Face your Giants with Dr. Shekina Farr Moore
Chief Executive Officer, Formidable Woman ®
“To run your business like a business, you will need a supporting cast—an A-Team. A chartered professional accountant, a publicist, a social media manager, an attorney, a bank business consultant, an insurance agent, and assistants. In my line of work, I also have writers, stylists, photographers, board members, webmasters, and coaches. Your supporting cast is key as they help to keep you focused on your main thing—working on your business. I learned from many failures that I am only as strong as my team. So, fire fast and hire slow so that you can work with those who are truly about this life.”
I run Formidable Woman®, an international confidence and women's empowerment brand whose mission is to champion confidence in women. Our ideal client is the woman who looks great on paper but who hasn’t yet accepted her greatness. She needs an usher like I did. What sets us apart is our holistic approach to building and equipping women with confidence. Confidence is such a key factor in personal, social, emotional, and professional development. It literally transcends all areas of our lives and can make or break both our success and access. With this in mind, we have built and continue to offer products, tools, courses, and services that build this confidence in women—Business, Image, Mindset, Finances, Relationships, Health, Education.
Having been a woman who has struggled with confidence, my journey to gaining it made me want to see every woman experience it. It completely alters how we show up in the world. It opens doors and rolls out carpets. I moved to Atlanta with a 9-month-old baby on a wing and a prayer. I was unhappy, overweight, had lost friends, and was overwhelmed with feelings of failure. Five years later I was named among Atlanta’s Power 25 and lauded by the Mayor, Georgia House of Representatives and President Barack Obama. I became a Formidable Woman® by simply making a decision. I share this story not to brag, but to echo to anyone in similar circumstances that you are one decision away from a 180-degree turn-around.
