Our Manifesto

We are the heartbeat of female visionaries, everywhere. We are women building businesses,

and creating our own definitions of success! Excuse Us is a community, a pool…an ocean of love

and PASSION to say YES to our calling of entrepreneurship. Together we meet here, experienced and novice,

to share, laugh, witness, and lift up one another. No woman should have to wonder if she has enough guts or

money or experience to bring her idea into the world. All women, regardless of age, race,

background, beliefs or orientation have a voice in our community.

Excuse Us While We Succeed is a self-supporting body. As each of us find new levels of success,

we give back to those just beginning. There is no room for judgment here, because we all start

from a place of hope and lean into those who have paved the way.

We are mothers, daughters, friends, partners, and students and WE. BUILD. BUSINESSES.

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.
