Although International Women's Day was yesterday, every day should be used as an opportunity to uplift women everywhere, especially those who are running small businesses. And Camila Alves knows firsthand how hard running a small business can be, which is why she joined forces with Amazon Handmade and curated an incredible guide filled with products by made female artisans on Amazon.

"Handmade is a big passion of mine, you know, it's how I grew up doing things. My first business was all handmade handbags," Camila explained to E! News. "So I understand the challenges of doing things by hand and being a small business. And I founded 'Women of Today', many years ago when the purpose of creating space that encourages connection and community. That has content around food, wellness, family and home, and all of those feelers really resembled the community the Amazon Handmade fosters and it's under their umbrella. So, it was very natural to start. As a a business owner myself it's important to support other women-led businesses and small businesses."

In addition to creating a line of handcrafted handbags with her mom called My Muxo, Camila's entrepreneurial spirit moved her to create Women of Today, a digital platform focusing on health, wellness, style and community.

"The inspiration was to help the skills community. It is all about learning from each other, and how can we create a community that we are promoting and learning from each other and how to do better for you and how to do better for the ones you love in your community," the mom of three explained to E!. "It's very cool and just different things that we're doing, from everything that is out there with Women of Today, we're not talking to you, we are talking with you."

Besides empowering women everywhere and collaborating with Amazon, Camila has kept busy raising a beautiful family and, like so many, helping her kids with virtual school.

"It's a really crazy time for everybody in my household, I have three kids aged eight to 12," Camila told us. "I have my mother in law who is 89. My husband and I work. We don't have much of a helping hand at all. So it's been a lot of challenge. We've been watching a lot of Survivor. Survivor is like this show at the end of the night."
