I graduated with honors from a U.S. university with a degree in Accounting, then joined the corporate world like most people do. As an ambitious young woman, I quickly got my CPA license and started climbing the corporate ladder really quickly. I was a corporate manager before age 30, often managing people that were twice my age.
Though I love my job, one thing that always bothered me was how boring the offices and office supplies looked like. No bright colors, no pizzazz. Black, navy and dark grey always ruled, from company mugs and pens, to padfolios and laptop cases. Yes, the business world is still male- dominated and conservative; but something needed to be done for the ladies, so Andrea Stellgant™ was born.
Andrea Stellgant™ intends to offer elegant, yet practical items that fit the lifestyle of working women. It is about bringing elegance to our routines, from having a warm drink in the morning, working at a desk, to attending conferences and networking events.
Let’s face it: it takes a lot more efforts for women to be successful in business than men. If we are going to make it, why not do so with fancy pieces that make us feel good?
Andrea Stellgant ™ will donate a portion of the proceeds from the mug sales to Charity: Water. Charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. We feel very fortunate not to have to worry about the quality of the water used in our morning coffee or tea. That is a privilege that millions of people still do not have. I would like to invite you to learn more about this wonderful organization here.
