Let’s be honest…


As women, we all need more open conversations around the realities of running a business.

The internet still wants us to think that overnight success is real (it isn’t.)

And no matter how hard we try not to, it’s easy to get lost in the idea that we have to consistently ‘win.’

Luckily for you, can.did. conversation is our thing.


As the world reopens, we’re here to cut through the noise on your behalf.

Connect you with business owners that crave transparency and meaningful connections.

And provide tangible security to protect you and your business,

so that you can refocus on building a business that lasts.

We’re powered by…

can.did. conversation

From our members-only network to our events, we’ll never tell you that running a business is easy. We’re here for every moment that reminds you it’s not.

can.did. conversation

genuine connection

We don’t do cliques or status. We care about working together to find solutions to challenges and creating meaningful connections that last.


tangible security

From free Vala health cover for you and your family to pension, insurance, legal and maternity support, our benefits package is the first-of-its-kind for women-owned businesses and has you covered long-term.


Backed up with…

long-term thinking

We’re calling time on the ‘overnight success’ myth. After all, the tortoise won the race in the end eh?


a 'we' not 'me' mindset

We encourage all members to ask ‘how can I help others?’ Not simply, ‘how can others help me?’

ongoing development

We’re committed to ongoing development, even if it’s not always easy and support all members as they learn and progress too.

can.did. hasn’t just popped out of nowhere…

Once upon a time we were called She can. She did. What started as a project to provide more honesty across the business landscape back in the summer of 2017, very quickly evolved into a business on a much chunkier mission…

Are we a good fit?

If you’re a freelancer, self-employed or director of a limited company, we’re off to a good start…

But genuine connection, honesty and long-term thinking are at the core of can.did. and in a viral world, we know that means we’re not for everyone…

Just want access to the can.did. benefits?

Good for you.

We’re fully on board with anyone who wants to invest in their long-term security.

In fact, we wish more business owners would.
