#WCW: Ali Pincus, Hunter’s Alley founder and One Kings Lane co-founder
 
Ali is a true role-model entrepreneur, unafraid to use her strengths as a woman to lead in the male-dominated tech industry.  She’s smart, savvy, sweet and a sartorial guru. 
 
Her “it can be done” attitude is endlessly inspiring. For example, One Kings Lane launched in ’08–right in the middle of the financial crisis. The company has since raised over $229M in capital. 
“I show up every day as part of the team. The notion of power doesn’t really occur to me. It’s not my focus.”

My 3 takeaway lessons from Ali:
1. Challenging jobs can bring great opportunities.
2. Be sure you’re overly passionate when you start your own venture.
3. Don’t be afraid to ask for help
I love that Ali really values the people that she works with, and constantly strives to empower and inspire others. That’s why she is this week’s Girl Crush Of The Week.
