Our Story

Starting your own business can be daunting. But with the right support and guidance,

you can achieve the level of success you’ve always wanted.


That’s why we created Excuse Us While We Succeed, a community for female

entrepreneurs and business women that offers the resources, expertise, and

friendship you need to turn those big dreams into a thriving business with real



Founded by Realtor Ashley Sandahl in Western North Carolina, and joined by

hundreds of seasoned entrepreneurs from around the country, the members of our

organization are intimately familiar with the challenges of being your own boss and

saw a need and desire to support other women striking out on their own, building their

brand, establishing their voice and footing in a sometimes formidable marketplace, and

making a lasting professional mark in their respective industries.


This group is for all women who dare to dream big. Join us to inspire each other, lift each

other up, and become the most savvy in the biz.


Networking Events

We host monthly casual and inspiring networking gatherings with fellow female entrepreneurs to share stories and lift each other up, to become a united presence in our community.
