Founder and CEO, Elaine Rau started LadyBossBlogger to find purpose again. She had just quit her really well-paying corporate job due to burnout. Her identity was so wrapped up in her previous employment that she needed to find herself again. She wanted to be a female entrepreneur but didn’t know the first thing about entrepreneurship! So she decided to blog about those who have gone before her and designed an interview with targeted questions in order to learn since she couldn’t afford a mentor. Her desire is to connect ladies from all around the world and create a network of sharing insight and expertise.
