As with every year, 2017 was a good year for some people. It turned out to be a very prosperous year for Whitney Wolfe Herd. She has not only made a few enhancements to Bumble app that has turned out to be a major success, she has also gotten married to Michael Herd. She is one of the people that has managed to make the most of her life and enjoy some of the benefits of success. She has ran plenty of events that not only promoted her app and business, but a new product that she is releasing to the public.
This is the room where they say the ‘power lunch’ was born. Last night at the launch of @bumblebizz we made it not about power, but empowerment. ‘Making moves’ in business is not just for men anymore. We had an empowered dinner, with a room of glass ceiling breaking women, raising glasses for women connecting by making the first move, and owning their confidence & their voices in business. Thank you to everyone who joined us last night and to all that have supported us on this journey—we’re just getting started. 🐝💼❣️
One of the reasons that Whitney Wolfe Herd has had a good year was that she has seen opportunities and has taken calculated risks. She has also connected with the right people in order to fulfill her goals. She has enjoyed all of the recognition and other benefits she has gotten from Bumble, BFF and finally, Bizz. One of the most important factors in her success is the thought she has put towards in her product. She worked with a purpose to make things easier for women and men. While she does seek to empower women, men are also enjoying the benefits from inventions.
Bumble was such a success that certain groups were trying to buy the app out. However, Whitney Wolfe has rejected a deal for selling it because there was so many different things that she has wanted to do with the Bumble brand. She also did not want it to get into the wrong hands and become something other than what it was intended for. Her business model has turned out to be perfect for her app.
Given that she has the purpose empowering women, she has also looked for ways that women can take charge of other aspects of their lives. One thing that she wants women to experience the most is freedom. She does not want women to have to depend on a man. At the same time, she does not want to demonize the man. She recognizes the good men in her life.
