Does being original and authentic help or hurt you in business? Frequently, women try to succeed in business by looking to others and following accepted norms. They attempt to enter the conventional business world and play by conventional (often male) business rules and gradually find that their spirit is worn down by the experience. However, the most successful entrepreneurs and business people are those who are their unique selves. Being authentic and tapping into your creativity and innovation is what brings happiness to your life, thereby cultivating value and success. Magatte Wade believes that the best way for a woman to succeed is for her to be her most vivacious, feminine, authentic self.
Magatte was born in Senegal, educated in France and began her career in the U.S. as an executive recruiter in Silicon Valley for start-ups such as Google and WebEx while they were still small companies. She then created Adina World Beverages, a start-up based on indigenous Senegalese recipes. She is now creating Tiossan, a skin care company based on indigenous Senegalese recipes, which has received media coverage from CNN, Forbes, BBC, etc. Magatte was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum at Davos and is frequent speaker at business conferences and college campuses, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Brown, Dartmouth, MIT, Wharton, Babson, etc. Forbes magazine named Magatte Wade one of the “20 Youngest Power Women of Africa” and one of “15 Women Boosting the Continent of Africa” by Madame Figaro.
