Empower Me! Magazine is a quarterly print & digital magazine that focuses on issues that today’s upwardly mobile Professional and business owner deal with concerning growth strategies. The magazine covers topics in business ownership, small business management, corporate advancement, power networking, professional development, career management, leadership, relationship building, finance, negotiating, mentoring, social branding and entrepreneurship.
Our commitment is to spotlight successful men and women of all diverse backgrounds, and giving valuable learning lessons to professionals currently defining and exploring their career paths. The magazine serves as a catalyst to not just prepare for growth and advancement, but also genuine networking.
We differ from others because the magazine originated from networking first, while other magazines launched first, then followed up with events and attempted networking. They fall short in recognizing that networking requires engagement, follow through and follow up, and starts with building a strong community. It shouldn’t be thought of or offered only at quarterly or annual events. Our established community allows for the continued growth and expanded dialog amongst one another.
The Digital Edition of the magazine is NOT the same as the website. The Digital Edition is an identical electronic version of our print magazine available to paid subscribers. This website serves as a community for our readers and viewers to come together to read, watch, listen and discuss topics drawn from our bloggers, radio show, internet TV channel, magazine and our social media interaction.
