11 Powerhouse Creative Women In Business You Should Be Following
"If we surround ourselves with people who are successful, who are forward-moving, who are positive, who are focused on producing results, who support us, it will challenge us to be more and do more and share more. if you can surround yourself with people who will never let you settle for less than you can be, you have the greatest gift that anyone can hope for."
Tony Robbins, Unlimited Power
One of the many blessings that social media has had on my life the last 10 years of doing business online is the amazing women that I have had the honor to connect with and follow. Women who pride themselves in operating from a space of authenticity and integrity, women who believe in collaboration over competition (and I think we can all agree that in this noisy online space we need more women like that in our lives).
I want to share these 11 incredible women with you so you too can experience and grow from their stories, gifts and talents. Many of these women I have the privilege of personally knowing and working with, others I closely follow for my own personal growth. It's my hope that you will find some valuable connections here, women you can connect with and learn from as you journey through building your own business and brand.
Melissa Bolton is copywriter and brand therapist who specializes in working with relationship-oriented, thoughtful visionaries. More specifically, [but not limited to]: coaches, indie business owners, photographers, designers, artists, Etsy transplants, boutique owners, small business start-ups, seasoned vets looking to rebrand, and those looking to take the leap and expand into the online community. I have followed Melissa for quite a while now and she never ceases to amaze me with her expertise and authentic approach. She has an amazing FREE Archetype Quiz that you definitely want to check out.

Kendra is a Mompreneur, a High-Performance Coach, and a Business Strategist and Consultant. She’s also an unabashedly dedicated wife and mother and she considers those the most important roles she plays in her life. On her journey from corporate America to entrepreneurship, she quickly recognized a deep need for a like-minded, non-competitive community to bring female entrepreneurs together to help them scale-up their business without overwhelm. This is how Aspire To Be International was founded in 2017, which is now recognized as one of the fastest organically growing communities helping six-figure earners grow to seven.
When Kendra isn't coaching private clients or attending to her value-driven community, she is most definitely with her family enjoying the outdoors and life's precious moments. I have had the honor of working with Kendra and consider her to be a dynamic woman of business + faith in my circle.

Amy is the founder of Social Lab Marketing and one of those connections I would have never made if I had not been networking in Facebook groups. She is the Facebook Ad guru and I had the privilege of hopping on a Skype call with her to connect and learn more about her brand and business. I love her business ethics, she shares so many of the same values as I do. That business should be done from a soul centered space focusing on quality over quantity. If you are looking to learn and keep up with the constant changes of Facebook and Facebook Ads Amy is an invaluable resource.
Michelle is the founder of Faithful Workouts and has been in the fitness industry since 1984.

Bess will tell you she lives her dream daily as founder and CEO of FRESH Start. Her leadership skills are put to use daily as she wears the many hats that developing this organization demands. She has served in the roles of Health Coach, radio show host, speaker and author, coach trainer and mentor, program developer and more as she has worked faithfully to build these organizations from the ground up since January 2011. For me personally she is all these things and so much more as a dear friend and sister in Christ.
