This is what it looks like when a woman owns her success
Momentum’s #SheOwnsHerSuccess is a call for every woman to proudly and unapologetically own their success. The four-part podcast series is spearheaded by the Womentum Tribe, a class of powerful women who make no apologies for their success, leaving broken barriers and shattered stereotypes in their wake.
In the final episode of the #SheOwnsHerSuccess podcast series, the Womentum Tribe furthers the conversation around why women who are owning their success are deemed arrogant in comparison to their male counterparts.
Thato shares her experience while dropping some much-needed tips on how to handle such situations. Fran supports Thato’s sentiments and further highlights the importance of women sharing their success with others and supporting one another. Economist, Sanisha delves deeper into the importance of financial independence for women.
The conversation concludes with each woman providing powerful and useful tips for other women.

Thato Moagi has no qualms getting her hands dirty. The farmer and agripreneur is developing and managing farming operations in Limpopo and the Western Cape breaking down stereotypes around agriculture.
Growing up in Johannesburg, I never really had an image of what a female farmer looked like. I knew what the farmer’s wife or daughter looked like, but a woman farming was not something I could associate with. Women did the admin on farms, the books in the background. My story has unfolded in such a way to show girls that women are farmers and they look like me.Thato Moagi, Managing Director — Legae La Banareng Farms
