My passion is empowering women to create a life they love living by equipping them to transform their brain, business and body for ultimate success.
I started this organization years ago as a hobby to grow my personal network. I was not satisfied with the various networking events I was attending so I decided to create my own! From our humble beginning we have grown and transformed through the years into a fabulous community of women who support, uplift and empower one another! And we are so much more than just a networking and referral group! We are also a social club and a boutique branding + marketing agency for women in business!
We rebranded from Uptown Women's Club to Badass Boss Babe Club in 2018.
In 2018 I was dealing with some major health issues that led in part to me having depression. It was not something I shared with anyone. Externally I was outgoing and cheerful and kept up the appearance that everything was fabulous. It wasn't. My body felt like crap and I was miserable. As a result, my business wasn't doing well.
In May of 2018 I decided to take control of my health. I started the Whole30 Program to reset my body and started to work out again.
A few days into my new health journey, Kate Spade committed suicide. This was a big wake up call for me! By external appearance this woman seemed to have it all! I mean everyone knows her brand! I realized that there are probably a lot of people out there who deal with depression. So that night I took to social media and posted about what I had been dealing with (you can read the original post here). I was amazed at the number of people who commented and private messaged me. Everything from encouragement to thanking me for sharing because they are dealing with something, too!
So I came up with the idea for a "Boss Babe Bootcamp", a three day retreat where women transform their brain, body and business for ultimate success! We wake up and do yoga or other exercise and meditate together and eat a healthy breakfast to prepare for the day. Then we have a series of business bootcamps to attend throughout the retreat where we get shit done!
The day is structured with 30-minute coffee breaks to network along with a healthy lunch and dinner together to foster networking. Community. Dinner is followed by free time to decompress or process the day. Finally, we end the day with a gratitude and pampering session sending us to bed with beautiful thoughts in our heads. Wake up and repeat!
After reading my post on Facebook, a friend suggested I listen to the audible "You Are a Badass" by Jen Cicero. Love. This. Audible. I listened to it all the time. Doing laundry. Working out. Doing dishes. Working. All the time.
While I was creating the materials for Boss Babe Bootcamp, I decided I wanted to rebrand the club! I had let other people control the path and the brand and it no longer represented me. Our logo was purple, and I don't even like purple! I looked down at my phone playing "You Are a Badass" and looked at my powerpoint and had an aha moment...
"We are going to be Badass Boss Babe Club!!"
So I created a brand new website within a couple hours, rebranded all our social media in the wee hours of the morning and designed our new business cards. In PINK! 💞
Then it was time to flip the switch! I almost turned back! But I knew it was the right thing to do for me and for the club. I did it! I sent out a big announcement in the morning and shared about our new brand. They loved it! YAY! Women are now contacting me saying "I want to be a Badass Boss Babe!!"
During 2020 I took a yearlong course and got certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach so I could truly lead a 360 degree approach to achieving and helping others achieve Brain, Business, Body balance so we can be Badass Boss Babes!
Through this journey I have learned that we are all in the same storm, but we are not all in the same boat. We go through our trials and tribulations to help others along the way who are dealing with something we've dealt with. I've also realized we need to talk more about depression to take away the stigma. It's okay to be depressed, just don't stay there. Surround yourself with people who inspire and uplift you. Feed your brain and your body well. Take control of your well-being and practice self-love/self-care often! You are worth it!!
I've learned that sometimes we go searching for our purpose and passion and sometimes our purpose and passion hunts us down! I know I was created to help women live a life filled with joy and abundance. My mission is to empower women. Empower them to live a life in motion. Empower them to be the boss of their business. Empower them to turn their to-do's into ta-da's! Empower them to be fit, fierce and fabulous!
I love coaching women how to succeed with clarity, confidence and consistency! I truly love helping women succeed. And I love connecting with women. Feel free to text me, shoot me an email or schedule a Zoom with me so we can connect and get to know one another! I'd love to know about you, what you do and how I can refer business to you.
And remember, you do you! Be authentic. Be genuine. Take risks. And shine bright like the freakin' supernova that you are!
I'm here if you need me! xoxo
