"Dream, Girl": A Celebration of Empowering Female Entrepreneurship in Miami

“The film every little girl (and grown up girl, too) should see. It may just change how she dreams."

World Tour, Miami Premiere

The film raised $100,000 in 30 days on Kickstarter, the filmmakers then made it onto Oprah's SuperSoul100 list, and The White House Council of Women and Girls featured the film at The White House.

“Dream, Girl” is on a world tour and can only be seen at community screenings — this is the film’s Miami screening! Get excited :) 

In “Dream, Girl” inspiring lady bosses (including Marie Forleo, Mariama Camara, and more) share how they address challenges unique to women in business — from being the only woman in the room, to expectations of what women should/shouldn’t wear, to questions of motherhood (and more). 

This is a night of empowering real talk, where you will be inspired, encourage, and supported by "Dream, Girl" (a film & worldwide network of women who believe in your hustle!), a dynamic panel of Miami-based female entrepreneurs, a mini-workshop on negotiating, and a supportive community that boldly celebrates you -- Miami's lady bosses! Brought to you by You're Already You in partnership with the Miami Girls Foundation. 

Join other entrepreneurs from across Miami and South Florida for a memorable night of connection, celebration, and determination to confidently become financially empowered on your own terms. Dream big. Dream, girl.

Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur, side-hustler, or ambitious business owner in the early stages of your business growth, come celebrate your greatness, your possibilities, and the epic truth and vision that boils inside of you. You're not alone. You're with us!
