Why We Do It

For so many, publishing is a life-long dream. It was for most of the women on our team. Women's voices have been drastically absent from the cultural narrative and as long as we continue to be sidelined by the logistic, emotional and energetic obstacles of writing & publishing nothing will change. We have a global & yet very personal mission, to support 10,000 women to become successful published authorpreneurs & thought-leaders.  

Once I was published my first book, I realized that I had cracked the code; the methods I used could help others like me who wanted to share their message but didn’t have the framework to make it happen. So we made it our mission to guide as many people as possible. 

The first time I saw my name in print was a deeply empowering moment. We want that moment for thousands more women. The ripple effect from there can change everything.
