Julia has a background in fundraising as well as filmmaking, and drove contributions to international human rights organizations, including Echoing Green, CPJ and Witness. She currently serves as Accelerator Chair of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) a program to help entrepreneurs get to one million dollars in revenues.

Over the past twenty years, women in the U.S. have started nearly twice as many businesses as men, but only three percent of all women business owners ever make revenues of one million dollars or more. Most are running “kitchen table” businesses, just getting by, or, in many cases, running out of cash.

Julia Pimsleur aims to change that with Million Dollar Women, a guide to taking your business to the million-dollar mark and beyond. Million Dollar Women introduces you to Pimsleur and seven other women who have raised capital, developed powerful networks, and built multimillion-dollar companies from scratch. She teaches you the concepts and the vocabulary you need to scale up and secure funding. She shows you how to network, when to delegate, and when to seek coaching and support.

Drawing on her own experiences as a CEO and naming “the elephants in the room” for women entrepreneurs, Pimsleur provides help for overcoming the practical and emotional hurdles you have to clear to leap to that next level. She breaks down what women need to do to Go Big into three simple, easy to follow steps and leaves audiences inspired, energized, and ready to transform their businesses and their lives.
