Why exactly are you doing this? As we mentioned on the About Être page, setting up a forum where girls could get valuable information and learn from accomplished women had always been on our minds. But it's more than that. Être exists because we think that girls your age represent their most authentic selves. Pursuing what you love and figuring out exactly who you want to be at this point is important. It's worthwhile. And, well, it should be fun.
Are you selling anything on the site? Right now Être exists as a non-commercial site. That means no tank tops or phone cases for sale...sorry. But that's why you don't see any ads on the site either. Just information, quotes and links to the stuff you need. Should that ever change, though, our plan would be to donate a large percentage of any proceeds to charities that benefit girls and young women. Because...#BeCharitable.
So you're not making any money here? Nope. Not a cent.
Why aren't there names on any of the quotes? We went back & forth on this one, but ultimately decided that no matter how famous, or infamous, any of our Être supporters might be (other than those shared by Ellevate)...the site wasn't for name-dropping. The wisdom imparted by these women should be the focus, and if we can deliver that to you while protecting their privacy - then everybody wins.
Do I have to register my email to access the site? Not at all - we want to protect your privacy too! For that reason you do not have to give us any information and we will not fill your inbox with a barrage of emails. You know where to find us...we'll be right here.
Is that why I can't post comments on the site? Yep. We're serious about keeping you safe and making sure that no personal or identifying information about you is ever posted on this site. If you email us a question or comment we will absolutely read it, and may address the topic on the site, but we will never, ever post your name or anything about you.
Are there other ways we can stay connected? Definitely! Come find us on Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter (all @etregirls) for inspirational quotes, awesome photos and a head's up as to what we'll be posting next!
I heard you are forming an Advisory Board...? We are - and it consists entirely of middle school & high school-age girls! No meetings, no homework - just vital Êtregirl feedback on a regular basis. And occasional swag.
If I send you cupcakes can I join Être's Advisory Board? While we love cupcakes (LOVE them), there is no need to bribe your way onto the Advisory Board...we're happy to have you! Simply shoot us an email to tell us why you want to participate, and we'll add you to the roster. Every few months we'll send around 5 simple questions and a space for you to add comments...that's it! Again, no names will be posted on the site. The Advisory Board is a great way for you to participate and for us to stay connected to what our Êtregirls are thinking.
If I email you, will you actually respond? 100%. Try it. We're here for you right now: firstname.lastname@example.org.
