Last year, 28-year old Whitney Wolfe changed the atmosphere in the dating scene. She launched a dating app for women. The app allows women to look for their ideal men instead of waiting for men to initiate. While it was just supposed to be a business idea, the app changed the prevailing culture and created a lot of reaction from people.
This app is not just helping women to find eligible men. It is giving them power and confidence to go for what they want. Traditionally, men start the conversation or attention of the woman. Today, the world is different and women should not be misunderstood if they make their first move.
The success of this app has also encouraged women entrepreneurs. Whitney Wolfe is just a young woman under thirty years but she was not afraid to exploit her potential. Before, Whitney launched Bumble; she worked in an environment that did not satisfy her zeal. It inspired her to quit that job and start her own venture. Today, Whitney Wolfe is glad she followed her desired because they have paid off greatly. Whitney is encouraging other young women to follow suit. They should not be intimidated by the environment.
Recently, Bumble introduced another category for business networking. Bumble Bizz allows professionals to interact and share knowledge or ideas. People are wondering whether it is replacing LinkedIn but they are just competitors. It is good for business people and professionals to have several options to use.
Whitney Wolfe was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. She went to Southern Methodist University. She did a course in social sciences and did community work after college. Whitney even traveled to Southern Asia to work in orphanages. While doing all this work, Whitney probably never knew she would develop interest in technology and business.
Besides work and entrepreneurship, Whitney is a wife to Michael Wolfe. They got married in a color and beautiful wedding in 2017. The achievements of Whitney Wolfe are not just for her fulfillment. They are an inspiration to women. Whitney is a symbol of innovation and doing things differently.
The world may be dominated by men in many areas. However, women need to take up opportunities of changing the playing field. They are entitled to make positive changes in the society. Today it is no longer a big issue when a woman approaches a man. Thanks to Bumble App for changing that stereotypical view that has lasted for many years.
