(6) Maria LeFebre, founder of Your Local Girl Gang Cleveland

I attended my first Local Girl Gang event this past Thursday, downtown at Harness Cycle. It was a delight. As always my nervous, introverted self was reluctant to go but once I was there I had no regrets. I was able to connect with a bunch of Cleveland small business owners. Then just two days later I had the pleasure of interviewing Maria, the founder of Your Local Girl Gang Cleveland. She tells us all about how she got the idea to start the Girl Gang. Some of the other things we talk about include fear, the importance of women supporting women, and balancing a full time job while trying to launch a business. If you like this conversation please go ahead and leave a review or share with a friend.

Check out some of the women owned businesses we mention:

-Harness Cycle

-The Helm Collective

One of her favorite books right now is “I’ll be Gone in the Dark” by Michelle McNamara.

Her favorite hip hop albums:
