Message from our co-founder

After seeing the ecstatic reaction of runner-up Miss Nigeria when it was announced that the 2019 Miss Universe was Miss Jamaica, I was inspired to create SestraNow. Her response has left an indelible mark on me. It takes a special type of person to celebrate the achievements of someone else especially when she is your competition. That is the type of individual that we seek to join our network. Women have sometimes been labeled as catty, distrustful, and weak. There are a lot of us that need support whether it be emotional, physical, financial, etc. There are also many who have been blessed with access to resources that others have not. But no matter the case, everyone has something that she can bring to the table. Together, we can accomplish exponentially more than we ever could individually. By pooling our gifts, talents, and special abilities, we will create a solid, powerful, and effective structure that is based on cooperation rather than competition, service rather selfishness, grace rather than greed and sisterhood rather than solitude. SestraNow is the vehicle we use to celebrate, promote, and support women all over the world, assisting them to accomplish their dreams.

SESTRANOW at a Glance

Sisters Promoting Sisters

We are always searching for ways to promote and support our members. We have developed a concept that consists of us featuring 5 of our members during every third week of each month, one per day. We ask that each member share the featured sister's business or service information on her personal media platforms. This is a model that we are currently developing so any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Please contact Stephanie or Annette if you would like to be featured some time in the future. Let's do this!

Each Wednesday!

Each Wednesday at 7pm EST, we host different workshops and/or special presentations that are beneficial to us as women. We are open to requests and suggestions. Please inbox Stephanie@sestranow.com or Annette@sestranow.com if you have ideas or would like to host one yourself.

Most frequent questions and answers

The services are different because we are offering comprehensive support- we endeavor to address all needs- given by and to members within our Network.  We are fostering relationships, sisterhood, accountability, and compassion which serve as motivating factors that make us truly vested.  We do this on a “barter-like” basis.  Take a little, give back a little more.

The founders are black women and have a cognizable concern in furthering the unique and specific interests that that community faces.  SestraNow seeks to address and service these issues by incorporating the international community of women.  We can all benefit and learn from each other by rising above the divisions that race, nationality and culture can bring. We celebrate and embrace our differences rather than feeding into the narrative that these divisions have historically perpetuated. Across society, we identify with various subgroups. We encourage women to own that and be proud of who they are.  SestraNow does not seek to take away anyone’s individuality. We simply believe that we are stronger together. 

How is SestraNow ultimately going to make money?  Basic membership to SestraNow will always be free.  Our goal is to benefit and support all women regardless of socio-economic status.  We are in the developmental phases of the organization.  We invite our founding members (all 400+) to adopt our goal to develop a network based in unity, service, commitment, and prosperity. We are open to suggestions and we ask that you join us in the task of formulation and formalization.  “Alone it can be a struggle at times…If we link together as sisters, we’ll be unstoppable”, Stephanie Montgomery-Founder. The sky’s the limit and possibilities are endless.  We are determined that as we grow, our members rise with us and we can all prosper personally and collectively.  Profit is not our number one priority, but to achieve our shared goal of financial freedom, we expect this endeavor to ultimately lead to financial prosperity. However, we reject the drives of selfishness, pride, division and hate that have been fostered in our society.  First, we must build ourselves up emotionally, physically, and economically to take on this monumental task, through re-education, re-orientation and unification.

The idea is that if we each contribute whatever we can to our Network, we will experience a synergistic effect.  A large band of women is not easily broken.  In these initial phases, our founders and core members are putting in long hours and working hard with the expectation that step by step, as the mission is understood, more and more members will contribute.  When the responsibility and vision is shared, we would have realized our aim and that’s when we will experience exponential growth.  The sooner this happens, the sooner we rise!

We actively seek to diversify our membership.  We cannot successfully achieve our goals without a genuinely international and multi-cultural Network.  Right now, we must rely on our English-speaking sisters to develop our base.  We envision that these women will reach out to their respective communities and serve as liaisons and bridges to connect their non-English speaking sisters that share our vision and mission and invite them to join us. Leaders and individuals of different communities can best identify their respective needs and represent themselves. We plan to eventually have all our services and resources accessible through translation and other means of facilitating communication.  Co-founder Annette Hicks Gill expresses it this way, “True advocacy is creating a vehicle in which everyone can come to the table and let her own voice be heard.” We also expect to be able to tap into the best resources that women all around the globe have to offer without having the language barrier as a hindrance to SestraNow.  Imagine a United Nations of Women, only better!

SestraNow is not in competition with any women’s group, or any group for that matter.  We want to serve as a vehicle to connect all women, individually and collectively. In fact, we want to help promote all women’s groups, especially the smaller ones that can benefit from our network in a manner which is truly unique, efficient, valuable and above all honorable.  While networking, we can teach each other, learn from one another, and prosper together.  It’s a win-win.

What difference does it make whether you have 2 or 10,000? What is in it for you?  The larger our Network the less likely we are going to be ignored. We will demand respect in this male dominated world.  Third-parties will seek us out just because of our sheer numbers.  Think about the power we will have when we unite our consumer power together and use it to further our individual and collective goals.  Again, we are stronger together. 

Absolutely not! SestraNow welcomes all women no matter their profession or status.  We all have gifts, talents and abilities that can benefit other women.   We want to help you identify yours,  if you have not done so already and develop them.  We encourage all women to be their best self. We can all grow and improve regardless of our level of education and experience.
