About DailyWorth's Amanda Steinberg:
- Amanda is a user acquisition guru - Since DailyWorth's launch in January 2009, they have garnered 300,000+ subscribers and a stream of media appearances, including New York Times, Forbes, USA Today and a recent two-page spread on CEO Amanda Steinberg in Cosmo!
- She bootstrapped until she had a few thousand subscribers - When she was on the right track with DailyWorth and armed with that early progress, Amanda raised a friends and family round and used it until she had a solid base of advertisers and a formula for acquiring customers. With a solid business model, Amanda was raised more money in her series A round than targeted, reported Inc.
- She believes in teaching women to realize their worth - "No one is going to fix financial inequity for women. We have to recognize our own self-worth, ask for higher salaries, invest more aggressively, and build our own wealth," the DailyWorth CEO told Ladies Who Launch.
- Amanda teaches women to play financial hardball - she says "Many women don't have a bag of tricks when it comes to pricing, contracts, invoicing and collections. Especially collections! In areas of cash flow management, you have to be willing to play hardball. I give women a bag of tricks and teach them how to play hardball."
