Hello and welcome to Madame Success!

This blog is launched on 8. March 2017 by a Ukrainian and two Russian friends living in Paris.

We love telling the success stories of inspiring women from all over the world. Stories make the world smaller. By listening to each other’s success stories we can learn that each woman’s vision of success is unique. We ourselves define our own terms of success and find the ways to grow, to become better, to live a happier life, and to make the world a happier place.

Our goal is to increase awareness that our female world is a universal place. We want women from different cultures to learn from each other’s wins, share with each other what they love and what helped them to overcome difficulties.

We want every woman to be able to find her own, her personal definition of success and know that there are other women around who want the same, who have done the same, and who succeeded.

We just believe, if others did it, and it inspired you, you can do too!
