    Savor The Success’ Rock the World conference gathers America’s top, female entrepreneurs and executives to inspire and empower women to build a prosperous business and life. Attendees learn how to develop essential leadership skills, increase productivity and recruit top quality staff, all while networking with like-minded women. Rock the World provides conference attendees with the nuts-and-bolts know-how, resources, strategies, and connections needed to succeed.

    Angela Jia Kim founded Savor the Success in 2009 with the goal of inspiring, encouraging and enabling female entrepreneurs to “have it all.” The first meeting took place in Angela’s living room with just two other women and four years later has grown to 20,000 approved online members. Women who have a business can sign up for an online profile for free and can upgrade to clubs according to where they are in their businesses.

    As a mother, wife and entrepreneur herself, Angela understands a thriving small business is good for the American economy and for the family unit since entrepreneurship offers women and men more flexibility. Savor the Success’ rapid growth is a testament to the fact that these beliefs resonate around the country.

    “I started the conference to inspire women entrepreneurs and executives to build a successful business or career and design the lifestyle they want. Hearing from other women who have done just that is so inspiring,” says Kim. “We started humbly with just a few small monthly gatherings in New York City. As we grew, we had to find bigger spaces. Our first official conference four years ago sold out within a month, and it has grown every year since.”

    Rock the World members have been featured on MSNBC and in The Wall Street Journal, Self Magazine, and other major media outlets.

    “Media have told us that this is the place they come to find story ideas, inspiration, industry experts and their resources for stories," Kim says.
