by SheByShe members, women tell us their lives are compromised because they are just too busy. Tanya and I don't want that for ourselves. We've realized we can't fully realize the full opportunity for SheByShe and run our 'day jobs' at the same time.
So, we're taking a pause. We're taking a temporary break to think strategically about the site. We do plan to 'restart' SheByShe when the time is right, so we hope you will stay tuned.
And, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and interest. It is greatly appreciated.
