BLAST out of that Corporate chair into meaningful work you love.

It can feel daunting to think about shifting careers and transitioning to entrepreneurship. Now you have a community waiting to support you. You don’t have to go it alone!

Not everyone makes the transition from “Executive to Entrepreneur” the right or easy way. Take me for example…

When I left my corporate job, I wasn’t prepared to become an entrepreneur. Heck, I didn’t know there was anything to prepare for! And I proceeded to make every mistake in the book before discovering my true passion and connecting it to a mission.

Our mission is to help other women with an entrepreneurial spirit prepare to successfully exit corporate America. And build a business you LOVE.

We are all about connecting, mentoring, supporting, resourcing to help you launch the business of your dreams.

Let’s rewrite the rules of business together, and show the world the Power of a Circle of Women.

I am a Corporate ‘Fugee. If you are too, or aspire to be, I invite you to come along on this journey with like-minded women.

You don’t have to go it alone.
