Today we’d like to introduce you to Eugenia Doreen.
Hi Eugenia, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Have you ever had someone tell you that you wouldn’t make it or you would never amount to anything in life? Well, that was me. Facing adversity from an early age, I knew I had to make it out, and learn what that ultimately looked like for my life.
From surviving sexual assault, homelessness, foster care, and depression, I was able to learn that building a strong foundation for myself was necessary to becoming the woman I knew I could be. That foundation consists of a spiritual relationship (God, first and foremost), a sound education, ambition, and perseverance like no other. All of which have helped me transform.
Growing up, I always had a hustle, whether it was selling books, sugar, and kool-aid, cleaning out cars, or watching children, having my own form of support was very important to me. From there, I knew I wanted to run my own business, and over the years, I not only learned how to run a business, but I am now helping other women do the same.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has not always been a smooth road for me. From facing hardship as a child into my adulthood, I struggled with believing in myself, finding my voice, and even finding what I truly wanted to do in life.
These struggles, I feel are very common for any young adult and anyone thinking about starting a business. The countless hours of research, self-motivation, and sleepless nights are all things I feel no one told me about. Yet the experience was the best teacher I could ever have.
Now that I have learned from my struggles, I believe in sharing my mistakes with others in a way that can help them not make the same mistakes I did; in life and in business,
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Female Force Association, Inc., is a women’s empowerment networking corporation that is all about empowering the next woman to become the very best version of themselves. This is my passion. I absolutely love pouring into women, and helping them to develop, network, and thrive.
Women empowerment along with community development is much-needed worldwide. As I continue to do my part as a change agent to make a positive impact on those in my community, both domestically and internationally I encourage others to join the community and do the same.
FFA is an agency that hosts networking, empowerment, educational, and community events. All with one goal in mind, to advance the community. I am most proud of the success of the women who have worked with me and FFA. Seeing these women, grow and flourish is such a great feeling.
Their determination and desire to win and be around like-minded women is one reason I do what I do. I have been able to use my story, and my journey to help inspire and uplift others as a motivational speaker as well.
I believe what sets me apart from others is my genuine desire to help others grow, my willingness to always learn, and how I execute. Everyone is meant to do something and I believe I found what that is for me. Having the confidence and courage to just go for it has helped me tremendously.
I also know, that hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
We love surprises, fun facts, and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
Something surprising that most people may not know about me or my brand is that it started in my college dorm room. I would invite girls around campus to come and talk and network.
I created a safe place for women to vent, get advice, bounce ideas, and get business help. From there, it grew into what it is today.
