When Andrea started out in business sixteen years ago, she discovered very quickly that this was a very challenging path. Andrea was a mum, sick of corporate politics and doing the same thing over and over. Andrea had always wanted something her own, something meaningful and that helped others, but she had an idealised image of what owning a business would be like.

Andrea couldn’t have been more wrong. It was so much harder! She was following her dream, and yet she felt like the juggle of entrepreneurship and family was going to swallow her up. Andrea began to reach out to others for help or support and found some of the networks didn’t speak my language. And certainly didn’t share my philosophy that there is enough business for everyone. Andrea experienced some misogyny and sometimes wasn’t even taken seriously. There had to be a different way and Women with Altitude was born.
