Angela De Souza Helps Business Women Network
1. One sentence that describes what you do…
Angela De Souza is the founder and CEO of Women’s Business Club, a national support networking for women.
2. The first thing I do when I wake up…
Have a smoothie and some ‘me time’ of prayer and meditation then off to the gym! I always find that if I start the day right then the rest of the day is better regardless of what joys and challenges I face.

4. My favorite business tools are…
- Infusionsoft – or any good automation CRM but I currently use Keap’s Infusionsoft
- Zapier – I just love how Zapier is like having an extra staff member on my team, it does so much for such a small amount of money
- IFTT – a great way to save time by linking things up
- Recurpost – yet another great time saver
- My Wobble Cushion – sometimes I don’t realize how long I spend sitting and this amazing little thing saves my backs and keeps me moving. I try to stand up and move around as much as possible but when I am engrossed in something I don’t notice the time fly by.
5. On my bookshelf, you will find…
- Shameless plug! A ton of my own books – www.angeladesouza.com/books
- Find Your Flame
- The Positive Leader
- Winning With People
6. Every woman needs to try this at least once…
Something that scares you! It will be different for everyone but you should all give something scary a goal. For me, it’s horseriding, I absolutely love riding but it terrifies me at the same time.
7. My favorite beauty brands and items…
I use products from the members of the Women’s Business Club, I try to buy from members as much as possible to support their business. My favorites are Mary K from Nadezhda Hardiman and I am currently trying Codex and it’s fantastic (available at John Lewis).
8. The best piece of advice I’ve ever received…

9. Daily things you do in your business…
- Social media – I am constantly chatting to people across all social media channels. It does take up a lot of time but it is a great way to connect with so many people. I plan to do a lot less this year though and hand it over more to the team as it really does take up a huge amount of time.
- Strategy – another large portion of my time is spent analyzing finances and systems then strategizing accordingly to make things even better.
- Leadership training – I write leadership training material for our leaders and produce videos for our Business Leader’s Academy.
- Public speaking – I do a lot of public speaking so travel a lot around the country visiting our clubs, delivering talks and attending conferences.
