Who We Are
Empowering women to embrace that they are Powerful, Purposed, and Priceless!
It is our desire to foster a community where women discover their unique voice and purpose…and where we are the embodiment of being comfortable in our own skin without comparing ourselves to others. We vow to “Lean In” to each other and have each other’s back instead of tearing each other apart…and we vow to inspire other women to love themselves.
Become a woman who believes anything is possible and will succeed at what she focuses on. A woman who is confident and comfortable in her own skin; she doesn’t feel the need to compare herself to others or be who others expect her to be. A woman who believes unequivocally “I am enough.” She is vulnerable enough to ask for help, and can laugh at herself on good days and bad. A woman who embraces her leadership and build into those around her with individualized leadership styles.
Become a woman who wakes up with purpose and engages in the very things that make her passions ignite. A woman who wants to encourage all women in leadership, and wants to make a difference. A woman who dares to love, laugh, and live without regrets. She accepts the situation before her and longs for a better world…and she strives daily to make it a reality. This in turn will help her to lead, delegate, and execute what needs to be done to make her work, church, and community at large a better place.
Become a woman who embraces her unique voice, and shows up and never gives up. A woman who perseveres through adversity (even when she feels alone). Who realizes that she can learn more from her failures than from her success. A woman who does not allow herself to get tangled in her failures or entertain negative self talk. A woman who will be steadfast in retraining her brain to validate women, and see the positive in every woman. She is cognizant that her value is innate and immeasurable.
