Meet Priscilla Presley of The Forward Female
The timing couldn’t have been better. It all happened after we had just moved to to Los Angeles to pursue our dreams. My co-founder and I found that having a supportive network, resources and mentors were essential to success, but not always as easy to find. We recognized there was a better way to help empower women to work together, so we decided to do something about it. We set out on a mission to build the best female-focused community that gives our community the actual resources, support, and connections needed to move forward towards the career and life they’ve always wanted but have never known how to achieve. We wanted to help give women the resources and support needed to grow equally in the work force. We all deserve that!
Smooth Road? We have learned that when you’re an entrepreneur there is no such thing. There are always struggles and unexpected circumstances you can’t account for when you start a business. We have learned that the best way to move forward is to be flexible and be able to pivot along the way.

I really see success as a feeling that is ever evolving and that I am not always in control of. I see what most consider “failures” as my biggest success points and believe that we learn most from the situations most would not consider success. The more we learn, the more we are able to grow, and the more we are able to teach others.
I always try to gauge the balance in my life on if I am being truly successful. I want to try to be my best in all aspects of my life. I am more than a business owner. I am a daughter, partner, friend and mentor – with that I always want to be sure my success is not only focused on one portion of my life but across the board. I am focused on what I need and know that success comes from that and always encourage others to come from that perspective first.
