WOMEN TO WATCH

 

CAROLINE SCHEINFELD

Founder and CEO, 3WCircle

 

In a transient and fast-paced city like New York, Caroline Scheinfeld craved authentic connections. She created 3WCircle, a forum for women of different backgrounds to come together for group discussions about their challenges, goals and hopes.

 

The inspiration for 3wcircle…

After attending numerous conferences and networking events, I realized women were often collecting business cards rather than cultivating genuine connections. Convinced more women craved authenticity, I started a platform where women could share their agendas, stories and life lessons in an environment that fosters lasting relationships.

 

In a sentence, 3WCircle is…

A community for women to reflect, share, connect and redefine success and happiness.

 

The story behind the name…

The three Ws stand for “What Women Want” because 3WCircle is an outlet for women to find their purpose and path. The circle symbolizes that we are in this pursuit together.

 

When starting a company you must…

Learn to trust your instincts, be passionate, be willing to wear many hats and be very aware of your strengths and weaknesses.

 

 

Being your own boss…

Is great. Ironically, once you have the ability to choose your schedule, you never want to stop working!

 

The best advice I've ever received is…

Never be afraid to ask for help.

 

I love what I do because…

It’s not a job; it’s my life’s purpose.

 

I hope...

Women can support each other and adopt this statement from Brené Brown, Ph.D: "In relationships, we are given threads. We can use these threads to weave webs that trap others or to weave blankets of support.”
