Sophia Amoruso, a NYT bestselling author and entrepreneur. She founded Nasty Gal in 2016 which was named one of “the fastest growing companies” and then founded GirlBoss two years later which was turned into a Netflix series. Forbes named her one of the richest self-made women in the world. Her story is so inspiring. #womanwednesday #braveboldboundless
Meet Alexa Gantous! She is a creative brand strategist focused on eco consulting. Her interdisciplinary approach uses design thinking as a tool for ecological innovation, and the power of play as a way to co-create positive cultural impact.
She is a co-founder of @litterrally_ , a mobile trash pickup dance party that connects people to environmental action through fun. The movement puts local communities and music at the forefront of the most pressing cultural shift of our times, and elevates joy as a radical form of resistance.
Here are her tips and tricks:
-Embody your mission. When you live and breathe what you stand for, the universe will conspire in your favor and the right people will naturally gravitate towards you.
-Be willing to experiment and iterate. The only constant is change and it’s important to know when to allow things to evolve.
-Don’t hesitate to ask for support and advice. It takes a village to bring a vision to life, and people are way more willing to lend a hand or their time than you might think. #braveboldboundless #DesignYourOwnFuture #tuesdaytips
Believe in yourself and your vision. #startupsunday #braveboldboundless #DesignYourOwnFuture

Afton Vechery and Carly Leahy, founded @modernfertility in 2017 to provide women with more affordable and accessible reproductive health products. Within two years, the startup raised over $22 million and have since launched their first product - an at home fertility test. It is amazing that they are working to “fill the biggest information gap in women’s health”. #womenwednesday #braveboldboundless #DesignYourOwnFuture
Meet Dara Chike-Obi (pictured) and Lydia Contreras, founders of NwaBebe! We are two professional women who simultaneously juggled the demanding responsibilities of work, graduate school, and parenthood. Despite our balancing act, the major driver of stress and anxiety was found in the all-encompassing infant feeding routine. At 5 to 7 hours a day, feeding a baby is truly a full time job. We wanted to make that time more productive, efficient and pleasant for everyone involved.
NwaBebe overhauls the feeding experience with a baby bottle system that boosts emotional and mental development. The system’s sensory modules evolve along the child’s developmental timeline and are shown to engage the child and reduce fussiness during those unpredictable feeds . We’re turning feeds into learning feats!
Here is their entrepreneurial advice:
You cannot do this alone! No matter how brilliant the idea, it takes a village to bring it to fruition. Make sure your “tribe” is just as passionate as you while possessing individual strengths that COMPLEMENT your own. #tuesdaytips #braveboldboundless #DesignYourOwnFuture
Never change your goal. This #mondaymotivation is sure to resonate as our plans may not always unfold exactly as planned. #braveboldboundless

Meet @miss_laraaya !
My name is Lara Adekoya and I am the Founder of Fleurs et Sel. I was born and raised in Seattle, but spent part of my high school years in France. (I'm bilingual and named Fleurs et Sel after my two favorite things - flowers and salt). I am most passionate about understanding different cultures, bringing people together, and being authentic and of service to others. That’s how Fleurs et Sel started – my yearn for connection and bringing people together during the Pandemic when we were under Stay at Home Orders due to Covid-19. I am proud to have my own business centered around something that I love and am passionate about. I am excited for the opportunity to share my story with others in hope of inspiring others and being an example to others. I have a sweet tooth (surprise) and my favorite cookie is my sea salt chocolate chip.
Here are her #tuesdaytips :
Being an entrepreneur is one thing. Being a female entrepreneur is another! The words of advice that I have are – if you are passionate about it, follow it through. I believe that the more I put into my business, then more I will get out. Being authentic is important. Having a strong back bone is important. Always arrive to the table or any discussion with confidence and head held high. I’ve had to hold my ground talking to a lot of very important people – with money, power, capital, existing businesses, you name it. I’m just a young woman (of color too) with a big heart and a big dream. They can’t take that away from me and I won’t let anyone get in the way of my dreams! Having confidence and being fearless are important. And, never forget to embrace being a woman, being feminine and being yourself. That’s my motto. #braveboldboundless #DesignYourOwnFuture
Congratulations to Kamala Harris, the nations first female VP of color. She is a role model for women and children across the United States that aspire to be political figures and fight for change in our country. #braveboldboundless
