Like everyone else we are adjusting to the ‘new normal’. We have taken the last week and a half to think about how we want to move forward and provide the best value for our community. To that end we are launching a zoom video series called “The New Normal.” These will be 10-minute interviews with female entrepreneurs and change makers in our community. We feel that community is more important than ever. Our mission at She’s On Top has always been to celebrate end elevate women and we feel this is the best way to do that. We are going to use these interviews to find out how women are adjusting personally and professionally in these challenging times. How are they pivoting their business? How can we as a community help them?
Our hope is that by sharing as many stories as possible we will be able to highlight and provide ideas on how we can come together and not only survive but thrive over the next few months.
We are not sure whether we will continue with the newsletter during this time period but regardless our videos will be shared on YouTube, LinkedIn, and Facebook at 4pm, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you’d like to be notified about these videos please make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel and click the bell button.
We are grateful for your continued support and hope that you will engage with us on one of our social media platforms and share your thoughts, feedback, requests, etc. We are here.
“When ‘I’ is replaced by ‘We’ even ‘Illness’ becomes ‘Wellness’.”
With love, Jessica and Tracy

An original Hulu production, now available on Netflix, Hilary is a 4 part documentary series on the life of Hilary Rodham Clinton. Whether you’re a fan or not, throw out everything you thought you knew and watch this. It is an incredibly honest, compelling binge-worthy documentary about the life of a passionate woman with strong convictions, dedicated to raising up the lives of women and serving her country. A woman who is aware of the polarizing views she evokes, when asked what she wanted her gravestone to read she replied – “She was neither as good or bad as people said she was.”
Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J Walker, is the original Netflix series about the first self-made female millionaire in the United States, who was also African American. It stars Octavia Spencer and is written by Nicole Jefferson Asher. Madam C. J Walker made her fortune developing and marketing a line of hair care products and cosmetics for African American women. There are many aspects to this woman’s legacy but perhaps the most important one is that she was able to employ 20,000 mostly African American female sales agents, offering them independence and a chance at a better future. A legacy that had a ripple effect for generations to come.
On the blog
In this blog, our ambassador, Melinda Wittstock, shares some thoughts and valuable insights on how to put a positive spin on some of the most challenging aspects of this strange new world we all find ourselves living in.
Whew-these are crazy times!!
As a business that works with youth sports teams…ummm…let’s just say that our amabassador Seanna Thomas has been brainstorming and keeping positive!
She wants to be of service to families with kiddos at this time. Since everyone is at home with their kids, trying to get work done-she wants to help with the boredom and the insatiable hunger that these kids seem to have!! They are ALWAYS. HUNGRY.
So she’s come up with “Snacktivities”. She’ll be delivering allergy friendly snacks and paper based activities to households in the GTA.
The Home Front was created to collect, distribute and supply frontline medical workers with personal protection equipment and other critically needed items. We have an amazing team of grassroots volunteers and the support of several foundation leaders in Ontario. Right now, we are looking for companies and individuals that can help with our fundraising efforts, so that we can purchase gloves and masks.
Normally we share a single podcast in this section, but today we are sharing a brand new series: Brené Brown’s highly anticipated “Unlocking Us“. This podcast launched last week, and within one day it was the most listened to in North America. Author of five New York Times best-selling books, Brene’ focuses on teaching us that vulnerability is not weakness, but is in fact the thing that requires the most courage. Her timing couldn’t be better.
Even though we are all self-isolating, we will always be connected by the thing that matters most, love. Please stay safe.
