Woohoo! As the leaves paint the world in shades of gold and the air takes on a crisp embrace, Thanksgiving graces us with warmth, gratitude, and a chance to reflect. For vibrant women entrepreneurs like us, this festive season carries a profound significance—it’s not merely about turkey and pumpkin pie; it’s a celebration of our entrepreneurial odyssey, a toast to our tenacity, and a moment to embrace the vibrant community we’ve cultivated. Here are ten ways to make your Thanksgiving as a woman entrepreneur uniquely meaningful:

Reflect on Your Triumphs

  • Take a pause to savor the milestones your business conquered this year. Celebrate the grand victories and the little triumphs alike. This reflection extends beyond professional success; it’s about personal growth, resilience, and the remarkable journey that brought you to this point.

Express Gratitude to Your Support System

Thanksgiving provides the ideal backdrop to express gratitude to those who’ve stood by you—be it family, friends, employees, or mentors. Personalized thank-you notes, small tokens of appreciation, or a heartfelt verbal acknowledgment can work wonders.

Give Back to the Community

  • For many entrepreneurs, philanthropy is a guiding principle. Use this time to give back, whether through charitable donations, volunteering at a local shelter, or championing a cause close to your business values. This act not only supports the community but also fills your heart with fulfillment.

Network with a Thanksgiving Twist

  • Thanksgiving-themed networking events offer a delightful and festive avenue to connect with fellow entrepreneurs. Whether it’s a casual gathering or a more formal affair, these meet-ups foster a sense of community, shared experiences, and the building of a supportive network amid a relaxed and festive ambiance.

Strike a Balance Between Work and Celebration

  • For entrepreneurs, finding the equilibrium between work commitments and personal time is crucial. Set boundaries to ensure you relish Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Remember, taking time off to recharge is vital for your well-being and can breathe new life into your creativity and productivity.

Begin a Thanksgiving Tradition

  • Contemplate initiating a new Thanksgiving tradition that mirrors your entrepreneurial journey. Whether it’s a special meal, a family activity, or a community event, traditions forge lasting memories and offer a delightful way to celebrate your achievements annually.

Infuse Gratitude into Your Business

  • Weave the theme of gratitude into your business, whether through a special Thanksgiving offer for your customers, an appreciation event for your employees, or a social media campaign sharing your business journey’s thankful moments.


Plan for the Year Ahead

  • Use this moment to envision your goals for the coming year. Outline preliminary plans and let excitement build for what lies ahead.


Indulge in Self-Care

  • Thanksgiving is the perfect juncture for some well-deserved self-care. Engage in activities that relax and rejuvenate you—be it a spa day, losing yourself in a good book, or simply reveling in a tranquil moment.


Share Your Story

  • Thanksgiving revolves around storytelling. Share your entrepreneurial journey—whether through a blog post, a social media update, or at the Thanksgiving table. Let your story of resilience and success inspire others.

As we revel in Thanksgiving, let’s not forget—it’s more than just about turkey and trimmings. It’s a time to embrace gratitude, celebrate our entrepreneurial voyage, and relish the company of those who matter most. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at WEDO!
