Our Approach

We are not your typical networking group. In fact, we consider ourselves more of a support group for female entrepreneurs who have big dreams. We firmly believe that the entrepreneur journey should not be taken alone.

Through local and global events, we provide a platform to connect, excite, invest, and challenge our members. You will often find us laughing, crying, learning, leading, and holding each other accountable.

We are a real community of women who are on a mission to change the world with our products and services.

Our Story

It all started in Nashville, Tennessee when Amanda Lairsey wanted to form a "mastermind" group of bloggers. Twenty ladies who were wildly passionate about their products/services showed up to our first meeting and it grew from there. Now we have hundreds of women from across America actively supporting one another both virtually and in person through local meetups.
